Best-selling author Bobby Akart once again masterfully tells a tale of a nation on the edge of societal collapse. For decades, Americans had found themselves increasingly at odds with one another - politically, socially, and culturally. In Doomsday Minutemen, the Doomsday series concludes as the conspiracy reveals itself, and those responsible for leading the nation to the brink of a civil war are exposed.

In the tragic aftermath of the clash with the marauders, Luke has walked out. No one knows where he's gone, and no one knows if he'll be back. With only reminders of tragedy behind him, he sets off to fight his demons on his own terms, his first time alone in the ruins of America. Will he find solace he is looking for or only more danger and death?

Book 2 of the series American Apocalypse continues the heroic struggles of an unlikely band of survivors in Southern Oregon. Joe Harp, the leader, was an overweight auto mechanic without any special survival skills. He had never been in the military but did know how to hunt, fish, and camp. He also had some notes his Grandma left him plus some survival books and supplies his Grandpa left him in an old cabin in the woods. Cobie Simms worked as a clerk at an outdoors store. She was working hard to survive before the SHTF while raising her daughter alone. Joe and Cobie team up to fight the evil around them and make life better for those in their small group.

Jack Bunker vowed to never step foot on another battlefield. But the former combat engineer’s new peaceful life in the Colorado mountains is shattered after an attack takes out America’s power grid. When suspicious activity plagues the nearby high-security military facility, Bunker fears he’ll soon have another war on his hands. As the story unfolds, Bunker suspects a foreign invasion is imminent, leaving him no other choice but to somehow transform the mild-mannered townsfolk into military-grade guerrilla warriors. He knows if their small town surrenders, America won’t be far behind.
