In The Collapse, the government stops working, guns and ammo are in high demand, and a trip to the gas station has become a mission rather than an errand. Grant and the Team see these warning signs and know it is only the beginning, so they begin taking action to protect themselves and their loved ones. As they prepare to get out of dodge after a deadly incident in Grant's neighborhood, they will soon learn whether the preparations they made in Book One will be enough to survive the breakdown of society.

I enjoyed the slightly different take on societal collapse. I am afraid the political and financial background was a little confusing for an average reader.

Having most of the women in the book being helpless wimps with normalcy bias got really old. There are women preppers to who don’t appreciate that stereotype.

Morgan and his extended family could see the light at the end of the tunnel, dim though it may be. There was the promise of power once again. The plant was being repaired, and it looked as though it may actually run. While it meant lots of hard, sweaty work, the reward was worth the investment. The farm was growing strong, and community involvement was good. People were finally coming to terms with the fact that they needed to work together. So far Mother Nature had been on their side. But that, too, was about to change.

  • A lot of filler and not a lot of substance.

I love this series. I hang on every word. This book was so disappointing. Every other chapter was like a slapstick episode of three stooges. Sarge is one of my favorite characters. I can only hope the author is going down the dementia road to explain how horrible that character was in this book. I was left with a picture of him poking people's eyes out and hitting them with his hat.

The narrator was great as always. I do wish he would learn the proper pronunciation of these towns in Florida. It's annoying.

Just skip to the last two chapters. The rest is worthless.

Clifton Chase is the latest target for bully Ryan Rivales. But after he finds a mysterious arrow in his closet, he takes Ryan's bet to see who can hit the target. Ryan nails the bull's-eye, but Clifton's piece of junk arrow sails out of sight and when he finally finds it, something isn't right. Somehow, Clifton has been magically transported back to 1485 England, where he meets two princes bullied by their tyrant uncle who locked them in prison to steal their throne.

This was definitely for children that won't be driven crazy by inaccuracies. It was cute, especially being set partially in my town, but common misconceptions about the medieval era are replete throughout the book.

The male actor speaks so softly that you had volume issues. If I could hear him, the woman narrator was much too loud.
