Publisher's Summary

El Paso wasn’t the Promised Land that Ian and his crew had hoped for, but it wasn’t a total bust either. The concept of a safe haven in today’s world was a fool’s errand at best. This was the consensus of their tiny band and to keep moving their only salvation. While others waited in their pens, the four from the private security company moved on, taking on as many they could help, in hopes that they too would join the fight. Their journey was long and arduous, but it was worth it...they hope. 

El Paso is where the final evidence that this is more than a simple lab experiment gone wrong is. It was too focused, with too many players who knew too much too early in the game, causing assumptions to be made. Assumptions that gained strength with every step they took until the small troop was convinced that this was not just a simple virus of natural origins. America was under attack. 

For Which We Stand is a postapocalyptic thriller that lends credence to the fears that many share. Is it possible? No one can say. Five Roads to Texas is but one of hundreds of end-of-the-world scenarios. We all know it’s coming; how and when are the only questions.

Not Really Engaged

This book really didn't do anything for me. It was a bit too much of a snapshot without enough scope and plot. I realize it is part of a larger body of work, but it didn't really fit in well. The writing is a bit choppy and the author relies on cliches and catch phrases too much. Overall it just didn't connect.
The book is narrated by Andrew B. Wehrlen who does a decent job.

North Korean master plan!

As the series continues our crew knows it’s time to get out of El Paso and head for the nearest safe house in Scottsdale, while picking up survivors along the way. They come across a canine training facility besieged by infected, rescuing the owner and several dogs; two in particular, Jasper and Thor, which will prove very handy in weeks to come. Jasper was earmarked for Ian and Thor went to Hosea. Evidently the North Koreans and Iranians have plans for our resources and infrastructure so nukes are a no-no. The virus set loose on our country is to remove most if not all of the resistance. Then the invasion can commence full force. At least that’s the master plan. Will it succeed?

A great continuation of Ian's story

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

I have to admit, while I did like the anthology (Book 1) a lot and Sidney's story (After the Roads Book 2), I enjoyed this one the most so far. Maybe because the story stayed focused on Ian or maybe because they were involved more with the part of the narrative involving the people starting the whole thing or what but I did.

We pick up with Ian where the short story in Book 1 ended and while it's a little slow at first, we're given a lot of new information too. There's a bunch of new characters (I love the Toms and the blacksmiths) and you finally get to see the true villains of the overall story. It was also interesting to see that there were still some military people alive and out there fighting, trying to bring some order back to the chaos. Ian is a reluctant hero, he doesn't really want to go around saving people but he can't just leave them to fend for themselves either, so he does what he can to help and when he gets unexpected help from the army, it's that much better.

While we don't find out everything the villains are up to, we do get to see the scope and depth of their evil. Ian finds out just how many supply depots have been set up, how well they're stocked and it's shocking, to say the least. That people, enemies, can do this right under our noses is scary. I did want to smack Ian for being stupid more than once but as he freely admits, he's not the smartest, which is why he surrounds himself with the best, to make up for his shortcomings. But how he couldn't see that the talk at the end of the book wasn't a trap, I have no idea.

Mr. Wehrlen again does a great job at narrating, keeping even the slow spots interesting and ratcheting up the action to the point where you don't want to stop listening. The characters, for the most part, have their own personality and you either end up loving them (Ian and his group) or hating them (the hippies from the stadium/mall). They mostly have distinct voices so it wasn't too hard to follow along on who was talking.

Overall, a great sequel to a good book and I can't wait to see more of Ian's story but more from the other characters too.

Great Addition to The Five Roads to Texas Series

For Which We Stand: Ian's Road (A Five Roads to Texas Novel) written by Joseph Hansen a member of Phalanx Press. The Narration is done by Andrew B. Wehrlen. This is technically the third book in the Five Roads to Texas Universe. After the First group collaboration, it appears each author is taking a character and developing a separate storyline in this amazing new Zom-Poc Universe they have created.

This audiobook follows Ian and his crew as they wisely escape El Paso and head west. This is a fun New World that the members of Phalanx Press have created. The zombie-like creatures and humans provide some excellent material for world building adventures that really holds the listener's attention. The narration by Mr. Wehrlen is once again excellent. He provides an outstanding performance giving each character their own unique voice and creating the perfect amount of dramatic tension throughout the performance. The production value is of the highest quality by the publisher Phalanx Press. The performance crisp and clear through the entire audiobook.

Great zombie fiction

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I have really enjoyed the other Five Roads to Texas books. This was just as good, in my opinion. Andrew Wehrlen did a great job of bringing this book to life. If you are a fan of the zombie apocalypse genre, you should definitely pick these books up.

A 5* read/listen.

For Which We Stand: Ian's Road (A Five Roads to Texas Novel). - This collaboration where each author writes his own novel in a linked experience is a great concept, and this novel supplies all you need in post apoc entertainment. Fast paced loads of action and a storyline with surprises.
Narration is excellent and ABW's style adds to the book.

More military genre based

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really enjoyed the characters in this book as they developed from the first in the series. I really don't care for military books, this book veered more into that genre than the 1st book in the series. I am really looking forward to the next books to see what happens to the characters from book 1. This book had plenty of twists to keep you interested, even more so if you enjoy military genre books.
