Publisher's Summary

The Clan is reborn amidst pain and blood, scarred but stronger than ever, only to find that new threats face them from all sides. New friends also make their appearance, however, and Cassy must forge these into the beginnings of a greater alliance to have any chance of keeping their newfound freedom. The Clan must hurry because the looming Empire to the west may well be the least of their worries as the Dying Time continues all around them. America's invaders have made their way inland, threatening Cassy's alliance before it even really begins....

    "Great Series!"

    If you like the apocalypse novels, you will love this one.

    The characters are well thought out and the author breathes life into them in a way that makes the reader connect in some way with each of them.

    While the genre is replete with various different scenarios and possibilities, this particular series captures the most ominous and brings them together in a believable story. The survivors vary in their attitudes and experience levels which gives the reader a realistic look at the survivability of each event.

    Definitely a great story with potential yet to be unlocked!

    "What the heck is a gasifier?"

    Now that the Clan has defeated Peter and his White Stag townsfolk they are able to relax just a bit and enjoy their new freedom. Relaxation would not last long though as living in the apocalypse required constant vigilance, maintenance, and updates to the community. A trader traveling through the area shocked Clan members with his transportation. The trader came rolling through the gate in an F-250 pick-up pulling a trailer containing a wood burning contraption. The wood burning furnace, called a gasifier, was the fuel that powered the vehicle instead of gasoline. A deal was quickly construed for the trader to bring them a gasifier in the spring when he came through again. Cassy, community leader together with the community council members decided it would be beneficial to mount a trading mission immediately to the town where the gasifiers were constructed instead of waiting until next spring. This would also be an opportunity to make new friends and establish allies to strengthen their defense. Should the trader come through with another gasifier all the better. The Clan remained alert for any sign or news of trouble heading their way; the confrontation with Peter and White Stag was still fresh in their minds. The military was out there and they should be making plans to oppose the invaders in the West. This too was on Cassy’s radar as a potential threat. Within the community a stranger named Nestor dwelt. Nestor was a dual personality psychopath. When the “other” came to the forefront he became a mass murderer hearing the sounds of battle as a symphony and the people as actors on the stage. Nestor was definitely a problem. All these issues besides the day-to-day running of the farm and the community were a constant drain on Cassy’s mental and physical state. This is Cassy’s story and the Clan; Cassy’s Clan. Kevin Pierce is wonderful as usual.

    "Understanding the goal"

    The believability of such a tale is a little far fetched. I do believe that ordinary people can rise up and do extraordinarily things but not on a regular basis. As far for entertainment, this books score high marks and was enjoyable to listen to.

    "enjoyable sequel"

    I like this series and the writing has been consistently original throughout the story. This installment carries on those traits. There is a deeper plunge into the storyline that doesn't fall off into the other Apocalypse themes.
    There is plenty of action, excitement and anticipation. I recommend reading this book.

    Story
    "Jazz and Chuny huh. :)"

    I like the way things are heading in the novel. I believe there's only one book left and I can't wait to start it, but I truly have to wonder if one book will be able to close up all of what the first four books have assembled. Other than that this is an awesome book series.

    "The story weakens"

    This book is so much slower and less interesting than the prior ones in the series. I found myself wanting to abandon it many times.
