Publisher's Summary

Joe and his band of intrepid survivors have joined a larger group of survivalists. They are making life much better by implementing mutual-assistance groups that help protect each other and barter among themselves. 

While life is getting better, there are still threats to handle and pains to endure. The loss of a several loved members rocks the group and shakes its faith. Joe and Cobie make sure the group uses the pain to make the group stronger as they fight to rid Oregon and Northern California of gangs and slavers. 

Life is tough in the apocalypse, but this band is a tough bunch of survivors.

What happened here?

I really enjoyed the series until this book. The idea of Grandma planning ahead for SHTF and leaving that legacy to her grandson first by her Will, then in the form of letters of encouragement, secret maps and words of wisdom is something that really appealed to me as a very clever writing tool.
Joe too was a very appealing character. He was likable and normal, the average guy trying to survive and help people.
However somewhere in the first third of this book, the characters started to act, well, out of character. Joe went from helpful to hard without any real transition. Chloe became timid. Then not timid. Then timid again. It was weird! I had to keep backing up the book to re-listen to scenes to make sure the characters talking were actually the ones I thought were talking.
The last part of the book jumped around like crazy. Joe became a father, then a grandfather in the blink of an eye. The people captured and flown away were just...gone. The resolution to this was a note from the author saying he was going to write a separate series about this-- and that's fine, but he needed to resolve what was happening here first!
I'm really sad to write this review, because until this book, I really liked this series a lot!

I wish this wasn't the last one!

Such a great series! I would highly suggest this to everyone who likes dystopian books. there is even teen drama for those who like Hunger Games or the like.
