Publisher's Summary

The Blue Ridge Resistance is the third book in The New Homefront series and picks up where The Guardians left off.

The main characters have struggled to survive in a nation that underwent what appeared to be an orchestrated collapse, with several elements joining together to bring America to its knees. With the country and its infrastructure still in disarray, and with power struggles and conflict within all levels of government delaying a recovery, people must fend for themselves in order to survive.

As the residents of the Homefront and their homesteading community find themselves running low on supplies, they must venture outside of their East Tennessee mountain hideaway in search of what they need, while the outside world begins to jeopardize the stability and security they have worked so hard to achieve.

Join with them as they continue to fight the evil and tyranny in their new world, while they strive to maintain their own dignity and humanity.

If you like action-adventure, prepper, SHTF, TEOTWAWKI, patriotic, survival fiction, you should check out this series.

Narrator could use improvement.

I love this series of books, the narrator was ok except for mispronunciation of a lot of words. Overall good though.

I got a cold

What did you like best about The Blue Ridge Resistance? What did you like least?

I really like the first book in this series. Second was okay. But this one just didn't work on so many levels. Particularly irritating is the narration. It is slow...too slow for the pace of the writing. Speeding it up doesn't help, in fact makes it more irritating. Don't get me wrong the narrator is a good reader and changes character flawlessly, however his choice of voice representing a black man is just idiotic. He simply plugs his nose and sounds like a white man with a cold. Sorry about political correctness and all. But it is 98% likely that a black man in the south will not sound like a white guy with a cold. Just go for it. Be authentic. It is not racist to adopt the accent and diction of a southern black man. Just go there and make it real. I'm done with these. Just lost interest and confidence that it will get any better.

Terrible

It may not have been the worst book I've ever read, but it's the worst book I've read in a long time. Too much moralizing, it's the apocalypse, Make the hard decisions and get on with the story. I didn't finish the book, but he did have a happy ending, because audible gave me my credit back.

Good but need a better reader

The reader did not properly pronounce some words. The story is painful, but realistic. Will continue the series.

biggest crybabies I've ever heard.

Good story good series, but the reader shouldn't try to do impersonations he isn't good at. Everyone is so whiney it makes me sick. Everyone. All the time. I have a hard time connecting even religious folks being such big cry babies all the time. I'm religious but grew up on farms and hard workers and not one single person was such babies. Even while talking about running out of coffee! These are not the tough bunch the author wrote of. While I'm on it, why do most of the characters have stuffed up noses? The portrayal of the black affect actually made me laugh almost as hard as the attempt at the thick New York affect. This would have been a better read.

A tale of life, love, duty and loss.

The quasi-militia group the homestead families assembled are known as the Guardians (book two). The Guardians continue to protect their own, expanding and fortifying their community as they deal with the day-to-day realities of the collapse. Time to start sending out scouting teams on scavenging and supply runs to supplement their stores. Our boys run into more marauders and save a few more survivors. NATO troops ironically called "peacekeepers" appear at the request of the government administration whose task is to put down any opposition. Lots of action, great characters. A tale of life, love, duty and loss. I'm looking forward to book four "The Resolution".

Good series.

I love this genre. I consider the story line to be scary and at least a little bit believable. Worth a listen. Reader is fine to good. I think they did a bunch of work with his performance and is way better than book 2.

A good final - maybe (perhaps spoilers be warned)

Any additional comments?

very enjoyable conclusion. Great story and great characters all coming to the great ending, well the only complaint I have is that the ending seemed rushed. Perhaps I expected a drawn out end with more well, more battle. But this is not a complaint perhaps just a wish for a longer ending for the series was most enjoyable and actually sad if this is the end. I will eagerly look for more from Stephen C. Bird.

Narration was excellent, Patrick Freeman did a great job.

Recommended.
