So I jumped into the series at book 4 not knowing what has happened to create the situation the characters of the book are having to survive, but as the story progressed it was somewhat explained, so i didn’t feel i had to go back and read the other books in the series.

Out of curiosity I may read them, only because the survival skills taught in this book are detailed and worth learning. This book finds the survivors of what seems to be a grid shutdown getting by on what they can hunt or gather. Living in the swamps of the Southern USA there seems to be plenty of food if you know what to gather or how to. The descriptions provided in this book of how the characters get by, at times, seem like a how to manual. But surviving hunger isn’t the only battle, the Department of Homeland Security is run by private contractors who are imprisoning the population rather than assisting, and bands of scavengers are running loose taking what they can

The narrator, Duke Fontaine, does a great job plunging us into this post apocalyptic world, capturing the psyches and speech of the characters flawlessly.

Publisher’s Summary
They survived the collapse, but can they survive the aftermath?

Morgan Carter has weathered the weeks after the collapse of the nation’s power grid, reuniting with his family and ensuring their safety, but his struggle isn’t over yet. Carter must focus on survival in an increasingly unstable society – but the challenges he faces are beyond his wildest imagination.

Meanwhile, the enclosed quarters of the nearby government-run refugee camp make for an environment where injury, assault and murder are the norm. As Jess creates trouble within the camp, Sarge and his crew plot to take down the entire establishment.

From the author of the hit Survivalist series books, Forsaking Home is an action-packed adventure that depicts the harrowing possibilities of a world gone awry, and the courage it takes to protect what matters most.
