Publisher's Summary

When newcomers arrive in Conor Maguire's territory, they bring word of an enemy approaching from the north. They wear military uniforms, carry military weapons, and drive military trucks. Like a plaque of locusts, they sweep through every town in their path and pick it clean. In their wake, they leave ashes and atrocity.

When it appears this enemy is on a collision course with their community, Conor must build an army to intercept them. This is no easy task since his daughter's abrasive manner has divided the community. Their hasty alliance will be tested. Roles and relationships will be challenged.

Against this larger, more highly trained force, it falls on Conor to do what he does best. To rain chaos, savagery, and utter devastation upon his enemy. After all, there's a reason they call him "The Mad Mick".

The Mad Mick Series is a post-apocalyptic fan favorite. There's no prepper tips or helpful information, just fast-paced post-apocalyptic adventure.

More of the madness

Mr. Horton is among the top authors in the genre and he doesn't disappoint. This book was hard to put down and really easy to read and follow along with the story and especially the characters. But why the reason for only 4 stars.

To be honest, I don't know. Something was missing which is rare for Franklin's work. This one seemed over the top and the heroics of the Mad Mick forced to an extent.

Kevin Pierce didn't disappoint and it is almost like listening to a friend who is a really good storyteller tell a tale. He is that good.

The premise of the book was good, as we know in these end of the world tales, we see bad people. These were the worst of the bad and well, that is where I think we were missing. This evil group rode from town to town taking what they wanted and killing who the wanted. Yet, no one left the town and passed the "be on the lookout word" aside from the homeless lady. Everyone just stayed in and let them be evil.

There there is cast.
Conor - far too good at what he does. A killer for good, almost like a modern-day robin hood, yet the town he protects wants nothing to do with him. Conor finds a way to embarrasses "the Bond" crew and goes to work.
The Bond - A trained army like group of gang members who Conor is set to collide with.
Barb - An unlikable bully who is maybe the worst female supporting character in any series. She does have a partial awakening and gets a view of how others look at her.
The town - a city full of brainwashed followers who aren't capable of self-protection and don't like women.
Shannon, Regas, and Doc - endearing characters who make the book enjoyable. Shannon comes into her own.
Wayne and crew - fitting in nicely, seems that Wayne and Connor have sparked a kinship between two hard men that have seen the ugly the world has to offer.

Yes, this is a good read and has great action sequences however, I can't say that this is near the top of Franklin Horton's work.

Maybe you'll enjoy it.

One of the best series out there !!!!

If you have not read this author's work, then you are missing out big time. I like the detail in the characters, they simply come to life in the minds eye. As you follow the characters you will experience a full range of emotions. And if that was not enough, the story lines will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will be tempted to go without sleep just to get to the end.

Another home run by Franklin Horton!

Book 3 in the Mad Mick series is a blockbuster of post-apocalyptic fiction! Non-stop action, a believable story and great characters! Franklin has a great writing style that keeps you on the edge of your seat and Kevin Pierce’s narration skill is outstanding! His ability to change tone and inflection for different characters while maintaining consistency makes you feel like you’re actually listening to the characters themselves. Well worth a listen. I loved it!

it was ok

it was ok . but it had a lot of pretty unbelievable coincidences and things that happened to the main characters. pretty far fetched. although the narrator is really good it starts to run a lot of books in this genre together

The 3 books have been very enjoyable. Perhaps not quite the standard of the Borrowed World.
