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.

The Empire is coming

This is the fourth book in the Dark New World series. I read the first three books some time ago and I was pleased to see the fourth book released. In this installment we find the clan has regrouped after the near ending of the clan at hands of the White Stag crew lead by the vicious Peter. The clan is now focused on forging relationships with near by groups of survivors for the benefits of both trade and security. It's becoming very clear that the Empire is coming and the next big battle looms in the upcoming fifth book.

So glad I stuck w/1st bk & continued.

This has been a very good series. I'm anxious to hear some more from this author. And of course, reader Kevin Pierce can't be beat!

another 5 book in the series

if you haven't read this series you need to start from the beginning but worth it and has many lessons. speaking for myself I have acreage and have started developing the land in a way that mirrors the food Forest described better in book to I believe. it's okay being a prepper but never having to need everything your land provides
