Last Stand: Patriots by William H. Weber (Book 2)

After just having finished Book 1 of the series, I jumped in the next chapter of the “Last Stand”, aptly called Patriots.

The story takes place only three months after an EMP strike left Americans to fend for themselves in a fight for survival of the best equipped. The first book dealt with one of the worst doomsday scenarios – envisioning a world where there are no more computers, electronics or any of the gadgets that make our lives so easy.

The second book tackles a wider story arc – where John Mack and his family find their peaceful new existence shattered when a tyrant seizes control of the nearby town of Oneida.
