I loved Nash, which was a surprise to me for reasons that become apparent when you read it, and the integration of characters old and new is brilliant. To pull off an accurate western book is hard: to chuck a load of zombies into the mix and still make the story realistic, endearing, shocking and unputdownable too is an awesome feat, and Angela Scott pulls this off with aplomb.
I have only one question: when is book 3 out?
One not to be missed, in my opinion.
The Kindle Book Review
That being said, I remembered enough to get into the story--though it took me a little while--but I think my taste n books has changed a little since then and I'm not sure if I'm interested in finishing the series.
A group of strangers brought together in book one, due to various circumstances, some within their control, and others totally out of their control, have gone from strangers to being a family. A changed world surrounds them, and the need for survival is the uppermost thought on everybody's mind. Having found a safe haven, the reality that they will have to move on hits them hard as supplies dwindle and biters gather around their temporary home by the hordes. Even the zombies are hunting for the last vestiges of food in the wilds of the west. What do Red, Trace, and Wen need to do?
The answer is the premise of the intense book that is Survivor Roundup. Winter has strapped the group of supplies, everything is running low and with a new mouth to feed, they have to make some hard choices. Trace and Red, the fittest of the bunch head out to scavenge for supplies, promising to return to the group within the fort, return to their family. Red, has changed, in more ways than one. Love, can be both a wanted joy, and a dangerous enemy. For love, we sacrifice much more than we normally might. Here is where Scott marches into a tremendously powerful plot, filled with emotion, action, challenges, and definitely evil.
Survivor Roundup is packed with poignant decisions that the characters must make in a split-second or risk death or maybe worse, undeath. Every character is challenged and new characters appear that have been perfectly crafted to fit within the existing story seamlessly. The story is superb, I cannot tell you how deftly Scott has taken you from one book to the next without a hiccup, and moved forward with the plot, only strengthening the foundation of an awesome series. The ending of book two, also was less sappy and more realistic to the story being told... my one tiny criticism for book one. The end was solid and very touching, providing closure on some fronts and opening new doors on others.
I personally am 100% addicted to Angela Scott's writing style, and in particular this series, but will definitely be checking out her other series (see below) very soon. I see great promise in Scott's skill and talent, and many more top sellers in her future.
As the group got split, we don't know anything of Wen, Caroline and the kids until the end. The addition of the Native Americans and Davis was a good thing. I am usually leery of the addition of that many new characters, but they are key to the groups survival.
The relationship between Red and Nash was touching and creepy at the same time, think Stockholm Syndrome. I was happy to see that John got killed. He was a !!@#$%^. I feel really bad for Trace, that man gets the short end of the stick everytime.
I look forward to the 3rd book.
Once again I cannot say anything bad about the writing style or the structure.
