299 Days VIII: The War
For many people at Pierce Point and the rest of Washington State, the upcoming New Year is a time for hope, and belief that life is going to improve and the Collapse will end. For Grant Matson and the 17thIrregulars, the New Year means only one thing – war. The time has come, and they have received their orders from HQ. Grant must come clean with Lisa and tell her the truth about his work as he plans to abandon his family once again. While the Loyalists drunkenly and selfishly celebrate New Year’s Eve, the Patriots mount a surprise attack on Frederickson, making way for the 17th Irregulars to move toward Olympia. As the battle moves on, the men quickly realize the importance of everything they have been training for when they find themselves ambushed. Doing everything he can to suppress his own fear and lead the 17thIrregulars, Grant motivates them to persevere as they fight for liberty and restoring the country to the greatness it once was.
"As with the previous volumes, I found myself not waiting for the paperback and literally reading it on Nook in a few hours.
The war has finally arrived! I had anticipated this turn in the story after the buildup in the plot over the previous 2 volumes. First however, there are private wars that must be fought within at least 2 of the major characters. One must face his family with the truth which has been a struggle and source of anxiety for him. Another must deal with his own guilt of involvement in the corrupt and wicked establishment, after which he takes action in quite an amazing way (reminded me of Jehu crashing a party in the Old Testament LOL). Some characters that seem minor thus far, will step up and take significant roles in this volume. A very wonderful book indeed."
