All too often prepper fiction ends all rosy, with the hero saving the day.
Now, there are occasions for Walter Mitty fantasies, but Defiance is not for those occasions.
This novel is about a soviet sneak attack based upon some unknown biological or chemical agent that incapacitates the government in a single surprise attack. – The book does not get in detail as is is just a plot device to explain how communists are now running our country (it could have been an election instead).
The hero has been locked up in a reeducation camp – he is released and then gets a band of patriots together to attack the camp and release the prisoners.
I don’t want to ruin the story for you, but it does not have the typical rosy ending – If your a prepper that needs a little realism in your stories then this may just be the book for you.
I enjoyed it, it was well written, and is pretty plausible. It gave me some needed thinking points.
As I said earlier in the post, Defiance is not a feel good book, but when individuals try to take up arms against superpowers as individuals it will never end well for the lone wolf.
Not saying one man can’t make a difference, but that one man had better be prepared to be gutted by a Hind helicopter gunship.
