This is what I said after reading book three of this series...
"It's rare that I read a series and have each succeeding book get better than the previous one. This series puts that tradition in the rear view mirror. I have enjoyed each book more than the previous. Book Three in the series is gritty, down to earth, brutal at times and the characters are strong and believable."
Sorry to repeat myself, but... Book 4 was even better than the previous three, and the Prequel.
If you need to read something you really don't want to put down, grab the Prequel "The Last Light of Days" and go on from there.
Sorry Ryan for taking so long to get around to my review, but hey, nothing sticks in ones head more than your books and the way you wrote Enclave has me in need of therapy... I will not be giving away any spoilers in my reviews so dont worry. But I do Recommend to anyone reading this to ensure you have a Valium at hand. The opening scene gripped me and page after page, I got taken through twists and turns that I thought I saw coming only to get blindsided... I can see why some parts made Ryan walk away to take a break - that's saying something. Got a new hobby use for Broomsticks..? not to mention the beheading scene which just made me woozy and I have a strong stomach for most things. This entire series deserves to be made into a Feature Length Movie or even better, a proper Mini Series, as I reckon it would make a killing on the screen, the action just keeps going, the characters are well written and no, not everyone you Love will survive which is why this series is so realistic.
Another engrossing page turner written by Ryan Schow. Likeable and loveable as are many of his characters, Schow is equally adept at painting characters in the evil personae needed to complete his story lines. Well researched and very believable locales, action scenes and characters inhabit his books. Love the characters or hate them, I guarantee you will always enjoy his books and eagerly await the next in the series. I strongly recommend you begin with the first book of the series, "Dark Days of the After."
It's so easy to become completely immersed in the story and to become a character on the sideline who IS part of the story, that next thing you know, the book is over! I love these characters! Rich! Indepth! I hate for the Dark Days to end, but I can't wait for the final book! I highly recommend this book!
Ryan Schow wrote another fantastic tale of human determination, grit and fight for survival against overwhelming odds in the face of tyranny and truly evil invaders and occupiers!!! I have read every novel Ryan has crafted and, like them all, I couldn’t put down Dark Days of the Enclave once I began reading! Great characters, subplots and action will keep you up late into the night!
Ryan Schow's books are definitely not for the faint of heart. If you want to understand how quickly our society could devolve during an apocalyptic event, read his books. All of them are outstanding... Characters are fully developed and very relatable. Can't wait for the next one!
The war just continues to grow and expand and so does the determination of our heros. I love that revolutionary fighting spirit. There's nothing like defending your own homeland to motivate you. Love this series!
