My Review of Grip of Honor by Sam J Fires

Karen’s Review

I’d waited over four weeks for this last book of the series to come out and finally downloaded with it anticipation. I devoured and enjoyed every word. It continued the story of sisters Cass and Charlie, and the town of Meadowview and its citizens.

Cass had arrived with Isaac and being an a ex-marine, he now joined up with Jonas, the Police Chief’s son to help track down Howard, the cult leader, who had been causing havoc in the town.

I liked the character of Jonas even though we’d had mixed messages about him throughout the series. It was never totally clear whether he was a misunderstood good guy or not. In this last book, I liked him all the more. What I didn’t like much was that Charlie ended up with someone who wasn’t even a main character.

The climax to the story was exciting as they eventually located cult leader, Howard. What they discovered was truly chilling and it’s frightening how humanity can turn on itself like that.

What I wasn’t too keen on was what happened after the ending. I was satisfied when I finished the book. The bad guy got rid of, the town leaders reconciled, and it seemed a perfect ending.

Except, the author added an end note of unanswered questions, like Why did the power go out? I’d accepted that it had, and now my need to know along with the answer to other questions posed, was overwhelming. Next year, the author said, a new series is coming out amd will address that. But I need to know now!

Overall, it’s an excellent series and I highly recommend it to both post-apocalyptic, and novella lovers. I will give this book four stars as opposed to five, simply because of Jonas, and the spoiler, or teaser, depending on which way you look at it, at the end.

Description
