Strike Three
Author: Joy V. Smith
Publication: Wolfsinger Publications, June 26, 2014
173 pages
Some violence
Kindle, Paperback


Description from Goodreads:

Strike Three is a post-apocalyptic novel:

Because of the “hot virus,” the devastation of WWIII is more horrible than the worse case scenario, and missiles fired in retaliation gave new meaning to “Scorched Earth”.

No one ever imagined they would have to start from scratch–and bare dirt.


My thoughts:

What I didn’t like about this book:
¤The plot seemed choppy and without a natural flow.
¤  I would have liked to have known more about what went on in the “Prairie Schooner” while they were waiting to come out of the bunker.
¤ The author didn’t seem to care much about Lea, the main female character. There was little
development about her character.

What I liked about the book.
The author took a lot of time researching the prepper facts. I liked the way she encompassed the
prepping knowledge into a fiction book. I would read a sequel to see if the characters are developed more.

This book was given to my by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
