Sons of War (The Sons of War Series, Book 1)

We rated this book:


Nicholas Sansbury Smith’s Sons of War is a post-apocalyptic tale of America fractured by an economic collapse worse than the Great Depression and the resulting anarchy and unrest that threatens to spark a second Civil War. At the center of the plot is Marine Sergeant Ronaldo Salvatore who, along with his platoon, returns home from his tour of duty in Afghanistan. As he steps off the plane and is briefed on the current situation, he is shocked and realizes that while he left the war, the war never left him. Soon, he is thrust in the middle of the action trying to get to Los Angeles where his son has taken up arms in order to save his city and his country. Now, Salvatore must battle enemies both domestic and foreign, as an Italian crime boss has made the United States his new gang turf.

Smith delivers a great story that hooks you from the first sentence and is impossible to put down. There is plenty of action, and the characters are dynamic and multidimensional. The author who works in emergency management delivers an authentic plot with no BS. Post-apocalyptic books are somewhat of an irony these days given the fact that we are in the middle of the worst pandemic since the Spanish flu. Nevertheless, Sons of War is a great pulse-pounding read that will leave you breathless until the very last page.
