Prepper #2 Tom Abrahams

Excellent & Realistic Post-Apocalyptic Story

5 out of 5 stars

Prepper Book 2, like all of Abrahams’s books, is another compelling installment in the post-apocalyptic series. These series always seem to get better and better as they continue (and things fall apart more), and I can tell this one is just starting to build into something bigger. Just like the first book, Abrahams skillfully crafts a story that feels both compelling and frighteningly real.

Speaking of real, the neighborhood subplot, focusing on Warrant’s family and their neighbors, is perhaps the most realistic portrayal of post-apocalyptic community dynamics I’ve read in a long time. The way that the neighbors banded together to try and force Warrant’s hand felt like it went down exactly as I would expect it to. The way that Jack explained what was going on to his family and got their buy-in put the cherry on top. It’s always funny to me, in most other books, that would cause the Warrant family to run away in the night and seek refuge at their safe bunker or cottage, but they were prepped the way that a normal family would be – so staying is better than leaving.

I don’t like going too far into detail, (and I read these so close to each other that I can’t remember if it was in book one or two, but…) the scenes that play out at the storage unit are ones that I won’t soon forget. It was the perfect amount of action and “good feeling” at the end (as good as you can get given the circumstances).

Similarly, without going too deep into the detail, there was an entire sub-plot devoted to some characters who had to revert to their military training to save the day which felt both insane and also added to the action ramping up. I know that this is going to set off a new section moving forward and I can’t wait to see where it goes.

One final thought, Slate is a standout antagonist, reminiscent of a certain tech billionaire, which adds another layer of relatability and realism to the story

Overall, Prepper Book 2 is a gripping read that leaves you eagerly anticipating the next installment. Abrahams’s storytelling combined with Pierce’s narration makes for an engaging experience that fans of the genre will thoroughly enjoy.

Book Description:

Prepper #2 Tom Abrahams

A missing woman. A tech titan on the edge. The desperate hunt to find her. What happens when there is no light at the end of the tunnel?

Prepper #2 dives back into the darkness five days after a domestic terror attack killed the grid and sent millions scrambling for survival.

Jack Warrant is prepared but fears he needs to leave the safety of his home to add to his supplies. Tech billionaire Noel Slate kidnaps a VIP with political ties. A team of army veterans head out into the chaos in search of Slate before he exacts his revenge.

All roads begin to converge as the prolonged power outage forges a paramilitary state for some and threatens tenuous refuge for others.

Prepper is perfect for fans of T.L. Payne, Kyla Stone, Nicholas Sansbury Smith, Ryan Schow, and Franklin Horton.
