Kurzbeschreibung

Six months earlier in, The God Virus, the lights went out across America, throwing our country into turmoil and chaos, unleashing the demons of a million souls upon an unsuspecting humanity.
Dan Branch and his family, caught in the meat grinder of societal collapse, battled their way back home, only to find a new and greater threat waiting for them.

Once again, Dan and his family must fight for survival against impossible odds. But this time they are not alone. Their enemy is powerful and cruel, but now Dan is joined by an even greater source of good, evening the odds and giving them a fighting chance. As the Golden Horde marches toward them, leaving death, suffering and destruction in its path, The Shadow Militia takes charge !

HASH(0xa3128a68) von 5 Sternen Second installment of 'The God Virus' series is a winner 27. Januar 2013
Von Steve Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Skip Coryell isn't the type of author who pens conventional fiction. In his latest effort, The Shadow Militia, the grid is down, and modern-day conveniences are a thing of the past--available only for those who have prepared for the sudden collapse of society. The Shadow Militia's premise is two-edged; terrible for contemplation, but eerily plausible. In a culture content with allowing `someone else' to wrap them in a blanket of protection, the breakdown of civil order could hinge on the lack of everyday necessities--and the destructive greed of those with little regard for human life. Coryell's dystopian world embraces a scenario where the essentials are denied to the American populace, and with chilling results.

Dan Branch is caught in a fight for survival, along with his son, Jeremy, Dan's wife, Jackie, and their infant daughter, Donna. Each have a background of loss and desperation (depicted in the first book in the series, The God Virus), with Dan giving his family a tenuous grasp on their continued existence. It's a day to day battle to push through to the next challenge, and the threats are varied as they travel to Iroquois City.

Arriving at their destination, Dan finds another side to his Uncle Rodney, a man whose past has been purposely hidden in shadow. And with good reason; the elder Branch, now the commanding General of the Shadow Militia, has lived a lifetime waiting for the collapse of civilization, anticipating the brutal conflict that will result in an end-time civil war.

A principled man, Rodney has a respectable war machine of his own. But these weapons are held in check, and the reader is left to wonder just what the General is holding back. Rodney's foresight will secure the lives of an enclave of survivors, and ensure their protection against an ominous enemy called the `golden horde'.

At the outset, Coryell keeps us guessing about this nemesis. For newcomers of the saga, he shields his readers from a full description, drawing back the curtain slowly, allowing the audience to plumb the depths of their own fears to conjure up a suitably threatening visage. The author employs this tactic to great effect--before providing the unsavory details of the story's antagonists.

The Shadow Militia is the second in a three book arc (The Saracen Tide is next), and the writing in this installment is among Skip's best. Coryell hits his mark when framing the narrative in richly descriptive paragraphs. Occasionally, he reveals his characteristically dry wit (a Prius is destroyed during the course of one battle, reduced to `fuel-efficient pieces'). And the author describes military tactics and strategies as easily as General Branch slips into a fresh set of camouflaged fatigues. A strong advocate of 2nd Amendment rights, Skip is a Certified NRA Pistol Instructor and Range Safety Officer.

While Hollywood often depicts the post-apocalyptic world in settings like Los Angeles, New York, or a host of other major cities, The Shadow Militia is set in a locale many readers can easily relate to--northern middle America. Coryell's second book in The God Virus is the story of pharmacists and factory workers, nurses and retirees--all common folk, coming to terms with the unimaginable. At times the narrative will set your teeth on edge, but like any good piece of fiction, its message will stay with you long after you've read the last page.

HASH(0xa3122e40) von 5 Sternen Wow, talk about action! 16. April 2013
Von Will Riley Hinton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Skip Coryell just keeps getting better and better! The guy mixes his knowledge of military tactics and protocol with the common sense values of REAL American families to give us a white knuckle gripping, breath holding, page turning novel set in the heart of our great country that uses the common folk such as made this a free country to start with.
I would say to America, read this and buckle up for a possible ride of this type if things continue as they are.
Skip paints a picture of heroes carved out of the souls of the kind of men and women who settled this great nation at the beginning. Quite simply put, his best work yet!

HASH(0xa312209c) von 5 Sternen A thing of beauty 31. Januar 2013
Von J. Keith Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The second installment of the Thousand Year Night trilogy, "The Shadow Militia" notches up the action. The first installment, "The God Virus" turned out the lights all over the fruited plain when terrorists take out the American infrastructure in a most unconventional way, through a computer virus. That virus took out the power grid and threw the United States into darkness and anarchy. Dan Branch transformed from a man who is behind the eight ball to a survivor. After making his way from Wisconsin to his childhood home in Michigan, Dan discovers that there was a lot he didn't know about his Uncle Rodney, the man who had raised him after his parents' deaths. Rodney Branch, as it turns out, is the commanding general of the secret Shadow Militia.

As "The Shadow Militia" opens, the Branches and their neighbors find themselves within days of being invaded by a horde of opportunistic gang members who have formed their own army to strip the countryside clean of everything in their path. Watching the Shadow Militia at work is a thing of beauty. The small unit tactics will both thrill and amaze while tempered by the loss and heartache that accompany any war. There is a lot to enjoy about this book that will keep you reading. "The Shadow Militia" is a stark illustration of the reason the founding fathers created the Militia Act.

HASH(0xa3286024) von 5 Sternen Skip's Best Book Ever! 4. Februar 2013
Von Bob Yoho - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I believe The Shadow Militia is without question Skip Coryell's greatest book ever!

Faced with a soon-approaching threat to their city, Gen. Rodney Branch must try to transform a ragtag band of civilians into an elite fighting force. Along the way, we discover the crazy uncle is really a combination of Robert E. Lee, George Patton, and the A-Team's Hannibal Smith

This book grabs you and doesn't let you go. I can't wait for the final book of the series!
