Today we are featuring A Time to Endure by Kyle Pratt. It is the second book in the Strengthen What Remains series. We featured the author, Kyle Pratt and his first book, Through Many Fires in this article.
What is the book about?
A Time to Endure follows Major Caden Westmore whom we met in the first book, Through Many Fires, when six American cities are destroyed by nuclear terrorism. From the Amazon description: “Caden struggles to get home across a stricken, terrified nation. In the second book, A Time to Endure, the nation’s economy teeters on the verge of collapse. The dollar plunges, inflation runs rampant, and the next civil war threatens to decimate the wounded country. In the face of tyranny, panic, and growing hunger, Caden struggles to keep his family and town together. But how can he save his community when the nation is collapsing around it?”
A Time to Endure is just as fast paced as the first book. There is enough action to keep the pages turning, and it is a fast paced book.
The characters are flawed and deeply human. While I did not agree with some of the main character’s, Caden Westmore’s decisions, I understood where he was coming from. As the reader, I do not feel it is necessary to always agree with the character, only that the characters interest me enough to see them through.
A country in the midst of chaos along with the struggles of its citizens are plausibly described. Despite the backdrop of rampant destruction, there is still some semblance of infrastructure and law and order but in a lesser degree.
A Time to Endure is a good read and we look forward to the third book.
