Without giving away too much, one portion of the book deals with fighting the Mexican cartels trying to seize power in south Texas, and another part covers some of the characters in Tennessee who are fighting with marauders.
As far as the story lines, I was not keen on the overpowered cartel. While I agree that cartels would cause a lot of trouble in a grid down disaster, I imagine they would not be as profitable or have the economic ability to fund a war if the economy collapsed and drug sales went down. Another aspect of the story I was wondering about was what the federal government was doing and why the states pulled away. However, there was enough action in the story to keep me turning the pages.
Besides the action in the book, I liked the continuing focus on the small group of characters. I hope to see the characters continue to develop. The author also has an extensive knowledge of firearms which provides some good detail. I look forward to the next installment of The Homefront series.
