Prepper Fiction Review – Resurrecting Home by A. American


Resurrecting Home, the fifth book in The Survivalist Series, drops us back into the Morgan Carter universe with a bang. Fighting to survive in a collapsing civilization, a massive wildfire threatens the small community they’ve managed to build in their old neighborhood. From the book description:

Against all odds, Morgan Carter and his family have endured despite the deteriorating conditions surrounding them. Armed with survivalist tactics, Morgan’s crew, alongside their  new friends from the recently-liberated DHS camp, have worked together to build a sustainable communuity. But not all situations can be prepared for. When a massive wildfire threatens their very existence, they must decide: fight or flight?

If you’ve read the first four books in the series, then I think you likely know the answer to that question…

I’ll admit, I was initially skeptical about this book; the third and fourth books took the story line to the extreme and I couldn’t think of a way the author could bring the characters back into a semi-believable situation. Well, he didn’t. In my opinion, the plot of the book is not only feasible, but likely. With the massive socialized infrastructure present in our society, wildfires are frequently contained prior to getting near residential areas, and in the event that they aren’t fire fighters work to keep your home from burning to the ground. Unfortunately for Morgan and his family, there are no more fire fighters so they have to choose to fight the fire themselves – with the help of Sarge and his crew of merry men, of course – or flee.

I’m not sure what I would do in that situation, and that’s one of the main reasons I like these books: they make you think about odd situations, and give solid information on what could be done should you find yourself in one. Additionally, I was very glad that the author has brought back the writing style that got me hooked on the series in the first place. I can’t quite place it, but something was “off” in the third and fourth installments. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed them, it kept nagging at me while I read them.

Overall, this is a good installment on what is still my favorite prepper fiction book series. I’d highly recommend picking up a copy.
