Brushfire Plague: Retribution Review: An SHTF Novel With Consequences

I missed out on reading the second Brushfire Plague Novel. The first one was a good read. As I talked about in that review. When asked if I wanted to review Brushfire Plague: Retribution (Amazon Link) I jumped at the opportunity. I even overcame my slow reading to get this out today. I’m sure authors and writers want to wring my neck at times.  But I did finish it and let’s see what I think about it. 

Brushfire Plague

So what’s all this about? Well, you can snatch up a copy of the First novel for .99 cents right now. Or you could also read my review on the first novel. Basically, A virus spreads and kills about 20% of the population. The novel shows the virus spread and the damage it causes. 

The main character Cooper Adams loose his wife in the first novel and have to survive in this news world with his son and best friend. Gangs run wild and there are constant fights for them vying for power. The government is in shambles. 

 The Consequences

Being a leader figure trying to spread the truth of the plague takes a toll on Cooper and his son. The constant violence and evil seen daily have an effect on Jake, Coopers son. You can see the emotional toll on the characters in Brushfire Plague: Retribution. As you can imagine surviving the horrors of a collapsed society will scar you emotionally. Cooper and his friends are not an exception. How long can you hold on to your humanity in the face of true evil?

The Good

Brushfire Plague: Retribution has some really good action scenes. R.P Ruggiero, the author, has really grown since the first book. I remember the gun fights were so unrealistic. I like to assume he took my advice and looked into how gun shots actually impact people. You can also see tactical movement by the characters in the book. You see realistic strategies on fighting armed threats in a grid down scenario. 

The Bad?

I wish I R.P Ruggiero, had included a recap in Brushfire Plague: Retribution. Since I didn’t read the second book there were events I didn’t know about. I had to just keep reading and collect clues as to what happened. Luckily the story was good enough on its own and filled you in on the need to know info. 

This is a good series to add to your prepper fiction collection. Especially since you can test the waters for less than a buck. If you are like me you can’t get enough of SHTF novels.
