    (Audiobook review.) Technically this is post-apocalyptic but other than lawless communities versus a gang of outlaws, but there's zero post-apocalyptic nostalgia or ingenuity that I most like about the genre. Mostly there's some man-to-woman or man-to-child drama and a lot of fight action. Clearly the author knows his firearms and their detailed usage. Not so much biological science or three-dimensional female characters. The female president must be the president of The Feeble States of Apathetica rather than our former military superpower because lost daughter or not, she is embarrassingly lame. You simply do not get to that level without having more strength of character than this. Some of the descriptions of the virus, Superpox-99, seemed amateurish and made me cringe. Was it really named 99 because of its 99% mortality because that's not how they are named. Plus, the book states 1 in 30 survive which is closer to 97%. But that's just my microbio/physician hackles being raised.The story is third in a series but I had no problem feeling like it was its own story in the beginning, maybe because the characters aren't exactly complex. Lawman with a giant dog and good-natured giant convict with little girl to protect. It doesn't get much more complex, nor does the journey get closure by the end of the novel, not that it really went anywhere anyways. As for the audiobook narrator, he's a little overdramatic and does not do female voices well at all, but I guess you get used to it.I won't be revisiting the other books of the series.

    Consistent high quality storyThis third book is at the same level as the first two. Simple writing backed up by a great story. Truly, this series is the finest of the dystopian story books available. I can't stop reading them!

    I first became a fan of Dr. Arthur T Bradley's writing by way of his excellent non-fiction (namely his Preppers' Instruction Manual and the Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family, both of which are available here on Amazon). When I first heard of The Survivalist series of novels I was both curious and excited about exploring Dr. Bradley's fiction-writing. I was hooked early on by his approachable, engaging writing style, his believable and likeable characters, and the straightforward, action-packed plots; by the time I finished "Frontier Justice," the first novel in the series, I was craving the continuation of the story.This, the third and most recent iteration of The Survivalist, features all of the elements that made the first two books great but also improves upon them. It is apparent almost immediately that Dr. Bradley has found both his stride and his comfort zone as a fiction writer (which, as any writer will tell you, is an almost completely different arena than technical/academic/informative non-fiction). The returning characters remain true to form but, to my utter enjoyment, the dynamic duo of Tanner Raines and Samantha Glass has really smoothed out. My biggest gripe about the earlier novels was the clunky dialogue between those two characters. Now, here in The Survivalist (Judgment Day), the pair proves to be the most entertaining set of characters arguably in all of the novels and, perhaps, the most believable.Though the post-apocalyptic milieu remains the same, the ever-present dangers that the main characters face have grown more threatening and, in a few cases, darker and far more heinous. Deputy Marshal Mason Raines' unending quest for justice continues to build in scope as he uncovers new information about the increasing threat posed by villains either hinted at or introduced in the previous novels. The almost infallibility/invincibility of both Mason and his father Tanner take serious hits in Judgment Day and often leave the reader breathless or clutching to the next page, anxiously awaiting the result of the numerous action-packed sequences.Regarding the overarching plot, I find many of the elements reminiscent of the amazing show "Jericho" that aired in televised format a few years ago and which persists in printed graphic novel form today. What separates Dr. Bradley's Survivalist series though is the interspersion of valuable, applicable real-life prepping knowledge. The first novel seemed to have more of this than its sequel but this, the third novel, seems to have the most though the bulk of it is well-hidden--easily glossed over by the casual reader. Many "preppers'" or "survivalists'" novels border on the ridiculous in their over-the-top exploration of TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) but Dr. Bradley's series reads as simply a collection of post-apocalyptically placed thriller/adventures. The reader is not brow-beaten with knowledge but, for those who would wish to seek it out, it is undeniably present in the pages.Though I rarely discuss the specifics of plot and characters, I would be remiss not to point out that Dr. Bradley has mastered the art of the unexpected. For one, a climax that I anticipated being the crux of the novel came and went within almost the first third of the novel; a few that left my jaw dropped completely surprised me in the latter two-thirds. The quantity of action seems to have increased and Dr. Bradley's penchant for capturing both the violence and the emotion of these sequences has clearly improved over his previous already-adequate efforts; now it feels like I'm reading the work of a well-versed, highly-talented fiction writer.With a five-star rating, this is easily my favorite of the three excellent novels that comprise Dr. Bradley's Survivalist arc and it comes with both my highest recommendation and a caveat. If you're brand new to the series and Dr. Bradley's writing, seek out "Frontier Justice" (the first, introductory novel of The Survivalist series) as well as his non-fiction work so that you can get a greater sense of his motivations for writing as well as his background qualifications. It won't be long before you find your way here to the third piece of the plot puzzle and, I can all but guarantee you, it will lead you forward towards the fourth novel and beyond. An absolute can't-miss novel! And for those of you looking for a slightly different experience be sure to look out for Dr. Bradley's novels in audiobook form both on Amazon and through Audible's website.

    "Fear of judgment is rarely enough to keep evil at bay..."This is an excellent series by author Bradley based on TEOTWAWKI scenarios. I've read the first two books in the series - "Frontier Justice (The Survivalist Book 1)" and "Anarchy Rising (The Survivalist Book 2)." I enjoyed them both, rated them 5 stars, and the series just keeps getting better.We are really getting to know Deputy U.S. Marshal Mason Raines and his huge dog Bowie. The stories are pretty well split 50/50, half telling Mason's story and the other half chronicling the story of Tanner Raines (Mason's father) and his young charge, Samantha, the daughter of the POTUS.Both men - and Samantha too, for that matter - battled their way through this third book in the series. Cool fight scenes abound along with basic survival tips. (Oh, and not to mention killer Amish "zombies.") And, again, great cover art and excellent illustrations that are actually tied into the story, making me think the illustrator actually read the book.I'm now on my way to start "Madness Rules (The Survivalist Book 4)." So far, in the series, the pace has been fast, character development a real plus and the storyline all too believable. I don't expect that to change in this next book.

    Mason arrives at the Law Enforcement Center, but finds it devastated by a neuro-toxin bio weapon. The U.S. Marshal force is all but wiped out. Is Mason the last of his kind? Who would commit such an attack and just as importantly, why? With the world in the midst of a pandemic, why attack the U.S. Marshal's home base? The U.S. Government are the only people with access to such toxins. Is our own government guilty of carrying out the attack? Mason will find out who and why. In his search, Mason finds out just how desperate and treacherous the government can be. Mason exacts his revenge on those responsible.Tanner meanwhile has made his way to his home with his charge safely in tow. Samantha has one more side trip in mind for Tanner before returning home to her mother. She made a commitment to a dying soldier to bring his last sentiments to his family, which is about 100 miles out of their way. Tanner again agrees to oblige his charge on another detour. Seems Tanner is in no hurry to complete his journey and be rid of his charge. Odd to say the least, but good for the story line.

    Another 2 1/2 - 3 star entry (the third) in the Survivalist series.This book remains readable, but the plot line is becoming more ludicrous as the characters choose more ludicrous actions, zombies make an appearance, and the anti-government paranoia plot line goes drives the series further into the fringes of absurdity. I thought this was the 3rd and final book in the series, but i was wrong as there's another one on the way.As mentioned in my review of the first book in the series, this is average pulp fiction in the genre. If you are looking for quality - look elsewhere (Try "One Second After" or "The Dog Stars")

    Love this series!Reading the Survivalist series was pure pleasure for me. I love the relationships and the banter between them! Also there were some survivalist ideas that I want to employ. It prepares your mind and heart for the shocking realities the end times may bring. When I finished, I was so sad to have no new books available. So, I think just for fun, I will read them all again. (Like my mother, I can now forget books and movies so I can experience them again for the "first " time!)

    Multipal story lines and many twists and turns. While I am enjoying the books, I wish they were not so short. Through the countless "encounters/adventures" that the primary characters become involved with, their characters deepen. I find myself being more involved with the father than the son, which is the reverse of how I initially felt. I continue to like the series and have bought through book 6.

    Survivalist 3 I am stunned with the capacity of humanity to be so vile and cruel. The graphic nature leaves little to the imagination for the sad and sorry state of affairs should the infrastructure of our country were to collapse. It saddens me to think that humanity would become as Mr. Bradley describes it. The loss of life rather intentional or unintentional is staggering.
