View Full Version : Hope

I just finished Hope. I thought it was a neat little side story to the Going Home series. It sounds like the Chinese are about to take over the West Coast. I am anxious to see how that affects Morgan and the group since they are on the other side of the country. I hope I am right about it being a side story, however, it could have nothing to do with the main series. Although, I can't wait for book 8.

I need to get this story.

I'm always a little amused when stories have the angle of coming in via the left coast - there still are plenty of firearms owners and military units, besides people armed who should not be (by law, though a few of them could likely get their rights restored, but no one's telling them that.) The drug smugglers alone would be pissed to have that much disruption in business.

AA tends to remember people like wannabe-gangbangers, petty criminals, violent people, politicians, and other non-contributing members of society.

I'm gonna guess that eventually there may be more of a tie-in, but that's just a guess.

You never know what's going to happen.

Wow.....just wow.....I just finished this book and as a dad, I was literally fighting back tears at least three separate times, even with the ending and Neal fulfilling his destiny and promise....it was such a sad road to get there.

The book definitely left me with some anxiety. I guess more so than the Going home series and Requiem because at least in there were moments of happiness and hope of a future. No such warm fuzzies with this one even at the end with the armada coming into the bay. I was like, glad they got away....the rest of us we're all screwed. Very similar feeling to watching the movie The Road.

Great job AA and Mr Hopf. Now back to Charlie to see what her crew is up to in Democide.

Thanks J, that one was very dark. No happiness anywhere in it. I have an even darker idea but I don't think people would like it, though it could be closer to reality.

If you feel it is closer to what would really happen then I say go for it.

I agree with Boston Joe, go for it....just warn us first so I can get my mind right before reading (like watching a full weekend of comedies to hyper elevate my spirits before having them sunk, lol).

So, does anyone have an idea when book 8 will come out ?

10-07-2016, 07:25 PM
Well the Andy Griffith show it wasn't and you say you have an even darker one in mind. I'm getting way too old for this stuff, no where did I put Ma Deuce? Maybe a Striker as BOV.

The world is an ugly place beneath the veneer of society. Wars, social collapse, and the chaos inherent in an economic dead zone are three places it will come out.

so is this book HOPE an addition to the going home series?

Yes, it is, however , understand that it doesn't have any of the folks in Going Home. It's the same event/timeline as Going Home, but from a completely different view.

And the second one is darker than the first.

Arrg, I was thinking of Charlie, not Hope.

Yeah Apache and how about that ending at the end of Demicode!? You just knew it was going to end up that way, but hoping the entire time that there was going to be a twist and not end up as it did.....rough man, rough.

I also wonder if Charlie and her team will end up at Doc's since they're going the long way around in order to avoid DHS and the gang wars......I can't wait for book 3! AA definitely has me hooked.
