Recap of Volume 1
In Families First - Post-Apocalyptic Next-World Series, Volume 1, we are introduced to a cast of characters spanning multiple locations across the United States, with each group having diverse points of view and hardships to overcome.
We learn that North Korea dropped an EMP in the center of the United States, knocking out power to all states except Hawaii, as well as parts of Canada and Mexico. With no electricity, food or running water, and few working vehicles, the country is instantly reduced to the hardships of days long gone. It’s every family for themselves in this new and hostile world.
The story begins with a Chiropractor, husband, father and starting prepper, Lance, with his wife Joy and their young boys: twins Hudson and Jax (age 4), and Hendrix (age 3), from McKinney, Texas. They band with friends and neighbors as they prepare to leave their homes and head nearly 800 miles to Saddle Ranch, in the Rocky Mountains near Loveland, Colorado.
With help from new friends, including two McKinney police officers and a former military couple, they gather a formidable group of prayerful and like-minded men, women and children.
McKinney police officer Lonnie is always cool-headed and is a great leader of people.
Lonnie convinces his old friend Vlad to join the group and bring the entire inventory from his nearly looted gun store in Plano, Texas, in return for full membership in the group and the hopeful promise of long-term safety in the Colorado mountains.
The other McKinney police officer, Mike, has a soft spot for kids, females, and anyone close to him that needs his help. This behavior is closely pared with his propensity towards violent acts with seemingly little remorse. His conduct in Volume 2, and beyond, is sure to escalate and provide the groundwork for a wild ride.
With the good Lord always watching over them, the group sets out on the journey of a lifetime in Volume Two. The cast of Saddle Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, is diverse, with more than 100 people living in the community.
John is the leader of Saddle Ranch. With the help of Bill, Sharon, and their head of security, Mac, they need to secure their territory quickly. However, they realize that nothing stays locked down tight for long.
Close by is the Church of the West, just up the road in Green Valley, with Samuel as their leader.
Working together, but still maintaining their separate groups, they do their best to secure the four miles across the valley where they all live, surrounded by foothills and mountains.
In Raton Pass, New Mexico, halfway between McKinney, Texas, and Loveland, Colorado, live the Jenkins family; older son David with his mother Beatrice and father Dean, and David’s son, Mark.
