Fire From the Sky: Book 4: Firestorm

Bandits. Forest fires. Cannibals. Material shortages. Family problems. Why had Clayton Sanders expected these issues and others like them to be absent from life at the end of the modern world? It had sounded good anyway. His plan had been simple; dig in, hunker down, and wait it out. He knew that society would go through a ‘reset’ period before things settled down. He knew people would suffer during that time, but also knew he couldn’t stop it. He couldn’t help the world around him but he could try and keep his family and closest friends safe. Maintain at least a semblance of normalcy for them.
And then his family had gotten involved.
First it was his parents insisting that they show everyone the Sanders had working vehicles and extra food by taking supplies to the church in Jordan to ‘donate’. This had resulted in a fight for that same vehicle and a near battle just to get away.
Then his niece had gone charging into Peabody to ‘rescue’ her friend, only to be caught herself and necessitate a rescue mission for her that he still partially regretted as it had cost the life of his best friend “Big Bear” John Barnes. Then Leon, Clay’s irascible grandfather decided they needed to build a town of sorts and gather good people with skills they needed to occupy it. Now, the people Leon brought are beginning to want to do things differently, his parents have yet to learn their lesson about letting other people know that the Sanders were better prepared than average for the disaster that had beset the Earth, and on top of everything else who shows up? Tax collectors.
Maybe things haven’t changed so much after all. Now he has to defend his family farm from an old enemy of his father and prevent him and his army of miscreants from taking the very things Clay and the others need to survive. All in a day’s work here at the end of the modern world, right? With the dig in and hunker down plan now truly shot to hell, Clay and his friends are going to have to face some rough odds in defending their family and home. Fortunately, this isn’t the first time they’ve faced such a thing. Their enemies don’t have a clue what kind of Firestorm they’re about to ignite.

A Special Ops Soldier Returns Home to Prepare for the End of the World

Clayton Sanders left home the minute he had his high school diploma in hand. He waited that long only because the Army wouldn’t accept him without one. Now, ten years later, he’s home. Home with no warning, no advance notice, no anything after being gone ten years with almost no contact with his family. Home carrying a secret that is burning him up from the inside. A secret that has pushed him to the brink, forcing him to become a criminal in order to be where his family needs him to be, even though they don’t realize it yet. Because Clayton knows something they don’t. Something that hasn’t happened, but will. Something that will burn everything it touches. And change the face of the world forever.

New Threats Continue to Emerge….

Friendly fire. Two words no soldier ever wants to hear. Having ended the threat of his father’s oldest enemy and the group he controlled, Clayton Sanders believes he can finally put his feet up a bit and relax. Figuratively of course, since there is no relaxing on a farm and ranch. But some peace and quiet will be greatly appreciated and welcome. Too bad he won’t get it.

Book One: The Sanders Saga

Clayton Sanders left home the minute he had his high school diploma in hand. He waited that long only because the Army wouldn’t accept him without one. Now, ten years later, he’s home. Home with no warning, no advance notice, no anything after being gone ten years with almost no contact with his family. Home carrying a secret that is burning him up from the inside. A secret that has pushed him to the brink, forcing him to become a criminal in order to be where his family needs him to be, even though they don’t realize it yet. Because Clayton knows something they don’t. Something that hasn’t happened, but will. Something that will burn everything it touches. And change the face of the world forever.

Book Two: Brotherhood of Fire

By the most ludicrous of means, Special Ops Soldier Clayton Sanders had a warning that something was going to happen to the world. Clay prepared for the worst, but just because you’re well prepared doesn’t mean everything is going to be okay. Clay has faced some of the worst humanity has to offer in all parts of the world, but now he is faced with something much worse than terrorists. His family. Having returned home at great cost to himself, Clay has prepared his family as best he could in secret, but now that the crap has actually hit the fan, things aren’t going as he had hoped. Having planned for his family to shelter in place at their farm and ride out the worst of the disaster, Clay and his friends must adapt quickly and make a new plan on the fly. Faced with armed gangs and a leader who shocks them all, how will things play out for Clay and the others, especially when his own family members can’t seem to remember the plan and continuously make things hard on him?

Book Three: Trial by Fire

The world has stopped turning. Well, most things in the world have stopped turning, anyway. Clay Sanders, his friends and his family thought they were prepared for the immense Coronal Mass Ejection that literally turned off the lights in most of the world, turning First World nations into pre-industrial nations in a matter of hours. No more phones, television, motor vehicles, radios, or GPS. The United States has gone from following the most popular celebrities on social media and worrying about the latest fashions to simply trying to survive. The winter has been relatively quiet for the Sanders clan and their new neighbors, and they have used that time to firm up their plans and their position. They are confident now that they are on the right track. But there are much bigger problems on the horizon that will make their trials look immaterial in comparison. Things are about to heat up around the Sanders ranch, and winter hasn’t even officially ended yet!

Book Five: Home Fires

“No plan survives contact with the enemy.” An age old idiom that Clay Sanders knows very well. In this case however, it’s surviving contact with the people who are supposed to be on his side. Family that can’t accept the reality of their new situation, soldiers who follow orders selectively, and ‘friends’ who essentially sell you down the river. No one ever said the end of the modern world would be boring or uneventful. The ‘Citizen’s committee’ is still out there somewhere, there are apparent rogue nomadic elements of some kind that are raiding anyplace that still has food or resources, and because of certain betrayals they now have to step up training of every individual on the farm from the age of sixteen on up just to be able to protect themselves. Clay just might have had enough of trying to protect a farm full of people that apparently don’t want to be protected, even if a lot of them are his own family. And then, there’s that radio call. . . .

Book Six: Friendly Fire

Friendly fire. Two words no soldier ever wants to hear. Having ended the threat of his father’s oldest enemy and the group he controlled and with the remainder of his old team on their way, Clay starts to think he might be able to breathe easier and finally put his feet up a bit and relax. Some peace and quiet will be greatly appreciated and welcome. Too bad he won’t get it. He has heard no news from outside their immediate area, forcing him to rethink his initial plans for isolation of the farm from others. But his friends find trouble much closer to home as they make their journey to join Clay and the rest at the ranch, uncovering a threat that Clay hadn’t known existed. Their arrival also awakens old prejudices and attitudes that will lead to a fracture among the ranch residents, and that fracture will in turn bring vicious enmity among people who had been friends only days before.

Book Seven: Hostile Fire

Clay Sanders never seems to run out of problems. His grandfather and mentor is slowly succumbing to old age, his health failing. His mother has more or less stopped speaking to him. The nearby town that was his boyhood stomping ground is struggling to get back on her feet with the farm’s assistance, but the town also has elements that have a strong dislike for Clay and don’t mind making it known, even to the point of outright lies. It seems as if someone is always thinking they are somehow entitled to ‘their fair share’ of everything the Sanders have worked for over a half-dozen generations. No matter how much they help, it’s never enough. Now there’s a destructive survivalist group that has terrorized rural areas to the south and is now looking toward Clay’s neighborhood as their next conquest. Their motto is simple; if they can take it, they deserve it. Yes sir, problems are one thing that Clayton Sanders never seems to run out of. Even at the end of the world as we know it.

Book Eight: Hell Fire

Doom. Devastation. Death. Destruction. It seems that no matter what direction he looks, Clay Sanders can see little else. He has tried to maintain at least a small oasis of safety for the people closest to him, but that bubble is constantly threatened by those who want it for themselves, or else want to deny it to Clay and his family and friends, even though it belongs to them. The farm has already suffered, but what they have seen thus far has been nothing but a warm up. Things are about to reach a new level and there is absolutely nothing Clay or his friends can do to stop it, or even slow it down. Clay knows that, as do the other former soldiers. The others are about to learn it the hard way. Friends will betray, family will suffer, brothers will bleed and die. Hard work and sacrifice will be lost to hard feelings, envy and strife. Even at the end of the world as we know it there are some who seem to think the world revolves around them and no one else.
