Looking for a series recommendation
« on: December 14, 2018, 02:19:12 AM »
On of my favorite series has to be John Ringo's that starts "Under a Graveyard Sky" (I dont know if he has an actual series name). It is pretty much the opposite of what i read and really got me started on post apoc books.  Its gory and violent and seems to spend forever talking about weapon. Yet i still really enjoy the book go figure. I am searching for a series of a similar ilk and have yet to be successful.

I would really prefer a series that is longer.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Well, my apocalyptic saga of 17 books is not that gory or gun-porny, but it's in the ball park. Start with The Eden Plague and see if you like it. It's free in ebook form on all vendors.

Zombie post-apoc: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008TQ0T8A/

It's a 14-book series with a few additional standalones thrown into the mix.

Note that it's a successful series so it may fall outside your criteria.
"The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics.” – Thomas Sowell

"The State is an institution run by gangs of murderers, plunderers and thieves, surrounded by willing executioners, propagandists, sycophants, crooks, liars, clowns, charlatans, dupes and useful idiots—an institution that dirties and taints everything it touches.” - Hans Hoppe

"Virtue is more to be feared than vice, because its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience." - Adam Smith

Might want to re-read his "successful" line for comprehension. ;)

I didn't mean the series couldn't be successful. Sorry if I wrote that wrong. I just meant I had been unsuccessful in finding anything I liked as much as that series.

Nah. You wrote it perfectly. That was my goof. :)

Idontknowyet, you might like my post apoc series set in Australia, you can check the reviews.

https://www.amazon.com/Leo-Nix/e/B01N7O4MWZ

Book 1 is free at the moment.
Post-apocalypse or epic fantasy anyone?
Or perhaps tarot and astrology are more up your alley?
