Overview

The Survivalist (Frontier Justice) is the first in a brand new post-apocalypse adventure series by Dr. Arthur Bradley and features 15 full-page illustrations.

Book 1: The Survivalist (Frontier Justice)
Book 2: The Survivalist (Anarchy Rising)
Book 3: The Survivalist (Judgment Day)
Book 4: The Survivalist (Madness Looms) - coming in July 2014

The Superpox-99 virus has wiped out nearly the entire human race. Governments have collapsed. Cities have become graveyards filled with unspeakable horror. People have resorted to scavenging from the dead, or taking from the living. The entire industrialized world has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, decaying bodies, and feral animals.

To stay alive, U.S. Deputy Marshal Mason Raines must forage for food, water, and gasoline while outgunning those who seek to take advantage of the apocalyptic anarchy. Together with his giant Irish wolfhound, Bowie, he aligns with survivors of the town of Boone in a life and death struggle against a gang of violent criminals. With each deadly encounter, Mason is forced to accept his place as one of the nation's few remaining lawmen. In a world now populated by escaped convicts, paranoid mutants, and government hit squads, his only hope to save the townspeople is to enforce his own brand of frontier justice.

Halfway across the country, a killer is released from prison. With hopes set on a fresh start, he rescues a young girl desperate to get home. As they travel across the wasteland that once was the United States, they must call upon every bit of strength and courage to survive not only the horrors of the new world but also a violent government agenda.

    Good read but...

    Liked the premise, story read well, will probably buy the sequel, just wish I didn't feel a little shorted by the brevity, that a the minimum amount of wordage was published to call it a book.

    I've read Dr. Bradley's non-fiction prepper books and have enjoy

    I've read Dr. Bradley's non-fiction prepper books and have enjoyed all of them. They are well-written and chock full of useful information. When I found out he'd written a fiction book, I was excited and interested in reading it; however, I have to admit, probably because many of the other TEOTWAWKI works of fiction I've read are amateurishly written, I was a bit skeptical that it would be a really good read. I was so wrong! This book was thoroughly enjoyable and a quick read because it was hard to put down. His plot and character development are terrific, and the main character is likable and, well, just plain cool. More importantly, the characters seem real and not one-dimensional caricatures.

    The author peppered the story with some practical survival tips and terrific illustrations. (The drawings are well done, however, the author does such a remarkable job of describing the scene, they're a bit superfluous.)

    I didn't realize this was a serial novel, but now I'm eager to read the sequel. I highly recommend this novel if you're looking for an action-packed, easy, and enjoyable read.

    Arthur creates another great book.  My first purchase from this author was the Practical Prepardness Handbook for your family.  It had great tips in it to prepare for and to protect your family during any type of disaster.  When I discovered he wrote a novel, I knew I had to read it.  It is well written, the story flows nicely, and there are tips for survival as well, interwoven into the story.  Nicely done.  Thank you.

    This book is an excellent story set in a very realistic and plausible scenario. I did not know what to really expect but I was not disappointed! The main character Mason Raines is a person whom I think most people could relate to and indentify with. The book does a good job at holding your interest and a few tense moments when you have to keep reading to find out what happens. I enjoyed the book very much and would reccomend it to anyone. I was surprised to see some pictures and they matched perfectly what I had in mind to match the text. I found myself thinking what would I do in the situations in the book. The book is esay to read and progrsses well. I can't help but wonder which direction Mason takes in the end of the book. Does Samantha find her mother with Mason's father's help? Does Mason ever meet up with his father? And what of Ava? The book begs for a sequel! Get writing Arthur!

    I happen to own and enjoy two other Arthur T. Bradley books, Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family, and
    Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms.
    I’m sure it isn’t easy for writers to successfully transition, but I was quite impressed with his first foray into fiction. While he did manage to sneak a few learning opportunities in this first of (hopefully several more in) the series, it's main purpose is not meant to be educational, just enjoyable.
    There were two separate story lines and, while I am definitely more invested in the Tanner arc, both of them were written well and left me wanting to continue. The characters were engaging; the action flowed at a good pace, and ohmygoodness I want that dog!
    I am honored to recommend this book and can’t wait to get started on “Anarchy Rising”.

    Just finished this book and am already hungry for Anarchy Rising

    Just finished this book and am already hungry for Anarchy Rising. It was very well written, easy to read, and the illustrations pull the reader into the author's imagination of each scene. The plot was clear and was resolved by the end of the book. The only area that left me a bit confused was the timeline of events - either the characters never sleep, or it all took place in a matter of 72 hours.

    Practical prepping tips were intentionally dropped throughout the book like a trail of breadcrumbs. While the book's scenario isn't one I'm preparing for, the wisdom in having your family prepared should not be overlooked.

    Dr. Bradley did a wonderful job on what I think is the first penning of a fictional story. I anxiously look forward to reading the next two books in the series.

    Always enjoying fiction books that revolve around the ending of

    Always enjoying fiction books that revolve around the ending of society and the world, I was very eager to read this book. Being a fan of Dr. Bradley’s “Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family” I was excited when I found out that he was also writing fiction. A lot of other author’s make the mistake of having a plot for shock value alone, but in Frontier Justice the underlining theme throughout the book is survival. The plot held up throughout the book showing you several reasons why anyone should be prepared for a number of reasons. Another theme that I have noticed throughout the book is the need to help others. A deadly virus is spread in one man’s skewed view to help the earth, resulting in a U.S. Deputy Marshal, a prisoner, a priest, government officials and several strangers extending their hands in moments that they could have easily been better off helping themselves. But make no mistake, the theme of survival runs deep throughout this book because for every descent person, there are a lot more who have their arms out, relying on the weak in these desperate moments. It also gives a clear view of how the government having your best interest in mind can be dangerous for you or your family, and why you should prepare for disasters instead of relying on them. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to the next in the series.

    Believable scenario, and believable characters is what really makes this book work. As you read the story it really makes you wonder "what if"?? At the end of the book it leaves you wanting more...thus the set up for the series. Well crafted and an easy read. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Highly recommended for fans of the end of the world as we know it scenarios.

    If you are a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, this is a must read. Dr. Bradley combines his knowledge of survival with a page-turning, exciting storyline. Instead of just describing the characters in a situation, Dr. Bradley weaves in tips on what the reader could/should do in an apocalyptic world (such as how to siphon gas). But it does not read like a how-to manual. Instead, it is a book you don't want to put down. The action is non-stop. The characters are immensely relatable -- you feel yourself cheering for them at every turn. To tell you how much I enjoyed it, after reading half-way through and wanting to fall asleep, I promised myself only one more chapter. Next thing I knew it was 3am and I finished the book. I can't wait to read the sequel!

    I was first introduced to Dr. Bradley's writing with a non fiction survival book I thought was excellent. I was just as pleased with his fiction writing. The book was interesting and an easy read as I got caught up in the story quickly. I liked how he interjected tidbits throughout the book of real solutions to survival problems the characters were facing. I would tell my husband, "we need to make sure we have this," or "show me how I would do this". The characters were well done and I am excited to read the next installment in the series. This would be an excellent book for those hard to shop for people as it is both entertaining and educational. Highly recommend!

    I just finished reading Frontier Justice, #! in The Survivalist

    I just finished reading Frontier Justice, #! in The Survivalist series, and it was excellent. A real page-turner, wanting to know what came next. The book is very, very well written and formatted, so that it is quite easy to read, easy to understand. As I got close to the end, I 'knew' there would be more and looking forward to reading the next in the series.

    I like this type of presentation, which gives lots of information to the reader, and tips of surviving what might happen. Always best to be prepared. The characters took on their own personalities quickly, and definitely looking forward to the direction in which they will go. I think this would also make an excellent movie with the right company making the movie.

    I strongly recommend this book, both for entertainment,and also because its information is invaluable.

    Though I¿ve read a few of Dr. Bradley¿s non-fiction works and fo

    Though I’ve read a few of Dr. Bradley’s non-fiction works and found them to be concise, informative, and generally very well-written, the only comparison that I will draw between these and his fiction is this: both bear the hallmarks of a passionate, knowledgeable man eager to share his passion and wisdom and ultimately capable of doing both. Though The Survivalist: Frontier Justice is a work of fiction, some of Dr. Bradley’s practical prepping advice sneaks its way in but it does so in a completely unobtrusive fashion. If one were not looking for or attuned to such topics then it would be possible that one would gloss right over the informative aspects of the book.

    As a first novel, The Survivalist: Frontier Justice is not without its faults. Many of the metaphors and similes tend to ruin the flow of the writing with some seeming completely out of place. A few run far too long and wind up being distracting, especially when the pace of the plot has quickened. There is also an occasional surfeit of detail that drags the pace down a bit, particularly when describing certain specific items (like firearms/mechanical devices) or conditions (like decomposition).

    Additionally, the dialogue between two particular characters was very difficult to enjoy. It felt forced and, at times, unbelievable in the sense that most folks simply don’t speak the way that these two characters do. The short, brisk replies are visibly evident on the page but the truly troubling aspect—or at least the part I had the most difficult time believing—were the responses of the younger character. Eleven year olds simply do not speak or think the way that this particular character does and I found myself reading a little more quickly through these sections so that I could return to the excellent, engrossing story.

    Dr. Bradley holds a powerful grip on the single most important ability an author can have: the capability of crafting a gripping, engaging story. The characters are all extremely likeable and believable, the plot itself is wholly within the realm of possibility, and the pace is nearly perfect. He segues seamlessly between story archs, serving to build the ever-mounting tension that exists between these plots as the overarching tale presses forward.

    Some have complained that either the book is too short or that there were loose threads that they felt should have been tied up by the end. On the contrary, I felt that it was perfect in length and the plot germs that were planted in this first book of The Survivalist series will undoubtedly be explored in greater detail and ultimately brought to fruition in later works. I also enjoyed the stellar illustrations that pepper the pages and feel like they serve to enhance the reader’s overall experience.

    Ultimately, Dr. Bradley writes with an easily approachable, engaging style and has crafted both an excellent cadre of characters and a tension-laden, nail-biting environment for them to interact in. Channeling some of the best works of the respective genres The Survivalist: Frontier Justice represents, it coalesces into one part post-apocalyptic action/horror, one part spaghetti western and, best of all, one part Arthur Bradley. The author’s stamp is evident throughout the book whether it is with the technical accuracy of the mechanical/scientific aspects, the military components, or, of course, the survivalist/prepping sections. I highly recommend reading both this novel and any that follow down the road.

    This is the first fictional book that I have read that was written by Arthur Bradley. I found the book to be a fun and fast read with very good character development. I enjoyed the story, while at the same time had that feeling in the pit of my stomach, about how easy it would be to wipe out the world’s population.
    The only thing I would have changed would have been a little more development of the spreading of the pandemic. Our hero was on a three week vacation and all hell broke loose while he was out of touch in the hills of North Carolina.
    I also noticed two typos / grammatical errors in the book. Considering the errors I normally see in this category. Arthur is almost perfect (or has a great editor).
    I look forward to reading more books in this series and would recommend this book.

    If you're like me and find yourself sitting around with your friends and discussing the ins and outs for surviving in a post apocalyptic world, then this book is perfect for you. "Frontier Justice" is a very fluid, fast paced read that keeps the reader entertained from the first page to the last. Arthur Bradley does a great job throughout the book of teaching the reader important survival techniques without making it feel forced. While many may find this to be their favorite aspect of the book, for me personally the amount of focus on how survivors would reform society was very entertaining and well thought out. A great book and I'm looking forward to the next one!

    Poorly written with very little character or plot development.  The main character comes off as a recycled, survivalist  version of Raylin Givens from the TV show Justified.   The writing is amateurish and the story lacks imagination.  Overall it would compare well with the story "Lights Out" which has been available for free on the internet for years.  If you liked Lights Out you might like this, otherwise, my advice is save your money and time.

    I am a big fan of everything Dr. Bradley has written and conside

    I am a big fan of everything Dr. Bradley has written and consider him to be the leading, no-nonsense, technical expert in the field of preparedness. So I was thrilled to see he had ventured in to the area of novel writing. I'll have to say I was impressed. The Survivalist is a great read that shows the author has a talent for fiction as well as non-fiction. This is a true page turner not easily put down. Gun slinging hero, Mason Raines, is a Deputy U.S. Marshall with a large Irish wolfhound for a sidekick. He seeks to clean up a small town in the North Carolina Mountains in a post-apocalyptic time stemming from a worldwide man-engineered pestilence. The plot seems ripped from the headlines (and much more believable than another zombie novel.) Ironically, the day I started reading The Survivalist, the story broke of a dangerous mutant influenza virus developed in a Chinese lab. I also highly recommend ordering Dr. Bradley's non-fiction preparedness books, especially The Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family and the Prepper's Instruction Manual.
