Say hello to Kasey, retired Army, who with some friends rescues four policemen from a crude prisoner camp down south of Texas. Kasey heard about ten more, a little way up north of that camp. However, his best friend, Abbie, is from near Denton, Texas, which is way up north. He is hoping that she can house all fourteen and maybe find more land to house many more if an all-out war breaks loose. First, Kasey must get into contact with his old friend, AJ, from Oklahoma and together he hopes they can rescue the other ten police. Abbie, who has not seen her NCOs in ten years, asks to meet her at the bookstore in Denton for who knows what. At the bookstore she finds out that both NCOs want her to house four policemen. They learn from Abbie that she might know of even more land that she can purchase.
Once the land is purchased, it takes Abbie, AJ, and Kasey, along with friends of Kasey and Abbie’s friend, Josh, over two months to fix up. As the camp starts to take shape, the trio enlists the help from Abbie’s military cook friend, Jefford, and the trio’s supplies sergeant. In the first two months of war, the four military friends run across another military friend, Adamson.
At the start of the war in another part of the country, we meet three brothers (Hunter, Bartlet, and Andy) and two friends of the brothers (Krystian and Camron). Two brothers and the two best friends go to a prisoner compound. Over the course of the six months, Abbie starts to feel bad. Pretty soon, the brothers’ and Abbie’s worlds are getting ready to crash into each other.
