Overview

Expatriates: A Novel of the Coming Global Collapse by James Wesley Rawles, Eric G. Dove

If the world as we know it ended tomorrow, would you survive?

When the United States suffers a major socioeconomic collapse, a power vacuum sweeps the globe. A newly radicalized Islamic government rises to power in Indonesia, invading the Philippines, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and finally Northern Australia. No longer protected by American military interests, Australia must repel this invasion alone.

In the thick of these political maneuvers, Peter and Rhiannon Jeffords, American Christian missionaries living in the Philippines, and Chuck Nolan, a Texas petroleum engineer working in Australia, must face the fear of being strangers in a world in flux. Meanwhile, the Jeffords’ relatives back in Florida struggle to defend themselves against the widespread looting and destruction left in the wake of the US government’s collapse.

As news spreads of Indonesia’s merciless advances, Peter and Rhiannon must abandon their home and missionary post to avoid certain death, turning to their neighbors Paul Navarro and his teenage grandson, Joseph, to help them make the perilous 1,700-mile journey to Australia in a small boat.

But with much of Australia’s navy and air force destroyed, a desperate ground war against Indonesia begins, pulling the Jeffords, the Navarros, and Chuck Nolan into a struggle that will determine the safety of their homes, livelihoods, and families.

Featuring brand-new characters, story lines that span the globe, and the authentic survivalist skills and unwavering faith needed to survive a global socioeconomic meltdown, Expatriates cements James Wesley, Rawles’s reputation as a leading expert and writer in the genre.

Another one on the good side of this up and down series. Expatriates looks at life after an economic collapse from outside of the US (vs the previous ones which were more US centric). This follows the same template as his other books with mixing in some action, military tactics, useful prepping information and religion to tell the story of what might happen after a worldwide economic collapse. This installment is a bit lacking in action (otherwise it would have easily been a 4-5 star book in my opinion) but also includes much less religion than some of this other books (it’s there but doesn’t go on for chapters as it did in Founders). If you want some real world ideas with your post-apocalyptic adventure this is a good choice.

I like JWR's previous three books, but this is a poor attempt to latch on to that brand. The characters and scenes are poorly developed and if you don't already know main Crunch storyline you could easily be confused. Overall this story feels forced and hurried to capitalize on previous success. It took me forever to read because nothing was written well enough to hold my interest unless I forced myself to continue.

I bought this book today as I have always like his writings. I enjoyed this book more than the last two, and as much as the original book. The new characters and locales were a exciting to read about and to get to know, and the plot, outside of the common unifying theme, is entirely plausible. Anyone that enjoy his books, or this genre will not go wrong with this novel.

Rawles pulls another one out of his head and from an angle I didn't see coming. I just wish they would make a TV series or something.

She walks through the trees, her ears adjusting to hear every sound. Off by a willow she hears a squeak of a mouse. Her tail tail swishes as she silently pads towards it before droping into a hunting crouch. The mouse eats away at its dinner as she jumps and kills it with ease. Padding over to a bush she digs a whole and drops her kill in it. Her tail brushes dirt over the hole as she leaves to continue hunting.
