Without repeating or giving away anything, this is a fine apocalyptic read. I finished Book One, Minerva's Shield wanting more and now I got it. The journey is a preppers guide to survival and well worth reading for that alone. But I love the story, the characters and the mystery.  I love tales with zombies in it and this one has them as well. Also in plenty of alien intrigue or government conspiracy. That you will have to find out because the climax at the end of the book is jaw dropping and Now I have to wait on Book Three. I CAN'T WAIT! But I will. In the meantime, pick this one up and enjoy action, suspense and drama. Hope to see it on the big screen one day. It screams MOVIE!

They’re back! When I read Derek Hart’s first Novel, “Minerva’s Shield”, I began to find myself having vivid, dark dreams, which involved being immersed into what was happening to the characters in the novel. While slightly disturbing at first, I soon welcomed these dreams, as I seemed to realize, even during sleep, that I was in fact dreaming. It was as if I was watching a movie about what I had just read. Well, my nightly visits from the passages of Derek Hart’s vivid and descriptive writings are back, and welcomed as ever. “Nike’s Chariot,” Derek Hart’s second novel in his series about a post apocalyptic world, picks up where “Minerva’s Shield” ends. The world, as we know it, has come to a cataclysmic end leaving few clues. Our band of 30 survivors, led by Bob Norton, begin to try to piece together what happened and how they survived, while trying to build a new society with what is left. While they go about searching for supplies in the surrounding area, they soon realize that in order to prepare for a future, they need to know more about what had happened, and if anyone else had survived. Bob decides to try to return to the place that this all seemed to begin with at the Black Hills Ordinance Depot in South Dakota. Along with a hand picked team of twelve other survivors, they set out to South Dakota on a circuitous, multi-state route that allows them to gather supplies along the way to stockpile their new society, while also searching for anyone else that may have survived the catastrophe and ultimately to try to answer their main question of what happened. In short time, the team seems to have honed their skills at securing a safe house at each stop, searching for supplies and sending trucks back to the new society laden with looted goodies. On Bob’s orders, they gather as many weapons along the way as they can and soon have a vast arsenal at their disposal, as well as seeds, books, and other pertinent articles that might help the new society survive. Just as things begin to take on a predictable pattern Derek Hart throws some curves at the team. This is where it begins to get tense. Derek winds a tale with descriptive writing so intense that you can feel what the characters feel, smell what they smell and ultimately fear what they fear. “Nike’s Chariot” is a must read for all Derek Hart and Sci Fi fans. It is a definite page-turner that is sure to leave you wanting to read the next in his planned series.

Better than Minerva's Shield. I really couldn't wait to find out what they would discover and now there are many more questions. I was completely set up by the author, didn't expect the revelations, not the twists and turns. Bravo! Nike's Chariot made me wonder even more, can't wait for Apollo's Plague.

Nike's Chariot is the second installment of this series by Derek Hart, and if you've read the first one then you have no reason not to read this. As the author has said before, this book would be sure to leave the reader with more questions than answers, and he didn't fail to accomplish that! The book is reminiscent of the first one, but contains a changed perspective and focus from the cataclysm that took place earlier. It instead highlights the effects and ramifications of humans when the only thing that they have left is each other. Nevertheless, the suspense of what certain doom may be around the corner will keep you on the edge of your seat for every page of this book. I know that when I read it, I practically read the entire book in one day because I was so excited to see where the story had progressed! Overall, it is a terrific literary piece, and I am one of the many growing fans aptly awaiting the final chapters of the lives of the survivors in Nike's Chariot.

Want a riveting, nail-biting, on the edge of your seat read? Get Nike's Chariot by Derek Hart! Nike's Chariot picks up where Minerva's Shield leaves us. Follow Bob Norton, his son Ian, and their friends as they travel cross country in search of answers as to what caused the cataclysmic events leading to the mass destruction of the US (Minerva's Shield by Derek Hart). Check in on the friends left behind at the Bunker. As with Minerva's Shield, I could not put this book down. Derek Hart leaves his readers breathless, waiting to see what happens next. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

After Minerva's Shield I was looking forward to this book. I loved this book as well and am looking forward to the next. This book made me laugh, literally cry, worry about characters and basically kept me reading until my eyes were closing. I didn't want to put it down. I love Derek Hart and one day I shall own all of his published works. If you are thinking of buying this book, do. You will not be disappointed!

Nike's Chariot picks up right where Minerva's Shield leaves off. Its apocalyptic setting will draw you in along with its action and adventure. Trying to figure out what's caused all the events has been one fantastic mystery (Dragons? Zombies? Or both?) One small problem I had with Nike's Chariot was that during some points, the movement of the story felt slow. However, the last quarter of the book surely makes up for it with its fast-paced action and emotion. It's fantastic. I can't wait to see where the next book takes the group.

More history, more mystery, and more action. If you've read Minerva's Shield then you've no doubt got lots of questions, and Nike does sprinkle in some answers here and there, but just enough to wet your tongue. If you're thirsting for more of everything you loved about Minerva then you'll definitely get it here in the second book of the series as well as some nice surprises! Another great read by Derek Hart for sure!!! =P
