Have you read the first book in this series yet? If you have, I can’t believe you have the self-control to read the reviews because I would have been diving into book 2 if it had been available when I finished book 1. If not, don’t even consider reading this one. The first book ended on a cliffhanger ending. This one picks up where the first one left off with zero recap. I did read the first book but it was a few weeks ago though and I’ve read a few books since then, some of them in drastically different genres. I was so lost in the beginning that I went back to the first book and read the last few chapters to refresh myself on what had been happening. There are a lot of different characters who are very important. JJ Falconer is skilled at weaving these plot threads and they feel like necessary viewpoints but it can be a little confusing at times to keep people sorted out. I enjoyed the characters and their development over the course of this book. The ending was definitely open to the next book but it felt like an okay stopping place and not as abrupt as book 1. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for reading it, rating it, and giving an honest review. Even admitting that, I was excited to see that Redfall book 2 was available and jumped at the chance to review it. I’m looking forward to book 3. I also recommend other books by this author if you enjoy the writing style and fast paced action of this book.

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. This was a very interesting book and a very promising series! The more I read, the more faster I was beginning to read. I like that there is constantly some action, mainly when there's Simon involved. I really like his character, he is obviously very smart and highly trained to deal with all kinds of situations. One thing I don't get is how did he miss the most obvious thing - the tracks that they're leaving when they're carrying Wyatt. Anyway I think the author was very exact in his description of the life of the rich in the face of Blake Anderchuck for example. I can't wait to see how the meeting with Jigsaw will go. Also I'm curious what will happen with Hansen. I excpected to read more about the red rain situation but this book was mainly about the Survival of Pandora. Significant part played the repulsive Carnegie brothers and fortunately they got exactly what they deserved. The twist with President Cooper was really surprising - it was hard for me to assimilate what was going on, I couldn't believe it! I'm curious who would be the next victim and how exactly they brainwash them (apart from what the author had already told us). I would be happy to read the third book of the series and I would gladly recomend it to friends, especially ones who like this kind of "survival" books. I've read the "Glassford Girl" series so far from this author too and I would enjoy reading something else too.

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. I can honestly say that I enjoyed more Book 1 from the Redfall series by Jay J Falconer. In this book the story is similarly as in the first book composed of more threads with approximately equal importance. I do think the main one should occupy more space. At some point I had the feeling that the book contains a bit too many characters and felt that the jumping from one story to another can be a bit tiring for the reader.I still love the author's fast paced and very accessible writing style. I was looking forward to read and see what happens next and I am looking forward to read part 3. I am quite attached to the main characters and especially to Simon, Wicks and the other youngsters. The story goes further and Simon gets to know the young crowd he teamed up with more. He gets into some trouble but manages to solve everything in a way that protects the young team he joined. I am not a big fan of the subtleties between Wicks and Simon and I do hope this remains as it should be and not develop into something strange. The book contains some violence and some colored language but nothing too extreme or not expected in specific situations. Wicks relationship and story with her brother is well developed in the book and offers some insight into the past. I can honestly say I have never read the word "Cough" so many times in a book. It really made me laugh and imagine lots of coughing when reading: "cough....cough cough......a bit later .... cough cough cough". All others parallel stories (e.g. POTUS) unravel a bit more about how everyone is affected by the major changes and events and their role in the plot is slowly revealed to the reader. I recommend this book as a great read, fast paced with non stop action and plenty of twists. I am looking forward to reading the next book to see what happens.

Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Redfall: Freedom Fighters (American Prepper Series Book 2) by Jay J. Falconer is a dystopian fiction story about the red rain falling across the world. When it stops, can the citizens recover? Simon Redfall is a survivalist. He and his group of freedom fighters are on a mission to learn more about the red storms that are swarming across the planet. But the more secrets they uncover, the more they are stunned by their knowledge. The mysterious storm leads to Jeffrey Hansen, a former military intelligence officer, and his weather control technology. Jeffrey is committed, dedicated to his mission, and won’t stop until he’s achieved his horrible goals. But Simon discovers that there is more at stake than just Jeffrey’s weather controlling technology. And no one is prepared for what is about to come after the storm. Redfall: Freedom Fighters is an interesting dystopian story that got me thinking about patriotism, survivalists, and the end of the world. I liked the characters in this story, especially Simon, and thought that Falconer did a good job of realistically describing his survivalist skills. That part of the book was very interesting to me, and I enjoyed learning how Simon and his freedom fighters survived in a dark and dangerous world. I think this is a fascinating series that is exciting, poses a lot of intellectual questions, and makes a person really think about the story’s premise long after the book is over. I commend Falconer for that. He did an excellent job pulling me into the story and keeping my interest as I watched the mystery unfold.

Reviewed by Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite After his wife was convicted and executed in front of the whole world, Simon Redfall was left with nothing but endless questions regarding his wife's merciless actions. How could Tessa murder all those people? Did she really do it? Why would she do it? Simon and his small group of accomplices, working off the grid, then discovered some very disturbing patterns leading them to believe that Tessa was not a murderer but rather a victim herself, as were many others. The more the group put pieces of the wicked puzzle together, the clearer it became that humanity as they knew it was at risk, but also the more unanswered questions they raised. From the looks of things, an evil master plan was in the works and, if not stopped, it would be the end of civilization. This is the kind of evil plan that turns a president into an assassin. However, the big question that still needed to be answered was who was really behind this and what was their end game? Redfall: Freedom Fighters (American Prepper Series Book 2) by Jay J. Falconer is the second installment in what is proving to be a unique and thrilling dystopian story. This is not your everyday end-of-the-world novel. It is a perfect sci-fi thriller within a one-of-a-kind conspiracy to give you the ultimate reading experience. The story blends all the elements of the dystopian and science fiction genres and Jay J. Falconer's words capture the emotions and intensity of the situations. The theories in the book are unbelievably outrageous and yet Jay J. Falconer made them effortlessly believable. I can always tell an excellent story after reading just a few pages and Redfall: Freedom Fighters was no exception to this rule. Right away, I knew I was in for a thrilling treat.

Reviewed by Taylor Wade for Readers' Favorite Redfall: Freedom Fighters (American Prepper Series Book 2) by Jay J. Falconer is the second book in a dystopian fiction series that shows what happens to the world after a deadly red rain falls across the country. Simon Redfall is a survivalist who works with a group of freedom fighters. Their job is to learn everything they can about a storm that has been unleashed across our country so that they can stop it, combat it, or discover the reason for it. Their search leads Simon to Jeffrey Hansen. Jeffrey is a former military intelligence operative who is dedicated to his mission. Simon can’t believe the devastation behind Jeffrey’s weather control technology, but he is frightened to discover there is something coming that's even worse than Jeffrey’s goals. Without Simon’s help, the country will never be prepared for what is coming after Jeffrey’s deadly storm. I really enjoyed Redfall: Freedom Fighters. It is probably one of the most unique stories about the end of the world that anyone can read, and that’s what makes it so hard to put down. Falconer has created this incredibly complex world, with dark, scary characters but also incredibly proud heroes who want to lead the country on a comeback mission. I love the survivalist aspect and really enjoyed learning about how the characters survived in this dangerous new world. I think the educational aspects of this story are fascinating and, while I hope no one ever has to use them, I think people will enjoy reading about them and learning something from a book they thought was pure entertainment.

Spectacular story! I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. I have to admit that it took me longer than usual to read this book. I am familiar with Falconer's other works (Glassford Girl, time-jumper series) which I thoroughly enjoyed. With this being a different topic and not one that I normally read, it did take a bit of time to get into it. But once I did, there was no stopping. With the incident of armed militants taking over an Oregon State Park still fresh on my mind, I found renewed vigor in reading Redfall: Book 2. If you are a fan of military settings including navy ships and general combat and tactical lingo as well as espionage, thrillers and apocalyptic tales then you would enjoy this particular book. It took me a while to understand the acronyms and what they stood for but that was a minor inconvenience overall. Simon Redfall is the story's protagonist, surrounded by allies Wicks and G. One after another, they witness insane events that pose even more threats to the people - even to the President.And as I went through the story, I was faced with various questions that don't seem to make sense at the time. the biggest one being: what does Jeffrey Hansen and RaineTech have to do with it all? This story is definitely not suitable nor recommended for under 18's. A lot of graphic violence and other adult-oriented scenes. Also, this has nothing to do with the story but G's software program shares a nickname with my younger self, adding extra points from my perspective.

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. I am a big fan of Jay's Glassford Girl series and was excited to be able to read some of his other work. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to read book 1 of the series, it would have been nice to have a small paragraph about what's happened so far before the first chapter as it was a bit hard to understand who is who and what at first. I did read the summary of the first book and a couple of reviews but it would definitely benefit from it :). What I knew, and got confirmed with the story is, that the author has a very unique way of telling a story, it starts off quick, it drags you in and doesn't let go until you're finished. There's always something happening, some revelation incoming. Chapters 5 and 6 had me wanting to get to the end this very instant. Everything they realized happened to Tessa was unfolding so quick it was hard to remember to breathe! There seems to be a lot of jumping from one person to another each chapter, but since they are short (a couple of pages each) it is okay to follow along after a while. Again, I imagine it would have been better had I read the previous book first. I really enjoyed the book, the setting is believable and makes one think about what they'd do had they been in the situation everyone is in. Simon really grew on me and I want to see him find out (and maybe even fix) what's happening. I'm very curious to find out whether his name is somehow linked to the red rain, what will happen to all those important people who were being brought to the retreat center and mostly what is really going on. I can't wait until the next book is out and would love to read the first one too. Would I recommend this book? Absolutely! And I also recommend extending your reads to the other books of the author, they've all been great so far. Well deserved 5 stars from me!!
