One Year After is the New York Times bestselling follow-up to William R. Forstchen’s smash hit One Second After, the novel cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read
The story begins one year after One Second After ends, two years since nuclear weapons were detonated above the United States and brought America to its knees. After months of suffering starvation, war, and countless deaths, the survivors of Black Mountain, North Carolina, are beginning to recover technology and supplies they had once taken for granted, like electricity, radio communications, and medications. When a “federal administrator” arrives in a nearby city, they dare to hope that a new national government is finally emerging.
That hope quickly diminishes when town administrator John Matherson learns that most of the young men and women in the community are to be drafted into the “Army of National Recovery” and sent to trouble spots hundreds of miles away. He and the people of Black Mountain protest vehemently. But “the New Regime” is already tyrannizing one nearby community.
Will Matherson’s friends and neighbors be next?

Enjoyed it immensely. It picked up well and introduced other characters some you will love to hate. Still wondering what those messages from the BBC mean but that may be for another book...
Great plot, terrible writing
I got hooked on the story with his 1st book in the series and bought this one on publication day. The great plot and story line continued, but a short time in to the book I realized this guy is a horrific writer! I mean so bad that a high school creative writing teacher would cringe at all the hyperbole, overwrought adjectives and other assorted crimes against the language. But for some doomsday brain candy, a good read.
One Year After
Now that I've just finished this one, I must say " hope the next one comes out before too long.
Great job !
If this book is just half as good as "One Second After" it will be a pleasure to spend the $12.99
If you've not read the 1st go now and get it on whatever format you wish, but buy it.
