The tiniest spark can light an inferno
4 out of 5 stars
Bobby Akart understands his demographic and boy did he ever write a book aimed right at them. I’ve been a fan of Bobby’s books for a while now, and this one was no different. Martial Law had a lot going on in it and was the first book in the series where things start to hit the fan.
Martial Law is the third book in the Boston Brahmin series, and as I mentioned above, is the first “apocalyptic” book. It’s still before and during an event (or events) and shows what the members of the elite Boston Brahmin are doing to prepare and stay safe.
You can tell that Bobby had a series-wide story arc in mind when writing this series — especially after you finish Martial Law. The first two books set this one up, and this one will definitely set up everything that is to come. The Boston Brahmin will fight on.
The actual attack (though there isn’t a ton of information around it) is incredibly realistic and well thought out. As were the interactions with the everyday “normal” neighbors. Every interaction and conversation felt like it could have been real and would have really happened in the situation.
There were some cheesy parts revolving around the fictional writer of “Choose Freedom” intermixed within (they were the only parts of the entire book that felt forced). But, I also understand why they were written the way they were (and why they were included). They allow the reader to understand that these people all follow the same thought processes and that they all agree with the author of that book.
Akart has a knack for writing books that feel like they are re-telling of real stories and Martial Law was no different. A great addition to the series. I cannot wait to figure out what happens in the upcoming books.
