“My past was coming back to haunt me”
4.25 out of 5 stars
This one has some tags that say it’s a military book too, but it’s really is a Post-Apocalyptic book at heart. Ryker has been surviving with his family after some unknown collapse until one day they cannot stay safely anymore. This leaves Ryker to have to go back to a life that he thought he left behind.
The narration of Patriot Protocol was done by James Foster, who does a great job voicing Ryker. It was one of those narrations that I didn’t even notice because it just felt like Ryker was telling me his story.
The story was from a slightly different point of view. Most of the PA books I’ve read have a “been there, done that” feeling to them. This one had some of that, with some new sparks of life, too. The reorganization of the states was a little different, the way that the world was destroyed was super different from the average PA book (I will NOT ruin that for you, since it doesn’t come until the book is almost over), and the outcome of the book was pretty different too (another spoiler I will not spoil).
Ryker was an incredibly likable main character. You could just tell that he always meant to do the best. He is the definition of a hero and won’t let you call him that.
Overall, The Patriot Protocol was an enjoyable read, and I will definitely be curious where Cooper will take Ryker in the next book (that I didn’t know existed when I started this book).

The Tennessee Zone
It's been ten years since The Collapse. The survivors live off what they can grow, find or steal. A man known as Ryker is among the survivors, a family man with a mysterious past. When his family's relative safety is taken, he's forced to join what's left of civilization to care for his wife and children. But will his newfound allegiance to the government of The Tennessee Zone save them or plunge them into darker peril, and will the powers-that-be use Ryker for their own nefarious needs?
