Publisher's Summary

A reluctant hero.

Devil Dog, book one:

Dick aka Devil Dog's world changes drastically when the EMP takes out the power grid. The loss of electricity brings out the darker side of human nature across the city. A homeless Marine veteran living in the abandoned tunnels beneath Chicago, he's far better prepared than most people. Good folk have survived, but they are often outnumbered and outgunned. Only the tunnels provide the safety he needs.

Devil Dog becomes the reluctant savior of women and children from the worst of the gangs that now rule topside. Doing the right thing makes him new enemies, driving him ever deeper into the tunnels that keep his charges safe - until he runs across a young woman who might be his daughter.

The Devil’s Road, book two:

With the horrors of Chicago put down hard, Dick aka Devil Dog, Jamie, Mel, Luis, and Courtney head west, where they are hoping to reunite with family. There are only a few problems along the way.... Only a few.

Rabid Cannibals, hunted by psychotic raiders, and a town that's forcing a "tithe" on travelers and a government gone wild...all before the main event....

If you like a good old-fashioned "good guys vs. bad guys" fast-action and a post-apocalyptic thriller, you're going to love the Devil Dog Saga.

The Devil’s Due, book three:

Live like the dead, or sleep like the dead? Dick makes his choice....

Dick is finally clean - mind and body - from his poisonous addiction, only to be sent reeling again upon awakening and discovering Steve and Jamie have startling secrets of their own. It will take every ounce of focus and resolve to shake off his new reality and make a trek to Arkansas to reunite with his wife and daughter, especially with the other challenges he faces along the way. He thought he was ready to face the world anew, until he realized the world was out to get him first.

Devil Dog III is the ending to the action-packed prepper thriller trilogy, filled with real-life gut-wrenching decisions, and a twist so sharp it may snap your neck.

Proceed with caution!

Solid....

Found this entertaining throughout. I think the second book was the best and only once or twice, during this three book journey, did I want the story to “get in with it” but really you never wait long for that. It did get a little situationally repetitive at times and the narrator doesn’t differentiate his characters amazingly but it did not detract from the enjoyment. Would def “read” another of this authors stories even with the same narrator.

KSG is not a DP12

I can't believe this guy only did a minor 15second google search of the KSG to constantly make the KSG as the DP12 Or the Utas. It seems far too many times he just says this one is that one and that one is this one. He says early on that "pull the trigger twice and then pump." He seems to like the KSG as the main weapon of choice for Dick but he doesn't sound like he knows the actual weapon. ... "pull the trigger twice then pump...". Seriously?? Thats like being a dumb politician calling an AR15 a scary 30cal bolt-action fully semi-automatic ghost laser with detachable diesel chainsaw attachment gun.

Other than that. The story is a good enough story line and in general.

Has a few too many concept flaws. But if he writes them in a weekend that might explain the weak weaponology and the modern warfare video game references to certain things and tactics. Or attempts to draw in unknowing readers.

I also don't get why he makes every bad guy wearing a "MAGA" hat. Did the author cry on election night?....

Fantastic

If you haven’t read or listened to any of this authors books, fix that immediately! The story has so much depth that I cannot fathom how he does it.

Oh Boyd Craven you little devil. Never saw that ending coming. WOW. Love the characters, they become friends, I found myself cheering them along. Kevin Pierce does an awesome job of bringing the story to life.

True understanding

I liked the books. There were several inconsistencies regarding guns such as the ksg shooting from 2 barrels as stated in book 2 like the dp12 and also among other tactics and weapons used by the the brothers I served with. There is also an issue I have in book 3 that the redneck robbers had on trump hats. Can we agree that this is not a place to unload political views. The government sucks I know but just let me enjoy your story and please don’t push the popular opinion down my throat! Otherwise great storytelling.

Amazing book.

It’s not that I’m looking to bitch because this was the best book I’ve been through in a year +. I have to say though, a stick shift HMMWV? Dude, did you ever sit in one? They don’t make 5-Speed HMMWV’s. With all the effort you must have put into this book how could you get that so wrong??

A1

I bought the trilogy and dove straight in mainly because it was narrated by Mr. Pierce who was the voice of Franklin Hortons series and didn't really expect what I got from the series.
Although my story has a different ending and of course the world hasn't gone shit as much as this story has portrayed, changed some names and this could have been me.
so maybe you could understand the I don't want to finish and the I must finish the series delima I faced.
fortunately my "Mary and Maggie" encouraged me to follow through. I'm glad I did. For those who were never down range, it was a small glimpse into the struggles.
I would read or listen to them again and will recommend.
