Landlocked by Cindy Jacks is a wonderful science fiction romance. It’s filled with action, intrigue, and mystery. The story takes place in a future time on earth or some might consider it an alternate reality. However you might consider, Landlocked rips apart the nation and sends part of the United States back into the dark ages through war and constant struggles.

The heroine of the story, Kathryn, is left to care for her young son in a very scary world. Her husband disappeared five years earlier

"Landlocked" was an action-packed, humorous, and erotic tale that set the pages ablaze while ensaring the readers from chapter one. Cindy Jacks certainly knows how to tell a story while keeping the integrity of the characters and the world she has created intact and interesting.

Landlocked takes place in what used to be the southern US following a war that destroyed the US as we know it, 10 years ago. Kathryn struggles day to day to provide for herself and her son since her husband disappeared 5 years earlier. Texas and parts of the west coast are the only safe places to live after the Reformers have taken over other parts of the US.
This book is a short novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. I felt the harshness of life and the despair that Kathryn felt. It is not said who at
