Review of BACKLASH by S. A. Hoag
(WILDBLOOD 0.5)

BACKLASH is an exciting non-stop YA thriller, post-apocalyptic, with elements of Dystopia and science fiction, as well as a flavour of romance and young love. Sixteen years after World War Last, life is difficult, often made more so by Nomads and Scavengers. Protection and defense are lessons learned early. Young people, including adolescents, are trained as Scouts and Guardians. A minority are genetically engineered and have developed psychic capa

I loved it! Another fun and exciting read!

Security are in charge of the safety of The Vista, keeping the citizens safe from Nomads and Scavengers. A group of Nomads are determined to wreak havoc in The Vista and it's up to Security to stop them.

Backlash is a great prequel to The Vista! It takes place 3 years before The Vista and centers

Vista Security is used to the feral bands of human wandering the landscape since a brief and devastating war wiped away civilization. Sixteen years later, they've adapted to dealing with the challenges facing their safe haven.

That is, until a new threat appears, one they never expected and one they have little defense against. Security throws in everything they can muster; it quickly takes a toll. Their advantage - an untested team of

Hooks you

This draws you right in from the first page. But, guess I should have started with book one first because it was a little confusing. Kind of like trying to get into a conversation that is half over. But, it does make you want to read book one. Lol

Great Dystopian Sci-fi. First rate with action and even a little clean romance. You won't be disappointed. Not a stand alone book, Danny Scott.

Bloodlines: Book 3 of The Wildblood is finally out and, since it’s been a while, I decided to binge on the whole series, starting with S. A. Hoag’s Backlash: Prequel to The Wildblood Series (which you can still get for free on Kindle). It’s funny as I’m not usually a fan of dystopian or post-apocalypse tales but this post “World War Last” series just sucked me in. The author story-building is just perfect, from Vista, the home enclave of the series’ lead characters, to the “Altered” clans (and t ...more

I received this story as part of a promotional give away in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Let me preface this by reiterating the old adage, "Those who cannot do, criticize."

Overall, I enjoyed the premise of this story, but I felt that it is in serious need of an editor. I'm dyslexic, so I really didn't notice any glaring spelling errors, but the way the story progressed seems a bit herky-jerky. I often found myself lost and having to go back to try and pick up the continuity. I don't kno

A great story with visions of a dark future.



S.A. Hoag has created a realistic post-apocalyptic world of survivors struggling to retain the old technology. 

This is my first introduction to S.A. Hoag and I'm hooked. Backlash is a page-turning prequel that truly leaves you wanting more. I can't wait to see where this story goes!

A generation ago over 800 billion lives were destroyed. As far as Vista is concerned their small town of survivors may be the last of civilized humanity and they are trying

A Great Beginning

This prequel has me hooked. I must read the series to find out what happens. The story of the GenEns is intriguing and has my curiosity aroused. Shannon, Wade, and Mac are young people affected by World War Last and genetic experiments. They protect survivors and their offspring but what does the future hold. To find out I will read the series.

Maybe I should have read book 1 first. This was boring and not enjoyable.

This is laying the groundwork for the next in the series.

Its a little short, but I enjoyed both the action & the characters.

Plus, its set in Montana.

Wow. What a prequel. Can't wait to get my teeth into the series proper. All action and interesting characters that you easily bonded with. I enjoyed this book sooooo much.

I picked up this book during a promotion on Instafreebie as the blurb sounded interesting to me. I love the dystopian, post apocalyptic genre and this fit the bill for me. The beginning of the book was a little confusing for me because it started off with very little background on the characters and what they were up against. The book continues with a lot of action and ends abruptly so I went back to the beginning and read it again. Being a short prequel it didn't take long. I learned to like th ...more
