Continuing The Story

Bleeding is the second book in the Oil Apocalypse series by Lou Cadle. It takes place as one group of outsiders are trying to survive a world where the oil is gone. Where people have gone over the edge to survive and will take anything that they want. They are just trying to eek out an existence outside of this world — farming, utilizing both the sun and the wind to give them power.

In this book, we see some characters grow and others stay the same. There is a lot of internal

Starting where Slashed left off, Bleeding follows Dev and Sierra in their reconnaissance of the area, the surrounding neighborhoods similar to theirs first, and the town of Payson second. While we keep seeing how the group of survivors keep tending to their mundane chores and tasks to keep themselves well-fed and their lives more or less up to normal, we also learn how society in the rest of the country, and possibly the rest of the world, seem to have collapsed completely.

Perhaps 3.5 stars rounded down. Bleeding isn't as good as Slashed, but in this the second book in the Oil Apocalypse Series, Lou Cadle settles his characters into their new way of life. A few waves of attackers come to kill them, but they resist well. They are always out numbered but they are turning into an elite fighting force. A few of our main characters get hurt and a few newcomers join the team, but nothing extraordinary happens.
But Sierra has big plans for book three.

The storyline for this series is interesting and character development is well done. This is, in my opinion, a good read for those interested in apocalyptic fiction. I have a not so secret love of apocalyptic fiction. I enjoy reading about the many ways folks "handle" a society collapse. I did not rate it higher only because I do not consider it especially "literate". Like a bag of popcorn - it is not especially filling nor does it provide much nourishment - but I like it... smile

Great Read!

There's a good story line and soon you feel like you really know each character. Their daily lives are realistic, describing what it takes for survival. There's plenty of action, yet not overboard on the gore of killing. I'm reading them all!

Excellent and thought provoking.

This and the previous book in this series not only entertained but taught me voluminous amounts about survival during crisis but also commonsense and ethical morality. Great writing. Thank you.

This is a very good second book to the series. Arch is a little toned down. I like that there are two strong females, Kelly and Sierra though this is starting to become a little bit of a Sierra show.

Very good book 2 in a series. Set in a bit of a futuristic setting, this book is very believable. The author is an excellent writer and you find yourself invested in the characters. Highly recommend.
