Redfall: Freedom Fighters (American Prepper Series Book 2) by Jay J. Falconer is the second book in a dystopian fiction series that shows what happens to the world after a deadly red rain falls across the country. Simon Redfall is a survivalist who works with a group of freedom fighters. Their job is to learn everything they can about a storm that has been unleashed across our country so that they can stop it, combat it, or discover the reason for it. Their search leads Simon to Jeffrey Hansen. Jeffrey is a former military intelligence operative who is dedicated to his mission. Simon can’t believe the devastation behind Jeffrey’s weather control technology, but he is frightened to discover there is something coming that's even worse than Jeffrey’s goals. Without Simon’s help, the country will never be prepared for what is coming after Jeffrey’s deadly storm.

I really enjoyed Redfall: Freedom Fighters. It is probably one of the most unique stories about the end of the world that anyone can read, and that’s what makes it so hard to put down. Falconer has created this incredibly complex world, with dark, scary characters but also incredibly proud heroes who want to lead the country on a comeback mission. I love the survivalist aspect and really enjoyed learning about how the characters survived in this dangerous new world. I think the educational aspects of this story are fascinating and, while I hope no one ever has to use them, I think people will enjoy reading about them and learning something from a book they thought was pure entertainment.

After his wife was convicted and executed in front of the whole world, Simon Redfall was left with nothing but endless questions regarding his wife's merciless actions. How could Tessa murder all those people? Did she really do it? Why would she do it? Simon and his small group of accomplices, working off the grid, then discovered some very disturbing patterns leading them to believe that Tessa was not a murderer but rather a victim herself, as were many others. The more the group put pieces of the wicked puzzle together, the clearer it became that humanity as they knew it was at risk, but also the more unanswered questions they raised. From the looks of things, an evil master plan was in the works and, if not stopped, it would be the end of civilization. This is the kind of evil plan that turns a president into an assassin. However, the big question that still needed to be answered was who was really behind this and what was their end game?

Redfall: Freedom Fighters (American Prepper Series Book 2) by Jay J. Falconer is the second installment in what is proving to be a unique and thrilling dystopian story. This is not your everyday end-of-the-world novel. It is a perfect sci-fi thriller within a one-of-a-kind conspiracy to give you the ultimate reading experience. The story blends all the elements of the dystopian and science fiction genres and Jay J. Falconer's words capture the emotions and intensity of the situations. The theories in the book are unbelievably outrageous and yet Jay J. Falconer made them effortlessly believable. I can always tell an excellent story after reading just a few pages and Redfall: Freedom Fighters was no exception to this rule. Right away, I knew I was in for a thrilling treat.

Redfall: Freedom Fighters (American Prepper Series Book 2) by Jay J. Falconer is a dystopian fiction story about the red rain falling across the world. When it stops, can the citizens recover? Simon Redfall is a survivalist. He and his group of freedom fighters are on a mission to learn more about the red storms that are swarming across the planet. But the more secrets they uncover, the more they are stunned by their knowledge. The mysterious storm leads to Jeffrey Hansen, a former military intelligence officer, and his weather control technology. Jeffrey is committed, dedicated to his mission, and won’t stop until he’s achieved his horrible goals. But Simon discovers that there is more at stake than just Jeffrey’s weather controlling technology. And no one is prepared for what is about to come after the storm.

Redfall: Freedom Fighters is an interesting dystopian story that got me thinking about patriotism, survivalists, and the end of the world. I liked the characters in this story, especially Simon, and thought that Falconer did a good job of realistically describing his survivalist skills. That part of the book was very interesting to me, and I enjoyed learning how Simon and his freedom fighters survived in a dark and dangerous world. I think this is a fascinating series that is exciting, poses a lot of intellectual questions, and makes a person really think about the story’s premise long after the book is over. I commend Falconer for that. He did an excellent job pulling me into the story and keeping my interest as I watched the mystery unfold.
