Summary

Book IX of best-selling author Joe Nobody's series, Holding Their Own, explores how old grudges and long-simmering social divisions could threaten the recovery of post-apocalyptic Texas.

Bishop hatches a plan to pull Terri away from the stressful responsibility of managing the Alliance, but his scheme quickly goes awry. The couple finds themselves isolated, hunted, and in the middle of a modern-day range war.

Nick is leading Bishop's team while the Texan is away bonding with his family. Sent on a mission to integrate another community into the Alliance's fold, the operator becomes the subject of an extensive manhunt. His life depends on Grim, Cory, and Kevin igniting an uprising and exposing the foul deeds of a ruthless dictator.

The Salt War takes the reader on a high-speed, low-drag gallop through a world still struggling with social and economic recovery. Join Bishop, Terri, and their friends as the struggle to rebuild continues.

Ice pick to the ears.

My 11 year old would have narrated better. This was a truly painful listen of a lackluster story.

Stupid sounds added for no reason

I have no idea what idiot decided to add random being bang boom sounds throughout the entire book but it a sensually ruins the performance quality of what would be a great book and story.

Narrator Sucks

It was a hard book to finish only because the person reading does not know how to show emphasis or show odd cues in the reading. Pretty bad performance. Otherwise the story was pretty good

Book doesn't disappoint the series

I love how this book delved into racism, and unions, etc. Exploring, how these things would impact people after was really interesting

He didn't miss a beat!!

I was nervous that after a period of time since I finished the last book I'd forget key parts but after the first chapter my retrieval cues were flaring bringing up all the fond memories of Bishop and co. great ending! Or should I say new beginning?
