"In an ideal world every member of this community would contribute to the decision because it will have dire, potentially fatal, impacts on them. We don't live in that ideal place, but all of you are the neighborhood representatives. This has to be a collective decision because we will all have to live with the consequences. If we attack it is almost guaranteed that some of our people will die. We have to share in that responsibility," Herb said.The Rule of Three: Fight for Power by Eric Walters. I got this review copy from Macmillan. This is the second book in this post-apocalyptic thriller. Here is the description from Amazon:
After sixty-six days of a catastrophic global blackout, life in the suburbs is not what it used to be for Adam and his fortified neighborhood of Eden Mills. Although an explosive clash has minimized one threat from outside the walls, Adam’s battle-hardened mentor, Herb, continues to make decisions in the name of security that are increasingly wrenching and questionable. Like his police chief mom and others, Adam will follow Herb’s lead. But when the next threat comes from an unexpected direction, nobody is ready for it. And someone is going to pay the price—because of Adam’s mistakes and mistaken trust.
