Ken's Tale:
Ken is determined to prep behind his wife's back, including the purchase of illegal weapons from a shady source found through a prepper friend. He has to try to keep his illegal meeting quiet from his employees and his wife, hope not to be ripped off or killed or arrested. Ken is about to have a very trying day!

Without giving away the plot, I liked this book. Poor hapless Ken goes through a lot of torment to try and get these weapons and it was an entertaining story.

Peterson Dilemma:
When the electricity and water goes off, Stanely is worried about keeping his employees from rioting and robbing him. The servants have their own ideas about where to be in the crisis and most are determined to look after their own families. Now the family need to find their own safe place out of town.

I wasn't greatly interested in the fate of Stanely's somewhat spoiled and stuck up family, who think the servants own families come after serving them. My sympathies are with the poor servants and I wasn't caring much about the Petersons dilemma.

These two are okay reads. The stories are moderately interesting and the writing is good. However, the writing should bring me in close to the characters and I needed to be more motivated to "turn the page." The word "economy" should be higher for a short story. There are many sentences that are arguably not needed, at least they add little. Still, overall a decent read.

I love finding out what happened before Desperate Times. You really come to care about the characters. These two stories are great on their own, even better when you add Desperate Times. What would you do if you thought anarchy was near? Here's a good primer.
