After Dee narrowly avoids being conscripted into his youth army, she is forced to watch her friends suffer at his hands. She will risk everything to rescue her loved ones in this taut post-apocalyptic thriller! * * * Excerpt from Chapter 2 of Sabotage * * * Dee saw a middle-aged man stagger into the health clinic, bright red blood staining the front of his oversized flannel shirt. Dee rushed to help him inside but he pushed her away, “Not me, I’m fine. Help her.” He opened his shirt and Dee saw that he carried a golden retriever in his arms. Her liquid brown eyes looked steadily at her owner. Anywhere else the man would have been sent away, but Linda had worked with her grandpa in his veterinarian practice. She came out from behind the desk and touched the dog gently on the head. “Oh no, not Mabel.” “Can you help her?” the man pleaded, his voice raw with pain. “She’s all I’ve got.” Linda handed the collar to Dee. “Take them into room five and set her up on the exam table for now. I’ll send Doc Kerns in when he’s free.” The man moved towards the back of the room, and Linda gave Dee a sad look and slight shake of her head. Dee followed the man, her heart breaking for him. “It’s going to be okay, sir,” she heard herself say. “Let’s see if we can make her comfortable until the doctor can see her. “She saved me,” said the man, his voice cracking. “I don’t even own a gun. I don’t know what I’d do without her.” Dee helped him lay Mabel gently on the table. She licked her owner’s hand in an affectionate gesture, keeping her intelligent eyes on him the entire time. “She knows she ain’t gonna make it,” he said, tears silently streaming down his face. Dee closed the door behind her, to give him some privacy with his companion. She wiped her eyes and looked around the room before walking to Linda. “Who’s next?” The night didn’t get any easier. Dee saw her grandpa come out of Mabel’s exam room, shaking his head. About fifteen minutes later, the owner came out, empty-handed. “She’s gone,” he said simply and made his way out of the clinic. “Poor man,” said Linda. “He must be devastated.” “He should have something to remember her,” said Dee. “I’ll be right back.” Dee ran after him, holding the collar in her hand. He took it from her with thanks, then turned and went into the night. She stood for a few minutes, letting the crisp night air refresh her. A sound nearby startled her, and she jumped. Out of the shadows another man materialized. He cradled his arms around his mid-section and came towards her. “Help me,” he said, and stumbled. Dee automatically moved to support him and he leaned heavily on her. “Come in,” said Dee. “My grandpa’s the doctor. He can help you.” Inside, she tried to help the man to a seat but he clung to her, so she brought him to Linda at the front desk. “I’ve got a new patient here,” said Dee. “I think it’s serious.” Linda looked up, business-like, to assess the new patient. Dee saw her face grow very still, her movements careful. “Sure, Dee....

    Out of the three books, I've liked this one the least. It just couldn't hold my interest as well as the previous two had, so I didn't enjoy it quite so much. Overall, Not the best, but an okay read.

    Review: SABOTAGE by Ellisa Barr [Powerless Nation #3]SABOTAGE is sure to delight readers who've loved the first two books in the Powerless Nation series. Perhaps a few aspects of life have improved after seven months, but most are just as negative, if not worse. There's certainly no shortage of greed and subsequent violence. Trouble and danger are present in town too; that's not confined to the countryside. Dee' s grandpa is needed in town to act as a physician, so she and her parents move into town also, and enter right into the heart of danger. SABOTAGE is a likeable and fast-paced read which keeps the reader pondering, "Just what IF?"

    SabotageThis is the third book in this series and to see it end was a heartbreaker but a joy as well. Just to think life could really happen like that and those kids were so brave at what they had to go through...

    I very much like these books. I think they are more for teenagers and I'm 44,but I liked them lots of good info cant wait for 4. More people need to be prepared as a child of the cold we were scared of nuclear war, all the drills. We need to prepare ourselves and our children for whatever tomorrow brings

    Very good seriesI really loved the series as a whole great characters. The final conflict in the last book was a little anti-climatic almost seen like you were rushing to get to the end. Overall a very enjoyable series

    ExcellentI really enjoyed this series. It was unbelievable at times, but very entertaining. It shows how you have to believe in yourself & others to get things done. Each book was tied together nicely, while having their own identity. Each story could be a stand alone story, or they fit together perfectly.

    This is a good series, and I enjoyed it. Would have liked one more installment, however. Would have liked to find out what happened to everyone in the end.
