David's Digest: Charmed, I'm Sure

This is a short book review for Mr. Bunker and Chris Awalt's next volume in the fictional "W1CK" series entitled "W1CK 2: The Charm School."

This picks up where W1CK left off, in the Charm School, the U.S. hidden and secret town that raised people as Russians to be spies for the U.S. that was introduced in the first volume. It begins with the uprising that started at the end of volume 1 inside Warwick, taking you through the personal and societal turmoils of those in the town, which parallel the upheaval escalating outside in the U.S. after the natural disasters that had just happened, and more details are revealed about the overall plans of the powers that be for the future of the U.S.

The authors artfully tell the tale, bringing out more of some of the personal sides of the characters, and are able to weave in the continuing story from the previous volume with the further development of the overall saga. They also once again bring into play current events and science, adding relevance to the reader's experience. With the character and story development, to me, this volume was more enticing than even the intense W1CK 1!

For more information about the book, please visit http://www.facebook.com/wickbook and the related book launch blog post from Mr. Bunker, What if the Russians really are going to attack? What if WICK really happens?", and here you can see the reviews for the Kindle version of W1CK 2.

If you plan to, please purchase their book at Amazon.com on March 13, 2013!


Ironically, if the things in the W1CK series ever play out in real life similarly to the story, e-readers will end up being worthless, and thus I personally am not really a big proponent of them, but as a bonus, "W1CK 3: Exodus" is supposed to be available on March 13 for the Kindle as well.
