AAfter the bombs rain down, the entire world is an open wound; it is in those bleeding years that William Fox becomes a man. William flees with his family to Magnolia, a farm in Tennessee, while America descends into madness, anarchy, and death. With the aid of elite Special Forces units, Magnolia emerges as beacon of hope and stability. But evil is hungry and relentless. A new threat stalks the Earth. To save his people, and perhaps all of humanity, William must be more than a lethal soldier; he must become a hero. Objects of Wrath is the first book in a saga spanning four generations. In a depleted and peeled land savaged by The Fall, William struggles to keep the faith and light burning within him. Sometimes, the only way to defeat darkness is to become it. “For the few who do what it takes, the end of the world will be a new beginning ... With OBJECTS OF WRATH, Sean Smith offers a fresh take in survivalist fiction." Acclaimed author Craig DeLouie “OBJECTS OF WRATH is disturbing. The end of the world shouldn't be so plausible. Sean Smith's new book squats in the heart twisting intersection of "Full Metal Jacket" and Cormac McCarthy's "The Road".” Author James Crawford...

    War and GodI hesitated to give this a five star rating because it is the first in a series. Also because some won't like it due to its unrepentant Christian theme, but dog gone it, it is good! Reminded me Zane Gray and W.E.B Griffith, with a little Frank Parretti, (sp?) mixed in. I think it's great that Sean wrote it without worrying about those who wouldn't like it because it wasn't PC. Can't wait to read the next one! Good Job Sean!

    I am truly impressed. The writing is excellent, colorful, sharp. This writer comes out of nowhere for me and I really like him. The story is of survival after a nuclear holocaust. It has been done many times before, but this tale focuses more on the characters, which are human and memorable. I will look for more from this author and hope that the quality continues.I'd like to share a couple tidbits of his writing that impressed me so much. Perhaps it will not be as moving without the context of the rest of the story, but it might...The insane charge caught them off guard as we cut, shot, and bludgeoned our way through them. I had seen Gunny in action and been trained by him and knew how quick and deadly he was. But Chili was an artist in his prime form painting death with deft strokes. With perfect economy of motion he dispatched a seemingly unending supply of enemies in an unrivaled masterpiece of destruction.I hacked and shot behind him through the smoke and despite the chaos I marveled at Chili’s artwork. His canvas was the battlefield and he was the Rembrandt of the night painting darkness, not light. He was the Picasso of the blade, leaving twisted corpses in his wake; his hands and feet brushes that flicked out almost delicately, precisely, colorfully.Crystal cleaned and dressed my wounds at our table. I was upset that she had not evacuated, but there was nothing I could do. “You’re secretly glad I stayed behind,” she said.“I’m glad to see you of course,” I said carefully. “But I wish you’d left, it’s too risky. I need to know you are safe, you and the baby.”“We’re in this together,” she said. “I don’t want to live without you. If you die, I’ll die too.”“I wish you hadn’t done that Crystal,” I sighed and kissed her hand “but, it’s done.”“I’d rather spend another night with you than a lifetime without you. I’d trade in all my tomorrows alone for today by your side.”What could I say to that? I was defenseless.Hopefully those are not big spoilers. Get the book.

    More recently I have been in to viral PA fiction - zombies, plagues and the like. So to pick up Smith's "Objects of Wrath" was like a breath of fresh air in a genre which is chock full at the moment of cannibal infestations. Objects is a steady and sensible tome along the lines of Alas Babylon, but with far more vigour.Whilst Alas Babylon was written on a leash, primarily I guess due to the era it was written in, Objects has no such restraints.It is more a coming of age story than anything; our protagonist is a young boy when the Fall occurs and he grows up under the shadow and shield of his father and grandfather, both military men. We experience his maturing and hardening, if only on the exterior. Where Babylon fails to get in to the guts of the conflict, Objects delves deep in to the heart of military matters, and Smith achieves a great balance between character development and pace of story.There are no redundant scenes; no castaway roles. No 'where did that guy go' or 'what the hell was the point of that'. It was a fast-paced and enjoyable read that I would recommend to any and all fans of the TEOTWAWKI / SHTF genres.

    I was not too sure about this book. But there was multiple ups and downs throughout the whole entire novel. I found myself feeling like the main character was my friend! I fell in love with the story, it also got me thinking about what would happen and how I would react if something crazy happens in the world. Anyone and everyone should read the story.

    I had no idea when I opened this book that Objects of Wrath is a time machine. In the first few pages it transported me back to my childhood - a time when I prowled my local used bookstores for everything and anything about the nuclear apocalypse (OK, I didn't say I was a normal kid). Given that I grew up in the 1980's, that was about half of what was on the shelves at the time and I loved every second of it. As the 1990's came, however, and the specter of nuclear oblivion abated some, this type of fiction died out for the most part and I was left to reread what was already available.In the last few years there has a been a resurgence of this kind of story, but the threats have morphed into fears about plagues and EMP attacks rather than atomic catastophes. Furthermore, the stories have been more in line with the person-centered, small scale stories the likes of Alas, Babylon or The Road than sprawling sagas of books like The Survivalist, and The Wingman. While there is nothing wrong with this, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Objects of Wrath follows closer in the footsteps of the more epic series of old where there was less focus on the nuts and bolts of survival and more on the human challenges facing the survivors. At the same time, this book gives these types of stories a necessary update by injecting a certain pathos into it that will resonate with fans of more recent books.Objects of Wrath is told by William Fox, who is only a young boy when an extremist's miscalculation causes a worldwide nuclear exchange. Taken to his grandfather's estate in Magnolia, Tennessee, both he and the compound grow together while facing many challenges (both tangible and existential) along the way. Eventually, the bastion of humanity and William himself must face down a ravaging disease and an army intent on destroying what they have built without becoming the evil they wish to defeat.From the explosive beginning to the last page, the prose switches from enthralling and poignant to intense and gripping without feeling forced or contrived. Smith weaves a delicate balance of intimacy and an overall worldview that allows us to get to know the characters while still understanding the overall world they live in. The dialogue between characters and the discussions they have feel real, and William's inner dialogue is outstanding. Though at a few times it goes slightly overboard, the emotions feel real, and the characters (by and large) reflect that with authenticity of their own. Conversely, the action is very entertaining and works as a counterpoint to the more sedate sections of the book. Again, Smith strikes a balance that neither bludgeons the reader with constant action, nor puts them to sleep with overwrought discussions.My caveats are generally a matter of taste. Some might find the discussions of God, faith, morality, and similar topics a little overblown or high-minded. Some may also find the largely unwavering conviction about Magnolia's moral superiority a bit too pat, and indeed, some of the actions they take would be -if perpetrated by the enemy- viewed as dastardly. For me, this worked, however, and showed the inherent human need to rationalize survival in spite of our upbringing as moral beings. Often times, evil is a matter of perception and we humans are often terribly hypocritical in this realm. As I said, some may not be able to get beyond the implicit hypocrisy of it. Lastly, some readers may find the nature of the threat facing Magnolia (despite the multi-racial nature of the compound) a bit troubling considering it is comprised of one ethnic group. Personally, this did not bother me and I got no undertones of prejudice in the text, but some may find it offensive.There will be readers who find the old-school high adventure tone of continued victory over perilous odds time and again, and survival despite some clearly "dumb moves" on the part of the main character too hard to swallow. Again, this felt like a nod to the books of yesteryear, and the narrow escapes were not so outlandish that I could not suspend disbelief enough to enjoy the story. Lastly, if you are a military enthusiast, you'll notice that the author did some good research, but definitely has a few misfires that a seasoned reader is going to catch. For 95% of readers though, they will not notice a thing.I truly enjoyed this book, and it probably one of the best reads I've had so far this year. I would unabashedly recommend it to fans of 1980's adventure fiction, old-school nuclear war adventure novels, or simply a rip-roaring tale of survival. Even better, it is the first in a series of three books, and personally, I can't wait for the next two to come out.

    I haven’t read a good military novel in a long time, but I used to enjoy a lot of rock and roll recon fiction set in WWII and Vietnam back in my twenties. Objects of Wrath by Sean T Smith takes me back. – in a good way!In Objects of Wrath, Smith combines good military storytelling with apocalyptic fiction. I’ll say right off the bat that he avoids the typical zombie and/or alien scenarios. In fact, one of his characters makes a point of saying that they will not tolerate zombies. Instead, he gives us the most likely end of the world scenario available to us: man wipes out man. There’s a little bit of everything in here: nukes, biological warfare, cannibals, slavers, psychotic despots, and people who are generally desperate and willing to do whatever it takes to survive.All of this provides the background for a truly engrossing coming of age story about a boy who must discover what it means to be a light against the darkness in post-apocalyptic America. Smith gives us a fully fleshed protagonist with deep flaws and character traits we can empathize with. Will Fox’s journey to manhood includes a spiritual journey filled with fear, faith, doubt, rage, loss and love, as he struggles to make sense of a world of evil and a faithful and good God. The other characters are also well-painted. You feel a genuinely sense of camaraderie with Fox’s friends, family and fellow soldiers. The family dynamic is particularly compelling. The faith and spirituality of the book is grounded and integral to the story.There is a fair amount of profanity and innuendo in the novel, though not nearly as much as one typically reads in a military novel. Mostly pulpit cussing [the sort of words your minister can say from the pulpit but are otherwise deemed inappropriate] and S-bombs. The novel also deals frankly with the horrors of war, sex trafficking and the evils men are capable of when unrestricted by the dispensation of government. It never deals with any of these things, including battlefield violence, in an overly or gratuitously graphic way.My only complaint is how abruptly the book ends. It kind of slaps you in the face when you’re engrossed in a book like that. All in all, it’s an excellently written and plotted book, giving careful attention a realistic end of the world scenario while dealing with issues such as God’s goodness in the face of man’s depravity. I heartily recommend this to anyone who enjoys military or apocalyptic fiction but is a bit tired of zombies.I received an advance reader copy of Objects of Wrath for a fair and honest review, but the book is available now for the rest of you.

    This is a mini Epic. The book could have been twice the length with the amount of story it crammed in and it only missed out on 5 stars because it wasn't longer! The action is non stop. I've been choosing a lot of zombie books of late and this was a nice transition into another post apocalyptic world which was scarily plausible. Can't wait more!

    This is the first book I've read by this author and let me say, it ripped my guts out. I could not put the book down. I kept turning page after page, watching for the catastrophe, explosion, darkness, you name it. I grew with the character as themes of philosophy, religion, faith, survival, and evil wove it's way through the pages. It was wonderful. I can't wait for the next one!

    Great readEnjoyed the character development and plotting. One small caveat - spoiler alert - it seemed that the young girl they rescued should have been identified, but they seemed to just drop her character. Otherwise I enjoyed this and finished in one reading.

    From the time the bombs drop, to the time a mysterious illness called Tarantula spreads without mercy, Objects of Wrath is a nonstop action-pumping, bomb-blasting, sharp-shooting adventure into the ravaged landscape of World War III.

    I truly enjoyed this book! I do love survivalist fiction, just not so crazy with all the zombies take over stuff. This was a different take, and a lot closer to realism. I found it fast paced, compelling and will read the next in the series with anticipation.

    Don't get me wrong this book was good but in my opinion it had a few ups and lot of downs. The thing which pissed me off was cheesy love and wedding which felt rushed and also unnatural and also I found it hard to believe the stuffs & abilities done my the main character with his background before the countries went into the war (would be more believable if it's a fantasy story or if it's upto a acceptable level).The story pace was also seemed off to me because some important areas were skipped and other hand sometimes it was very slow too.I picked up the book to read a good survival story but in the end I was very disappointed.

    One of the more interesting coming of age books set in the EOTWAWKI. The country is nuked, leaving only sporadic areas of habitable land. William and his father make it to his grandfather's house and join up with the Colonel's remaining soldiers to survive. I did like how the book spans the better part of William's life from boyhood to the birth of his own child. This book was all about the characters, interweaved into an entertaining story and culminating with a fight against a two-fold enemy, the smaller of which was surprisingly creative. (Didn't hurt that I had seen it in a nature documentary, and was quite brutal to imagine in people.)

    great story, but..... the general story line is amazing, it drew me in. Unfortunately there is only 40% amazing story, the rest of this book is preaching and praying and bible thumping.
