NEW RELEASE : February 15th arder on amazon Now!
A century after a global nuclear war, eighteen-year-old Chelsea Thomas has spent her life living in fear of Newhome’s paramilitary Custodians, due to a prohibited rogue ability.
In the past week, her twin brother – a forager – has uncharacteristically run away from home and work after the mysterious death of a teammate. Something has also scared her normally unflappable father half to death, and, their family is threatened with eviction.
But her brother’s disappearance presents her with a long-sought after opportunity to escape Newhome, since only the foragers – all men – are allowed to leave the town. All she has to do is impersonate her brother long enough to make her escape while foraging out in the ruins.
But she never counted on the kindness of Ryan Hill, a forager new to the team. Nor on barbaric Skel attacking the team the moment she makes her escape. She has to choose between making good on her escape or saving Ryan and the others.
Twenty-two-year-old Ryan Hill made one mistake at his last place of employment, and that earned the wrath of his fellow workmates, and cost him all of his friends.
Alone and dejected, he begins a new job as a forager, expecting more of the same. But then he meets Chelsea, masquerading as her brother Brandon. And though he falls for her ruse, he sees in her a kindred spirit. Could he(she) spark in him the beginning of a true, genuine friendship that looks past the faults of the other?
* Impersonator is Book One in a new trilogy set in the world of Peter R Stone’s Forager Trilogy. Although it starts three years before the events in Forager, it is not a prequel.

Peter R Stone, an avid student of history, was reading books on Ancient Greece from the age of four.

A product of the Cold War Generation, Peter Stone studied the ramifications of a nuclear missile strike when he was in his senior year of high school, learning the effects of nuclear fallout and how to (hopefully) survive it. He has ever been drawn to post-apocalyptic and dystopian novels and films, and eagerly devoured The Day of the Triffids and John Christopher’s Tripod Trilogy when he was a child. He is also an avid fan of science fiction, and his favorite books include the Lensmen Series by E.E.Doc.Smith, anything by Alastair Reynolds, and the Evergence trilogy by Sean Williams.
Peter Stone graduated from Melbourne School of Ministries Bible College in 1988. He has been teaching Sunday School and playing the keyboard in church for over twenty-five years. His wife is from Japan and they have two wonderful children. He has worked in the same games company for over twenty years, but still does not comprehend why they expect him to work all day instead of playing games.
I really enjoyed reading the Forager Series.
This book was no exception.
This is a Post Forager Book.
It can be read as a stand alone .
You won’t feel like you’ve missed anything not reading the Series if you havent.
It jumps in and you kind of feel like your reading the Forager book 1 at first be a use if you’ve read it you know some of these things already.
That’s why I say you won’t miss out if you haven’t read the Forager Series to begin with. But I do recommend reading it.
The action starts faily early into the book.
Theirs not a time when I felt I needed to stop or put it down from hitting a dead spot where it got boring and your struggling to get past it to get back into the good stuff.
The character are well thought out.
They have their parts to play in the book and I think Mr. Stone accomplished that well.
You get to know the character well. I myself can’t keep reading a book if I ant get to know the main character or characters well enough to keep me interested.
I had no problems with that here.
It’s a very fast paced book and I liked it alot and can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
I was given this book for a honest review
