“This,” he says, “is all yours.”
I step into the room. Weapons and equipment are hanging from every nook and cranny. It’s a goldmine of war goodies. Chris, however, is holding up a single object. A rifle. It’s brand new, it’s sleek, and it’s awesome. He hands it to me.
It’s mine.
I curl my fingers around the weapon, the metal cool against my skin. I test the weight. Not too heavy. Just right for my size. A scope is mounted on top of the weapon.
“I’ve really needed one of these,” I say.
“You’re a great shot without optics,” he replies. “With it you’ll be unstoppable.” He hoists a backpack. “I packed this for you. It’s got a new uniform, supplies, equipment. Upgraded radio, night vision goggles.” He grins and pulls out a small handgun. “There are some nice toys in here, too. This one’s just your size.”
“You packed this for me?” I asked, touched. Because with all of the things he’s got to worry about, it’s beyond sweet that he would go to the trouble of getting supplies together for me. “Thank you.”
“My pleasure.” He drapes one strap of the pack over my shoulder. “You’re really in the military now, Cassie. It suits you.”
“I don’t know.” I gaze up at his sure, handsome face. “Does it?”
“I wouldn’t lie to you.” He tucks a loose strand of hair behind my ear. “There’s not a lot of people that would adjust to this sort of lifestyle so well. You’ve got a gift.”
“I’ve got a great leader,” I reply, standing on my tiptoes. “You.”
He laughs softly, placing one hand on each side of my waist.
“Is that so?” he asks.
“Yes.” I kiss his cheek. “Thank you, Chris. For everything.”
“Don’t thank me yet.”

The Collapse Series is turning out to be one of the best series I've read in a long time.
After the sudden cliffhanger of State of Chaos, Cassie is yet again, in the think of it - only this time the danger has escalated. With a solid group of friends around her Cassie perseveres through the EMP strike. Chris is mouth watering; steady and calm and a great source of motivation and determination for Cassie as they both face new challenges.
This story takes you up and down with a lot of major twists and turns. I read the book in a day, again, which I tried not to do because now I have to wait even longer for book 4.
An excellent read from Miss Lane and I strongly recommend it.
