Micah has been home for two weeks and feels as if he has changed one prison for another.  The only constant has been Eli, but even that is not the same.  Unable to handle all the changes, Micah begins to wish he and Eli was still on their own.

Plunder is the second story in the Spoils of War series and readers need to know that it is necessary to read the first book before starting this one.  Plunder starts two weeks after the end of the first story.  Once again the author pulled me into the world in which these men lived.  This world is not a gentle one, but one filled with violence in one form or the other.  Unfortunately, some of this violence continues to find its way to Micah. 

Micah is the type of character that readers will want to take care of.  He is a gentle soul yet, as you read, you will soon find out that Micah has many hidden layers.  I was surprised by the direction in which the author took this character and did not see any of this coming.  Eli was also a bit of a surprise.  The life he gave up in order to save Micah was one of utmost privilege, yet readers can tell right from the start that Eli would not change a thing, although there were a couple of times that I wanted to smack him.

Plunder is full of action from the start and I found myself unable to put the book down.  More than once I was brought close to tears by the events the two men found themselves in.  Fans of the first book are sure to love this one, yet should be aware that while the violence is not as intense as what was found in the first book, it is there.
