The McClane Apocalypse: Book 1, by Kate Morris

This is not really a disaster book, and there’s no trace of ‘apocalypse’ in Book 1.  Really, it’s a romance novel, and a very vague disaster scenario serves the purpose of bringing a few strangers together at the beginning.  From there, … Continue reading

Anarchy Rising (The Survivalist, book 2), by Arthur T. Bradley

5 stars My favourite character so far is Samantha, and the dry wit repartee between her and Tanner had me laughing out loud.  There are more extreme personalities in this instalment, but most of the time it seems to reinforce … Continue reading

Frontier Justice (The Survivalist, book 1), by Arthur T. Bradley

5 stars The first thing I noticed about this novel is that it is well written in terms of compiling the English language.  I found no errors at all – apart from a strange overabundance of commas in a couple … Continue reading

The Atlantis Plague: A Thriller (The Origin Mystery, Book 2), by A.G. Riddle

Reviewed at Amazon on 29 August, 2014 (4 stars): This second book was as full of twists and turns as the first. I’ve realised that the thing I think is most unique to Riddle is his willingness to write his … Continue reading

Obliterated 2: Violent Nature, by C.J. Hall

Commented at Amazon, 20 April 2014: Not an ordinary post-apocalypse novel context; nor is it written from any of the usual extreme perspectives of prepper, gun-toter or ignoramus. And, to my great approval, no zombies!The characters develop well over time, … Continue reading

Mind Plague, by Kyle Kirkland

Commented at Amazon, 19 November 2013: I very much liked this story; so much that I’ve already bought another Kirkland ebook. The characters are fallible/believable and the story is interesting, with enough twists and turns to keep things interesting – … Continue reading

Random Survival, by Ray Wenck

The Prepper Part 1: The Collapse, by Karl A.D. Brown

Commented at Amazon, 30 October 2013: I thought this book started well enough, but then it changed from a story to be more of a blog on gun lobbying, political conspiracy and greed, and pointing the finger at whoever is … Continue reading

This is England, by Barry Budden

Homeostasis Lost, by Kyan Yauchler

Asteroid Aftermath (Post Apocalyptic Survival Book 2), by Owen Brick

Amazon Review, 18 September 2013: Very short, just like ‘book’ 1 – but this time I was prepared, having checked the Amazon product page for length. An hour or so of entertainment is well worth the $2.99 price. Way cheaper … Continue reading

Fatal Impact (Post-Apocalyptic Survival Book 1), by Owen Brick

Amazon Review, 18 September, 2013: Very short. More like a condensed Readers’ Digest version than stand-alone book length. But to be fair, it was only $0.99, and it does state an estimated 50 pages length on the product page. I … Continue reading

Armageddon, by Brian Clarke

Reviewed at Amazon, 15 September 2013  I found this book very frustrating because the story itself has so much potential, but it needed to be thoroughly edited before publication. It’s written like a first-year university lecture series, dumbed down for … Continue reading

Ark: Asteriod Impact (Ark Asteriod Trilogy), by Thomas A. Cahill

Amazon Comment:  September 15, 2013 I really liked the story, but it lacks character development. Apart from the alpha males, we know very little about anybody – and therefore it’s impossible to care about them at all. The alphas are … Continue reading
