John B.'s Review
I was able to sink my teeth into this book and not put it down till I was finished with it. The plot is engaging as are the characters. Elliot finds himself facing a changed world after an asteroid strike devastates Earth. Adam is coming out of a bad relationship and is questioning his identity.
When the two meet in their struggle for survival they begin to learn about one another and they begin to shed their old skin and learn how to survive in this new world.
The relationship between Elliot and Adam had me rooting for them throughout the book. Dealing with the end of life as we know it and seeing two people coming together and the hope of something springing from it had me rooting for the home team of humanity.
The book is filled with thrills, moments where I found myself holding my breath. In the search for help they find a crazy dystopian leader of survivors that lends a plot twist of political and sociological twists to the plot.
Elliot through all of it hangs on to his humanity almost to a fault, yet it gave me pause to think of how I might react in a similar situation. If faced with the same ordeals could I be half of what he was; that would be something to strive for.
Adam is conflicted with who he is and battles back and forth within himself. He is in essence the everyday pragmatic man who know deep down who he is but doesn't admit it to himself till he is forced to come face to face with himself.
I was glad all three of the books were bundled into one, it allowed me to follow through the series. The characters were engaging, the story line good which all added to me liking this book.
Overall if you like SciFi that incorporates humanity, political twists, sociological experiments, and survival I would recommend this book hands down.
