Publisher's Summary

First the asteroid would come, slamming into the earth just north of the Montana border, followed by earthquakes, tsunamis, and unending night. And after that... Hell.
Astronomer Marty Chittenden is the first to recognize the approaching doom - a discovery that makes him a marked man.
Green Beret Jack Forrest knows the catastrophe is inevitable and begins stockpiling an abandoned missile silo with supplies while gathering together a small community of men, women, and children he prays can survive the apocalypse.
Then disaster strikes. In an instant the world they know ends forever, transformed into a nightmare realm of eternal darkness. Soon the few remaining humans are transformed as well, becoming savage things - raping, pillaging, and devouring their own.
And the time is approaching when Forrest and his people will have to leave their underground "Noah's Ark" to face a shattered world and the unspeakable terrors that dwell there - in desperate pursuit of one slim hope of survival … called Hawaii.

One of the best apocalypse books

This is a great story. Well written, suspenseful, logical, and when it's over, you're hoping there will be a sequel. There are many different interesting elements in the story that always keep your interest. The characters are interesting and the situations they are involved in are reasonable and not far-fetched. Highly recommended.

Favorite find in a while

Any additional comments?

I am a big Thomas Koloniar fan. I’ve been reading his Target America sniper novels for a few years now (Scott McEwen is credited before him on those, but reading CR, I have to wonder if Thomas Koloniar isn’t really the guy at t the wheel).

I don’t know what to say without a rote summary of the plot. I know nothing of the this genre. I hate apocalypse fiction that isn’t titled The Stand. Cannibal Reign doesn’t really try to be any of those things. It’s kind of a military book and a melodrama mixed with an action adventure story. Not to mention being either very well researched and/or deliriously well thought out.

How Thomas Koloniar isn’t a bigger star as an author is a bit weird to me. I wish he had other novels I could get into without Scott McEwen’s brand (again, reading this book, it’s hard to think that’s all McEwen contributes). Which I don’t mean as an insult to McEwen. Just speculation.

It’s a very frank book in terms of the horrors of what would probably happen after a comet impact with the earth. Obvious cannibalism. But also, perhaps more disturbing, women instantly become a commodity. That was hardest part for me. Though Thomas Koloniar does leave most of that to the imagination. My one quibble with the writing are scenes where one rape victim, a gay woman, makes flirty sexual jokes with her dude buddy very soon after being “saved.” That struck a VERY wrong note. I’m sure that many people will view some of the portrayal of gender roles as being somewhat sexist. But for the most part, I would argue otherwise. But that’s neither here nor there. That’s won’t sway you one way or the other to liking or disliking CR. You would or wouldn’t have liked it anyway.

Generally it’s a tense, fun, thrilling and a challenging piece of pop story telling.

Dig in! (Pun acknowledged.)
