Publisher's Summary

This is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller set in America at the beginning of a socioeconomic collapse. Although an innocent casualty of the chaos, one young man must discover his inner strength and defiant courage as he comes of age learning how to survive in the wasteland of failing services, unemployment, and violence.
With the economy in free fall, the government crippled by indecision, the streets taken over by new political parties, and the fragile institutions of civilization crumbling, a young man finds himself homeless and alone on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., facing certain death unless he can master survival skills he never imagined needing. Fending off violent citizens in an urban landscape that is gradually sliding into looting and mayhem, the protagonist emerges as an ultimate force of justice in a lawless land.
This compelling, fast-paced novel pulls readers in and lets them experience first-hand what life in the United States will be like as its teetering society begins to fall.

It was OK.

The story was alright. The main character seems to have a problem with white conservatives. Every bad guy fits this profile and he seems to get mad whenever he comes across one.
Also the narrator drove me crazy. He makes the characters all sound like John Wayne.

Could have been Great

The story is like something written by pre-teen boys dreaming about what they would do after the end of the world, which is fight crime, apparently. Completely unrealistic and offering very little in the way of gritty realism that us fans of the apocalypse genre enjoy.

The characters never use contractions in their dialog. So, aside from being solid and complete stereotypes, they sound like idiotic robots or foreigners the whole time.

I've read all the apocalypse books, and if you love them like I do, save this one for the very last or don't bother at all. It's only saving grace was it's length, a short 8 hours. Also it gives me hope that anyone can be a writer. I won't be continuing on with the series.
