Publisher's Summary

In upstate Idaho, Ness Hook is run out of his mom's house by his bullying brother Shawn. In Redding, California, Tristan Carter is graduating college, but with no job and no prospects, she'll have to move back in with her parents. Then the world ends. After Ness discovers his best friend dead of disease, Shawn takes their family to the mountains to wait out the plague.
As Tristan's parents fall sick, she's left to care for her younger brother, Alden. Both sets of siblings dig in for the long haul. Humanity is reduced to splinters. And then the creatures who sent the virus appear in the sky. Flushed from the mountains, Shawn and Ness join a tribe at a nuclear power plant, where they plan to launch a guerrilla war against the invaders. In California, Tristan and Alden are taken prisoner. Separated from her brother, Tristan crosses the ruins of America to track him down. She will stop at nothing to get Alden back - but her fellow survivors prove even more dangerous than the monsters who broke the world.

A let down from Book 1

What did you like best about Melt Down? What did you like least?

I really wanted to like this - Book 1 was exceptional, but sadly this compared poorly to the first book, and I was disappointed by the plot. Whilst the narration and performance by Ray Chase was first class, the story seemed to take a diversion to Camelot / Westoros which was a step too far. Like a good film the author should sweep the reader along in a willing suspension of disbelief , sadly this scenario was a complete disconnect from everything preceding it.


Has Melt Down turned you off from other books in this genre?

Perhaps the author was under pressure for a quick follow up to Book 1, this has made me think carefully about Book 3.


Any additional comments?

I would caution listeners to only use spare credits on this episode in the series, in retrospect I kind of wish the series had been limited to Book 1, it was that good, and this struggled to reach 60% of the heights reached in the first book.

Not a sequel

This is not an actual sequel to the first book in the series. It runs concurrent with the original so anybody hoping for a continuation of the story will be seriously disappointed..
