Publisher's Summary

Book One in The Perseid Collapse Series.
Alex Fletcher is back, in the epic post-apocalyptic sequel to The Jakarta Pandemic.
2019. Six years after the Jakarta Pandemic “decimated” the world's population; life is back to normal for the Fletchers and most Americans. The United States stands at the brink of a complete domestic and international resurgence, with stories of confidence and prosperity dominating the headlines. Appearances can be deceiving.
An undercurrent of paranoia and fear still runs strong below the surface; the collective angst spawned by 28 million American deaths forever stamped into population's psyche. Suppressed memories of helplessness and desperation, anger and jealousy - all of it lurks in the shadows, waiting to be released.
On August 19, 2019, an inconceivable “event” will unleash a darkness over the United States. A human darkness with a vast appetite for chaos and violence.
Alex Fletcher will wake to this new world, thrown headfirst into an impossible journey. His skills and preparations will be put to the ultimate test, in a brutally hostile landscape, where the forged bonds of friendship and family remain the only true constant.

Before buying I read the reviews on page one. Everyone was upset about the book having a cliff hanger, so I thought I will be prepared for that. I never made it to the end, had no desire to. Digging deeper into the reviews, where the Jakarta fans regulated the honest reviews by going unhelpful, I have discovered what a prepper is. There is no story here. Some have complained about taking a whole book to get to Boston. It is easy to see early on why. The father in the story is the expert on everything. He tells everyone what, how and when to do things. For example he tells his son, take the knife out of the outer left pocket and ... I believe we were also told where he bought the knife, it's shape and size, and what it is used for.

In the beginning they are in a sailboat and we are told everything about this boat. I thought, alright the author is showing off his knowledge on sailboats, when they get to land, surely it will improve. If anything it got worse. Every step is explained, literally every foot step.

I am not a fan of the narrator, but I am not sure he really had anything to work with.

Good for its type

I enjoyed the differing scenarios.
Good storyline, too many characters towards the end, but closes with a cliff hanger.
Got to get book 2 now!
