Hello Readers : )
I’m back with another review. This time I had the opportunity to read this amazing Sci-fi thriller by Massimo Marino.
Winner of PRG 2012 Reviewer’s Choice Award in the Sci-Fi Genre.
Dan Amenta wakes up one morning to discover the world has changed…the Apocalypse has arrived.
Death, destruction, and disaster are spreading around the globe. Yet Dan and his family remain untouched. He begins to fear they are the only three people left alive on Earth.
They are not.
Efforts to survive and make contact with others reveal disturbing truths about the human extermination. Dan finds Laura who discloses ever more. Her presence – a young, sexy, disruptive girl – adds questions about what is moral and ethical in this new reality.
Then supernatural experiences reported by other survivors force Dan to seek explanations from his own past. Memories of childhood hallucinations strike him with sledgehammer force, bringing him face-to-face with a secret millions of years old. Planet Earth is in the hands of an older power, one Dan never envisioned and dares not disobey…
“Even with the best of intentions, cruelty is just around the corner.”
First of all let me just say that the main reason why I enjoyed this book was because it wasn’t the overly done, end of the world novel we’re probably so tired of seeing or reading about. Don’t get me wrong, I love zombies just as much as the next gal, but honestly, everyone’s done it already. This story is original and different, which was incredibly refreshing.
As I read, there were times when I began to envision myself in the protagonist shoes and let’s just say it wasn’t very pleasant. I don’t think I could survive the kind of scenarios this family did. However, I really enjoyed reading about how they fought on and didn’t lose hope even though at times, things got really rough.
If you’re looking for something new that will grab your full attention, I highly recommend this read.
