The second produced story in the Apex Trilogy, The Americans is a "sidequel" to Book One, Dead Mech. The stories take place simultaneously, and it doesn't really matter which one you read first. Fans of Dead Mech will revel in the imaginative future technology, genetic manipulation, a melting pot filled with monster bouillabaisse, political infighting and some of the most refreshingly creative concepts. Jake Bible takes the Apex Trilogy to an entirely new level, and you will not be disappointed...more

Book 2 of the Apex trilogy by Jake Bible, while set in the same timeframe, introduces an entire new set of characters. Book 1 was set in America after the fallout of several nuclear strikes to rid the continent of the zombies. Book 2 takes place in Europe and Americans no longer have a home. They are visitors in every foreign land but must set up new places to live amongst those that would rather not have them there at all. Battling the zombies and the wars that followed after left everyone more...more

A very different book from "Dead Mech," but you still have the great characters, non-stop action, and imaginative technologies. I finished it in 2 days (work interrupted me!) And immediately downloaded the final book in the trilogy.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the other two in the trilogy. I liked the new characters well enough, but the over-reliance on "BC" was really tiring. I get it; it's a very cool concept. But jeez. It just seemed extremely convenient to me. Bible did a fairly admirable job convincing me that they were still in danger, despite basically *everyone* being a freaking superhero, but it just got old. Also, the entire time I was wondering about the people in Dead Mech. I get the side-sequel concept,...more

Man, am I behind in the times. I read DEAD MECH back in March of 2011 and loved every second of it. But, work, life and a crap ton of review requests kept me from reading it's "sidequel", The Americans, until now. Yes, that read sidequel...meaning it takes place at the same time as DEAD MECH , but with different characters and in a different location.

The Americans continues with the author's tradition of colorful language, fun and engaging dialogue and action....lots and lots of action. The char...more

Brilliant book, I have read Jake Bibles other Apex Trilogy book - Dead Mech - and thoroughly enjoyed it, and have been waiting for the next part of the trilogy. This book did not disappoint!

I downloaded the sample (as I always do with books nowadays, even when I know I am going to buy them!) and after the first couple of pages I was absolutely hooked, immediately bought the book (I tend to use samples as a gauge to whether I *need* to read the book *OMGRIGHTNOW* or it can go in my to read pile)....more

Don't bother. The writing is pretty subpar.

The story's premise, in general, is okayish, but starting at a third of the way in, the writing quality just dissolves, leaving behind a couple of not well thought out ideas and an adolescent's idea of an Awesome Story[tm] that grates on you if you've got enough of a brain to sneer.

If you're into it, you could have a lot of fun comparing list of writing fallacies and the less than good tropes from TVTropes and have a blast. As it is, I've just pulled th...more
