The world as we know it is no more. A giant meteor hit the US five years ago, turning a good portion of it into a desolate wasteland. Between the meteor, the nuclear winter that followed and the rioting, it wiped out almost 95% of the population. The government went into hiding and left the remaining population to fend for itself for over two years.

Just finished reading After the Storm and can't wait for future books in the series. Plenty of action and a very good story. It follows the story of the leader Duncan and what he must go through to keep what were once his neighbors but now his followers alive. Sometimes this does not come without its problems, struggles and loss. Worth reading.

An asteroid collision has destroyed civilization as we know it, killing 95% of the world’s population in Don Chase’s post apocalyptic novel After the Storm Book One: Menotomy. A group of survivors, at its core lifelong friends, have built an organized cooperative of sorts in the rubble of the Boston suburb, Arlington, Massachusetts (Menotomy). While the Boston area has escaped complete physical destruction due to the location of the asteroid strikes, it has been decimated by the complete collaps ...more

Decent start, lagged in the middle, had a weak ending. The first person style of the book was annoying and unrealistic.

The first book in the After the Storm series is a breath of fresh air. It is set in post apocalyptic Boston and has the best elements of dystopian literature. Chase has found a way to turn his narrative into a conversation. Instead of a traditional narrator, who in this case could sound antiquated while looking back on the story, what this book has is a conversational tone that transports you into Chase's own space where he is sitting across from you, telling the story over some coffee or a beer ...more

A solid first book. I'm not a big first person book person, but I really enjoyed the story and the premise (although its a bit slow in the middle). The characters are engaging and I like generally like stories of survivial so it was something right in my wheel house. If you like the same kind of books I'd recomend this.
