After the Storm (After the Storm #1)
by Don Chase (Goodreads Author)
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.

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.

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.

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.
