Another end of the world novella. Fortunately there are no zombies but there is something just as bad. James Benton wakes up to find he may be the last human on earth. In fact, considering birds, trees, and even grass has disappeared, he may be the last living thing on earth.

End of the world tales are a dime a dozen any more. This one starts out differently and holds the promise of adding something new to the genre. Unfortunately that is not to be the case. The plot becomes fairly predictable quickly and the author's somewhat awkward writing style doesn't help. The result is a story that feels more like a movie treatment, or at best, a preview of a book series. Not something I can recommend, even at the low Kindle price.
