After reading this book I had yo sit back for a moment and see and react to all that happened in it. There was so much, so many characters that did many wild and adventurous travels and actions for the good of mankind or to go further than their adversaries.

A 'cozy apocalypse' if there is such a category.

This is a very clean - I would rate it at age 10+ type book. (There is more violence and swearing on TV). While there is death and sadness, fighting, winning and a happy ending. There is no strong language, no gore, friendship is the strong emotion (romance, love is secondary).

Incredible read!

LOTR meets Apocalypse! Entertaining, uplifting, moral and action filled. This book will reach many with its message. Two thumbs up! I got a free copy of this book and chose to review it.

I won this book on the goodreads giveaway. While I am always pleased to win books, I am also pleased when I enjoy them. Sadly, this was not the case with this book.

Maybe I was expecting too much, but the premise of our world having to start all over was appealing to me. The characters were one sided to me. There was no reason given for the 'bad guy' to be doing what he was doing. And there were way too many of the hybrid monsters to deal with. It was just a mish mash of everything to me. Things
