If you want to read something unique, I think it would be a severe injustice to the literary realm if I didnt suggest LuckSon to you.

When I read the blurb I thought it seemed a little bit repetitive. It reminded me of the Will Smith movie, I Am Legend, where Will Smith is living alone for years, fighting the zombie-like creatures as he searches for a cure to the diseasecreated by humans from a failed cure to cancerthats destroyed over half of humanity. Very similar yet different on many

This book pulled me in right from the start. Mr. Nanto is a talented storyteller and has constructed an intriguing world of dreams, and an apocalyptic future where the hero is basically the last man standing. The characters are engaging and easily relatable, from the cute Stacy who survives in the real world due to intervention by the hero, LuckSon, in the dream world. The third important character, Mrs. Whitting, is a gun-toting, part Native American, elderly dream walker. All three are well ...more

This book completely captivated me! The characters are so real, Daniel is so good at character development, you get a feel for a character quickly and can relate to them. Loved the story line! Loved the characters! Loved the glimpses from the zombie leaders mind. Loved Mrs. Witting's t-shirts! Did I mention I loved the character development! Loved the sweet romance, reminded my of falling in love with my husband of 25 years. Loved the ending! I wanted to start over the minute I finished. Can't ...more

I have a confession to make... I am a serial book beginner. I'll gladly spend hours in book stores. Reading backs of books, the little blurbs in the inside front cover; truth be told they kind of give me a high as I picture the potential adventure I'm holding in my hands. Yet the same thing always seems to happen; after hours of deliberation, I take home my little prize, sit down when I have some time, aaand... never end up finishing that darn book.

Well, reading Daniel Nanto's "Luckson" finally

I really enjoyed this story. I am not one who usually goes for zombie stories but this one gives an interesting explanation as to how zombies might come about. A pandemic and a disease to end all disease...a GOOD story. I felt like the story had a little bit of legend, science-fiction, action and not too much of any of them. The concept of dreamwalking is a cool one and it was well thought out and explained and woven into the story so that it didn't distract from it. I liked each of the ...more

Received the book last night in the mail....thank you Daniel for the complimentary copy. I dove into the story and couldn't put it down until I finished it just a few minutes ago. Thank you, thank you! I haven't read anything recently that has engaged me so completely. The story was brilliant! Fun! Unique in every way. I absolutely love the Native American mysticism element mixed in with time travel and zombies. I am dying right now to read more!

I really enjoy the time travel loop that can happen. I also really enjoy the ending and the characters. what I do not enjoy is the length. honestly the story could be half the length and still have the impact. there is a lot of telling versus showing in this story.

Loved the book. It is an easy read and kept me in suspense the entire time! The ending was definitely a surprise twist!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Let me start out with the things I (surprisingly) liked about this book. It was not what I expected it to be, and I was so grateful for that. I was fully prepared for a head on zombie apocalypse The Walking Dead sort of thing. But, seeing as the goal of this book was to STOP the 'every sickness every plague' virus called the Dark Death that caused the epidemic, there was barely any zombie

LuckSon is an interesting twist on the modern Zombie craze where the two heroes are able to manipulate the projected events of the destroyed future by communicating through dreams, separated by 50 years of turmoil.

LuckSon is a young man trying to survive in the zombified future. The last man alive. In his scavenging he comes across a cute yellow house, where 50 years before Ms. Whitting, a gun-toting American Indian and owner of the house, brought on a renter, Stacy. Stacy is a local college

An enjoyable read and pleasantly NOT what I expected. The characters were believable and real, and LuckSon, in particular, pulled t my heart strings.

An admirable first effort for this author, and I look forward to more.

This first book from Nanto grabs you quickly . It was a page-turner all the way to the end. Unique viewpoints from minor characters provides more clues but still keeps you guessing. Can't wait for the next book!
