I wait longingly for each book of this series

I love all of Thomas A Watson's works. He drags you into the characters lives as if you were with friends. All of his series are great in their right but l love these characters, these smart boys.

Another great story

I have read all of Thomas A. Watson's books. This world he has created is just as great as the other's. Thomas has a way of writing characters who you would love to know. Ian and Lance, along with the girls are amazing. The parents are just as straightforward as their children. The deeds are things I would never have thought of. If the world came to an end I would be screwed without people like Ian and Lance. This is a great story and I don't know how I'll survive until the ne

Great read

Another book from Mr. Watson I'm glad I spent money on. You care about the people in the story and there is plenty of action to keep you interested. My only regret is I'll have to wait for the next in the series. Well done Mr. Watson!

What a great book! Another stellar addition to the 'Forsaken World' series!

As Lance and Ian continue to fortify their home with the help of the girls, their parents have finally reached the continental United States. They are embarking on their own journey to get to their sons and reunite with all of their children.

The characters are just as vivid as the first two books of this series, and the humor shines through even the darkest situations. With non-stop action and challenging obstacles, the c

I'm very happy that there was more focus on the parents in this book and it rather saved it for me. I get weary of the kids, the constant drum beating of the superboys and their genius. There is absolutely no way that I can see that a 20 something woman would have any romantic interest in a 13-14 year old boy (except in his fantasy). The journey of the parents and what it took to survive was far more interesting. I really liked the camaraderie of these old friends and it made the ending that muc ...more

OK Yesterday I finally got down to read the rest of the book, I started a few days ago, but was always distracted by something so never got more than two pages in, and! Can't believe he ended the book there!!! %&£^%*&£!! The BEST book of all Thomas A Watson's I would say!! I didn't get more than one hour of sleep this morning, I read through the night, just couldn't put the book down, it was so good! Absolutely loved this one! A MUST Read! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED x 10000000000!!!

Awesome book, awesome story and awesome characters. I left a review on the first book, it was a very good start to this series. The only problem I had was how long it took for the next book. I started the first book again on Saturday and finished all three that are out today. I hope the next one is coming soon because"I CAN'T WAIT"!!!!!

Oh my god I freaking love this series!

This is one of the best dystopian books out there friends and you will love it as I have. The ending of this book will leave you speechless, stunned and on the edge of your seat. I've read all of Thomas A Watsons books and this is one of his best.

That was once again, hell of a ride. I've never read a book while watching how close I am to the story ending...until this book. I highly recommend this book, this series, and this author!
