I wasted precious hours reading this in the vain hope that it would get better, sadly it got worse and worse so ok the 'bad' guys got their comeuppance it was still a very painful read I,m kicking myself for not putting this down sooner.

A man made bug was released that caused a plague to decimate the world. The story starts with trophy wife Cassie Morgan and soldier Rick Carter trying to get to his friends house. They meet people, both good and bad, children that they protect, and situations that are tough to get through.

I really enjoyed this series. I like a good post apocalyptic story and I quickly fell into this one. Cassie doesn’t seem like one that will survive but she definitely surprised me. Rick was a typical soldier b

This is a great series!
It gives you the best and the worst of mankind after cataclysmic events occur, changing our future path. As the survivors struggle with life and death situations in a daily basis, the author takes the reader through the entire range of human behaviour and emotions. Some rise above, and some of her characters hit the bottom.
The stories are realistic (in light of an apocalyptic event), and both frightening and heartening at the same time.
The continuing thread through the ent

Great Read

Plague kills most of the population and this story follows different survivors whose life’s twist and intwine with each other.

Great character building. All the characters have their own strong elements about them whether bad or good.

This is very well written, I honestly found it hard to put down.

The story spreads over 3 years which is really interesting as it sets out how the communities have survived.

Only one query - how come the women haven’t ended up pregnant. Such as Monica and

Somehow the only person smart enough to have a weapon is an evil psychotic woman. Even the soldier, Rick, doesn’t look for ways to make a weapon once his gun is out of bullets. He is rather a weak character. Only the women in this book have any backbone. The ending was satisfying in that the survivors carry on. Strangely enough petrol still has a spark after 3 years. Maybe it was too much work for the author to think of alternative transportation.

This is my first time reading this author and she has written a fast-paced page-turner. The plot is a good one and it’s well written. The characters have depth and some great dialogue. If this is your genre of books to read then grab this one, you shall not be disappointed!

Good entertaining story featuring strong female characters including one memorable villianess. The characters are woven into the story and have you cheering for or against them throughout. Story has a good start, middle, and ending. Was a fun read all the way through.

Decent story

I’ve read many better though. It’s in England so many of the words/phrases are unfamiliar. Some of the storylines are improbable as well. For instance...fighting over gas/petrol that is 3 years old. Without stabilizing gas won’t last even half that long. The characters are interesting and a few grabbed my attention enough for me to finish reading the series.

I hate to leave this review because the plot of this book looked so good.. but..

This book has so many errors. It screams 'need an editor'. The errors are big ones too like, 'the bacteria make contact with her skin' and 'his eyes are bleared'. I am not super strict on grammar but this book just had too many problems. DNF'd it. :(

Junk not worth reading

This author started out with a decent storyline & positive characters, but decayed into nothing but insane ugliness with no functional storyline. This is a horror writer's bad attempt at real storytelling, whose moral characters nosedive into amorality with no rhyme or reason. Don't waste your money.

This was really good. I was pulled in from the very beginning and kept interested throughout. I found it very well written and hard to put down. I recommend reading.

Some fights were repetitive but a decent book. Don’t like dropping sex into the mix

Some fights were repetitive had and there was too much sex talk. This is a

ratty sort of survivor tale with most of the characters unaware of science and the characters were almost useless.

Better than average post apocalyptic fiction. Well edited. Set in England. It explores the impact of societal devastation and grief on different characters.
