About this ebook

A world-ending meteor. An invasion of monsters. A desperate fight for survival...


Alex Keener has lived all of his sixteen years in Bunker 108. He's walked the same metal halls, seen the same faces, has followed the same rules. All that changes when a viral outbreak forces him to flee the safety of his bunker.


Outside, he discovers a barren world twisted by the impact of the meteor Ragnarok thirty years ago. Alone, he must wander a brutal landscape, where every breath is a fight for survival. Monsters haunt the planet's surface, and nothing of the old world remains.


Can Alex survive this hellish wasteland, or will he become its newest victim?

Any fan of the fallout series of games will see a very close comparison with this fun quick taster of his apocalyptic series, I almost expected to find the bobble head figures showing up for upgrades. OK nothing hugely original but you will probably read it in one go and be eager to catch the next installment.

OMG this is by far the most amazing world building dystopian novel I've ever read. The story is filled with fantastic but believable characters as they discover what changes have occurred in their part of the world. In the year 2030, the meteor Ragnarok impacted Earth, rending the world a wasteland. Billions died, the sky went crimson, and the world entered an ice age from which it will not emerge for centuries.By 2060, what is left of the United States exists underground in the Bunkers. Where once there were 144, now only four are left - fallen for reasons of starvation, rebellion, or worse. For in the wake of Ragnarok are new and sinister threats, threats which do not yet have a name...Born into this post-apocalyptic world is sixteen-year-old Alex Keener, who has lived his entire life underground in U.S. Bunker 108. But when a stranger is let into the Bunker from the wastes, in defiance of protocol, all hell breaks loose...and Alex's life will never be same again. Grab this amazingly told story and begin a journey different from any other.

A weak writing style, coupled an unimaginative story line. Everything described brings to mind scenes from the (brilliantly thought out) Fallout series of games but with less creativity. A disappointing read after reading "The postman" and "The Road".
