About this ebook

One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance. 

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

Take a deep breath before you start The Last Orphans Series. This action adventure series filled with cinematic science fiction action, end of the world apocalyptic events, and heart pounding thrills will leave you enthralled from beginning to end. Fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and The Maze Runner by James Dasher will love this teen fiction series. With over 500 five-star reviews on Goodreads, this is definitely the series you should read next!

Very difficult to read. Every single sentence is imagery or metaphor or both. It makes for arduous reading. I feel that if the imagery were cut down to a normal amount, the book would only be 75 pages. I got it for free so I don't like to look a gift horse in the mouth, but this writing is unfortunately hard to read for anyone above a 5th grade reading level. Made it to chapter 7 before I simply couldn't put up with it any more.

I quit after chpt. 4. Everything bleak, death and chaos every page. Children traumatized by the violent deaths of family and any adult in their lives. Left without any governing body or authority to turn to in such extreme pain and bewilderment. I couldn't read any more, I guess I'm at an age where I'm looking for the rainbows not the storms.

Excellent read! Has me hooked to buy the other titles now. With a publisher named Clean Teens it's no surprise there isn't more realistic language. Much more adult themes could've been explored, but they weren't missed. A story very well-told!

About the author

Born at the end of the Vietnam war and raised on a horse farm near small town north Georgia, his imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding his family’s log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee morning hours, he read books. He lives in sunny southern California with his beautiful wife and two perfect children.
