The Perseid Collapse book 1 is really introduction to a story quite longed winded with lots of un-required detail where no answers are available. The many stories are introduced around a single family in a catastrophe in the New England area of the USA and no answers are provided. The book is really part one of book of a 4 part book with quite a few stories and it appears that any answers will not be provided if you do not purchase the rest of the series i.e. books 2/3 or 4. I feel I got tricked into reading book one and I give 4 out of 10...I'll just have to put up with not knowing the final outcome. It's just too long winded.
