Another great post apocalypse novel by William Oday, this one has a wide selection of characters. Both good, bad and four legged. And those characters stay with you well after the last page. The action is no slouch either. Can’t wait for the next book.
A really good story in the post-apocalyptic genre written by William Oday. Easy to read and easy to believe after an EMP event, where the cause is not immediately obvious. In various places around the country, Cade Bowman is on his way home when the event hits and his plane crashes, daughter Lillian is in Los Vegas with her best friend Piper, and mother Samantha and Cade & Sam’s son Ethan are back home in Durango, Colorado. All characters experience the bad side of life when the local neer- do- wells strike out at all and sundry, taking advantage of the situation to line their own pockets with little thought to the future. Cade and his family, maybe with the exception of son Ethan have discussed such a scenario and all set out to head for home, Cade via Las Vegas in search of his daughter Lily. Cade accompanied by a young fellow he helped save from the downed aircraft, Hudson McKinney, set off on bicycles for the trip to Las Vegas and after helping a farmer fight off some bad dudes, they end up in a situation where they are attacked by another group of scum that kill another farmer they are visiting and would do damage to Cade and Hudson, except they are able to get away. Lily and Piper plan to get out of Las Vegas in their old family car which still runs, but they are captured by a drug addled crook who thinks to make money out of selling the young girls to a local thug. Again they are lucky to escape after a harrowing experience. It is a similar scene in Durango where Samantha and Ethan are attached by a thug in the back yard of their own home. With the assistance of the family dog, they escape the thug and bunker down for the duration. There is more of the story to tell (and hear) and I look forward to the epilogue to this book, and a possible follow up, because this was a really good and enjoyable read. Moses
