Review by: Wayne Hicks on July 13, 2013 : (no rating)
The characters are well developed and engaging, quickly capturing the reader's attention and sympathy. And the story line is exciting; you read on because you know there's yet another surprise in store, and can't wait to see what it will be!

However, this book is an example of one that would have benefited from the services of an editor. Punctuation is weak, and there are far too many instances of improper word usage ("you're" instead of "your", "to" instead of "too", etc.) I encourage the Author to continue writing, but little things like these will irritate many readers and can keep a great story (which this one is!) from reaching its potential.

I was amazed at these books. I am an ad vide reader and was half way through the book before I realized it. Can't wait for more books from this author. Keep up the great job Erica.

A real page turner! I really like the way that the stars of the story were developed as well as the supporting cast, which prevents the story from becoming bogged down. The desperation of their situations is expertly told. Only the presence of a couple of grammatical errors prevent this from being 5 stars. So, it gets a 4.95.

I happened upon this book by accident. The premise looked interesting so I dove in. And I didn't stop reading until I finished it, an "all-nighter". This book grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go. It is a non-stop heart-pounding ride at 100 MPH from start to finish. But don't let that description fool you into thinking it's all action and no characterization, quite the opposite. The author manages to flesh out her characters nicely without letting up on the momentum. You come to care about these people and their situation. Each brings their own style, voice, and sometimes humor, to the deadly world they find themselves in. This book is a must read.

Excellent read! I came upon this series about mid-way through the book, once I caught up to the serial releases I found myself pulling my hair out waiting for next Monday. In short, this book has a great storyline with well thought ideas and the author's descriptions are detailed. I'm reading the second book now as it comes out every Monday. Great series!

Review by: M F Smith on Nov. 13, 2012 :
The writing describing the initial "earthquake" is excellent - I almost felt as though I was there. The dialogue is good. Some of the characters are quite compelling. All in all, the writing style is lean, yet evocative. What I don't personally care for is the three "character streams", although I can see what the author is attempting and perhaps why. I prefer (but don't use) the "godlike narrator" who sees all and tells all or the single viewpoint narrator (see my environmental apocalypse http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005U3U69C) who only tells about what he sees. Matter of taste, of course! Well done.

The biggest problem with this book, was it left me wanting more. I couldn't go to bed until I finished it. I can't wait for the rest.
