This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.
Action, adventure, fighting, a mixture of feelings and emotions.
This is a story after the apocalypse, but it is also the story of one man's fight to correct a wrong. It is the story of how much doing the right thing can cost a person.
II enjoyed most of this book. It is a good story, from the viewpoint of one man trying to correct a mistake he made in the past. It stirred a lot of emotion within me, and at times drags the reader right inside the story. Although we are allowed a glimpse of the main characters past life at times, it is very clear when we are in the past instead of the present.
The author did an excellent job showing what could happen after the apocalypse. He gave me, as the reader, a look into the future, and allowed me to imagine being there. I could feel the frustration and self-searching of the main characters, and their emotions.
If you enjoy reading post-apocalypse science fiction, this is a great book. If you like science fiction without monsters and zombies, this is a great book. I would recommend this book to all adult readers, I think they will enjoy it without allowing the emotions overwhelming them.

This was a wonderful story. The author’s writing style is clean and smooth, without the jarring moments that sometimes rip a reader out of the experience of the story. The plot was solid and believable and the people and places within the scope of the story are well developed without being mundane. I ended the book hoping for a sequel, which is probably the highest compliment I can give any book.
