The Survivors

Rated 4.20/5 based on 5 reviews
Post-Apocalyptic Survival
"War was uglier than we’d imagined. The Draft was reinstated, taking our men and boys. Within days, stores had nothing on the shelves; people began to starve. Hospitals closed due to lack of space and medicine. Police stopped answering calls, stopping coming to work at all. Topside production faded as communications became spotty. Then the power went off…" More

About Angela White

Who is Angela White?
I published my first book in elementary school--Mystery of the Missing Tabby. The school library still has it, as far as I know. That was my first real work, where writing became solace for me.
In Jr. High, a teacher told our class none of us could match the classic authors we would be studying; we weren’t good enough. I took that to heart and turned in an A- paper with a rookie mistake that prevented me from getting the respect I wanted from that lady. I hated it that she was right. I still do.
I also adore her for waking my brain to the possibility that someday I might be as good as one of the iconic writers who frame the world of literature. I’ll never know if she did it intentionally, but it worked for me. I’ve never wanted to do anything else.
Thanks to that drive, the fire she finished waking, I live off my writing and run my own publishing company. I have twenty novels out, and thousands of fans. It's a long way to go before children study my work in schools, but I’m still just as hot for it now as I was in that musty classroom in 7th grade.

So, that’s who I am. I am building, and living, the American dream.
Who are you and what have you done?

That’s a hard question to answer if you’re still trying to get there. I understand. Here’s some free advice: Follow your dreams, even when the world says it’s crazy. Sometimes, you’ll find a life that satisfies you more than you ever thought was possible. Chase that, starting right now, and the next time someone asks who you are, tell them you’re an immovable force, a wild dreamer, a hopeful comet shooting toward the goals that orbit your existence. And then lift your chin. There aren’t many of us left who want to be good at what we do. Everyone else just seems to want that green shit.

I now write full time and live on a small ranch with my family and our clowder of barn cats. You haven’t laughed until you’ve seen newborn kittens playing in the weeds. It’s an amazing way to begin the day. Thank you to everyone who gave me a try. I wouldn’t have this life if not for all of you. Self-sufficiency is an indescribable gift, especially when you grow up poor. May someone help each of you the way you’ve helped me.

Great series, am on book 7 now and felt I should put a review on. Very good stories, sometimes the writing is a bit scattered but the story still comes through. There is a lot of typo's and/or writing mistakes and I would prefer a bit less of the "personal" drama in the later books, but again, I still can't wait to see what happens.

If you like post-apocalyptic survival stories you will love this book. Life After War: Book One - The Survivors by Angela White is a great adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire read.

The author did a great job of creating a storyline that is both realistic and easy to identify with. No crazy zombies or weird brain sucking creatures, just a world turned upside down and people trying to survive. It was east to get caught up in this book and I found it hard to put down. When I did put it down I could not get it out of my mind.

Angela White did an excellent job of developing her characters. I like the way she made them seem like real people who you would meet on the street. This helped me internalize the story and get caught up in following the main characters.

Life After War: Book One - The Survivors by Angela White is an excellent book and I highly recommend this book. I can't wait to read the next installment.

** The author recommends the book to an adult audience due to the violent, graphic and mature nature of the story.

Just finished Books 1 & 2 of the series and immediately bought Book 3 and Adrian's Eagles (I'm hoping it's Book 4).
The story line is strong, the characters believable and I found myself really caring about what happens to them. Some of the images in the books are disturbing to me, but if the end of the world happens in this fashion, it won't be pretty.
There were a few grammatical errors that pulled me out of the story, but these happen, even in best-selling novels. I was once one of fifty readers for a very well-known SF author and there were still errors in the published book.
This is an excellent series and I look forward to reading the rest of it.

I thought this book was good. I too had gotten it before it was re-released, so I find the author has a great talent of descriptive words so well put that you could "see" this happening. All of these humans that survived the war have make it through a deserted wasteland of misery.

I purchased Life After War (book 1 in The Survivors series) quite some time ago (July 2011)... before the first re-edit.

Yep... have to agree... initially I encountered lots of distractions due to grammer, spelling, punctuation, etc. But the story caught me from the first page and I just quit dwelling on the distractions and read around them.

And before you read any further, I contacted Angela prior to posting this to make sure she was OK with me doing this... she agreed but only if I included that I am now working with her as an Editor (02-2012 - in fact). This review is based on my thoughts & opinions well before I met her and hope it is read with this understanding. If I thought her writing sucked, well, I'd be posting that... and I wouldn't have agreed to edit for her! But I genuinely love her writing style and admire her ability to roll with the punches and do everything she can to improve for her readers. So... read on...

I LOVE post-apocalyptic fiction, and Angela White has managed to write a most engaging story. I DID purchase the other books in the series - yes, even prior to the re-edit of book 1. Have to say, editing has improved with each book and I've recently re-read the edited book 1. The good thing, Ms. White seems to take reviews to heart, and is taking steps to improve.

When I read fiction... I read it as, well, fiction. There's lot of room for poetic license and fiction isn't meant to be a factual accounting. Unlike some, I thoroughly enjoy the "what if's" of fiction... what if that could happen, what if that person could do that? That's what I love about fiction - equal parts fact & fancy. I look to other medium for "the facts"

There are some areas that the storyline is quite harsh, but caused me to think - would "Life After War" be all nicey, nicey? Not likely! It would be pretty ugly, personalities would change, people would adapt or die off. In order to survive, I think we'd have to do what Angela's Survivors did - create order from chaos, follow strict rules & guidelines to maintain order, learn to fight & all the training that would require. Everyone would, of necessity, have to do their part and punishments would have to be quite severe in order for our world to be rebuilt better than it was before such a devastating event.

There are so many characters and that can be difficult to keep track of (for me, at least) but I've found that they all have an important part to play which makes it easy to remember them throughout.

I read constantly, and have found that even the gazillion-selling authors have their editing, tense, spelling, etc, issues (have read a couple of best-selling authors recently, and YES, I found errors... maybe they need me to copy edit? lol).

No one is perfect, but with an author of such promise as Angela White, I have no problem being patient while she works through finding her groove. I just hope Angela's detractors don't stop her from writing.

I have also read the first 2 books in her Bachelor Battles series - love them just as much and can't wait for the next books in both series.

My recommendation? If you enjoy this genre, read this author - you just may become an avid fan!

Unfortunately, I most vehemently disagree with Peggy's assessment. The premise that one man, even a Former President, with only a virus could perform a remote nuclear launch,let alone multiple launches, is absurd! Further, the Author's viewpoint that the American military, just because they were ordered to do so, would willingly shoot fleeing civilians and who's only crime is that they don't want to be drafted; speaks volumes as to the Author's lack of understanding and quite possibly outright disdain for the military. I for one only made it through Adrian of Chapter Two before leaving in disgust to write this review.
