Review by: Eighty Six on Sep. 11, 2011 :
This failed to scare me. I got the feeling of paranoid compulsive-behavior brought on by poisoned air, but the descriptions lacked detail. I never saw the setting. I never saw the beasts. I wanted to get to the end, but it was just the beginning. I'm not sure where this is going.

The run-on sentences and randomly capitalized nouns were also a turn-off.

You might like it more than I did.

Review by: Khaled Benbouzid on Sep. 6, 2011 :
This is like a doom-like game, reader feels he is always watched by the beasts.
Author here, understands the beasts language and their behaviors.

It is really a good read, I enjoyed it, this story is well written with a unique style.
I am impatient to read the next part.

This is taught, suspenseful, well written, claustrophobic and thoughtful...

Review by: Brandy Hunt on May 27, 2011 :
This is the type of post apocalypse story that I love -- what happens in the next generation? And here, Mr. Martinez has managed to give us sympathetic characters with believable problems and impediments.

This is an excellent read, and I certainly wouldn't mind hearing that more might be added to this story line in the future.
