Don't just survive the apocalypse -- live!
His son died, and his wife left him. Then the world ended. It was about to get much worse.
Tom was already prepared for society's collapse when the nonstop solar storms arrived. He just hadn't planned on the loneliness.
When a woman and a little boy show up, they bring with them much more than Tom had bargained for. He'll not only have to battle for his life; he'll need to fight for a reason to live, as he recalls the painful memories and the songs linked to them in Hell's Requiem.
This story is just weird. It's too dependent on the supernatural and the songs don't work for me. I can't relate to the music or see their relationship to the story. I can't relate to the characters either. None are likable or believable. Kevin Pierce delivers his customary excellent performance, but it's just not enough. This story simply does not deliver what I expect from dystopian fiction.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
