Book Review

Ash
by Tom Abrahams

Series:
#1 in Alt Apocalypse

Category:  Dystopian Fiction

Average Rating:  5.0

This series, which can be read in any order, features the same core characters in each complete story. But every book dunks them into a new, alternate apocalypse; a nuclear holocaust, an earthquake, a flood, a wildfire, a hurricane, a plague, and even zombies. Different heroes will emerge in each novel. Different characters will survive and perish. Your favorite character dies in one book? He or she will be back in the next. In the end you'll unwind the loose thread that connects every character and every stand-alone story.

In ASH, Abrahams tells the story of four college friends, an ex-con, a lonely fry cook, and a secretive group of prepared civilians as they each battle to survive in southern California after a series of nuclear attacks. Theirs is a gray world covered in ash and nuclear fallout.

Do they hunker down? Do they bug out? Do they find their salvation above ground or below?

At last! Dystopian fiction without a cliffhanger ending. Although, in the end, one does wonder what the future holds for these mostly believable characters. Very little of this story requires significant suspension of disbelief. It's a compelling story magnificently performed by Kevin Pierce. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this series.
