Book Description

What if you could see the future with a single touch? What if that touch revealed someone’s death, and that person was someone you loved? Would you do everything you could to change it?

In a post-apocalyptic world, where danger roams in many forms, seventeen-year-old Waverly seeks protection in the town of Crestwood after her boyfriend is ruthlessly killed by lawless raiders. But what she finds is a place wrought with mystery, shady dealings, and more instability than she anticipates.

The Starborn Ascension takes place 57 years before The Starborn Uprising, and can be read independently.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly compelling April 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have ZERO use for zombie books/movies. And I would be hard pressed to explain why I kept reading this book after realizing that it is, indeed, in that category. But there is a good plot, it is well written, gore kept to a minimum level (particularly for the genre), no cussing and no sexual nastiness. It actually relies on having a plot and being well written. Which is highly annoying because now I really want to read the next books in the series. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars An Adventure in a World Overrun by Zombies June 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Anywhere But Here focuses on two characters, 17-yr old Waverly who can see a glimpse of someone's future when she touches their hand. Not much was made of her ability until the end of the book. She is trying to reach a save haven in this post apocalyptic, zombie overrun world, called Crestwood.

The second is Remi, a young woman who has reached Crestwood. She has an abnormal ability to hear in a most strange, particular fashion. Remi seemed to spend most of the book with a nonsensical obsession to have a gun even when she did not need one (she surrendered hers in order to join Crestwood).

For the most part, I was not able to connect with the characters, especially Remi, and was puzzled on several occasions when the characters said or did things that seemed at odds with their personality/character.

The origins of the zombies, who pose a constant threat throughout the book, is revealed in the book through flashbacks, but I do not recall seeing an explanation as to why some normal people were developing abnormal/super powers.

Another threat present are raiders, and through them the book introduces a thread that continues into the sequels, for Waverly's group takes something from them, and they spend the rest of the book trying to get it back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite but not bad. June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good story but leaves the reader hanging at the end so that a second and possibly third book has to be bought. In other words it is not a stand alone book. I eventually will purchase book 2 and 3 but for now there are other books to read. I also am not a real fan of "walking dead" tales so the other books are not high on my priority list.

I definitely recommend this series as well as Starborn Uprising. I am not very good at giving reviews, so I am not even going to try. If you like books with a slight glimpse of romance, apocalyptic times, zombies, and the struggle for human kind to keep afloat in the midst of everything else, read this series. You will not be disappointed. The author spins a good tale with believable characters. Plus, it's cheap. :) Just enjoy.

About page 15 Waverly allows Lucas, her love, to get his head blown off by a high powered bullet. AFTER she has a vision that could have prevented it. Then about page 52 what's left of her group finds a cash of fire arms. Waverly won't have anything to do with them because she and Lucas didn't like guns, cause they make too much noise that makes the greyskins come after them. Never mind that other bad guys have guns, killed Lucas with one, and she and her group stole guns, and shot a few of the guys that killed Lucas.

I'm sure the book will get better for most readers. But for me Waverly's character will never be believable as a heroine. Sorry. I really wanted to finish the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling story leaves you wanting more! June 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was my first time reading a book by Jason Morrow and I must say I am so very glad that I did. Anywhere But Here is so well written that not only did I love this book, I bought even more of Jason Morrow's works. I am not going to give the book away only to say it is well worth the 5 stars that I gave it. Be sure to read this book and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for future installments! May 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series takes place three years after the outbreak and is a phenomenal read. If possible I'd start with The Starborn Uprising books before this one, since there is some back story in that series that will help understand this one better. However, you could read this first and not lose anything in the story line. I can't wait for more from this author in the Starborn stories! Highly recommended. Well done Mr. Morrow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good First Book June 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read the all of the Starborn series and find this a very good start to go back to. It labeled as a stand alone book and it does fit that bill, but I really hope Jason D. Morrow follows up with more. I can not wait
