This is one of those books that has something for everyone -- action (and I mean LOTS of it), romance, tragedy, mystery, intrigue -- but it's also a refreshingly original and wildly imaginative take on the post-apocalypse epic. Like any story with strong sci-fi/fantasy elements, it's difficult to explain what makes it so great without either spoiling the finer details or sounding a little off-the-wall, but rest assured that this is like no other end-of-the-world/alien-invasion/genre-busting/war-story you've ever read.

Content aside, Beyond Armageddon makes for a pretty breezy read in spite of its length, since the author sticks to a very clear and concise writing style that lends itself well to clear mental imagery. There are loads of interesting characters, running the gamut from down-to-earth, quirky, badass, or just plain weird, but almost all of them get at least a little development. There's also some fairly sharp social commentary to be found here, but thankfully it never gets bogged down with the sort of agenda-driven preachiness so many other stories are guilty of.

All in all, this book rose far past my expectations and shouldered its way into my very exclusive list of all-time favorites. It is at times funny, tense, horrifying, and heart-breaking. It gets my very highest recommendation. At 99 cents, you have no excuse not to be reading this right now.

This is a monster of a book, 13k locations on the Kindle. The story is not bad, but the book itself suffers from a serious lack of proofreading and editing. With some good editing, it could drop to below 10k locations without losing too much of the storyline. There are some pretty bad gaffes in the writing, for instance "They found Tolbert outside on his hands and needs coughing".

The formatting is Ok, except for the indents, which have a mind of their own. Also, the italics sometimes don't get switched off and run on for pages.

As for the story, there are some cool monsters and the heroes beat them most of the time, but I didn't like the way the author handled the romance. The ending was a bit flat, but that was probably for the lead up to the follow on book. I will definitely buy it, but I doubt whether I'll read it in one go if the editing and formatting are the same as this one.

I would have rated this 4* if the formatting/editing was better.

Cheap seat residents rejoice!

Terrific diversion with character depth, supernatural aspects, heroes, action galore and a handful of people you will cheer and more than a few you will want to choke... For a buck it's a helluva deal from an author with real promise. Has the usual editing issues at this price of admission, but delivers quite a show that leaves you wanting more.

This is an excellent tale of the invasion of earth. It's not what you expect at all. Its bad enough to get invaded, but here you get invaded by several alien races, their indigenous deadly creatures, and it all appears to be orchestrated by yet other higher beings. Nasties with ray guns are the least of your worries when there are bus sized critters looking to eat something, and people are now near the bottom of the food chain. Humanity is on the brink, and one man has been given 3 gifts to try and pull it back from the abyss.

I've read the 4 available books in the last 3 days. The 5th, with luck, will come out Feb 2012.

Book1 is the heroes background, the crash of humanity, awakening.
Book2 is getting things under control standing their ground, taking ground back, love, and sacrifice.
Book3 is about power, impossible dilemma's, political backstabbing.
Book4 is power, politics, collaborators, betrayal, revenge, and the larger picture.

The first 3 books are primarily action orientated. The story is consistently moving forward with new discoveries and characters that are fully developed people, people you care about. The 4th book was more political and spent too much time showing how conniving and corrupt they were. I knew that already and didn't care. Fortunately, you can quickly skip all that nonsense and miss nothing. In the end it was all worth it as the conclusion was way better than I expected, and it had me grinning from ear to ear. Book 5 cant come soon enough, where's the pre-order button?

Very well written dialog, exceptional detail, vivid imagery. Occasional typo, margins sometimes wonder, but the story is so engrossing you're not likely to be bothered by any of it.

Truly one of the best books I have read this year. The attention to detail was excellent. The plot was strong and I felt secure getting attached to characters. The book was eventful enough that I never got bored. If you enjoy sci-fi novel of epic proportions, this is it. A wonderful mix of The Stand and some weirdly unique version of War of the Worlds. I also loved the setting in rural PA - so superior to the generic major city background. The author really knew his geography well and placed the reader directly in the story (and often into the path of a rampaging alien!).

This book will be one of my top recommendations to my sci-fi buddies this year. Can't wait to start the second.
