Book Description


                                             They came from the West
                                              Seven fighters to the end
                                           One stunning blonde warrior
                                             Leading six hard-ass men

                                                    Alexa's Travels
                                                  Apocalyptic fiction
                                                 An impossible quest
                                              & A Haunting new vision

Long years after the war of 2012 devastated America, a group of survivors has come out of the radiation zones in the West. On an impossible quest to find those who came before them, these warriors follow the remnants of Safe Haven... and let nothing stand in their way.
"Bone Dust and Beginnings gives the reader a front row seat to how the quest started. An amazingly entertaining cast of characters. One of Ms. White's best yet." - The Review Blog
Alexa is a leader of men. She culled her companions from the dwindling herd of mankind because she sensed they alone might have the strength to make the journey and each battle fought at her side tightens their bonds. For her, their quest is about more than finding a safe place. It's about the search for her missing family.

Editorial Reviews


Book One of the Alexa's Travels series is a dark fantasy quest into the apocalypse, where Bone Dust is the currency and nightmares stalk man's roads in search of prey.

From the Author

The Alexa's Travels series came to me while trying to envision what the United States would be like years after a nuclear war. I saw a small group of fighters, hardened men able to handle anything that was in their path. An ocean beckoned to them from the distance, but first, they had to get through the Mountains. These survivors were on a quest to find something no one had seen in a decade... Safety.

From there, the scene changed to show me a close-up of these fighters and I was surprised to see them led by a woman. Judging by her looks and the way she was teaching, controlling, herding her men, I recognized her as kin to Adrian, the hero of my Life After War series. Then, I understood what these fighters were searching for... Those who'd come before them... Safe Haven.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved seeing how Alexa chose her fighters! October 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are new to the Alexa's Travels series, "Bone Dust & Beginnings" is the book you want to start with. The author apologizes/explains at the end of this book that "The Mountaineer's (Alexa's Travel's) was published out of order, no worries if you've already read it, it's just that "Bone Dust & Beginnings" is where Alexa's quest actually began and where/how she chooses her group of 6 men known as her fighters and/or "my pets" as she also affectionately calls them. I really enjoy this series and it's also nice that it has a connection to the "Life After War" series(another favorite of mine!). Alexa and her fighters are heading for Safe Haven, not only to find a safe place but also so Alexa can search for her missing family. A nuclear war in 2012 had devastated the world, in "Bone Dust & Beginnings" Alexa is traveling with 4 "fighters" and as she continues on her quest she will add in others. Along the way they run into very interesting characters, including a troll named Jendon, there are battles, lessons, and also some magic! "Bone Dust & Beginnings" immediately draws you in and I found it hard to put down. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see what adventures are in store for Alexa and her "pets"!

I had just finished the Life After War books and was desperately looking for more of those, when I tripped over Alexa's Travels. I was pleased to find that they are connected. Of course, like the other books, I devoured these two and they were finished all too quickly. Now I'm pining away for new installments to BOTH of these series. Oh, the humanity! And so I wait... Great job again Angela! =)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully written and captivated I did become! February 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When I stumbled upon Angela White's book,at first I wasn't quite sure it was for me...the cover and description makes it clear there is some darkness to this written work, but captivating none of the less! I took a peek, read a little, read a little more and there you have it... I was hooked!
A wonderfully well written story that gives new perspective of life, war and survival...with a fantastic magical fantasy twist! (was that a tongue twister?) Put a gal in charge,who's one tuff cookie, well...even better! (Has nothing to do with my main characters being girls... really) Alexa is one tough, clever chic that knows her stuff and knows how to lead. The adventure she takes you on, building her force,fighting her battles and learning some lessons,no wonder men flock to and follow her!

I love magic, I love fantasy and I absolutely loved Angela White's (A. White) Bone Dust & Beginnings!
For $.99 cents your a fool to pass this one by...

5.0 out of 5 stars Added some dimension to Life After War June 5, 2013
By J. Huff
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like the Life After War series, you will most likely like this. I am not going to rewrite the plot summary and provide a pile of spoliers (sure you can find that in other reviews), but will just say that I found this to be just as entertaining as I did the life after war stories, and an ok time filler while I wait for the next of those to come out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was hoping for more writing like the after war series... September 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
But alas, no. Filled with errors that a good editor would catch, the story line is not strong enough to make me pay for the next Alexa story. Boo hiss.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the life after war series. There were issues with grammar and spelling . But with this book it jumped all over the place. There was a lot of disconnect with the story. I would not recommend this at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really good premise May 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I sincerely like White 's apocalyptic writing but wish she would FINISH an idea before starting off on another tangent. I won't buy any more of her books until I know a series is completed. It is too frustrating.

More About the Author

I'm Angie(Pen name)

Little pleases me more than to explore the dark fantasy and horror stories in my head. Knowing other people like them is second only to the magic of this new career I've chosen. As a die-hard Cincinnatian, I much prefer writing to the stresses of being a Taxicab dispatcher. Thank you for making my dreams possible, and for looking at this page!

Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, lets you and I take a little stroll. There's a story I need to let out of its cage and I think it's one you need to hear. It's about the end of the world as we know it...

Note: Many of my books were removed until the new editor (ePubMasters) could get them into top shape. It was clear from the reviews, that we had a lot of work to do. Right now, we have 2 of those files finished and back online for your reading pleasure. The remaining books will return as soon as we finish them.
The edited files are:
The Survivors: Book One
On The Road: Book Two
We are currently working on Safe Haven: Book Three.

Note: Please delete your current copy of these books before you try to download the newest, or you'll get the same file you had.
