Praise for Final Dawn

Very easy read and very entertaining. Really wish it didn't end when it did... (...) Thanks a lot Mike. Can't wait for book 2 - Joshua Peters

It caught my attention from just a few pages in and I couldn't put it down. - kevinw

Although short in overall length, the thrill/level of excitement while reading was anything but. I was unable to put the book down from the moment I opened it up. - Ryan 

When I started reading this book I thought it would [be] your average post-apocalyptic genre but it isn't and you wont regret reading it - Redt6 

I'm hooked and looking forward to the next book - P. Corliss 

...I would encourage you to give this new author a shot. I enjoyed the book immensely and look forward to reading the next one in the series when it is released. - Lisa Henry

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After purchasing and finishing the first book in this series on its own, I went for the season pack instead of buying the episodes individually. Together (including the "double" purchase of the first book) I saved $2.96 ([1.99*4 + .99] - 5.99) which isn't a lot, but it is appreciated.

From the publishing dates it looks like the series was written over a few month span, and you can definitely see the improvements in writing over the books. Books 3, 4 and 5 are especially powerful, particularly since they introduce the flashbacks that start to reveal more about the backstory of the disaster.

The final book in the first "season" resolves the issues and questions that you'll have from the previous books and leaves you on a cliffhanger of "what do we do now?" The introduction of foreigners other than just the Americans adds to the complexity and the way it is set up is not completely out of the realm of possibility, either. I did occasionally find myself dubious about the use of certain types of technology or hand-waving, but the book is set in 2038, which is both a short and long enough time in the future that much of what the book describes certainly could have occurred.

I'd like to see more of the politics of the time gone into in greater depth as was alluded to during one of the sequences set in Washington, mostly due to the description of the White House. Hopefully this ties in with the mysterious "Mr. Doe" character. Speaking of "Mr. Doe" I was impressed at what was done with this character. While he seemed to start off as very one-dimensional and acted as a throwaway traditional "bad guy", by the end of book 5 it was clear there was a lot of backstory and depth to him as was revealed in the flashbacks. An attack by multiple enemies is excellent to see.

Trust me it's really worth it. Very well told. Adventure/sci-fi/survivalist theme is accessible to even the novice. Well told and compelling. You can really get into the storyline and characters. Can't wait till next season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 2 can't come fast enough November 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If post-apocalyptic fiction is your game, Final Dawn will make you happy. A combination of good writing, an intriguing and unique story, non-stop action and a full cast of varied characters makes this an excellent book. I've settled on Rachel as my favorite at long last, only after I finished the book, simply because of her relentless drive. None of the characters overpower each other, though, and their individual talents seem to be well suited to their tasks and the situations they find themselves in aren't outlandish, either.

Mike's writing style is similar to the famous authors in this genre and if he keeps developing his craft, he should go a long way. The only complaint is that I don't want to wait a month for the start of Season 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good series November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unique take on the post-apocalypse story. I will admit that I didn't anticipate the 'twist' in the last chapter. I like the setup for the next books and will continue following along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked and loving it. November 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It's been a long time since I have truly enjoyed reading a book more. I stumbled across your final dawn on amazon when my daily deal offered the first episode for .99 cents I read the frost couple pages ad knew I had found an awesome series. I immediately went and bought all the rest. I can't wait till jan fir the next episode. Please enjoy Tim with your family but PLEASE can you get the next episode out quick. I am dying to see what happens next.

Hooked and loving it..
