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!
