More About the Author

Theresa Shaver lives in South Central Alberta Canada.
As an avid reader, I used to dream about writing and sharing my own stories with the world. Publishing was a far off and intimidating goal until Amazon opened the gates! I love that I get real feed back from my fans on my books instead of some guy behind a desk who studies market trends. I write to share my dreams with the world and now I can. My first series is a Young Adult Post-apocalypse story. I love writing about the growth of characters faced with such huge challenges and plan to continue future stories in wrecked worlds. It's a new do it yourself world in so many industries so never stop believing in your dreams and do it yourself!

My most important takeaway? I very much enjoyed this book, and am going to buy the sequel immediately. I'm a hard fit, in that I like post-apocalyptic fiction, but I want a little more optimism. (I know. I'm sorry). LAND found a really encouraging balance there. Yes, plenty of bad guys are taking advantage of the post-EMP chaos, but plenty of others (our protagonists especially) are managing to both survive *and* share their food, protect themselves *and* risk themselves for others (like the little boy in the car, early on). I liked the characters, who were distinctly drawn, very much. My need for optimism may be why I was not at all bothered by their skills or luck. Hooray, capable and-perhaps-lucky characters!

On the downside, this book could use a good copy-editing. I'm only going into this level of detail because the author specifically asks for feedback, good or bad, but some very consistent issues I ran into include:
* Periods between dialogue and tags, instead of commas. EXAMPLE: "...we've been going hard ever since." Quinn assured him. This should be, "...we've been going hard ever since," Quinn assured him (the tag continues the sentence; it's not its own sentence).
* In contrast, commas instead of periods between dialogue and action that isn't a tag. EXAMPLE: The man shook his head in disgust, "Damn sheep." This should be, The man shook his head in disgust. "Damn sheep." (It's 2 sentences).
* Quotation marks around direct thoughts, instead of italicizing those thoughts.

This is a young adult fantasy book with a electro-magnetic pulse as the McGuffin. Don't read this book looking for any level of realism, you won't find much. Where do I begin? First off these are the smartest and most level headed 16 year olds on the planet and they are also the luckiest. They have the smartest teacher ever who educates them all about EMP, gives them hundreds of dollars in cash, and then conveniently goes with the main group of students so these several teens can be super teens without adult supervision. The teacher going with the main group was at least realistic. This small group of teens soon get lucky breaks one after the other including finding two murdered cops. Do the teens stay 50 yards away from the dead officers like real life teens would do?, No, they strip the cops of weapons and extra mags. Please! This happens only hours after the EMP attack. They conveniently find bikes to buy with their worthless paper money and manage to load a shitpot load of stuff into bike trailers and bike saddle bags. They find food, supplies, and pre-electronic ignition vehicles including an RV the boys are able to drive like long haul truckers. Please, again! One of the boys gets shot and one of the 16 year old girls operates on him at a (again) conveniently located kitty and doggy hospital and the place hasn't been looted. Do I even have to mention they conveniently find a "how to operate" manual and save the kid by digging out the bullet. OMFG that was the topper. This is a very short novel for $4.99 and wait for it, it has a cliff hanger non-ending. Funny the book description didn't say anything about this being part 1 of a multi-part story. Even so part 1 should have had an actual ending and it doesn't. I don't recommend this novel to anyone especially teenagers. If anyone did half the dumb crap these super teens did in a real emergency they would quickly die horrible painful deaths.

When I finished reading Land, I was disappointed. Actually I knew I was disappointed long before I reached the ending, but the so called ending of this book just pushed me right over the edge. I had considered giving this book just 1 star, but it may be entertaining for the young adult audience that's not into a realistic portrayal of teenagers struggling to get home.

The writing is simplistic? amateurish? it's something. It's a young adult novel and I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is the way the five young 16 year old kid's are able to travel over a thousand miles while encountering very few hardships. There are a couple instances of danger, but these were the luckiest kids I had ever read and they avoided them easily. And the way they managed to be everybody's hero, was just pathetic, really, I started rolling my eyes every time it happened; because it seemed that every single adult was an idiot that needed the kids to rescue them from their predicament or explain to them what was going on, because you know, they're all idiots. I hate young adult books that elevate intelligence of the kid by lowering the IQ of everyone else.

The only real difficulty in the book was for Alex, and trying to decide which guy she wanted to be her boyfriend.

And when we finally wade through all this nonsense to reach the ending...aha, a cliff hanger. Seems to be a new theme among authors, trying to lure readers to buy the second book. Unfortunately it doesn't work this time, I have no desire to continue with this series.
