Book Description

Untold miles of lawless, apocalyptic roads wait for our feet

"This is Safe Haven Refugee Camp. Can anyone hear me? …hello? Is anyone out there?

The end of the world has given us a harsh, merciless existence, where nature tries hard to push mankind to the very brink of extinction. Everything is against us, between us... Untold miles of lawless, apocalyptic roads wait for our feet, and the future, cold and dark, offers little comfort. Without change, there can be no peace. Only survivors.”

From dangerous trips into dark, apocalyptic cities, to patriotic rescues and furious revelations, Life After War is an action-packed fantasy series where those left alive must come to terms with their mistakes in the old world, while fighting for a place in the new one. Life After War. Magic and Reality blended into a post-apocalyptic fantasy series that you won't ever forget.

Summary in 20 words or less:

An action adventure quest, with a supernatural romance, and many other subplots, set during the aftermath of the apocalypse.

What can you expect to discover in this fantasy series?

  • The End of the World, up close and full of apocalyptic horror.
  • A government conspiracy that caused the apocalypse.
  • An adventure into the wastelands to find family, supplies, and safety.
  • A supernatural romance with a dangerous secret about a child's parentage and a love strong enough to survive nuclear armageddon.
  • An invasion, ambushes, attacks from nature and man-guns and magic!
  • A refugee camp with very different laws, picking up those who have survived.
  • A hero you will love, even as you ponder the secrets that could lose him leadership.
  • A witch, a doctor, a government storm tracker, a star, and three Marines struggling to keep their people alive and together as they prepare to defend themselves against Cesar's slavers.
  • A constant battle for survival that includes deadly trips into decaying American cities, insanity, relics of the past, and ghosts that stalk their every move.

"Set along the lines of The Stand and The Postman, this is a chilling vision of the collapse of all society and the rebirth of a nation by those who survived. It's so much more than just another fantasy series."

Note from the Author:

This book has now gone through multiple editors since the release in 2010: The total I have spent is more than 3K, just for the file you are about to read. If there are still mistakes, I apologize. However, I am done with editing this file now. I have other books to be written. If you can overlook the occasional typo that may still linger and give it a fair chance, this series will stay with you. It encompasses more than seven genres, and has taken me twenty years to make available around the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing and Captivating Main Characters! April 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't usually write reviews for books I've read, but I just had to share. I have read all 3 ebooks (it is also in print an all-in-one). Hooked in the very first chapter. I am glad that I am blessed with a vivid imagination. I can easily see this as a mini-series somewhere.

Marines, Magic and devastation. Survivors come together with a strong sense of Patriotism and Community. One man's vision for a new America (and a SECRET that he must guard at all costs) and the people who are willing to die to make sure that it happens. The characters are both well developed and likable, though some aren't. Likable that is. Some survivors will become heroes, some will be villains in this new world as they were in the old, but much worse and some will discover a strength in themselves that they never new they had.

Book three ended right when a major battle for survival was nearing. The 1st chapter of book 4 has made me impatient for what will happen next.

I give it 4 stars because I really loved the way it not only drew my attention but kept it (I read late into the night). I literally couldn't put the Kindle down! It would have been 5 stars, but for the typos, weird sentence structures and odd punctuations. It was a little annoying.

Angela White brings magic and mystery to Life After War. Post Apocalypse fiction is often strictly about Survival, Angela makes it all about life. The charactors are much more than Survivors after a war, they are the human remains of a collapsed society. I cant wait to see what the After-Fathers do with what the Fore-Fathers Destroyed. I love this series and recomend it to Everybody!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good story with room to grow as the series progresses February 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Survivors by Angela White is the story of people trying to survive after a large nuclear exchange. When society breaks down there is no shortage of selfish people doing horrible things to those that are weaker than them. The book puts a pretty graphic face on some of the happenings and is not suitable for young or easily offended readers.

There area couple of things that set this book apart from a lot of other post apocalyptic stories. The first is the mystery hidden behind everything. Several points in the book hint that characters have some important secrets hidden away and that sets a bit of a hook to get the interest of the reader early. The other thing is the presence of magic. Generally it is not an extremely powerful aspect to a person, but there are a few people who seem to have some subtle abilities and one woman who has a much higher capability with it.

Having some many characters play important roles at times seems to dilute the story a bit as it leads to a lot of scene jumping, but I believe as the series progresses these characters will be together leading to a smoother flow. I will also say that there were several characters I didn't like and even the people deemed "good" guys are survivalists. There really is not a black and white to morality the "good" guys do some fairly reprehensible things in order for their group to survive. To me that aspect lends a bit of a boost to the story, it's great for morality to be black and white in a book, but with only the bare minimum of society left that doesn't seem reasonable.

One other thing I will address is the editing. I received a first edition from the author and read and half of it.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started reading book 1 because it was free, but as soon as I finished I kept buying the rest in the series. I have preordered book 7 and can't wait for it to come out. This series grabs the imagination and pushes you along.On the edge of your seat literally......this is a page turner. Don't expect to put it down once you've started reading and be prepared to immediately move the next book in the series. Love, Love, Love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste November 9, 2011
By Grumble
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the hardest books I've ever struggled through. Aside from it being written like a Harlequin Romance with paper-thin characters, the author seems to know almost nothing about anything she includes in the book.

Some examples:
-Everyone in the military is NOT a "soldier." She calls Marines and Air Force pilots "soldiers." If you really want a bloody nose, go into a bar and call a Marine a "soldier." He'll correct you the first time, and give you a strong reminder the next.

-The author doesn't have the first clue about the effects of nuclear explosions. For example, they don't cause earthquakes, worldwide tsunamis, or, for low altitude bursts, widespread EMP. Only surface bursts create long lasting radiation clouds, and no country with the ability to launch nuke missiles will cause surface bursts because of the reduced damage. For the more effective air bursts, radiation, especially the heavy and more dangerous particles, will "wash out" with rain in a very short period of time. The purpose of nuclear weapons is to destroy war-making capabilities, not to inflict maximum casualties.

-A portable heater powered by D-cell batteries? Oh, come on! There's silly, and then there is preposterous. I'd say "stupid," but I don't want to be insulting.

I wonder if the author ever got past 9th grade English. She doesn't know how to use punctuation properly. Her misuse of commas and use of apostrophes on plural words is terribly distracting. And she doesn't know the difference between homonyms (beech- beach, which- witch). This book is in serious need of at least high school level editing.

And some things are just annoying. Why are all the major characters blue-eyed? And the good guys also have blond hair.

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.
