Editorial Reviews


"I couldn't put this book down ... Sleep is good, but books are better."
-San Francisco Book Review
"Zenner's engrossing, brilliantly-written work -- which is reminiscent of The Stand -- follows main characters Brian, Steven, and Simon as they travel across the country to reunite with loved ones after a devastating illness wipes out most of the population. Their journeys are long, hard, and absorbing. The central theme of good versus evil permeates the story, as the main characters find themselves having to choose between the right thing to do and what they need to do to survive in this version of civilization. Character development is strong, the prose is top notch, and the plot sucks the reader in up to the last paragraph."
-The Booklife Prize in Fiction (Review of Part I: To Alice)
"A riveting, un-putdownable post-apocalyptic novel ..Full of action, suspense, and jaw-dropping surprises, The After War, Part 1: To Alice by Brandon Zenner is a book that fans of the post-apocalyptic genre will definitely want to read. A fresh spin on a popular thread, it weaves together contrasting characters to create an incredibly colorful, albeit somewhat dark, yarn. As the protagonists face their many challenges, Zenner explores not only their physical dilemmas, but, also, their metaphysical strife, which makes the story very thought-provoking and deep. This eloquently-written, fast-paced novel is the first installment in what promises to be a compelling series, and it's sure to leave readers wanting more."
-Red City Review (Review of Part I: To Alice)
"When I was in high school, I had to read The Road for a book project; this book reminded me a lot of the overall feeling of The Road. However, I personally felt that Brandon Zenner did a much better job at character development ..."
-Readers' Favorite Book Review
"Zenner has woven a gritty narrative of a future all too terrifyingly possible for us."
-Manhattan Book Review
"Top Pick! 5 Stars (out of five): Freaking amazing. Any agent or publishing house that passed this one up made a big mistake. It was selected by our reviewer as a personal favorite. This is also a nomination for our Novel of the Year award." 
-Underground Book Reviews
"The characterization in THE AFTER WAR is where author Brandon Zenner's writing prowess truly shines. Every character in the story feels fleshed out, while remaining mysterious enough to keep readers engaged in trying to determine how things will turn out. Every character has their flaws, but Zenner masterfully weaves their personalities together in an intriguing mesh of strength, weakness, humanity and instinct."
-Indie Reader (Review of Part I: To Alice)
"It was like the reader is in this desolate land and are able to see and feel what these characters are seeing and feeling."
-Boundless Book Reviews
"A post-apocalyptic story that takes the reader on a hazardous and harrowing journey across North America where civilization has collapsed and anarchy seems to reign. From the beginning, Zenner surprises the reader."
-Flurries of Words Book Review
