The zombie genre apocalyptic books I normally read getting to be overdone, so this is a refreshing take on something catastrophic that could really happen. It makes you truly think about how you'd survive, where would you be safe and what becomes important.
Kudos to the author and I would love to see this made into a series.
As the Ash Fell takes place a few years into an ongoing apocalyptic event that changed the face of the world and sets civilization to crumbling. The setting and its implications are well thought out. I particularly liked the survivors’ struggle to keep their humanity while the darkness continues to descend.
Many self publishing authors have taken the ‘crank them out’ approach. This is not one of those books; it is clear AJ Powers has crafted this story and book over several years. Do not be surprised if you stay up extra late to finish As the Ash Fell in one sitting.
The author, AJ Powers, is very successful in his world building and also at developing a set of believable characters that exist there. I found myself completely invested in Clay's story and eager to see it's outcome, so much so that I read the last half in one sitting. For me the theme of this story seems focused on the decisions we make in life, good or bad, and their end results. At one point in the book Clay relates to a boy a story about two wolves, one good and one evil, living inside all of us and how the decisions we make in our everyday lives determine which wolf grows strongest. This small detail in the book resonates with me and surfaces throughout the book as characters struggle through tough choices while trying to keep their humanity. There's an undercurrent of hope and positivity running though out this story that I rarely find in books these days and it made the whole experience more enjoyable.
I highly recommend the book and look forward to reading whatever the author writes next.
