Editorial Reviews


"In the near future, 98 percent of the Earth's population has been wiped out by a virus developed by the Chinese that was inadvertently unleashed onto the world. In the Pacific Northwest, one man, math professor Graham Morgan, finds the will to live. 
Having lived through the nightmarish experience of watching his pregnant wife wither away and die, Morgan is now faced with the task of burying his beloved father. All alone in a world increasingly ruled by wild animals--and ruthless human predators--Morgan's goal of making it to an old family cabin deep in the wilderness near a secluded lake is complicated when a dying woman leaves her 5-year-old son at his feet just before she dies. Morgan's journey with the boy takes more than a few unexpected turns as they travel through the dangerous wasteland of what was once civilization. By the time they reach their destination, his group (which now includes 15-year-old twin girls whom Morgan courageously saved from the clutches of a madman) must come to grips with their new reality: Winter is coming, supplies are running out, and there may be a gang of killers living across the lake. Powered by adept character development and relentless pacing, this post-apocalyptic novel, the first in a series...makes for a page-turning, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it reading experience. ...readers will find Morgan to be an endearing hero at world's end.
The beginning of what could be a riveting apocalyptic saga." -Kirkus Review

"The China Pandemic is a post-apocalyptic tale the initially hinges around Graham Morgan, a sturdy, even-keeled survivor of a lethal, quick-killing pandemic that sweeps 98% of the world's population off the map in the span of weeks. Graham has just buried his wife and father, finding himself without purpose, until a gift is bestowed upon him--the unexpected stewardship of a young child. With the promise to guard the child "like his own" recently forged, Graham departs on a journey to reach his family's empty lake house in the rural Northwest, and the perceived safe haven of a secluded locale. 

Needless to say, his journey and the following trials are not for the faint of heart. A.R. Shaw strikes a nice balance between menace and the post-apocalyptic environment that would ensue after 98% of the people essentially disappeared. Supplies are still available, to include food, medicine, and essential materials, and there's an unnerving quiet blanketing the landscape. Very unsettling, because getting to those supplies often proves dangerous, and as a reader, you will cringe any time Graham's crew sets out to scavenge. Shaw adds an unexpected, and often overlooked threat in this story...I won't spoil it for you. 

Shaw also embeds a high degree of survivalist realism. Emergency first-aid is featured prominently (not for the squeamish) while home remedies and extensive survival craft is solidly locked around the framework of an exciting, fast-paced story. Fast paced, but not exhausting. A.R. Shaw gives you plenty of breathers, filled with raw human emotion and well-crafted dialogue. Graham's expanded crew spends a balanced amount of time cramped into tight quarters, and Shaw fleshes this out perfectly. But don't get comfortable in the warm confines of the cabin, because just when you let your guard down...let's just say that the author is not afraid to put her characters in harm's way.

Overall, a thoroughly post-apocalyptic novel, with solid character development, realistic settings, and a well-balanced pace. I highly recommend it."

- Steven Konkoly, bestselling author of The Perseid Collapse, The Jakarta Pandemic, and Fractured State.
A. R. Shaw has written a finely tuned, beautifully woven story of survival and redemption.

Her characters, most notably Graham, are carefully constructed and real. One feels their pain, their struggles, and sympathizes with their difficult choices as they navigate a disease-ridden world.

She builds the story methodically, carefully giving the reader a forward moving narrative while, at the same time, offering just enough of a hint at their worlds as they once existed to frame their individual plot lines.

Shaw's voice is clear is consistent throughout the story. She writes with a language that wonderfully complements the novel's setting, the Pacific Northwest.

This is a fantastic first story of a well-received epic that stands among the finest character-driven post apocalyptic novels. -  Tom Abrahams, Author of The Traveler Series

From the Author

Hello Readers,
Below is the reading order for Graham's Resolution
  1. The China Pandemic
  2. The Cascade Preppers
  3. The Last Infidels
  4. The Malefic Nation
  5. The Bitter Earth, coming soon!
I thoroughly enjoyed writing this series. I believe it's as realistic as you can get to possible events so much so, I scared even myself at the possibilities.
I was asked if I plan to stick with the post-apocalyptic genre. I'm not sure. I like the idea of crossing several genres and technically The China Pandemic is not only a Dystopian, it also qualifies as a Medical Thriller as well as a Technothriller. It could even cross over into Action Adventure. I intend to write what's within me and I hope you enjoy the reads. 
Below are my other published works.
  1. Deception on Durham Road for Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds
  2. Departure from Durham Road for Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds
  3. Kate's Redemption for Wayward Pines Kindle Worlds
  4. The French Wardrobe: A Novel
  5. Surrender the Sun: Bishop's Honor
  6. Surrender the Sun: Sanctuary
