While this book hasn't done all of the above . . . yet. It is the foreshadowing that is taking place in this "Part 1." I will admit, I've purchased "Part 2" and that is the reason I've awarded four stars to a manuscript that is short on plot . . . so far.
Coral, a young university student, is camping at a cave when the disaster occurs, which is what saves her from the firestorm. Alone, little food or water, too much heat and dust to leave the cave for days. When she does make it out, there is only ash and dust.
I've read a couple of the author's other books and liked both better, but this one is decent. I expect I don't like it as well because it's a two-part story. Maybe. I also don't know what happened, which is perhaps the author trying to make the reader identify more with the characters?
Results: pretty well written, only a couple of major characters. Not a must-read, but not a waste of time.
I didn't give it five stars because it is the first book in a trilogy, and this book is relatively short. I just think the three books could have been combined into two books or possibly even one thick one. I don't spend money mindlessly and it irritates me to have to buy three short books. But this book was good, and so I am going to buy the next two immediately. I wouldn't do that if this book wasn't that good.
If you don't like cliffhangers, don't buy Book 1. It leaves you hanging, for sure.
I am appalled that this was a mere .99 cents. Seriously it is criminal. I have read other books with far far less to offer at three times the price.
I believe that this is a self published book and let me assure you that this is not, by any means typical.
This author obviously takes pride in their work and can spell( thank you), and writes with great imagination and depth without being overbearing or pedantic.
This is one talented author we should be keeping our eye on. I am looking forward to reading your other disaster themed books. If the first installment of Gray is any indication you seem to have a knack for this genre!
