InD'tale Magazine--November 2014 Issue: Five Stars and a Crowned Heart!

"...Mr. Harris keeps one on the edge of their seat throughout this apocalyptic young adult story. "The Last Orphans" shows a terrifyingly realistic view of what could happen...  ...This story is a great start to an excellent series and will have readers begging and pleading for more!"

About the Author

Born at the end of the Vietnam war and raised on a horse farm near small town north Georgia, his imagination evolved under the swaying pines surrounding his family's log home. On summer days that were too hot, winter days that were too cold, and every night into the wee morning hours, he read books. He lives in sunny southern California with his beautiful wife and two perfect children.

This is the first time I have been completely swayed just by a cover of a book. So you can judge a book by its cover sometimes, it worked for me!
I was right to go on instinct wow what a fab read and another alternative twist on zombie reads.

The animals have turned on all adults over the world from cows, horses, dogs right down to killer bees, rats and cockroaches, so if your over 18 just step away from your cute kitten or sleeping puppy right now...slowly now...shush no quick movements!

Sixteen year old Shane Tucker's day couldn't get any worse. His Grans funeral in the morning, arguing with his father and walking out by lunchtime; the skies turning an eerie green and the death of millions of adults over the world...killed by the wildlife and pets around them...leaving all the children of the world to fend for themselves "what a day" is a complete understatement!

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book being a passionate animal lover as I was guessing it would involve having to kill many cute furry animals; but it was tastefully written and most of the damage was already done...most...I said most!

Shane finds some of his friends who band together to take care of the smaller kids and try to find help and whats going on.

Mr Harris's creative mind gave this unique plot a refreshing twist by bringing in a doomsday machine, Dr Who, Thunderbirds and James Bond style. But its not as easy as just unplug it...oh no people...its in the basement of a government building armed and dangerous and if that's not all...did I mention they are on a time limit...of course they are...!

Find the Doomsday machine...check.
Get past sadistic gangs...check.
Avoid killer robots...check.

OHMAIGAWD THIS BOOK! I love, love, love post-apocalyptic style books, and was so excited that I found this one. While I adore zombies, plagues, and all the usual methods of arriving at "the end of the world", I was overjoyed to find a unique take on the trip with The Last Orphans.

You don't have a chance to breathe! Everything happens fast and hard, and I found myself gripping my Kindle, eyes wide and holding my breath. I was so lost in the story that I forgot to put it down until I was finished, except to message some reader friends to say "OHMAIGAWD!". You're speeding along with the characters, wondering what's going to happen next, when BAM! The author, who I imagine twirling a villain style mustache and cackling evilly, says "Wait, dear reader! I need a moment to rip your heart out and make you watch as I stomp on it!" Tears, I tell you!

This is going on my re-read list, as well as my top 10 for this year. I can't wait for the next installment, I'm going to be going crazy wondering what happens next!

The Last Orphans by Neil W Harris
Published by Clean Teen Publishing
Reviewed by Author Holly Newhouse for Eternal Book Reviews

I cannot begin to rave enough about this book!!! Being asked to read this amazing and fascinating book is a dream come true for this reviewer! I just could not put it down!
Knowing first hand the great amount of work that goes into the writing of a book, editing it and editing some more until it becomes not only your masterpiece but your very soul becomes part of it and that is clearly seen in this magnificent book and is written by an equally amazing and masterful storyteller!
This fantastic fast paced book begins with the world thrown into chaos as everyone over 18 is killed or destroyed by animals, insects, etc... in nature. You meet Shane, a teenage boy as shell shocked as any seasoned soldier who has lived through the trauma of war. Through his vow to keep the girl of his dreams and her little sister safe from harm, an unwilling yet true leader emerges out of the chaos to take control and lead over seventy kids through a world that has basically become a war zone. He almost losing it himself in order to save the lives of the others in his quest to lead those he is in charge of, to safety.
This amazing author is extremely well written and the editor has done a tremendous job as well with this book. The character development is superb and the plot as well as the storyline, oh my goodness, it is extremely realistic, fascinating and flows beautifully throughout the whole book! The descriptions are vivid and give just enough detail to incite the imagination but not too much as to be overdone.

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Scott

The adolescent market is one of the hardest book categories to break into, and The Last Orphans is a good demonstration of why. Combining the “fantasy land” of a world of adolescents without adults, a sinister plot and a healthy dose of Stephen King’s The Stand thrown in, the book has a “railroading” feel to it, pushing the reader along a linear plot with no underlying subplots that could have made the book a little more three-dimensional.

When animals turn on adults, and adults turn on each other, the last orphans, a ragged teenage and younger band of survivors from Leeville, Georgia, begin their journey into a world without anyone over the age of 18. The plot proceeds in a linear fashion from start until end, eschewing subplots and side stories, for a straight action read. The book reveals a little more of the world surrounding the small town existence of these kids to the glowing neon of Atlanta, ever so slowly showing the ravage first on a small personal world then to the wide scale panoramic vision of the world.

The survival horror genre is a place this book certainly belongs. The trials and tribulations of Shane, Kelly, Tracy and others fit neatly in this trope. Suddenly, without adults to protect them, they have to often fight for their place in the world, usually out of necessity, often as a last resort. They see so much disturbing things, that the reader is propelled out of sheer desire to see how far their coping mechanisms hold out. They are pushed along following the traditional five act play all the way to the sinister climax and a denouement that paves the way for the next book in the series.
