Editorial Reviews

Review

AN AMAZON TOP 10 BEST SELLER!
"Branham is an adept writer, and the world he has created is thoroughly planned and well-executed...the relentless pacing of this story, which rarely pauses from the action or relishes in the monotony of life after civilization's breakdown, keeps the reader engaged throughout. By placing an entire family at the center of his novel, the author makes every challenge feel that much more dangerous. The book concludes with a brief excerpt from a forthcoming sequel, so hopefully readers can expect more adventures in Branham's fearsome wasteland. A fast-paced post-apocalyptic tale of survival and family." Kirkus Reviews.

"Parched holds several surprises; not the least of which is its ultimate direction. Readers used to the typical linear progression of many apocalyptic reads will find something unique and special in Parched: highly recommended for any who want a powerful thriller with a strong environmental message." Midwest Book Review--Diane Donovan, Editor/Senior Reviewer.

"There is a constant urgency and energy in the writing that makes it difficult to put down. The most powerful parts of this story are when the lines of morality begin to blur in the family's quest for survival. This resilient family always seems to be running away from something, narrowly escaping danger, and eking by to survive - it was exhausting just reading about their life on the run! At its core, Parched is about hope and survival against all odds, and the personal demons we must face when our bodies and minds are pushed to the limit. However, the underlying message is that the bonds of family, morality, and humanity can be bent, but never broken." Self-Publishing Review, 4 stars.

"The story is taut and inventive and Branham makes some bold narrative choices, the stakes are high and no one is safe. With shifts in perspective each character is made sympathetic and three dimensional. PARCHED sets the stage for a suspenseful saga with well-crafted characters and numerous conflicts yet to be resolved." Indie Reader 4 Stars

"The novel presents a deeply intriguing scenario, and Branham's writing serves it well. Parched is likely to appeal to fans of AMC's The Walking Dead, as it creates a similar scenario where no one is safe. Readers who reach the book's cliffhanger ending are likely to want more; Branham promises two sequels that carry the family's quest to fruition." BlueInk Review

"A gripping thriller that vividly and creatively brings the potential terrors of climate change to life, Parched is an engaging and immensely believable novel that captivated me with every twist and turn of its plot." Jacky Donovan, author of Amazon bestseller Simon Ships Out: How One Brave, Stray Cat Became a Worldwide Hero.

"First of Andrew's books that I've read (so far). Loved the story! Had me on the edge of my seat for most of it. Can't wait for Part Two!" Debra Ann Galvan.

"I thoroughly enjoyed this story about one family's journey through a world that we would not comprehend in order to survive. Their strength, love for one another, and their desire to make it in a world where resources that we take for granted every day are more valuable than hitting Fort Knox, is inspiring. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a riveting story to capture and hold their attention." Diane Day.

From the Author

Thank you very much for buying my book, Parched. I am delighted that you have taken the time to read this novel. Other than providing a good story - I am hoping that the book delivers a message about the power of nature and extreme climate change. My intent was also to illustrate the message of never giving up and having a culture of acceptance and inclusion. 

I would be very grateful if you would take a moment to write an Amazon review. Reviews are very helpful in helping new authors get the word out about their book. In 2015 I also published a memoir about my very difficult adoption. It is called, Anything for Amelia, and I hope you have the opportunity to read it.
Thank you!

Andrew C. Branham
