It's the year 2073, and strange things roam the night after a missile attack in Pittsburgh has changed things, well, forever. There are a group of students who have survived, and are forced to leave the confines of their fallout shelter and search for food and assorted whatnot.
They find bizarre creatures, who are in turn looking for victims---er, food---themselves. What follows is a nice story with a lot of twists and turns, and a mystery or two to unravel.
My first thought while reading this book was that it's kind of a cross between The Omen and Sleepwalkers. It's smart, tense, witty, creepy, even a bit erotic. It's a great read; I read the entire 300+ pages in one night.
Good dialogue, excellent mood and setting, some well developed characters, and some nightmarish creatures highlight this absorbing and unusual book. Definitely worth a look.
47% of this book occurs on one night (not day, night). Everyone is running around with whispers and secrets -- when it's time to reveal -- I'll tell you later or meet me later or I don't think you'll like it. C'mon. One of the "secrets" that was kept from the main character was a murder of someone in the refuge. I'd tell you the autopsy results but Amazon wouldn't publish my review due to the contents of the autopsy!! (If that tells you anything) The labor scene just made me laugh uncontrollably. I'm in labor -- hey, how 'bout some narcotics for the pain. I'm in labor -- I want to rub lotion on my tummy so I don't get stretch marks. I'm PUSHING and the doctor says "Hey, how 'bout some coffee?" And leaves. A minor character is stuck on the roof being attacked. His girlfriend tells him at least twenty times to come through the OPEN door and he doesn't. The romance aspects were just corny, corny, corny. One female is carried down the hallway to her room. One does things while her boyfriend is asleep. I'd tell you how some of these things were ACTUALLY phrased but Amazon, as I said, wouldn't allow it.
I'm not a hack, shrill, hater, troll, disgruntled author, sock puppet..... you get the idea.
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
This story was very well written, the characters really had me invested in their story right off the bat, they were very interesting and the story was actually a believable Sci-Fi work of fiction; which for me is rare. I don't give any spoilers in my reviews and I won't here either, but I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes conspiracy theories about the government, scientists who would do almost anything for money and fame and ordinary people who will survive at all costs.
Some of the reviews here have complained about editing errors or jumping from one person's narrative to another character but I found little to no errors and I had no trouble at all figuring out who was the character I was reading about.
I will most definitely be purchasing the two follow up books in this story, but this book can stand alone it is so good. That rarely happens to me also. Usually when a book has sequels the first one ends in a cliffhanger that makes no sense until you read the second book. This first one is GREAT all on it's own!
