"Reading about Leo Nix's background as a psychologist who has worked in the prison system, and education helps explain how he has been the insight into personalities to craft such realistic characters for this compelling Apocalyptic novel. It was a fabulous bonus for me to discover that much of this story takes place in the Australian desert--which is a location I'm familiar with and love. As I read, it was clear Leo Nix also knows the country and its people. This passed my local knowledge critique. It's a great story." Reggie
"Having lived for some years in the Northern Territory I approached reading this book with a degree of uncertainty. It isn't easy to capture that area or its old timers with reality and understanding. Leo Nix does so with such clarity that I was intstantly pulled into the story. The characters were Territorians, from the rum to the rollies (hand rolled cigarettes). What an unforgettable bunch of people gathering together and fighting, each in their own way, for the group's survival! I loved them all. I had no trouble with the language, it was just right. Although there could've been a few more "eh"s in there. I cried over Shamus, what a brilliant tactician! I hope people are not put off by the Aussieisms and read an exceptional apocalyptic novel, set in one of the most awe inspiring places in the world. A fantastic read!" Kay M
"It's tough to come up with an original apocalyptic premise but this author succeeded. As we all know, religious fundamentalism is rampant and often terrifying these days.
The characters are well developed, the action is intense and I was so impressed with the amount of details...so important when it comes to a book like this. If the reader knows the writer has done their homework it never feels like they're just going through the motions. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author in the future!" Jim M
"Wasn't sure what to expect from this book as this was my first by this author. Very captivating and hard to put down when bedtime rolls around! Definitely worth the money and be ready to have a new favorite author." Patricia F
"I really liked this book, set in the Australian outback, a curious cast of characters who all have to work together to survive a really great read." Staple
"I found that I was invested in the group and main characters. The plot was good, the main characters realistic and well developed, the timeline was stable. I am keen for the next book, it was a very good read. I especially loved Pedro and Sundown. It was a shame Shamus did not last but with him popping up every now and then it's good, not just another lost character.I also liked Shadow, she come across as a strong independent women. The other female characters contributed to the story with strength and ability." Johnny DL
"I really enjoyed the different setting in Australia and I loved the characters and the twist of Sundown. I'm really looking forward to the next two books. I can hardly wait to find out what happens to my friends." Caroline MJ
"I enjoyed the book. It kept me entertained. I liked the assortment of characters and hope book 2
is a continuation." Baraptor
"The story was fast paced, easy to follow and did not require one to suspend disbelief to really get into it. The characters and their dialogue are complex, realistic and believable. Book 1 ended in a good spot since the storyline of this novel was resolved. Potential for follow-on books was presented and interest in future chapters of Sundown's story was laid down. All-in-all, Sundown Apocalypse was a great read and I heartily suggest you pick it up." Dan C.
