PFD

Today starts a review blitz. I will post a review each day for the next seven days. This first books is by E.R. Arroyo.

The end of the world as we know it brought about by the release of an Airborne Viral Hemorrhagic Fever and the human misery brought upon those that survive is the crux of Prep For Doom. Twenty authors collaborate to bring a collection of intertwining short stories together, while each gives a different perspective leading up to the release of the virus and the chaos that ensues after. PFD is fast paced and has a couple of ‘wow’ factor twists. Each of the stories is well written.

While this is a fascinating story telling concept, it left me unfulfilled. There is no protagonist to tie the stories together even though some of the characters showed up again towards the end of the book. Many questions were left unanswered making me wonder if there will be a second book. The story just sort of stopped once it made an important discovery.

I am a big fan of apocalyptic and dystopian genre. Maybe this style of writing, an anthology, isn’t right for me. 3 out of 5 stars.

I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
