James Rockwell and his family are on an island off the coast of Portland, Maine when an explosion sends a tsunami their way. Realizing that no one will come to their aid they seek higher ground until they can find a way home. After leaving the island they discover that civilization has dissolved into chaos that threatens their lives at every turn.
Abrahams first novella in the Pilgrimage Series, Crossing: A Perseid Collapse Novella, is a Kindle Worlds spinoff from Steven Konkoly’s “The Perseid Collapse Series”. It is very well done and follows Konkoly’s timeline. The characters are as real as they get. The family make heart-stopping mistakes that keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the story. The emotions tug at you as you read about their struggles with the new reality that surrounds them.
The story is fast paced and gritty. It is a good beginning to the Rockwell’s journey. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series.
5 out of 5 stars.
