Clayton Shepard has successfully landed the Soyuz back on Earth. But, where on Earth? Without contact to either NASA or the Russians he doesn’t know which continent he is on. His primary goal is to get home to his family. Meanwhile, his family is dealing with the beginnings of the worst humanity has to offer in this post-apocalyptic world. Oh, and, another CME is on the way that is as bad or worse than the previous one. That knowledge has set into action the Descent Protocol, a secret quasi-government, near extinction, recovery plan. What does this mean for Clayton and his family and the rest of humanity?
Abrahams’ second novel in The SpaceMan Chronicles, Descent: A Post Apocalyptic Thriller, is even better than the first book. Again, the story is being told from several points of view to give a complete picture of what is happening. We learn more about Clayton as he begins to doubt the choices he made that brought him to this place in his life. His wife, Jackie, and her neighbors discover that survival is in their own hands. This fast paced novel kept my heart racing as one obstacle after another kept delaying Clayton’s progress and challenged his family’s safety.
This is a must read. You may find, as I did, that you have to read it straight through without stopping.
5 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.
