The USA is attacked by nuclear warheads, and southern California is a prime target. A handful of survivors scattered throughout the area find different ways to cope with the new reality. Fate will bring them together. Not all for the good.
Abrahams first novel in The Alt Apocalypse series, Ash chronicles each of their separate stories. It is a very realistic look at life in a nuclear fallout zone. This disaster tests their abilities and their weaknesses. What will happen when they meet up? Who will survive, or will they all perish?
The premise of this series is to put the same characters in different apocalyptic situations. Each book is a stand-alone story. It is a very new way to examine human nature. I look forward to the rest of the series. Well, except for the zombie one. I hate zombies.
5 out of 5 stars, especially for originality.
