Alex Fletcher and his family are on their last vacation of the summer. It’s a family tradition that entails watching the Perseid meteor show. Little did they know that they were going to be in for much more.
Konkoly’s novella prequel to The Perseid Collapse Series, Red Dragon: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller is the perfect introduction to the series. This apocalyptic tale presents to you the actions happening prior to and the beginning of the “event”.
The emotions ranging from desperation to resignation are hard to ignore. It’s a short, fast read that piques your interest immediately. As always, Konkoly delivers!
5 out of 5 stars.
Jake Turner is trying to do the right thing. He wants to have a good life with his wife and children. Since being released on parole, Jake has turned his life around. But, no matter how hard he tries, it seems that the fates conspired against him. By the time he has a run-in with the Fletchers on Dunham Road, Jake is no longer the law-abiding citizen he so desperately wanted to become. His looks and his actions earn him the nickname “Manson”.
Bird’s Kindle Worlds Novella in The Perseid Collapse Series, The Edge of Civility, has got to be the saddest story I’ve ever read. My heart broke while reading this fast-paced tale of strife. I could feel Jake’s pain.
All Jake wanted was to provide for his family and keep them safe from the Jakarta flu virus. What would you have done in similar circumstances?

Imagine waking up only to find yourself without power, working cellphones, or working vehicles. An EMP has neutralized all of the USA. No way to get or give information other than word of mouth in person to your neighbor. That’s what happened to David Collins and his family with one exception. They were prepared. Their vehicles are functional and they have the supplies to evacuate before everything turned chaotic. Will they and their friends make it to the rendezvous point?
Turner’s first venture into writing, EVADE, a Kindle Worlds novella, is part of The Perseid Collapse Series. The setting is in Las Vegas and the Collins family must get to their bugout location as soon as possible. What they encounter along the way will put their survival skills to test. Hard choices have to be made quickly in order to stay alive.
EVADE is a quick, fast-paced read with some heart stopping moments. Turner promises us two more installments. I look forward to reading them as well. 5 out of 5 stars.
