Publisher's Summary

Hundreds of years after the United States is turned into a radioactive, zombie-infested wasteland, the descendants of peacekeeping troops stranded abroad are now the world's marshals, keeping law and order in a futuristic landscape of high-tech feudalism and raw, bioorganic metal. They are known simply as: The Americans.

The exciting sidequel to Dead Mech takes you on a hellride through Europe, Asia, and beyond as American Ghost Heather Walton must save her family, her friends, and an all-important cargo, as all Americans struggle to maintain their place in a world where the powers that be no longer want them. And will stop at nothing to put an end to their standing and their very existence!

Haven't read or heard Dead Mech? Not a problem! The Americans is a stand-alone novel that takes place at the same time as the events in Dead Mech. Experience either one first, then get ready for the third and final book in the Apex Trilogy, Metal and Ash.

    "A stylistic side step, a great sequel!"
    What did you love best about The Americans?

    While the book is a sequel to Jake Bible's Dead Mech it is a very different book. It is told in a more conventional style than the first book and it deals with a very different part of the world than the original.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Americans was as much about the characters interactions with one another as it is about the action. I felt very invested in the characters emotionally... and that includes the villains.


    What about Julie Hoverson’s performance did you like?

    Like in Dead Mech, her characters felt right to how I had envisioned them when reading them. Also her slightly deranged gleeful description of the action is entirely on point for this story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I actually did have a few moments where I teared up... but much more often I was laughing gleefully.


    Any additional comments?

    A Very good second book to the trilogy well told.
