A deadly storm transforms the landscape of New York City and the lives of its civilians. The island of Manhattan is under martial law. Neighboring boroughs are isolated without power and communication with the outside world. There is chaos all around. Charles Dudley, a survivor, writes this intimate and disturbing account about personal demons and deadly encounters with treacherous citizens, predatory humanoids, and extraordinary creatures in this end-of-days memoir.

The narrator was the perfect choice for this book. Erik Baker's voice has the right tone and does a fantastic job of bringing Charles Dudley to life.

This writer is a talent unlike any I’ve encountered. His writing evoked a myriad of emotions from me: shock, amazement, fear, revulsion, humor, and admiration.

Author Artie Cabrera has written a highly original view of a dystopian future filled with terror, isolation, and what the writer refers to as Deviants. The Deviants are a type of zombie. I tend to avoid zombie stories, but this is so much more than the typical “I want your brains” plot line.

This book is formatted as the diary of a survivor, Charles Dudley. He is witness to countless horrors and writes about them in a raw unfiltered way, which includes loads of swearing. The language didn’t bother me because that is the way the main character talks and is an integral part of who he is. I look forward to reading more from this original and talented writer.

American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask is that they not be sent into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary.
