Publisher's Summary

No mazes. No zombies. No games.
America Falls

Think North Korea and Russia are the greatest danger to the United States? Think again. After a surprise biological attack, America, the most powerful nation on Earth, quickly succumbs, with 99.91% of the population over the age of 16 decimated. As society unravels, and the ground invasion of his country begins, loner Isaac Race must form a connection with a ragtag group of survivors and elude not only the invaders, but other dangers and threats unleashed in chaotic Post-America.

Hell Week is the first installment of America Falls, a post-apocalyptic survival series, a compelling, action-packed story about who we are and who we have to become in order to survive.

This book/series was originally published as After Days and has been re-written and re-branded to embrace the author's original intentions of creating a compelling episode-driven adventure. For lovers of books by Jack Hunt, Bobby Akart, AR Shaw, Chris Pike, Ryan Westfield, Harley Tate, and Mike Sheridan.

Just misses the mark for great

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I think the book overall was really good even though it was a little hard to get into at the beginning. It got better as the book went on and I will definitely pick up the next one in the series.

Good, but half a book

Generally speaking, I thought the book was good. Though, some of the dialogue was a bit clunky. Not sure if that is because of how it was written, or because of the narrator.

A different approach to the end of the world

This book was extremely interesting. It started out as a story of an orphan and ended with a flu that kills most adults. The book gives the back story of the hero and starts a roller coaster ride until it stops on top of a hill for the next book.

I was given this book in exchange for a honest review.

Post Bio-Attack Fun

America Falls is an interesting combination of young adult themes (old people dying off), and post apocalyptic bio-terrorism. It's after a catastrophic event that we join our main character as he joins with a group of other teens to figure out how to stay alive. It's frenetic in its action, horrific in its setting, and unfortunately a little narrow in it's scope. The author says this was originally a long book and it feels like that, where it reaches an arbitrary point and ends and you want it to go just a little bit longer and get somewhere. But that's a relatively minor concern, as it gets everywhere very fast, and one would assume the follow up would be just as quick.

Narration is solid, and aids in the telling and the dramatic presentation of this work.

Great but felt unfinished

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a very entertaining audio book about America as it falls apart due to a biological attack. It is written well and the narration is very engaging. The story is set up really well and had a very "real" feel to it. That being said, it felt like it just ends. I get this is book 1 of a trilogy, but I didn't feel like this book ended at a stoping point in the story, it just sort of stops. I definitely am engaged enough in this story that I want to continue it.

A Good read / listen

Fatal Reaction, Survival. The virus that wipes out nearly all adults and leaves under seventeens alive would be a total apocalypse, so adding a Chinese invasion of America is just over icing the cake!
The book is well written, is quite fast paced with a lot of action and a huge amount of emotion and teenage angst. It is an entertaining read/listen and is highly suited to a YA readers.An entertaining listen/read
Adam's narration is great.

Pretty good for the genre

A decent take on Red Dawn with smaller children. The start of the book is strong and logical which is refreshing in this genre. The kids are a little too smart for their age and their maturity under the circumstances would help with a little longer story. The passage of time in this book is hard to gauge. There seems to be a central focus to point the series forward but not sure if it'll take the Red Dawn approach of just establishing a foothold from invaders or if there will be some grander plan. Overall, a good invasion/America under attack story. Final Grade - B-

A good gripping tale

I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

I was actually quite surprised by this one, the story gripped me quite quickly as the narrator set the scene and then things started happening. Its a story that's very close to home considering the current climate and is current enough to include Trump and Kim Jong Un's little argument.

The characters are good and the story progresses well with a good sense of suspense at the right moments, the ending is a little abrupt rather than being a cliffhanger but it still leaves it all open nicely for book 2.

Narration was good, the narrator showed good emotion and did some good voices for the characters and his tone fit the story well.

Enjoyed this one.
