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.

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.

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.

Shot of adrenaline needed!

Hell Week is a bit of a humdrum roller coaster ride. The prologue begins with an interesting introduction describing a virus that has eliminated 96% of North America’s adult population, leaving the young to survive on their own. From that point the story devolves into a series of conversations between characters on what to do and where to go. Unfortunately, the action did not pick up until late in the story when another group of survivors appeared to rescue our hapless youngsters. This new fledgling militia group of sorts began to turn the story around renewing my interest once again. Perhaps the next volume will carry on this breath of fresh air. Three.point.five for a second chance. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

It's the end of America

I love post apocalyptic books, movies, comic, everything. That's why I decided to review this book. I knew going in that there was no zombies or aliens, which I have to admit made me a little sad. Because I LOVE zombies and aliens. Especially zombies.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this book. It didn't feel like all the other post apocalyptic stuff I've seen out there--which believe me is a good thing. A very good thing. The main character was very likable and found myself rooting for him and hoping he would get away.

I'm not going to spoil it, but let me just say that I'm happy he didn't portray all of the bad guys (the race) as bad. I appreciate it because when I figured out what was going on I became a little concerned!

I only have one teeny tiny criticism of the book and that's it ended sort of suddenly. I thought it could go on for another a few hours at least. Anyway, I'll read the next one for sure and I'd recommend you get this too if you're into the same books as I am!

rip off

what a total waste of money. The entire setireis should be one price. They take 3 short stories and sell each one them at the same prices as a book

Solid

I expected maybe a dumbed down apocalypse story since it followed kids but was pleasantly surprised that it was mature but still ok for a younger audience.

Surprisingly good

Full disclosure: I received a free copy in exchange for this review. However, this is my unbiased opinion.

This book is so much better than I thought it would be. There's a lot of bad writing (usually mixed with paranoid conservative politics) in the apocalyptic fiction genre. That's not the case here.

The characters are well drawn and believable. The story moves at a good pace. It never gets stale. Just when you start to get comfortable a twist is thrown at the characters.

The narration was great as well. The author doesn't sound like a mindless drone like so many do.

I'm dying to see what comes next in this series!

Hell Week

This was a pretty good YA book and a fast easy listen. There was lots of action and an interesting story, although the book ends rather abruptly.

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.
