Publisher's Summary

A nuclear attack. A collapsing society. A world covered in ash.

The Alt Apocalypse is the newest groundbreaking series from Tom Abrahams.

It explores survival under the most extreme circumstances, but with a twist (and no cliff-hangers).This series, which can be listened to in any order, features the same core characters in each complete story. But every book dunks them into a new alternate apocalypse: a nuclear holocaust, an earthquake, a flood, a wildfire, a hurricane, a plague, and even zombies. 

Different heroes will emerge in each novel. Different characters will survive and perish. Your favorite character dies in one book? He or she will be back in the next. In the end you'll unwind the loose thread that connects every character and every stand-alone story.  

In Lit, Abrahams tells the story of a couple on a camping trip to the Angeles National Forest, a Los Angeles firefighter, a lonely fry cook, and a group of college students who struggle to escape and survive in Southern California after an unprecedented outbreak of wild and urban fires.

Can they escape the flames? Will they become heroes or run from danger? What will it take to end a fiery hell on earth?

Very interesting premise

I loved seeing how the same characters from Ash dealt with this different apocalyptic scenario. I’m used to reading series, so it’s a different mindset for me to have this story be a stand alone (within this setting anyway), but I’m enjoying it and look forward to seeing how this premise develops. If you think about it, it makes sense that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, and therefore, would have a better skill set for certain disasters over others. Tom Abraham’s does a great job expanding on the characters’ personalities; I saw some of them in a new light and have a better grasp of who they are now. With Lit centering around various fires creating numerous emergency situations, there is plenty of action and movie pieces that kept me listening straight through. Kevin Pierce does a fantastic job portraying the emotions of the book throughout his performance. He creates a tone of suspense, fear and shock, when appropriate, adding to the way the story resonates with you.

Loving this series so far.

My second book in this series so far. I read Ash a month or two ago. It is fun to see the same characters in differing situations. This is a great premise for a series, to place the same cast of characters in various apocalyptic situations and seeing what kinds of decisions. I’m very curious to know more about the Getty Bunker.

Kevin Pierce always, always always delivers.
Give this series a chance.

Good Addition to Unique Series

I like the premise of this series. Putting the same characters in a different disaster situation allows the author to bother explore the characters as well as the different facets of disaster.
This particular event is particularly relevant as many fires rage in both California and Oregon as I write this. None of the characters in the book are prepared for the fires through both lack of situational awareness and denial.
The variety of characters go through different levels of disaster depending on their proximity to the fire and location. Overall the book portrays well the reactions and consequences of a localized disaster, and is a good reminder that a disaster can happen to a world, country, state, city or just you.
Kevin Pierce continues to provide a solid voice to this series, and his narration is on target.

Lit

Although I enjoyed this audio book, the story didn't grab me like the first book Ash. I do like how some the other characters from the previous book have more of a story line. Also, I like that the emotional baggage and/or character traits carry over from the first book. The narrator did an outstanding job as usual. I received this audio book for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

Hell on Earth

Lit is the second book in the Alt Apocalypse series by Tim Abrahams. This series is an interesting experiment in that each book in the series is a stand alone novel of survival that takes the same characters but drops them into a different 'apocalypse' in each volume. It's a cool idea for because we'll get to see the world get destroyed in so many different.

In Lit we don't have a massive world spanning apocalypse but rather a more intimate/personal apocalypse in that Tom sets California on fire and the book tells the tale of how multiple groups attempt to survive the blaze. And given how real the threat of massive fires are I think the story will resonate with many readers.

As always Kevin Pierce delivers an excellent performance. As far as I'm concerned Kevin is THE voice of survival fiction. He never disappoints.

great addition

I love the concept of this series, alternate apocalypses with consistent characters. This book was just as good as the first and I love seeing what the characters do in each situation.

Best book he has written so far!

I really liked this book. To me living in SOCAL, it just seemed to real, and that made it scary. It about So Cal being on fire from a wildfire, pretty much in the heart of Los Angles. and lets face it, that happens all the time in the summer. Will you be ready?

but other then that, this is my fav book outta the 2 in this series so far. I really am really waiting for the next one now!
two thumbs up! keep up the good work!

As always KP. did a stellar job

I Flew Through This Like A Wildfire

Lit, the second book in the Alt Apocalypse series by Tom Abrahams throws some of the same characters into a totally new situation.  What I like the most about the series as a whole so far is that you find new heroes and new favorites in each and every book. 

When watching the wildfires this year in California and other regions - I often wondered why fire wasn't as often covered in post-apocalyptic books. I've read a few where it was just one of the problems - but none where it was the main issue that people were dealing with. Whether it came from a bomb or just from an errant campfire it is definitely something that threatens human life and can make living terribly difficult.

There's something about the familiarity with a character that makes curveballs so hard to see coming.  Someone who was strong in book one might not be able to cope in book two. A fire might totally destroy a stockpile where an EMP would have no effect on it.  I just love that about these books.  I feel like Abrahams is onto something here and I hope that a whole new group of people read these and get interested in the Post-Apocalyptic genre.

Lit itself was something that I could not put down. I voraciously read it over a 24 hour period - only stopping to sleep and work.  I started it the night it was released and finished it later the next day before I went to bed (yes, I stayed up to finish it).

The way that the first was written about made it so believable.  The characters (selfish and selfless ones, I won't call anyone out specifically) mostly did what you would expect but Abrahams wrote it in such a way that it still made me emotional when bad things happened.

I didn't wanna point any one person or group out - but the way that Abrahams wrote about the wildfire firefighters in Lit made me proud to support his work.  He knows that these brave men and women go out there and literally jump into the fire to try and save others.  He wrote about them in such a way that you felt like you knew them but also felt relieved they were on your side. 

The worst part about this book is that I want to read the other ones even more.  When I finished the first book, I knew it was good and I knew that I enjoyed it.  But now that I know how the series is with two books out - I cannot wait for Torrent to come out.  Water is the most destructive force on the planet.  I can't wait to see how that one works out. 

Overall, I loved the one.  It pulled me in from the opening scene (a fire surrounding a campsite) to the very last scene (I won't mention what happened, but I literally sighed relief like it was a real thing). We are in for something amazing with this series. I requested a copy of this book - it has not affected my review in any way.

Not the character development used to by author

I wanted to like this book. I didn’t.
This series looks to be good so don’t base it on this book.
Let’s start in the positive. Great idea having a set of characters in different situations over several books. This one is very realistic- Forest and city fires in S California. Many could argue that this could happen much easier than an EMP, super virus or CME.
The imagery of the fire and the firemen and women was great. 5 stars. You feel like you are in the middle of that inferno. The fire was the main character of this book for me.
I liked several of the characters in the first book Ash but they didn’t hit home in this book. There was a lot of characters for a 5 hour book. Too many I think.
I willl get the Next book in the series which I think is about a flood.
