Mike, a veteran of Nam, finds himself helping others when a flash in the sky occurs. Mike had been fearing something like this would happen but no one believed him. Luckily, for a small group of youngsters, Mike comes to their aid. He threw the youngest into a bunker and the others followed her.
As you can imagine, quite the scenario unfolds when they get inside the facility. One is a whiner named Mia, Winnie is a youngster approaching her 10th birthday, a "geek" named Gabe, Samantha has a black belt and then there is Ian. Lots of bickering going on until Mike (I call him the Man) steps in and takes control.
I thought it was an interesting story and could well envision the reactions of these youngsters in the bunker!
Mike does have a plan for all of them, however. Will his plan be enough to get them out of the bunker and to safety?
I enjoyed the cast of characters assembled here and the story as it unfolded. Mike is a deeper man than he appears at first and other initial impressions likewise prove to be false over time. I would recommend this book to readers who like their "end of the world" fiction uncluttered by a lot of foul language also gratuitous sex. Also, not a lot of time is wasted trying to uncover the hidden childhood trauma that results in misunderstood gang members "acting out", also known as rape, murder and torture. Sorry, I could not resist that last bit of sarcasm.
I found the book to be quite enjoyable to read, the author developed the characters well and I hope she has another book on this subject matter in the works ... I would gladly recommend this book and look forward to any future works by Amy ...
