Overview

What happens if the world does not end like it’s supposed to? What if it keeps happening . . . over and over and over? Facing a bleak, unrelenting world, a small group of survivors take refuge in a hotel, eeking out an existence, struggling to survive. Afraid to go outside, the group of people erect cages on the roof of the hotel to stand watch, prepare, and be the eyes of the people inside. Supplies are limited. Morale is low. Hope is at a standstill. And the danger that lies just outside their walls may have found a way in.

Chris Russell
The Bird Cages was an awesome read. From beginning to end, I couldn't wait to see what happened next. I felt like I was in the middle of the story, alongside the characters the whole time. Awesome!
Fleurabeille (Last Name Withheld)
This was a very good read - it held my interest from beginning to end. I engaged with the characters and was drawn into the story. One thing I loved about it was that rather than trying to sound spell Louisiana accents, Mr. Morrison simply wrote the dialogue and allowed the reader to do that in his or her own way. The characters felt like people you know or could know and were real - not caricatures. I highly recommend it.
Nia (Last Name Withheld)
I really enjoyed this story. The author did a great job with character building and the storyline. I remained intrigued through the entire read. Very refreshing and interesting!

From the start The Bird Cages pulled me in. The characters were easy to relate to and the storyline flowed better than expected. This has movie written all over it. I look forward to more from this writer.
