Overview

First the asteroid would come, slamming into the earth just north of the Montana border, followed by earthquakes, tsunamis, and unending night.

And after that . . . Hell.

Astronomer Marty Chittenden is the first to recognize the approaching doom—a discovery that makes him a marked man.

Green Beret Jack Forrest knows the catastrophe is inevitable, and begins stockpiling an abandoned missile silo with supplies while gathering together a small community of men, women, and children he prays can survive the apocalypse.

Then disaster strikes. In an instant the world they know ends forever, transformed into a nightmare realm of eternal darkness. Soon the few remaining humans are transformed as well, becoming savage things—raping, pillaging, and devouring their own.

And the time is approaching when Forrest and his people will have to leave their underground "Noah's Ark" to face a shattered world and the unspeakable terrors that dwell there—in desperate pursuit of one slim hope of survival . . . called Hawaii.

Editorial Reviews

Alternative Worlds
“What makes Thomas Koloniar’s superb thriller work is the focus is on good people trying to survive in bad times . . . this is an exhilarating tale of life before and after a NEO crash rivaling what happened to the dinosaurs.”
SF Revu online magazine
“Very well written for a first novel and the basic concept definitely produces a page turner. The overall feel is of high adventure with a moderate amount of tension, where you are never quite sure what is going to happen next . . . Recommended.”
My Bookish Ways
“Cannibal Reign is a scary, nonstop thrill ride into the dark hearts of man, shot through with the souls of those that refuse to surrender to the dark. I loved this book, and fans of post apocalyptic fiction and thrillers should not miss it!”
Journey of a Bookseller
“You’ll run the full gamut of emotions . . . the psychological implications are haunting. And you’ll be thinking of this book for a long while after you set it down and go on to another. ”
SF Revu online Magazine
"Very well written for a first novel and the basic concept definitely produces a page turner. The overall feel is of high adventure with a moderate amount of tension, where you are never quite sure what is going to happen next . . . Recommended."
Suzanne Johnson
“A gripping story . . . a chilling, frightening tale that was hard to put down.”

    I was stunned on how good this book was for a first time author.

    I was stunned on how good this book was for a first time author. The monsters in this book are the people like you and me that are desperate to survive in an almost impossible situation. I am not affiliated to the author in any way but if you like a nightmarish suspenseful ride, then this book is for you.

    I really like how Koloniar fleshed out the characters and made you really care about them. The book is action packed and backed up by what might happen if a large asteroid hit the earth.

    I am looking forward to more from this author.

    Not great

    I'm a bit puzzeled by the rave reviews for this book. All I have to say is that they must have all been left by men. The author has some seriously sexist and narrow-minded views of women. I am by no means a feminist (stay-at-home mom), but even I was blown-away but the weak female characters in this book. They were simply there to cook and spread their legs for the men, deferring to them to make all the important decisions and perfectly happy to stay ignorant and let the big strong men take care of them. What's worse is that the only strong woman in the story was a lesbian! (Oh, and all the women were just gorgeous.)
    In addition to that, there was just very little character developement. I cared very little about any of the characters, and what's more is that they seemed to care very little about each other. When someone died it was glossed over so quickly and the other characters barely acknowknledged it, making it impossible to actually feel drawn in to this world.
    The writing was mediocre at best. I've read some self-published books recently that were better written and developed than this.
    Overall, i'm just glad that i only had to pay $3 for it.

    Very disappointed

    I'm a big fan of post apocalyptic fiction. I was excited about the book's premise. I noted a bit of the author's leaning to the left philosophy, but I kept reading. I had to stop when I got to the part where facing the impending impact of an NEO, the astronomer demands to go on tv and renounce our profit based society stating that if we had lived in a resource based society the asteroid threat would have been eliminated a month previous instead of being a allowed to hit the earth. No explanations of how that was possible especially since the asteroid was not spotted ontil it was deemed to be too late to stop itby others in the book. I do not like to write bad reviews but this was ridiculous. I usually give books away to others even if I don't like something with the ideas that maybe a book will appeal to someone else, this book went straight to the trash.

    An amazing view of what could be in the event of a global disaster. The "Omega Man" of our generation. A must read for anyone interested in a post-apocalyptic world, or more importantly, a world where one must survive at any cost. GET IT!

    Fantastic book - how refreshing to read an adult dystopian novel, and one written by a man no less! Well written, relatable characters, and a gritty look at what the world might turn into if faced with the end of life as we know it. Highly recommend this book!

    No punches pulled

    Brutally good book. It strips down the fuzzy feel good parts of a post apocalyptic america, and remindes you that people are animals too.

    Fast-paced and very enjoyable

    Enjoy the genre, this one could be a suspense novel as well as a survival or apocalypse story, definitely better than most. Believable plot, good characters, and doesn't go overboard with the prepping or survival details. An entertaining story, thought well enough of it to write my first review

    Great start keep them coming

    Very gruff, visceral novel, good plotting and characters. Don't understand some of the complaints of sexist writing in some of the reviews, several strong female characters and believable situations given the setting. Excited for the next book in the series

    I truly enjoyed this book. It was a great read. The action and characters were well done, the plot was well thought out and interesting, and the pace of the book was great.. I really liked the characters and the multiple plot lines and I thought the author did a great job of always moving the story forward. Never was I bored or wondering when the story would start moving again. The best compliment I can give a book is when I'm disappointed that that it's over, yet I keep thinking about it and the characters and what happens next. I wanted it to keep going and I can't wait for more from this author.

    I heard about this book from a local radio station and at $2.99 I figured I couldn't go wrong. What a great book! Great characters, great plot and pacing, lots of tension. This book has it all, love, sex, comedy, horror and some great military action near the end. I LOVED it! All e-books should be this good and only cost $2.99! Great first book by this guy. I'm looking forward to more from him.

    Loved it!

    I loved this book. It wasn't perfect but it was very good. There were too many characters to keep track of and it got confusing at times as to who was who, but I loved it.
