Overview

When most of the world's population transform into super predators with a taste for flesh, the remaining survivors huddle together and try to start again by carving out an existence in the wasteland. With the night belonging to the feeders, however, it seems only a matter of time before humanity is driven to extinction.

As Matt and Sally wander through the empty landscape, they meet others who vow to fight and reclaim the world from the evil beasts who were once human. When a girl is discovered who may have powers to resist the creatures, the survivors know that they must protect her at all costs.

Desolation Boulevard is an action-packed thrill-ride in a bleak, disturbing future where humans are number two in the food chain.

You'll be wishing they were just zombies.

(While this book is fantastic, it is not to be confused with the movie "Desolation of Smaug")

    The story in this book is fantastic. I don't mean "it's a fantastic story" as in "it's a fantastic book", I mean the story--the part of the book that counts the most, the part that keeps you coming back-- is fantastic. It is a story worth telling--and in our current inundated book market, that's very hard to find. Someone in another review mentioned "The Stand" as a comparison and I thought, "Eureka!" --that's it! This book is that involved, it is that good. It doesn't slam you with amazing and fantastic Hollywood-blockbuster scenery, although a great of it is action-packed, instead it only brings into the scenes that the story requires in order to keep you invested.

    Mr. Gordon explores a bit of human nature, both good and bad, without throwing it in your face--I really like that about his writing. The scene with the lady living in a cabin in the woods alone comes to mind--her description of why exactly it is she won't leave with her new friends, even though it would probably be better for her to do so. It was a very small part of the story, but without it I would have lost some of the emotion of what the author was trying to convey in the book overall, and for some reason it has stuck with me as one of the most memorable parts.

    The element of the fantastic that exists within Gabby's potential to save mankind, and of course the backdrop of the world "gone zombie", isn't overdone as it is in so many apocalyptic novels.

    I couldn't get enough of this book. Mr. Gordon is an Aussie, and maybe there was a bit of a draw for me just in the way he wrote (as a result of where he's from--I'm from the US), but I really enjoyed his style. A different editor would definitely enhance this book--but I don't care. I give it an enthusiastic 5 stars. This was a great story, start to finish, and I look forward to buying Book Two.
