"Set along the lines of The Stand and The Postman, this is a chilling vision of the collapse of all society in the year 2012 and the rebirth of a nation by those who survived. It's so much more than just another fantasy series." -The Review Shop

    Racially offensive

    Referring to 2 violent(demented) rapists as the "black" men, not once, but repeatedly, is just one example of this author's racial bias. Another is the choice of one of her primary antagonists, an insane Mexican slaver, who collects like- minded followers in a quest to destroy what's left of America, raping, burning, and killing as he goes. The good guys are all white. Even I, a white much older woman, am offended. I liked this free novel enough to buy the next book before reading much of the first, but i regret that, now. Another primary antagonist is white, and bad, but he is shown to have saving graces. Non-whites are doomed to insane, irrational, depraved behaviors without reprieve. I'm surprised other reviewers, save one, haven't mentioned this obvious pattern. The book is also in desperate need of decent editing. I often had to pause to make sense of nonsense. That said, the plot and development of a few characters was enough to hold my interest. For the reviewer who wondered at the sequence of book titles, this is the list. The Survivors, On the Road, and Safe Haven, Adrian's Eagles. The first two are included in the free edition, under the title The Survivors.

    A lot better than than it looks!

    While it could use a professional edit on the first few chapters, it's clear from the start that this book isn't like the other apocalypse novels. You're given a real reason why the war happened and then thrown into the middle of the chaos as it self destructs. Very realistic. From there, it goes into the story, catching up with those who survived and their personal stories sucked me right in. I couldn't wait to turn the page. It was full of the stuff I'd been looking for in other books and while bits of it are hard to read due to grammar issues, I highly recommend it for anyone who worries over 2012 or the end of the world. Mrs. White's vision is chilling. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

    What a pleasant surprise

    If this book hadnt been free I probable would have passed it by. What a mistake that would have been on my part because this is must read for all post apocaliptic readers. Just goes to prove the old saying is true...never judge a book by its cover.

    brilliant job, Highly recommended!

    This was a book that hooked me from the very beginning. I've always loved reading post-apocalyptic themed books, but when you add an author who does a brilliant job of capturing the readers attention and leading their imagination from one entertaining chapter to the next, you have a definite winner. I've read many great books over the years, but this one has earned a spot in my all-time favorite list. Highly recommended!

    Engaging story but the overt racism is an annoying distraction

    Not a bad spin on end of the world, but too many distracting overtones. The "true Americans are good, Mexicans are vicious nihilistic mass murderers and rapists" bit was bad enough. But then the scene where the all generous white savior figure tells the sole black man that they rescued him despite all the problems "his people" (blacks) always cause because at least he's an American? Oh please!! Even a white middle class American mom like myself finds that darn offensive. Seriously undermines the overall story.

    I hope we wont get there, but it's always nice to read what if... :)

    Loved it!

    This book grabbed me right away and I had a hard time putting it down when I had things to do! Four people unlikely to come together in other circumstances are pushed together because of a world tragedy. The apocalypse struck bringing the world down and created the ultimate devastation with the ultimate horrors to follow. They have to fight to stay alive and deal with predators on the hunt to prey and search for their next prey. Food is scarce and not very plentiful so it is the ultimate fight for daily survival. I look forward to reading more of the author's books.

    Welcome to the End of the World!

    This book is a fantastic read. The world is destroyed by a President who doesn't want a secret discovered. We don't know what that secret is, but we do read about the devastation his actions caused. The End of the World will not be pretty and all of its survivors will not seek to restore what was lost, but some will set out to add to the destruction.

    One man seeks to gather the remnants of society and rebuild America. To form a new community. Those that follow him will do anything to ensure that he doesn't fail.

    One man seeks to destroy everything that is American. He gathers unto himself all sorts of criminals.

    We get glimpses into what some of what the main characters are/were doing before and after the end came. We get to learn a little about them in little snippets.

    There is a Leader, a Witch, a Son, a Storm-chaser, and Marines.

    Another reviewer made a big deal of all of the errors. Yes, there are times when you get confused because of some weird structuring of a sentence, but overall, if you stick with it, the story will capture your attention so much so, that you won't be able to stop reading until the very end. Even then you won't be able to wait to read what happens next. I have read all 3 books, and I must say that I found myself rooting for several of the characters.

    Books 2 and 3 (On The Road and Safe Haven) are MUST READS! I am looking forward to Book 4 (Adrian's Eagles), I want to know what the secret is and I want to know what happens to everyone.

    I highly recommend this book to other readers of Apocalyptic fiction simply because it is not only a great read, but because it adds another voice to the genre that doesn't have ZOMBIES! You will enjoy this book and be left wanting more.

    Bad to the point of funny

    The book has good bits in it, and then some really bad parts. I about roll on the floor laughing everytime the author refers to the characters as the females or males. The description makes a point of saying this is the edited version. I can't imagine what the previous version looked like. The subplots are better than the main plot.

    The views in the story are.... Americans are week sheep unless you are a marine. Women are chattel and exist to be raped. Mexicans are an horde waiting to descend on America, kill the men, and rape the women.

    I can only recomed this for its comedic value, in that it is so bad, it is funny. The author is paraphrasing "The Stand", with a racist world view.

    Story line - 5 stars; Editing errors - 2 stars; Characters - 4 stars.
    And, yes I'am going to buy Safe Haven, No. 3 in the series, but there is problems with this authors writing. Are the women char. strong - or very weak. I come from mid America, country folk, and most of our households own weapons and our ladies know how to use them. Why were all of the women either controlled or used by men in the post-War world? We would not be cowarding in basement waiting for murders to come for us; we would be fighting back to the death! To the reviews that brought up racial bias, most mexicans are very decent people, but these are supposed to be crazied dopeheads with mostly dead brain cells. The kind that would also kill any decent hispanics or blacks along with whites. And, the black twins were the only bad demented blacks. The author added in plenty of demented whites in the books. Stop looking for racism, and start reading for fun.

    This series is for readers that enjoy novels not 20 page short stories.

    Must read

    I have read the first 3 of this series and despite the poor editing/proofing I would compare it to the Stand. Well developed characters strong story line. Waiting for the 4th and hoping it will complete to story as well as it has started.

    Wow!!

    What a great story. I really enjoy Post-Apocalyptic/disaster stories, THE SURVIVORS did not disappoint me! At first, because there is so much going on with all the different characters, I had a hard time keeping everybody/everything straight. I would find myself going back and re-reading portions just to make sure I didn't miss anything. However, as the story progressed and I became familiar with everybody, that wasn't an issue anymore. I was surprised at how the story was able to really draw me in. However, I was surprised at the abrupt (to me) ending, but then the author explained on the very next page that the Ebook version had to be split into 3 serial editions due to size. Fortunately, the next in the series can be downloaded in just seconds! If you enjoy Post-Apocalyptic stories with a lot of action and page turning suspense, then you don't want to pass this series of books up!

    My first thought when I saw this is well, OK...says has a new perspective, I'm ready for a change, I'll give it a try. Well, I have been thru book one, book two and I am nearly finished with the final installment. I am SO glad I gave it a chance, even after seeing how many pages were in the first installment. The story moves along at a good pace, there's lots of action, lots of thought provoking ideas and situation, a love story that doesn't overshadow the tale and a great what if premise. The other reviews have hit on what it's about so I'll let it go with a "great read" recommendation. Open your imagination to what your life would be like in a post apocalyptic worlds. PS...Pay attention early on...you'll be glad you did.

    It seem to me that some people are putting way to much weight on

    It seem to me that some people are putting way to much weight on the "racial slurs". Not once did the writter use offensive wording or state that only the white people were worth saving. It is a good read not overwhelmed with unnecessary sex scenes or vulgar language. I was swept away by the characters and their plight to survive, hard decisions are part of their life now and that made you feel for them on a whole different level. I personally can not wait for the 5th book. As for the bad ratings given... you need to have a little imagination it is a work of fiction.
