Atlas is a war hero caught between his wife's love or saving the survivors of Earth which has been destroyed by unknown forces. The closest thing to organized leadership are the packs of scavengers that take what they want. To keep his wife safe, he builds an army. To give her the life she wants, he fights. To win back their home, he must go to war. But she doesn't believe that his sacrifice is for her and his selflessness is driving them apart. As he struggles for his wife's devotion he is caught in a war with a tyrannical dictator. To win the war and his wife's safety he must give her up and fight a war where defeat is expected. To fight a dictator he must become a warlord.
Hovering over everything is the threat of an alien invasion which Atlas slowly pieces together through unreliable stories told by the survivors. He soon learns that his fight is only a small part in a war that has been raging for hundreds of years and reaches throughout the galaxy.
A gritty and realistic action adventure book blends with minimal use of science fiction elements to create a rich, believable contemporary fiction story of one soldier's heart-wrenching post apocalyptic journey to keep his family alive.
"A very accomplished, spirited novel of depth and intelligence that grips you in a vice like hold from beginning to end. Highly recommended." - SFBook.com

The Earth has been decimated by missiles from an unknown source, an electromagnetic field has been pulsed around the world, disrupting communications, radiation is killing millions, crippling a world that is losing its humanity. Will this be the end or a new beginning? Code Name: Atlas by Tony Evans is a dark and jarring story of the will of man to survive, some to attempt to rebuild, others to dominate and control. This is classic good vs evil vs the unknown, because there is an unknown. A reluctant war hero with a gift for military strategics becomes the leader of an ever-growing band of survivors. Not welcoming his role, he uses only the name Atlas as he leads his followers to what he hopes will be safety and security, foregoing his own happiness to fulfill his need to protect and serve. Are the forces that rise up against him more powerful? Better equipped? What do they know that he doesn’t? Will the civilians understand his methods of leading or will they turn against him? How much is one man expected to give up and remain sane? After each brick is mortared, and his world-building was complete, author Tony Evans took me through his frighteningly realistic world in chaos, where survival is near impossible without strength and loyalty. Heroes grow out of the ranks, and betrayal grows out of fear. Good people die, bad ones survive in a world that now must also face danger from space, but first, the dangers on Earth must be tamed. Mr. Evans created tension from the beginning and it may have changed focus, but it never let up! This is not a post-apocalyptic world where its survivors gain unique abilities, find young love or even a moment of respite, this is stark, raw and brutal, told with frank words, blunt descriptions and real drama. Do I recommend this book? Most definitely! Tony Evans has mastered the transportation of the mind into another reality takes a while to come away from. I received a review copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
A friend of mine brought this book to my attention, and at first I thought, "Oh great, another zombie apocalypse scenario", which seems to be all the trendy flavor of the month, right? But I gave it the attention that it deserves, and the author acutally did a great job with it. He must have had some kind of military experience, because the action scenes are well played-out. There is a lot of attention to detail in that respect. There's emotion, there's grit - feelings and courage - lots of courage, in the acitons of the main characters. Lots of twists and turns, and many characters come and go. Reminds me of Game of Thrones, where you get to love a character and then BAM! they're out of there, and others you wouldn't expect to make the cut turn out to be major players. My only complaint, if you would call it that, is that it feels unfinished, and I would hope to see a sequel of this novel soon. There's lots of room to expand here.
This book is great. From beginning to end this book has non-stop suspense that keeps you itching to see what happens next. The Author mixes strategy and action with emotions and relatable characters. Highly recommended and a must read for all.
The main character is easily likable from the beggining so is the antagonist along with many other characters in the book. The book unfolds like a mystery novel and masterfully combines sci-fi with action and drama. I read the book in two days because i could not put it down. This is a must read for anyone that is a fan of reading the printed word.
I really enjoyed this ebook!! Can't wait for the next one!!!
A breath of fresh air during the end of the world. Definitely a new twist on the post-apocalyptic thriller genre. I mean, the hero’s girl isn’t supposed to resent him for being a hero and the good guys always win, right? From the big to small twists, this tale bucks every rule of action adventure. The bad guys are sympathetic and the good guys have a dark side. This is no prepper tale of survival, but a military veteran’s take on rebuilding the world. As such, it stresses discipline, organization and teamwork over heroics. All with several mysteries hanging over the survivors… and did I mention the aliens? My only real complaint is that these huge questions, there’s a lot of them, don’t get wrapped up until the end. Some of the most interesting tidbits come only in the final chapter. Sure, the best is saved for last, but I wonder why? Still, a fun and different book that’s well worth the read.
