Devastation Point -5 Years Post Viral Apocalypse by Paul Kirk

What would you do if you were stranded halfway around the world when it crumbled?

The world collapsed after the spread of the hyper-aggressive H5N1 Avian plague and several airborne mutations. By simply breathing the air, billions upon billions around the world died in less than a few months' time.

Soon after, technology and infrastructure disintegrated. Electricity is gone; there are no cell phones, Internet, television or much else. Humanity lies in waste, disease and ruin. Among the remaining survivors, one very rare gene in the human DNA surfaced as resistant to the onslaught.

Stuck in the remote mining town of Mudgee, Australia, Colonel Connor MacMillen survives the dark and dangerous times. Motivated by family, he intends to get home to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania--or rather, the Fayette Mountains south of Pittsburgh. He has unfinished business to attend to there.

After four impossible years traveling in a post-apocalyptic world, Connor Mac lands in San Francisco and commences the last leg of his journey across the continental United States.

DEVASTATION POINT begins Connor Mac's exploits in the fifth year of the New Dark Ages as he encounters a strange and changed America turned upside down by the "Cuckoo Flu".

Encountering new friends as well as making fierce enemies along the way, his personal journey reveals a furious and confident fight for life. But, unbeknownst to Connor Mac, his journey to get home is noticed by those still in power in America; and they’re looking for him. It seems he is decidedly different than most men left standing. While all living men are infertile, he is still able to reproduce. And, that changes everything.

DEVASTATION POINT is a literary achievement that takes a comprehensive and thoughtful look at how one man, trained by America's best, would respond to a world completely altered by the pandemic destruction. To Connor Mac, family connections are critical and returning home can be a prime motivator for one last and final mission.

Thanks for sharing your novel, I enjoyed it greatly. I found it a pleasure to read and as exciting as any book I've had the opportunity to read this year.

Destination Point is a very well written, fast-paced, on the edge of your seat book! The plot is well developed, and the main character, Connor Mac, is a man on a mission. I love how the author takes you from one scenario to the next, leaving you wanting more from the previous scenario. I can't wait for book two, and hopefully it will be made on audio. Im legally blind, and it did take me some time to read it, and I couldn't put it down. I would love to hear it on audio. Well done, Mr. Kirk!

Good book overall. I think the ending was a little abrupt.

Oh my gosh, what a great book. Most authors would divide this book into at least a three-series set. Thank you, Paul Kirk, for putting it all into one fabulous 900 plus pages book and at an astronomically low price. How refreshing to have a book that isn't read within a couple of hours. I have been savoring this book for a couple of weeks. The story takes place several years after a catastrophic disease outbreak and follows the adventures of an extremely competent man in his quest to get back home. Of course, the country is in shambles with millions dead, no electricity, and villains galore (thank God, there are no zombies). For once, the small government, headed by a fantastic woman president/military officer are the good guys. If you like apocalyptical books, you will love this one. Looking forward to some more Paul Kirk books.
