It was a difficult start because both protagonists were not likable. The story picked up and was good. The 2nd story again has protagonists that were not the norm; it starts a little after the 1st story, intersects with 1st, and then goes on a further time line. The 3rd book starts later and kind of a reverse Joan of Arcish. The writer has a wonderful way of writing, some interesting turns, but by the third book, it became redundant especially how many men who set thrmselves up as kings in the face of disaster. Although I would like to know more about some of the characters and aliens in future, I can't read another 3 books that are so similar.

I'm really enjoying this story. I found it under the free books category so l was thinking how good could it be if they are offering it for free. I have about 100 pages left and I have to say l have been entertained thru out. At first l could not stand the character Walt by the point I'm at now l love him. I gauge a good book if l get sucked in and love the story, the characters and l do. I will definitely be checking out books 4-6. And for the record...l'd be one of the first to die if l survived the pandemic...l'd never eat and would starve to death unless l had a garden being a vegetarian seems difficult in a post apocolyptic world.

Once I got past about the first half of the first book, I had a hard time putting it down. I've read the first 3 books now and really enjoyed them, much to my surprise. One of the main things that bothered me was that there are so many typographical and grammatical errors in the text. However, the books were free so I shouldn't complain. There are some very interesting characters, but also some very convenient, or predictable, characters. The aliens and their reason for invading Earth were a bit confusing to me; it doesn't ever seem like we really know why they invaded and the reason that is given is extremely vague. Maybe it's because they are aliens and they just could, so they did? Maybe it gets cleared up in the next six books somewhere. All in all, not a bad set of books for free.

Entertaining, never boring - a great story of post-apocalyptic fiction. I liked this three-book introduction to the series enough (I got it free on my Nook) that I quickly purchased the rest of the series (there are 8 books in all) for my Nook. I expect that despite the length of reading I will have to do to complete the series, I will seldom get bored. The first three books are only loosely interconnected, and are each three separate stories of people dealing with the aftermath of a deadly plague (called "the Panhandler" in the story) which, it is later discovered, was deliberately brought by space aliens in order to reduce humanity's ability to resist. Indeed, the plague kills over 85% of humanity, and with so many dead, society as it is known completely breaks down, and humanity regresses into a tribalist, hunter-gatherer type of existence ---- armed with modern weaponry. The protagonists are not particularly likeable - they're selfish, whiny, amoral, and, in the third story, almost sociopathically violent. Still, to me it makes the characters more real - they behave the way you'd expect real life people to behave. Also, throughout, the characters grow from their self-absorbed selves prior to the plague, into something resembling reluctant heroes. I was thoroughly entertained with all three books and fully expect I'll be entertained for the next five.

Well written and an interesting story but the follow-on stories are about the same thing just told from other character's view-points. So my rating is four stars for the first story and two stars for the others. JC

This is excellent post apocolyptic fiction! I went in with pretty high expectations because of the positive reviews. It was even better than I thought it would be. There is a little crossover between the books as far as characters go, but each book is its own story within the world of America during and after the Panhandler virus pandemic and the subsequent alien invasion. I found myself immersed in the books to the point that it felt real. His descriptions and use of familiar locations and his characters' often amusing references to popular culture contributed a lot to that reality. Great characters and plot lines, excellent writing, and only a very few editing errors. Very professional work, and should be in print if it isn't already. I highly recommend this.

Jumping back and forth from different characters - is not my type of story. Stopped reading before I got to page 100.

And again, utterly amazing. The author was born with the IT factor, with the IT emphasis being cyaracter dialogue. I read, ALOT, and was fantastically surprised at the unique and real dialogue by and between characters. Kudos and thanks to the author! DMB

Crisp, believable storytelling. Raina, Walt, Ness, Mauser... A credible cast of characters to re-fashion their part of the world.

My new favorite author. Right up there with Bernard Cornwell for nailbiting realism. Couldn't put these down.

I'm not big on pandemics, end of the world, etc. But these books are at the top of the lists of books I normally don't read. Good writing, few errors lots of sub plots that all hang together. Good read all the way to the end.

One of the best end of the world stories I've ever read. The first three books kept me riveted until the last sentence.
