    TN is a difficult book to rate Michael Bunker and Nick Cole show improvement in what has already been great storytelling and prose in their earlier works The story begins with a horrific event, but then slows down way down at times We are introduced to a wide cast of characters, but I didn t really feel connected to them until about 60% in There were some parts before that where I thought, great scene, but I had just as many if not reactions to scenes where I put the book down to read something else.The scene I enjoyed most in the first third was between Jim and Mr Vo I really enjoyed Jim and his backstory as a Vietnam veteran, and then how he was able to trick Mr Vo into admitting the truth about his past Aside from the end, this was my favorite scene Unfortunately, the interest I gained through Jim s pov wavered as I read Ellis s early chapters summarized in the line And that made Utah the perfect place for Ellis to go, sit, and thinkEllis is a twenty two year old taking care of a valley that has strong foreshadowing of falling under an attack from brigands, zo...

    I received an advance copy of this book from Michael Bunker.I was not familiar with the Alpocalypse Weird universe, but came to this book having read Michael Bunker Huge fan of Wick Pennsylvania.That said, I did enjoy the book, but not as much as those others The story is fun and entertaining, the characters interesting, and the landscape is well described, but I just felt that not enough of the story concluded That said, once I started reading, I had a hard time stopping Just wish there was of a conclusion for some of the characters introduced As far as my introduction to the Alpoca...

    Combining a character focused post apocalyptic survival narrative with hints of a wider, potentially supernatural, story, Bunker and Cole have created a novel that works as both an individual work and an entry point to other story arcs set in the same world.Following the Blindness five years previously, civilisation has fallen apart The Texas Badlands are wastelands prey to feral cannibals and criminal gangs As the last clusters of sanity fall, a group of children, led by Ellis, attempt to build a life in a hidden valley Although hostile terrain and inadequate resources already drag them towards a slow death from malnutrition, will the arrival of a man who worships destruction deny them even that little life This novel is set in the shared universe of Wonderment Media s Apocalypse Weird plot However, Bunker and Cole for the most part avoid both heavy duplication of information and relying on the reader having read other the other story lines The plot arc of the book benefits from a similar self sufficiency, resulting in a story that while it does raise questions about the wider world and future events can be enjoyed as a stand alone work.Unfortunately, the chapter that least displays this is the first Called chapter one but functioning as a prologue, it tells the reader that the apocalypse is happening and has something to do with not being able to see, and that it is terrible, but ...

    There have been some early comparisons between the Apocalypse Weird series and the Marvel Cinematic Universe Most of us are familiar with how Marvel is expanding their comic books with tales on the Silver Screen in the form of Iron Man, Captain America, The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy While that familiarity may not be present in the Apocalypse Weird series, the analogy is appropriate nonetheless, especially when it comes to the Nick Cole Michael Bunker novel, Texocalypse Now And that familiarity will come in time if the quality of the stories in AW continues like it does in this novel.A huge part of constructing the Marvel movies is telling an engaging story while advancing potential threads that can branch off into different plotlines for future movies For example, Captain America s shield was seen in Tony Stark s lab in Iron Man 2 and Thanos was seen in a post credits scene of The Avengers both of which helped to set up future stories and villains.I don t think many would say The Avengers didn t deliver as a stand alone movie, yet it laid the groundwork for potentially dozens of future movies That s because Marv...

    Though I often read books to learn things and those books are usually nonfiction , my primary reason to read is to be entertained Having gotten my degree in English Education, I ve read lots and lots of classics Dickens, Faulkner, Hemingway, and all their friends , and what are considered important works of contemporary fiction such as The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy and The Sportswriter by Richard Ford But when I want to have fun and live an adventure through writing that takes me someplace else, nothing beats speculative fiction Science Fiction and Fantasy are my true passions, and when you find a writer you really love, it becomes an obsession to read everything they write.But now something new has emerged on the scene, and it s not just about the author Apocalypse Weird is the brainchild of Wonderment Media, a newly formed company that is using multiple authors to tell a story so vast in scope that it will no doubt be around for years The feedback on the books released February 23 has been overwhelmingly positive, which is fantastic news for people like me, who love to live adventures albeit these are life and death adventures in the pages of...

    Part of a wave of books to be released February 23rd, Texocalypse Now is like the movie trailer that demands you return to the theater.Darkness literally overtakes Central Texas and we re given solid scenes of various well developed characters showing that the struggle for survival in an apocalyptic wasteland is real The book is peppered with Precious Metal Pirates, Monstrous hordes, Biker Gangs in the tradition of Mad Max, and circumstantial farmers eking out a living in these bleakest of times Survival is hardly a sure thing for our heroes.Michael Bunker and Nick Cole have created a wonderful collaborative work They each have a distinct voice but it never detracts from the overall story You can feel the passion seeping from the pages when Cole describes life L.A., or Bunker a life off the grid or at least I think that s how it happened Maybe they reversed roles and the joke is on me However they did it, the pair gives every character depth and write a patience rewarding slow burn that explodes into a heart pounding crescendo somehow m...

    This is the first book I ve read in the Apocalypse Weird series and not even halfway through, I was completely hooked and had purchased all the other titles I tend to be a bit picky about my post apocalyptic, dystopian, zombie fiction I m married to what I would call a Romero zombie purist He has RULES about what makes good zombies and those spill over into any apocalyptic scenario While I like that we know how the horde started, I doubt that he would So if you re one of those who must have unintelligent, shambling zombies that no one knows the origins of, this book is not for you.

    I thought this book was well written, developed quickly without leaving a bunch of loose ends and definitely left me wanting I want to know about all the characters and their backgrounds The first page I found when I searched for A...

    This book continues the post apocalyptic tale begun in The Red King, with most of the scenes taking place about five years after the day the world changed Instead of the zombie epidemic that plagues California, Texas and many other parts of the world were hit by a period of total darkness followed by chaos and anarchy The world is mostly a very unfriendly place, with various types of scavengers and predators attacking anyone trying to establish a somewhat normal life Ellis and his new family have found an enclave that is relatively well hidden and protected, and they are managing to live a fairly peaceful life on their farm The reader learns of various dangers facing the little group Will they manage to hold on despite appearing to have the odds stacked against them I received an advance reading copy of Texocalypse Like The Red King, Texocalypyse gen...
