A book about a hot girl and Private from the Army fighting their way to near Canada to link up with a group of soldiers preparing to take back the country (piece by piece) in true post apocalyptic fashion is very very enticing. If there was a code word for the book it would be Phoenix (since they rise from the ashes of their earlier ancestor). The book had a unique plot: instead of Chinese, aliens, or Russian attackers Franklin used a terrorist attack from the Taliban in the form of dirty bombs.
Well being an avid military enthusiast I rapidly assessed the viability of the different situations. It really is hard for me to believe that the Taliban could shutdown the world like that. Still the story itself was amazingly built, with only one minor plot hole. I really enjoyed the quick read compared to some of the uber long books I’ve been getting. Book comes highly recommend as a nice quick read if you like apocalyptic science fiction with some cool 3-D artwork.
4/5 Wish the story was more believable. No way possible Taliban could shut down the entire world with some dirty bombs and be running around the world. Still the story was amazing and I can’t wait till the next book comes.
