Publisher's Summary

From out of the clear blue sky, an unknown chunk of rock from the frozen void strikes the Earth with unimaginable force, gouging a wound into the very crust of the planet. Millions die in an instant, and millions more await the end as the looming catastrophe unfolds...

Thousands of miles away from the disaster, a call comes in the middle of the night. Families act, and react, and while panic spreads, the world keeps on spinning. Maybe a little slower, and perhaps with a teeny bit more of a tilt, but such things are a mere trifle to the existence of a planet. For the human inhabitants of this planet, though, the meteor's collision will have far-reaching effects as the impact creates ripples throughout their fragile existence.

Bryan Hardin just wanted to create a sanctuary in the country for his remaining family, a place to heal his wounded spirit as he struggles with survivor's guilt and approaching middle age. He's hardly the heroic type, but his family is going to need all of them to act like heroes if they are going to survive the spreading effects of the Rockfall.

The earthquakes are primary effects.

The tsunami are secondary effects.

Will anybody survive the Tertiary Effects?

good

I enjoyed the book a lot of information. At times I found it a little long winded and I would loose concentration.

I tried, really.

The premise is really interesting, I really wanted it to be good, but just got weirdly ignorant nonsense. It would be wrong to call the narration bad, mediocre would be more accurate. I'm really bummed this wasn't better.

What a terrible book.

I have struggled to make it to the middle of the book... First, the narrator is too feminine in the strong role, trying to ignore the narrator is a distraction. The story could have been excellent, half way through, it is still disappointing, I don't think I'll be finishing this one unless something happens in the next hour. 1 star isn't harsh, bad story, bad narrator. Also, the family in the book is better than anyone else, paranoid, and rich with the mindset that everyone else is greedy and would be looters while he slyly is different and buys years of food, it is just a parody of the worst of the prepper genre.

Little slow

Different path to the apocalypse rather than a virus or EMP or Nuke. A slow slide into destruction of life as we know it, focused on the effects of a meteorite hit, and how it reeks havoc on the MC and his family and friends. Will get the next as this is a change of the ‘fast’ pace to oblivion.

A slow burn...

Minute by minute narration of every little act and thoughts of an single individual is almost mind numbing. The story seems to require such minuscule details to build the picture of the main character so we understand this man inside and out. Seems we need to know this person so thoroughly to grasp the apocalypse he faces through his eyes. Everything he does to prep, every gun he chooses, every reasoned decision to save the people he does. What we really need is more about the Rock Fall. We need more backstory behind the discovery, if there were attempts to prevent the event. We need to know what
