Publisher's Summary

What the world dreads most has happened because of a mutated avian bird flu (H5N1) pandemic. It has ravaged the globe. Only 2% of the population has survived. A dying mother knows that her young child is among the few remaining immune to the virus. What will she do to ensure his survival before her own coming tragic death?

Meanwhile, Graham has buried his last remaining family member. Following his father's advice to make it to the family cabin, he meets with triumph and tragedy; learning new rules along the way. Just when he thinks he's finally got a handle on this new world, he's taken by surprise, as he learns he's not alone. A hidden yet vulnerable community of Preppers are nearby. Will he find the strength to escape these dangers and go on living? And more importantly, will he have the ability to protect those he's come to trust?

A Surprise Find

I really enjoyed listening to this story. I enjoyed the characters - and was pleased for a change that these were shoot instantly people. As a semi prepper myself I could relate to the people and marvel at their preparations.
I like that the preppers looked out for Grams group and then when... well, you’ll have to listen to it yourself.

The virus, I did feel that it’s similar to the here and now but it seemed like it was fast acting.

If you like post apocalyptic novels, you'll like this one.

Not a great novel, but worth the read. The story was good with a few unusual twist. It got a little stupid right at the end, But it was still fun to read.

First-rate book

I really liked listening to this story. The characters are great, and I'm hooked on finding how it turns out for them. I recommend this book. Now for the obligatorily: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. And I'm damn glad A.R. Shaw let me have the Audio form of this book. Since I can't justify the expense of getting the audio format for all in the series, I'm off to Amazon to get the Kindle versions. :)

Mixed bag of good and bad.

Once past the jerky beginning story finds its feet and moves at a decent pace.

Needs a better editor/sounding board.
15yo girls are written like they are 11yo waifs most of the time.
5yo boy written like he should be 12+

Protagonist is borderline too stupid/naive to survive in the environment portrayed *I'll chalk it up to luck and just roll with it.

It's not horrible, but the author could have used some constructive guidance in the early drafts.

Performance is adequate.

To say the least,

I was shocked when the book ended. I was so into it, I didn't even realize it was about to end. I was listening to the audio version. Needless to say, my next read will be China Pandemic book two. I love survival stories, and this one is certainly not run of the mill. It has everything you could want; good guys, bad guys, hunting, fishing, romance, thankfully kept to a minimum, and realism.

Predictable, un-entertaining and returned.

Very basic story that makes no sense, AT ALL! Not even worth a free credit. I made it through five chapters waiting for a reason to not return the selection. The most interesting story line ended after a sick nother leaves her kid with the main character. When she died so did the story.

I've tried... 3 times

I've tried to listen to this story, but the narrator's monotone voice and the unimaginative story really make it tough. honest, youd all have more fun a playing crash up derby with 8th grader while your hands are zip tied behind your back

China Pandemic real or fiction

A bird flu has ravaged the earth, only 2% of the population has lived. Graham has no family left and decides to he for his families cabin in the woods. On the way he picks up a few stragglers and they become his new family. When Graham and one of the girls run into some preppers in a town on a restocking mission they give him a boy to take care of as well since the preppers have not been exposed to the flu they do not know who is susceptible and who is not so they can not keep the boy. What Graham does not know is who the preppers are led by and how much the preppers are helping Graham and his new family, especially when the bad guys come.

This was a great story I would love to hear more and someday I might get to. But it is really good and narrator Darriel Driml really brought it to life. I really liked the story line and the characters they worked well together, but you do need to remember this is fiction so what always works may not always be real, but still a great story.

Great Story

This story keeps you engaged from start to finish. Unfortunately it could be a very real story if that sort of thing ever happened. This story has it all, adventure, comedy, action, and a little passion. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Not sure

This was a boring story, the excerpt was tantalizing but the story lacked adventure. You’re walked through a pandemic in fear and that’s it. I didn’t care for the story.

A tale of redemption and hope

Published in 2013, this title came to my attention now for obvious reasons. A grim story of surviving the aftermath of a truly civilization-shattering pandemic, our hero is a man who has lost everything, but where at first he merely struggles to survive, he soon finds something to live for.

Definitely one to pick up for a tale of courage, strength and overcoming the odds.
