Book Review & Giveaway: Final Dawn: Season 1 by Mike Kraus

I'm a huge fan of the post apocalyptic genre of books and movies. I actually stumbled across this series of books by accident while searching for something new to read on Amazon. For those that aren't familiar with this genre, there are a few different types: nuclear event, zombie, and global illness. Final Dawn: Season 1 by Mike Kraus deals with a world wide nuclear event... with a twist.

Final Dawn is told from the point of view of four characters: Rachel, Leonard, Marcus, and Nancy. It follows them from the moment of the nuclear event through their struggle for survival and their fight to save humanity. I loved the development of the characters and how I felt like I knew them by the end of the series. The only thing I didn't like about the book was that certain parts of it, I felt, needed more explanation while others needed less. Overall it was a good read and action packed! It received 4 out 5 stars on Amazon and a 3.80 on Goodreads. Final Dawn was originally released as short episodes with 1-2 issues a month but you can now purchase it on Amazon in seasons which contain all the episodes together which is how I recommend you get it as the episodic form just isn't enough!

I liked the series so much that I'm giving away the first season to one of my readers! The winner will have a choice of either a Kindle or paperback version. Giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada only. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the email announcing their win, if winner doesn't respond then Rafflecopter will then choose a new winner. All entries will be verified and any entry that does not comply with the entry task will be disqualified. Good luck and thanks for reading my review. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did!

Yes and no. I keep a 2 month supply of food on hand at all times and we have a generator. That's all we have so far.

Absolutely not. I'm lucky if I have enough bread in the house to make sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. I'm horrible at being prepared in advance!

I really do not see myself as a doomsday prepper but I do take a few steps to protect myself if the need arises.
