A big book taken as the omnibus, but the only way to read it as there are no endings to the books that make it up. I thoroughly enjoyed the first 2/3, but then felt it lost it's way. Spoiler alert, stop reading now if you fancy reading the series, but the ludicrousness of hundreds of years on finding an unspoilt airfield and survivors that kept technology alive on the main land just off main routes and living a vegetarian life was bad, with frustrating things like the lack solar panels still work, the guns have plenty of ammo and even CCTV is still working really, really grated. Who thinks their current TV will still work in 200 years time? And the ending is poor, the final enemy - ridiculously allowed to go free - had managed to multiply and grow in huge numbers living underground and eating only dead warriors, pure rubbish. Such a shame, the first 2/3 were good. It smacks of an overdue deadline when the good ideas had run dry and it would have been far better to see how the two sides resolved their lives without bringing in a farcical third foe. Very disappointed, because the first parts were well written and thoroughly entertaining.
This post apocalyptic series was amazing! Set hundreds of years after a nuckear war wiped out most of the population, it follows a clan doing what they've done year after year to avoid the cold weather.......but this time it's different. Follow Jonas and his clan to an ending that I definitely didn't see coming - but explains a lot! And is it the end? I certainly hope not!
A different take on the usual apocalyptic books, really good storyline, some excellent heroes and villains to love and hate. The 5 book set was a great purchase and a will definetly buy more from the series as I can't wait to find out what happens next.
Outstanding set of books, set years into the future after a world catastrophe, setting the world back into primitive clans. The narration of the story was captivating, and thoroughly enjoyable. I hope that a second series will follow and eagerly await it. Or even ones set earlier. A must read.
