This is one I grabbed a sample from, and then purchased. This is one of the more expensive self-published novels ($6.99), but I was impressed by the sample. The novel did not disappoint.
The story follows the protagonist, Roger Westover, and a fellow passenger at an Atlanta airport. It also follows his son, Corey, and his ex-girlfriend Ashley in Denton, Texas. There is a pandemic outbreak, and Roger is well-prepared for the fallout, as is his student, Ashley. Roger and his companion make their way to Texas and then to a commune that Roger and like-minded folks had assembled (Roger is a prepper).
I do not want to ruin the tale, but I will say that the only disappointing aspect of the novel was that regarding Corey's character. I know what the author was going for, but I found the actions and thought processes of Corey's character to be very abrupt in their change.
That was the only disappointing aspect though. There were a few typos, but not many, less than what I have seen in some professionally published novels. Although the novel is purported to be part of a series, the author successfully creates a novel that stands alone, yet does hook the reader. I was not disappointed in what I paid for.
