Impetus by Scott Sullivan

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) When the world first heard about the meteorites, it was already too late.

Ten arduous years later, Mick and his small group of eight had adapted to the new way of things. With no clean running water, power, or forms of communication, the Earth went backward, taking with it almost everything they held dear. Survivors like Mick were forced to do the best they could with what they had. Because in the post-Impact world, alternatives were a luxury that no one could afford.

Now a deadly virus threatens those who were unfortunate enough to survive.

With the clock ticking down on their lives, Mick will navigate the deceitful webs spun by those that oppose his drive for salvation. And along his quest to prevent another catastrophe, Mick will rediscover what it truly means to be human.

Ten years ago meteorites hit the earth and destroy almost everything. Small groups of people are barely surviving now. Mick is the leader of a group of 8 people, including his teenage children. They are scrounging out a living when he runs into Solomon and the Rubble King. Solomon is a young man that was taken in by Ms. Stella, an older lady that ran an unofficial orphanage. When things got bad King took her boys hostage to become his gophers and locked Stella in the basement of a police station they live in to keep Solomon under his rule.After discovering Mick, King decides that he wants to take everything that Mick has. And when disaster strikes, Mick has to make a tough decision to find a new home for he group. This leads him into the Kings hands and more trouble.

But there is another group of scientists that make a secret underground facility with the hopes of rebuilding the earth. But things are going wrong. There is a bad virus that everyone has and is slowly killing everyone. The scientists decide to hand out a vaccine to the groups of people in the city to help them. But Phillip is one of the scientists that have been trying to work on a cure and he learns that this is an accelerant for the virus. He decides to go out and talk to the one group that has not treated themselves to try and get them to safety. But things go wrong when King gets his hands on Phillip too.

This is a great story. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for Solomon and Mick. King was an evil jerk and got what he deserved. I instantly got sucked into the story and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next.

This is one book that you HAVE to read. I will be looking for other books by Scott Sullivan.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
