Taking place in the year 2025, an invasion of alien creatures called Instinctive Outside Beings (IOBs) have taken over the world. With the world merely destroyed, a man named Clay Treston finds himself struggling within a reality he has long lost. Tortured and beaten from the impact of the IOBs, he continues to fight and protect a city full of survivors in order to hang onto a past that holds him together. But when suspicious events begin to appear, he soon learns a bigger plot beginning to unfold around him as he tries to hold himself together to fight. On the verge of losing himself and the city, he is then forced to not only learn what his true path is in the world but to put aside his feelings to finally see a new reality before him.

My Review
Well I have some bad news today. This hasn’t happened in a while but I could not get into or even finish this book. I don’t like to knocks books or authors because I understand the heart and effort that goes into these stories.
I was initially drawn to this books because the summary sounded really good. The first couple pages have a note in the beginning that says there are “heavy scenes that involve depression and suicide.” Great warning and something that you don’t think about but in the setting of the book it adds realism.
I started reading the book and then I started running into snags. Some of the descriptions were off and didn’t flow. Then found that some of the dialog kept drawing my attention instead of letting me flow along. I figured that it was just me and I set the book to the side. But I would pick up the book and find the same snags.
I’m sorry but I couldn’t get into this story let alone finish it. I would recommend having an editor go over this story and smooth it out.
Please don’t think that I’m saying not to read this book. Just because it didn’t flow with me doesn’t mean it’s not a good book and someone may not love it. Give it a try, you might enjoy it. As for me, maybe after someone has edited the book I would try again.
