Tuesday Book Reviews


Four-star review of Perseid Collapse: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller (Alex Fletcher Book 2) by Steven Konkoly

 The second book in this series finds something streaking across the stratosphere, possibly an asteroid, breaking up, and striking the Atlantic Ocean in at least four places not far off the eastern US coast. The novel focuses on how Alex Fletcher and his family and neighbors cope with the ensuing flooding and tsunami and attempt to retrieve Alex’s son and a neighbor’s daughter in Boston. The tsunami is combined with an EMP, arguing against an asteroid, but there’s no explanation beyond that. Also, no one seems to know how far the devastation has spread. Prepared for any eventuality, Alex and neighbors Ed and Charley, set out south and west to avoid military and police barricades, but the story quickly dissolves into excessive violence.  This is a quick, engrossing read.
