    Wow, man, what a great new writer this Jason M. Hough is!

    This brand new sci-fi post-apocalyptic trilogy is pretty damn awesome thus far. I am just about finishing up the last 100 pages of the 2nd book - The Exodus Towers - and I can't help but feel the first 2 books have remided me strongly of a perfect bland of Deathlands meest Outlanders. (Especially Outlanders)

    Has anyone tried these books? Feels like very early Mark Ellis Outlanders.

    Oh, great! I personally loved Cannibal Reign. And so has everyone I've recommended it to.

    What do you think so far? If you like realistic sniper novels, that author also co-authored a great action book titled Sniper Elite. Highly recommended! 

     

    I am currently halfway through Dire Earth book 3. Very good, but so far loved the 1st one best.

    Only at chapter seven but looks to be quite good. One of the characters is alarmingly called Harold Shipman.

    Is he a doctor in it? I wonder if the writer checked his character names before starting, then again his editor should have spotted this one.

    What book did you just finish Silentalbino? If it is the Darwin Elevator, then the last DL, then I have to agree with you. I actually think the 1st book is the best of the trilogy.
