This one starts with Buck, a long haul trucker who's in Modesto, CA. He's getting ready to pick up a load to haul back to NY City. His son Garth is in NY City staying with his best friend Sam and his parents. This is how it works for Buck and Garth because Buck's long distance runs usually last three weeks out of a month.
Buck is ex military who was in the sandbox during Iraq and Afghanistan. He has a pin in his leg which bothers him at times. Once out of the military he became a long haul trucker. Its a life he loves. On the death of his wife he became a single parent. Garth is his other great love.
On his way back to his truck he sees a bright blue wave go shooting through the sky. Not sure what he's looking at he watch's as it disappears. Little does he know this blue wave is deadly.
Garth and his friend Sam are at La Guardia airport to meet Sam's parents who are returning from a trip to Chicago. As they wait in an area with a fine view of the landing field Garth spots that blue wave. He has no idea what he's looking at. About then a plane hits the tarmac nose first and bursts into flames. Garth and Sam have no idea if its his parents plane or not.
Buck picks up the load and heads out. He's looking to hit I-80 which will take him straight to White Plains, NY. On the way, not even out of California, he hits a massive storm with more lightening than he's ever seen. After listening to other truckers ahead of him, truckers who's transmissions are cut off, Buck decides to head back South and then go around the storm. He has Big Mac a six month old Golden Retriever he got at a shelter. He was more than surprised to find a pure bred of any kind at the shelter. So far Mac has been a great traveling companion.
Garth and Sam will have their share of adventures as will Buck. All because of that blue wave.
So begins one fine read.
This one has Buck, Garth, Sam, Faith a scientist, Dez and naturalist in Australia, a cave in on the subway, a Buck who manages to stay ahead of that storm and finally gets away from it, a Buck who has been calling Garth and leaving messages, a Garth who never gets one of those calls, a General at NORAD trying to figure out what's going on, the men at Three Mile Island also trying to figure out what's going on, Garth and Sam on a wild ride with a crazy cab driver, and Buck doing his best to get home on this crazy ride he's on, see his son, survive and stay alive.
From the first chapter of the story,I couldn't put it down. I loved how the authors have created a world that provides an excellent foundation for the series to be built upon. Starting with an event that was seen world wide.,there are various individual,some what unrelated happenings,world wide,providing seemingly unrelated,view points, which not only kept me turning the pages but also drawing my complete focus as the authors take the first steps in bringing the planet various locations closer together.
And while building a strong foundation for the series,the individual characters,from the many rodent locations spread around three world,each have the begging of distinct personalities that are memorable and compelling. I look forward to see what happens next.
There is no cliff hangers and while building the foundation,you are provided with few,different but not confusing,chino crosses in the different primary locations,that are complete by the end of the book.
Like most novels,much is based on the authors highly creative imaginations, it is obvious that their research and personal experiences have so far, made it high on the believability scale for part-apocalyptic scale. I duo recommend this series and look forward to continuing this journey wherever the authors take me. Based on this book, I have faith I won't be disappointed.
