I found it a gripping story after a few stumbles.


A new star bursts onto the post-apocalyptic fiction scene: Thomas Koloniar. An epic dark saga set in a dystopian near-future, Cannibal Reign follows the fortunes of a small band of survivors, as they make their way across a nightmare landscape populated by bestial, flesh-eating savages after an asteroid strike destroys America. A dark, smart, action-packed vision of a terrifying possible tomorrow—when the only law left is “eat or be eaten”—Koloniar’s Cannibal Reign is an absolute must-read for fans of TV’s zombie smash hit The Walking Dead, Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, Lucifer’s Hammer, the Mad Max movies, and, of course, Stephen King’s immortal horror masterwork The Stand.

This book has a lot of potential to be turned into a movie as it gives you a sense of visualization about the characters and what they do over the course of the story. Overall, highly recommended.

When the book was finished, I wanted to love it...I kept thinking about the book, the more annoyed I was with the way Koloniar wrote his female characters...I didn’t even know I cared about female representation until it wasn’t there...A great story with a major flaw. If you can overlook the problem, you’ll love it.

A good way to waste a few hours, but you would be better off reading something useful, like the back of a ceral box.
