Product Description

Vann Arnett may be the last man to survive the end of civilization, unchanged by the plague that brought about The Collapse. For him, life is a daily battle not only to stay alive, but also to keep from going crazy.

So when his carefully structured world is turned upside down by a force of outsiders beyond his control, his fight for sanity takes a backseat to that of survival.

In a world populated by the dead, the crazy, and the murderous, what can one sane man do?

2.0 out of 5 stars Had a Chance to be Good, But Never Quite Got There 16 Aug 2013
By Tsundoku Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Brief Summary: Vann Arnett has a problem: he's lonely. There are also vampires and the possible end of the world, but he's doing the best he can to survive alone by himself with his dog Rusty. And he's pretty good at it too--until the day a post-apocalyptic military unit comes to town and things go a little haywire.

The Tsundoku Scale: Bottom of the Pile, 3 out of 10.

The Good: It's very well written, I will give it that. Some parts were kind of funny, and I will also give it that. And I liked Arnett as the bold, but contemplative hero. There were parts that almost made the story interesting, like the fact that some vampires are found to not eat people, or how Arnett's interactions with the military could have played out, but nothing ever made it quite good enough. But mostly, Fallen is Babylon was a pretty quick read which eased some of the pain of reading it.

The Bad: I've said before, and I'll say it again: I hate vampires. It takes a lot for me to turn the other cheek and praise a vampire book, and Fallen is Babylon does not cut it. I hate the whole inconceivable obsession with vampire sexuality, and when one of the first scenes of the book is a vampire orgy outside Arnett's fortified mansion in order to tempt him to come out, I'm not happy. The first third of the book is almost a complete rip-off of I am Legend, complete with one man living alone against an apocalyptic world, creatures that cannot deal with the sun, and even a dog as a companion. I was dying to see Arnett's heartfelt or horrifying reconnection with his vampire-changed former wife, but it never happened and the threat of a betrayal within the military unit never played out quite as loudly as the chatter of gunfire and pitter patter of feet running from vampires. The vampires were so close to having some kind of emotion--what made them different from their former human selves, were they really that different from normal humans, why had the Prophet gained such control, but all the loose ends remained loose ends, and the book remained loose and unfulfilling.
4.0 out of 5 stars The Curse of Suvival... 30 Oct 2013
By Michael McCasland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Vann Arnett feels that's he's cursed. In Fallen is Babylon, Michael Wentela has brought us a world of the undead - in this case...Vampires! The plague took away his family, friends and finally - acquaintances and now he's all alone, except for a trusting hound named Rusty. He fights to stay alive because he has to, but his loneliness comes at a price....the curse of being the last human alive is slowly eating at his sanity. Read this book if you like some action and drama, and naturally mix in some horror.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fallen is Bablyon 5 Sep 2013
By Redbird76 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
WOW! This is not my type of book that I usually read. It got my attention from the beginning. Started reading about midmorning and finished the book around 10:30 PM that same day! Hoping the next book is coming out soon to see how Vann and Rossington and the "good" vampires made out with their lives and if The Prophet, General Abaddon and Captain Axeman found a way into Wolveshaven?
4.0 out of 5 stars I Am Legend meets 28 Days Later 14 Aug 2013
By Jeremy Hochhalter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Fallen Is Babylon is a smart take on the apocalypse, especially in the storm of zombie and end of the world novels pouring out of the publishing machine lately. It focuses mainly on one character, Vann Arnett, survivor of the vampire plague. It smacks of I Am Legend (the book, not the movie), but has it's own thought process and twists. The vampire plague doesn't affect all people the same, and therefore you get a wide variety of baddies to imagine. Some vamps keep their wits, while others are degenerate forms of their previous selves. Some of those who retain their intelligence have seized the opportunity to take control over the new vampire society, and there are echelons of classes within the new world of undead.

Much of the book follows Vann as he simply struggles to survive...sometimes against the vampires who hunt him, and more often against his own mind. Being stuck in the apocalypse alone would be mentally and emotionally devastating, and I feel like Vann is a good example of a survivor who fights to live every day, yet questions the point of that existence.

Without giving out further spoilers, there are definitely moments of high tension, some decent action, and a lot of watching as a lone survivor tries to make his life worthwhile. I'd definitely recommend the book to readers who enjoyed I Am Legend, or the movie 28 Days Later, as it seems like an interesting meld of the two concepts!
4.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical end of humanity story 14 Aug 2013
By sully - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Fallen is Babylon by Michael Wentela is not your typical end of the world story. It reminded me of Richard Matheson's I am Legend. It is the story of one man who is left alive after a plague kills off most of humanity. The catch is those who survive have become vampire like people called the Kindred. The story centers on Vann Arnett whose daughter died and his wife became one of the Kindred. It is not a big explosion gun blazing epic but rather more of how he copes with his new life style and keeping himself sane. His trusty companion is his dog and he talks to it often. Usually these stories never seem to have the heros worrying about being the last man on Earth just the body count. Wentela gives a story that paints a more realistic picture of what life would be like surronded by a new species of humanity. It makes you think which is human now the Kindred or the last man?
