In My Own Words:
I'm an Irishman living in England who enjoys the pleasure that books give - both reading them and writing them. The advent of the Kindle has been wonderful as it is so easy to try new authors and not overload my book shelves in the process.

I love to travel, cook and share a bottle of good wine. Apart from these essentials of life I also read a lot and play chess. Then there are my other interests - ancient history, geology, philosophy and mythology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable build up, 30 July 2014
I enjoyed reading this book as I like exploring fiction that deals with the fall of human civilisation etc but in a way that incorporates adventure and a good plot.

This book dealt with the prepping bit and with the building up of characters' story lines and laid the foundation for future volumes that will I assume cover the next steps in the fall and attempted recovery of the human race.

I liked getting to know where the characters have come from and something of who they are, rather than just discover them as the world falls apart.

I look forward to the next book
The Belial Stone (The Belial Series Book 1) by R.D. Brady
I certainly enjoyed reading this book - a good adventure yarn with enough of a foundation in ancient myth to be of interest to me. There were enough gaps left in the background to the story to make another novel something to look forward to.

This was an interesting story given that as I was reading it I was seeing on the TV news the renewed clash between Israel and Hamas (July 2014). While I liked the plot I did struggle a little with getting a feel for the characters but what I enjoyed was the religious/political context of the plot.
