I read the trilogy in four days and consider it to be one of the best things I have ever read, wonderful story, fantastic characters and very exciting.

I was very disappointed in this last book of the trilogy. The first two - "Without Warning" and "After America" were much better. I found this one rather tedious. Birmingham repeatedly gets bogged down in page after page of descriptive writing that really adds nothing to the plot, and simply induces you to skip paragraphs, desperate to GET ON WITH THE STORY!! The number of times we have to endure descriptions of the devastation in America seems endless - and they're all pretty much the same. And the culinary contributions! I'm really not interested in the characters' choice of food whenever they take a meal. Who cares?

I also have to take issue with the super heroines portrayed here. Mr Birmingham obviously has a thing about dominant women. Alright up to a point, but his character Caitlin is simply beyond the
pale. A cross between Superwoman and Rambo, she would make old Jack Reacher shake in his shoes. I just don't buy it, and believe me, I'm no mysogynist. We follow the vengeance trail of three of these super heroines, all at the expence of what is really happening in this alternative version of the world, post "The Wave" and BOY is it a long trail.

The first two books were real page turners. This one is more of a chapter turner, and not in a good way.

Read books one and two, and waited for book three. Well it was worth the wait. All of the story lines come together in a plot that holds you. Sadly there will be no book four.

Not the best post-apocalyptic novel I've read but certainly not the worst. The 'action' parts remind me of modern films - chases and explosions. Occasionally the author becomes immersed in his own vision of what such a world could be like when you'd prefer him to be getting on with the story.
By far the most original and interesting character is the Echelon agent Caitlin - would like to read more about her.

I confess I have not read the first two in the series, therefore take this review with a pinch of salt. I remarked to my wife that it was only after 530 pages that something started to happen. I suspect that JB has some sense of what goes into a good book and enjoys filling out characters and setting the background for a stand-alone book. This book is one of those that switch between relatively unrelated story lines. To care about the character, you need to have read the previous books - or at least I found it difficult to have much sympathy with any of the heroines.

There was not enough material for a book of this length. It should have been edited hard and a few more proper threads written in. A decent enough finale but way too late. I am unlikely to read any more of JB's books as there are others that I know I will like. I suspect he is better than this one but 530 pages is really too many.

This is, after all, the final instalment in the "After America" series so if you've got this far then you have certain expectations. I expected a roller-coaster ride of adventure and mayhem... not so. This is a "slower" read. Politics plays a bigger part, as does the intrigue. The three female parts; Jules, Sophia and Caitlin play a central, heroic - and even, at times, less in control - role and other characters, who played only a side part in the second of the series, return to the fore (whilst others who played a big role in the second book stand in the shadows). The slow build up of frustration (on the part of our heroines) and their need to find "closure" erupts in a fireball of action in the final part of this very good read. I enjoyed the series.

Found the first in the series in a bookshop, and had to get the follow on books, great read. Only complaint is trying to remeber all the sub plots as the book does jump around a bit between charactors but well worth it!! i would recomend this series!!
