Recommended Reading - After the Sky

Recommended Reading - 5 Stars
Book Review of After the Sky by Milo James Fowler

After the Sky (book 1 in Spirits of the Earth series) by my writer friend Milo James Fowler is pretty darn good. It's a "Post Apocalyptic Tale with a Paranormal Twist" according the publisher, Aethon Books. That's an apt description.

I liken it to "The Silos of Wool meets World War Z" - and I'm pretty sure it will appeal to fans of Wool, Stephen King or Dean Koontz, and The Walking Dead.

At a nice and solid 400 pages, you'll get to spend some time with this motley crew of heroes - and you'll want to. There are multiple points-of-view and timeframes, so the storyline takes some attention.

Fowler is a good plotter, however, and you'll be rewarded with an engrossing tale that will leave you wanting to read the rest of the books in the series. I've read numerous stories by this author and he handles the long form just as well as the shorter works I'm familiar with.

(Disclaimer: Yes, I got a free ARC from the publisher, but I also bought it as a pre-order because it was that good, check my Verified Purchase tag on Amazon! Oh and if you like my review, will you click HELPFUL when the review goes live on Amazon? Thanks. You can also follow me and read my Goodreads review here.)
