Aftermath by Tom Lewis | Book Review

(After the Fall #1)

Published: March 28th 2015

Synopsis:

The end of the world came fast. Between the time the warning had sounded on the TV, till when 16-year-old Paige O’Connor awakened sometime later, civilization had been crushed.

The attacks had come by “them” – those things in the ships in the sky that had appeared suddenly, and without warning.

And as Paige would soon discover, the attacks had only been the beginning.

Aftermath is the first book in the new After the Fall dystopian action series, which follows a young girl’s struggle for survival in the wake of civilization’s collapse, and humanity’s domination by an alien race of beings.

I will most assuredly not be getting good grades this year… Oops! Better get to it. Exams almost over, though, woo-hoo! Hopefully I’ll be able to finish up the many rough drafts of my reviews that I have pending soon.

Teaser Tuesday #7 (May 26): Aftermath by Tom Lewis & Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Hello! Teaser Tuesday is a meme hosted by Jenn @ A Daily Rhythm, and all you have to do to join in is post a teaser or two of the page you’re on in your current read.

So, I’m currently reading Aftermath by Tom Lewis and Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Here are one teaser from both:

“Paige”, she smiled, watching the back and forth between them, as she shook his hand. The kid seemed friendly enough, if not a little full of himself. He looked to be a few years younger than Paige, skinny as a rail, and with a face full of pimples. She was sure she could take him in a fight, but quickly brushed that thoughts aside. If he could help her find Chad, then he was her new best friend.

They both listened for any sounds in the night. The window was open just a crack, and it was quiet outside. The tom cats had fallen silent, probably licking their wounds. For a moment Maggie thought she could hear the sea breaking in the distance, but perhaps it was only the traffic on the nearby motorway.

What do you think of these teasers? What are your teasers for this week? Let me know in the comments below or link your post! 🙂 Happy Tuesday!
