I’ve never written a proper, well thought out book review before.
I don’t imagine this review would fall into either category as well, however, I want to entice you to reading a new book by Steve Yeager that seems to have a humorous title, but is far from being a comedy.
Chicken Nuggets – The Raptor Apocalypse
Is a story about what happens after a scientifically created bird of prey is released into the world to greatly diminish the human population with the intent to “start over”. We follow the lives of two main characters, Jesse and Cory after the first five years of the raptor release.
Jesse is a law man from Texas who has seen everyone he cares about fall to the fowl demons, yet somehow, finds the will to continue on living rather than succumb to their razor sharp teeth of death.
Cory is part of the group that engineered this apocalypse, and is forced out of his underground shelter in New York to see why communication has been lost with another groups of his peers in Denver. He must now cross the country, on foot, to reestablish contact with the Denver cell. He is now prey to his own creation and will also witness the life that survivors have grown accustom to in the five year since it all began.
How does it all end? Well – if I told you, you wouldn’t read the book.
I have not read many post-apocalyptic stories, but this one really kept my interest. A little slow to start, Chicken Nuggets becomes a true page turner about a third of the way in and kept hold of my interest through to the end.
Chicken Nuggets – The Raptor Apocalypse is available as an E-book on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. A paperback version can also be purchased on Amazon.
