I had high hopes for Denise Agnew's Ashfall. I enjoy Sci-Fi romance and especially post apocalyptic scenarios. Sadly, this story fell a little flat for me. It's not a bad story and the idea is sound but the characters fail to deliver. I liked both Mally and Adam but just didn't feel their connection. I also thought that plot lacked an intensity that would have validated the change that had occurred in world. However, I'm interested enough in this world to read the next in the series. This is an entertaining read but I would have liked more of everything.
The world had changed and Mally found herself alone except for a voice on the radio. When trouble came the voice became real as Adam rushes to rescue her. Together they try forge a new life in a new and dangerous place.
A strong-willed woman and a former Air Force pararescueman have learned to survive in a new world forged by an apocalypse no one could have stopped. Isolated and alone, Mally Andretti finds hope in the tantalizing voice she hears on her ham radio, a man who says he’s her friend. But in a world-gone-crazy, danger looms around every corner and it’s hard to know who to trust. Denise A. Agnew presents Ashfall, book one in her exciting new series, The Wasteland Trilogy.
After surviving an apocalypse, lonely Mally should feel safe. Until a deep, mysterious voice over the ham radio invites her into soul deep conversation and awakens mental and physical cravings.
Her voice calls on every fiercely protective instinctive inside Adam, and when she’s in danger he’ll do anything to protect her.
