Sky2 - Detritus Machine: Post-Apocalyptic Thriller.
Can you imagine a barren world, just behind the verizon? Then you will be at home with the generation-x work, Sky2 Detritus Machine (Post-Apocalyptic Thriller), by William Amerman. This close to the edge, life-like account of a world torn apart in the midst of a global pandemic, follows Nick Burke, ten years prior to the events of Sky1, Nick embarks on the assignment of a lifetime, descending deep within the World to Ground 42, the city of Muldoin. In this city, personal space is expressly and strategically restricted, and the scarcity of ethics and world balance governs all aspects of life; these urban struggles are what propels Nick to bring a power struggle between the aged bureaucrats and other warring factions under control, in the fast-paced, thrill ride, and written much in the styling of Hunger Games. Nick must not only endeavor his family and followers out of harm’s way, but discover the true scourge of humanity, the evil vices each of us soothingly retain, and in doing so, try and determine if he can in fact trust anyone he has come to know and rely on, while on this hellish journey to reclaim the world as they once knew it to be.
The true malady of this story, was in my ability to not put it down! This book is a spring must-read for post-apocalyptic genre fans! I got this book to review as an ebook on Amazon and could not put the book down.
About the author :
William Amerman was born in Houston, Texas and obtained his Bachelors degree in English from The University of Texas - Austin, way back in the last century. He lived in Austin for eight years, then moved to Denver, Colorado to explore the whole "mountain man" lifestyle. In Denver he met a cute Dutch girl on a ski slope, whom he quickly wooed and followed back to her native country, The Netherlands. He married the cute Dutch girl in 1999 and they spent the next 7 years raising two sons and a sadly over-weight hound in a suburb of Amsterdam before moving back to the US in 2003. Their third son was born in 2005.
He received his MBA in Finance from Santa Clara University in 2009 and currently holds a "real" job in Information Technology in order to feed his three sons, but manages to write in the mornings and on weekends. His latest efforts are directed towards finishing a futuristic thriller trilogy based on a simple idea he had one late Saturday morning lying in bed, looking at the sky through a skylight window in the roof; proving that getting up early can be a hazard to creative thinking!
