“This is a book I did not want to write.”
William Forstchen wrote the excellent book series that began with One Second After which if you have not read, you need to because it is a good writing about having to rebuild society after the slate is, if not clean at least it gets a good swipe of a dirty rag. The words above is how he began this book and by the time you finish it, you will understand why.
Days of Wrath will make you mad at several levels, especially because it is all too plausible and simply tells you there will be no happy endings, just unabashed horror. And it will scare you because the model is so simple and achievable, you wonder how come it has not been implemented to which I believe the answer is has not been implemented yet, but it is probably coming and worse.
At 171 pages, it is supposed to be a quick read. It was not for me as I had to put it down several times to process what I read.
If you want great dashing heroes and happy endings, this is not it.
If you feel you must be ready, then please read it and find out a speck of what we will have to go through.
