Screechers: A Post-Apocalyptic Novella by: Kevin J. Kennedy and Christina Bergling

I received this book to give an honest review.

44302513. sy475

Title: Screechers
Author: Kevin J. Kennedy and Christina Bergling
Pages: 88

In the apocalyptic fallout of the burned world, the screecher is a massive beast evolved to kill and built for survival. One screecher abandons its home among the crushed remnants of a city and moves to explore the wider world. Unbeknownst to it, one of its surviving nephews decides to tag along.
Far away, across the dusty sand dunes, three men flee the smoldering ashes of their community along with their regrets, looking for a new place to survive.
These two stories, of screechers and humans, alternate and dance around each other before the creatures and men intersect and weave into one story.
In the scorched remains, everything struggles to survive. The end of the world produced mutated monsters beyond imagination. When worlds collide, when man meets monster, who will survive in this new world?

My Rating:

This book was a bit different than my normal read. It was enjoyable for me though I wanted more backstory. More of how did this happen? What made these creatures huge? What happened to the settlement? To me this was kind of two different things combining into one. We start off with the screechers who are looking for food and trying to survive to a group of boys trying to learn how to live without their community. I can say the cool battle that happens around the middle is pretty wicked.
