A man and his daughter drive into a massive meteor shower that disrupts their lives, but it’s only the beginning. It’s the beginning of the end, or is it? An Apocalyptic tale that focuses on individuals trying to maintain love, hope and family amongst death and dying.

quoteOverall a quite good story with believable
characterization & situations.


quoteYou wrote a truly remarkable story, imaginative,
realistic,grisly, and finally Pollyanna-ish/Adam
and Eve-ish, together with Good over Evil.  You
certainly couldn’t have included any more to
encompass the the best and worst of human
behavior.  Your imagination was very fascinating.

Did I like it?  No!  Could I stop reading it?  NO!
Did I like the final ending?  YES, because I’m a
Romantic at heart.

Anyway, you wrote a good, interesting and
fascinating yarn.



quoteThank you for a unique approach to a common topic.
Dark, yes, but most of the world is dark. Your
take is probably more likely than most of what is
out there for post apocalyptic on SOL. Many thanks
for writing and posting.


quoteWOW!! What an ending, tears and all! Kind of set
hard on this 90 year old man, when I think of my
own extended life on borrowed time.

I loved every word, every emotionally charged


quoteThis is a marvelous story – and it does end on a
note of hope! This was not always an
easy read – but I had little trouble with the end
– your notes had prepared me – thank you for that!

Thank you ever so very much,
