Hell’s Children by John L. Monk

Jack’s parents’ home schooled him, and not with the traditional lessons that every other kid learns in public school. Jack’s parents teach him practical skills, self–defence, and strategic thinking. When they die along with every other person over sixteen he is fully equipped to deal with the apocalyptic new world he lives in. In a world fraught with fear, hunger, and violence, only Jack, and his closest friends can find a way to thrive.

This post-apocalyptic thriller is riveting from start to finish. Jack is an interesting teenager with plenty of skills, but the realistic portrayal of gang warfare and crime within the setting provides us with serious conflict. The book gets us to question issues of morality as the different characters have to make terrible choices to survive. I found it hard to put down because just as the group went through one crisis another seemed to spring up from nowhere. The style of writing is uncomplicated and smooth.

If you are interested in prepping, apocalyptic novels, or survival skills, then you will enjoy this book for more than its fictional qualities. The author has obviously spent a lot of time researching the topic and it brought authenticity to the plot. This is my favourite genre and I have read a lot of post-apocalyptic novels and I have to say, this one really hits the spot.
