    I ve been a long time admirer of post apocalyptic survivor epics Whether the scenarios be captured in print The Road , Engine Summer , A Canticle for Leibowitz or celluloid Mad Max , Survivors , The Walking Dead matters not There is something so darkly delectable about a well told PASE Survival of the fittest, and all that Which brings me to The Morning Star the first installment of The Rocheport Saga The story is told in a diaristic format by Bill Arthur an old codger by his own admission and while Arthur is advanced in years, he is nevertheless blessed with both a brilliant mind and the physicality of a man half his age Personally, I found him a fascinating figure, possessing a moral and street smart intellect that continually had me thinking Yeah, this is definitely the guy I d hook up with if such an event were to occur And because of Arthur, we are presented with a work unlike so much which passes for bestselling fiction these days that has true and meaningful depth As Arthur treks from Minneapolis to Rocheport, Missouri, he meets a slew of fascinating individuals who share his vision and seek to salvage their world from the barbarous hell it has already become I could go on and on, but will end with this I think The Morning Star contains the perfect mix of drama, horror, and philosophy Mr Hawes has created an epic masterwork here, one w...

    It s impossible for any of us to know what we d do, how we d react, or what we might become in times of crisis until we re actually put in that situation Even the smartest, most experienced people can make mistakes in tight spots under a split second s decision, maybe with disastrous consequences.And this is at the best of times Now try imagining it in a post apocalyptic era.All of the above and , is what The Morning Star teaches us.First in The Rocheport Saga, author C.W Hawes follows the travels of survivor and widower Bill Arthur, told in first person as he scrapes together every resource he can, and explores the relationships he develops with a growing number of people on the way as they try to settle down in Rocheport, where they hope to build a new life using what essential survival skills their fair, pragmatic leader Bill can teach them.Reading this book, one finds it very difficult not to ask themselves about how they might also behave in that situation how tough, strong or how valuable or not they may be t...

    Let me confess up front I don t like post apocalyptic fiction But I do like the writing of CW Hawes So I had to overcome some bias in order to buy this book in the first place I m glad I did It may be the best thing I have read among his books a taut, well conceived gripping page turner I don t use those reviewer s clich s lightly This is a terrific book If most of the population died suddenly what would happen no really, what would actually happen as the electrical infrastructure failed as farms, homes and hospitals were left untended Who would survive and who would thrive Bill Arthur is probably a pretty decent man who has to do some pretty harsh things in an increasingly violent and desperate society And yet he has the skills and temperament to succeed Hawes has clearly worked hard, visioning how people would act how they might respond to these circumstances His genius in this book is showing the lengths to which people might go to continue living even while keeping Arthu...

    The end of the world and its beginning.The Rocheport Saga is a deeply entertaining and thought provoking end of the world series written by CW Hawes, the talented author of Justinia Wright series and the Pierce Mostyn Investigations.Whilst there are no walking dead, apocalyptic flesh eating plagues, or unrelenting cybernetic machines to contend with, the true horror lies in what we ourselves often become when faced with the end Mankind is the true horror here.CW Hawes post apocalyptic vision is one that will appeal to all those that have wondered What If Could you survive in a world without the trappings so many rely upon today Would you know what to do without Google or Wikipedia Through the protagonist, Bill Arthur, CW Hawes not only tells us a story of survival and hope but also provides us with the blueprint to rebuilding all that was lost and perhaps make better the second time around.The cast of the story is well rounded, providing someone for everybody to either love or hate To some extent, the story has a touch of Terry Nation s...

    Often times the concern with prepper fiction is that the main character becomes nothing than a mouthpiece for discussing survival tactics This is surely not the case with CW s The Morning Star The plot and character development are expertly woven into a journal entry type narrative, incorporating survival techniques and a strong morality to this work This is a unique contribution to the post...

    CW Hawes s book The Morning Star The Rochefort Saga, 1 made me think of the quote by Socrates s, The unexamined life is not worth living The post apocalyptic story has been told many different ways and I have read a good number of them I enjoyed the main character Bill Arthur Having an older main character was a nice twist and the way Bill gathers people and a wife does gives one hope for humanity This first book seems to be the start of a new world where Bill is working on survival first and then there are hints that he has plans to use steam technology as to not loose the knowledge the human race has acquired It is obvious the author and therefore his character is well read a...
