    I love disaster books and this one hit the spot. The scary part is it could possibly happen.

    This seems to be a new author and I must say that the writing style was very good and, though there were a few errors in words used and punctuation, overall it was better than most for a first book. The author clearly did some good research on the subduction zone, though I think that the accompanying volcanic event would have caused some more notable effects from breathing ash etc than what was described. This would have rated at least a 4 for this fine writing effort.

This would have rated at least a 4 for this fine writing effort. However, I was very disappointed that this good story was used for liberal bashing. This kind of event would truly be a great leveler and impact people liberal, conservative, indifferent and people that were both prepared and unprepared. Why take the steps to denigrate "leftists" who apparently were the only ones trying to cross the border into Oregon and who with the media hijacked words like "compassion" and the other side being "liberty-loving patriots?" There are a lot of "us liberals" who love liberty, own guns and take personal responsibility. The nature of this disaster didn't require the big stretch to slam non-conservatives and I won't continue with more of these books.

The attention to detail had me leaving this book a lot more informed....or smarter without having to stay in a Holiday Inn Express. The character background story and how he/ she relates to the plot was spot on. Did I mention attention to detail? It was amazing. From firearms, to using discarded items the homeless threw out, importance of shoes that fit, FEMA camps, to every physical and mental anguish, I felt like I was living AND feeling their pain....especially for Phil. I cried along with him. I will say this, I was disappointed that the book ended. I wanted it all. Now! If book 2 is as good as this one I am willing to wait. Fellow readers, I hope you enjoy this book as much as I...

The author describes in detail what the break-down in societal norms will look like in the event of any large scale catastrophe that removes life necessities from a large metropolitan area. I'm looking forward to reading more of Mr. Chambers' books in this series as they are released on Kindle Unlimited.

    Cascadia Fallen depicts a rapid desintegration of society; the action presented in the book is occasionally graphic but is not overly sensational. The events are entirely believable. The book's protagonists are depicted in better detail than the antagonists. The political views of the good guys are right leaning without being extreme. I enjoy reading biographies and histories the most, so this book is not the usual sort that I read.

    Well done Austin’s debut novel hits home for anyone who lives in the region. The threat of Rainier/Tahoma blowing is real but this takes so many more angles as the resulting fallout, it was great for personal evaluation. I look forward to see how the main plots grow and come together in the coming sequels.

    Very well written book! I love apocalyptic books and this one didn't disappoint. You have so many different end of times stories, zombies, plague, war, terrorist and aliens. This one is all to scary with events that really could happen. With very well developed characters and story line I highly recommended this book to anyone who likes suspenseful end of time stories!

    A solid first effort, and I'd give it 3.5, if I could. It needs some light editing for typo and grammatical errors, that were scattered throughout, but they weren't enough of an issue to pull me from the storyline.

It needs some light editing for typo and grammatical errors, that were scattered throughout, but they weren't enough of an issue to pull me from the storyline. It was obvious he did his research, as some of the story telling became pedantic in his effort to pass it along to the reader. So we got a rather clinical approach to learning about subduction, tsunami, and volcanic processes, etc... while he completely missed out on the effects of the ash being aspirated into the characters lungs, as none of them even wore a bandana, let alone a filter to keep it out of their airways. Most of the characters would have died of asphyxiation. A lot of effort went into weapon description, and how-to's... move a fallen tree, pull a car out of ditch, build a wall to block flooding, mooring, nuclear encasement, etc... that should have gone into character development. He seems to have a difficult time balancing that aspect. This resulted in me not really developing much of a concern about the characters who SHOULD be carrying the story. I'm really hoping he corrects this in the next book, which I am looking forward to reading. This story is told in multiple POV, within each chapter, with a large cast of characters. The main protagonist is Phil, but we also see a lot of his son, Crane, a little of his daughter, Payton, Navy Captain, Marie Darnell, Dr. Stuart Schwartz, a plastic surgeon, and another Navy person, Carmen Martinez, who is a cook. There are a host of others as well, but the story telling is built around these. Enjoyable read from a promising author.

    You've got more thugs, a megathurst and the eruption of Mt. Rainier. You've got a nuclear sub that's in bad shape. You've got Canadian thug cops, violence and rape.

The story is a good example of how people would have to work strongly together to have a chance at surviving such an apocalyptic disaster. It shows that there will be no reason to expect help of any nature from the government. Prepare, pick your friends and hope for the best is about the best that can happen under this sort of scenario. The book does a very good job of showing the threats and the possibility of survival.

    I was given a free copy of this Audiobook In exchange for an honest review. A massive earthquake too many are dead and this book follows Phil on his survival journey. A kind of base camp has been setup but life in the northwest as they know it is gone, they have to take care of themselves. I am drawn to this type of book and seeing what the characters do with the little they have left to survive on. This book portrays a very realistic earthquake and tsunami situation, can't wait for the sequel!

    Great start This was a great start for the series. The story is believable in that there have been several small quakes in the region lately. The author brings up several good points about the aftermath of a Cascadia event. Since I live near "Bartlett" and the Hood canal, I started re-evaluate my own prep situation. I can't wait to read the next book.

    Excellent story A fresh take on the survivalist/apocalyptic genre. A believable disaster story that follows several different people through their experiences in a massive natural disaster. The characters are well thought out, relatable, and flawed. They feel like people you may know in real life. A great read and I look four to his next book with eager expectation.

    first part, ok I guess. described what MIGHT happen when the "big one" hits PacNW. then turns into a diatribe about "lefties" and I put it down. sorry, Austin, this one was a non-finisher for me and I pretty mush will read anything to the end.

    Good story. Jumps though Jumps too much for my liking and almost needs a map to follow people. The transitions could be better. But the gravity and the true seriousness of this pending hell is not lost. It is not a if but when scenario.
