From Goodreads:
In a heart-racing thriller described as Falling Skies meets The Walking Dead, Jennie struggles to find a safe place for what’s left of her family. But it seems as though there is no place sacred, no place secure. First the aliens attacked the sun, making it dimmer, weaker, and half what it used to be. Then they attacked the water supply, killing one-third of Earth’s population with a bitter contaminate. And when they unleash a new terror on humankind, the victims will wish for death, but will not find it…When the world shatters to pieces around her, will Jennie find the strength she needs to keep going?

SPOILER ALERT: my synapse
This is the type of book I usually love, end of the world, with aliens, monsters and such. The aliens show up and contaminate of water, mess with our sun and then do nothing for months. Their ships hover over the earth silently. When alien creature appear and attach people, they don't wound to kill, just infect. The infected turn in an hour and then attack other humans. They become zombies  and the goal of all victims that are bitten is to infect others.

The characters are well developed. Jennie, a young headstrong woman that is very family oriented. She becomes the sole protector for her five year old brother. She has a unwavering faith in god that repels the alien creatures.

There are two brothers, Hugh and Brad, one good and one evil. For the reader it is easy to tell who is which.  However Jennie is not privileged to all the information that we are so it is much harder for her to know who is really the good guy.

Mickey is five years old and has seen enough horror to last most people a lifetime. He is a very sweet and caring child. With his sister, Jennie's encouragement he will withstand all this trauma.

End Of Dreams, The Immortal Destiny
By Kim Faulks
First we have Eve.  Her life has been hard, very hard.  She leaves home to get away from an abusive, alcoholic mother.  Eve would rather work two jobs and barely survive than go back to that. Hell.  Eve finds herself pregnant and alone.  Not only is she having a baby, but it is a special being that is wanted by at least two different immortal groups, who will stop at nothing to get him.

Next is police officer, Adley, who is obsessed with find the child serial killer that tortured and savagely murdered his nephew.  Adley is willing to end his career and/or lost his life to destroy this threat to society.  For him, it is personal.

Edric is the serial killer and he is scarier than hell.  He really loves his work.  Edric needs to hear to pleds and cries of his victims.  He taunts Adley.  When he suddenly changes his method of operation and starts killing and mutilating pregnant women, Adley is even more determined to find him. 

Then we have Mercy, a blood thirsty vampire, who recruits Edric.  Can you guess how she got her name?  Edric is in love with Mercy.  Mercy takes orders from a high vamp, that she calls God.  The vampires want Eve’s baby.  Guess who they want to use to get him for them.

The family, are good guys, the ones who keep the balance between good and evil so humans can exist.  This group is made up of immortals, a werewolf, vampires, and others, who have lived and fought together for centuries.  They want Eve’s baby also, but the want to protect him.  They have to protect the unborn child at all cost, even the loss of lives, to maintain the balance.

When Eve escapes an attack from Edric and Mercy, she is on the run.  She meets Adley and he becomes even more determined to stop Edric and now to protect Eve and her unborned child. 

My opinion:
I totally loved this book.  There is evil, good, scary and love.  I was given this book for review and I can’t express how grateful I am.  This is not a book I would have chosen at random, but it is one of the most amazing ones that I have read.  Kim Faulk’s serial killer is one of the scariest people I have read about.  He is cold blooded without remorse.  Edric loves his work.  He is pure evil.
All the characters are well developed and I really want Eve to win and live happily ever after.  She is the underdog that just keeps on getting up when life knocks her down.  Eve does not know the meaning of quit.  Even though she is fragile, when she is fighting for someone she loves she is bad-assed.

Adley is the knight in shiny armor to the rescue.  He is a big bad cop, that has a hard time showing his feelings, but he is willing to risk everything to stop this killer.

This is the first book that I have read by Kim Faulks, but I guarantee it will not be the last.  As a matter of fact, I can’t wait to get to her new book, Secrets Room.  Great Work Kim

About this author

I have been an avid reader for longer than I can remember, desiring the darker, edgier works of Bram Stoker, Stephen King, Dean Koontz. I first started writing in High School giving that away when my first attempt was nothing more than dribble. I wish now that I kept at it, pursued it with a hunger that I currently possess. 

Writing is my passion, it is what fuels the fires inside of me and it is an all-or-nothing furnace that keeps me up at all hours. 

I am married to a wonderful supportive husband, I have 2 wonderful kids and the best friends that I have waited some 35 odd years to meet.
