The world is in chaos from a two-day battery of explosions in many of its major cities. A week after the explosions, journalist Adam Grey wakes up in the hospital. He pieces together the events leading to his injury, involving a woman named Angela. Senator Cyrus Reardon has been appointed the new President of the United States' decimated government. A politician who isn't generally fond of his peers, he's faced with leading a discordant provisional Cabinet, addressing the nation's growing panic, and trying to separate fact from fiction. Confronted with the truth behind the attacks, they--along with the world at large--are forced to reconsider conventional assumptions about human nature and possibility. Everything we know is until we find out otherwise...
First off I want to say that I really enjoyed this book, yes there were a few things that I didn't like, but overall I really did enjoy reading it. Paul West, did an amazing job taking a subject like this one and creating a great story out of it.
First Cause did take me a little bit to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down at all. I just had to finish it and stayed up pretty late doing so. This book is a very well planned and thought out story, filled with a great plot and characters. I will say at some parts I was a bit lost, but I really did enjoy how the author took past flashbacks and mixed them in with the present day of the characters life.
I can't wait to see where author, Paul West takes the second story in this series, he pretty much left it wide open to take off in the next one. I really do hope he starts from right where he left off.
First Cause is a great book and I would recommend it to a lot of my friends that like these kind of books.
