– Thrillers That Make You Think

Post-apocalyptic Book Recommendations

Exile has now been out for over a week and I’ve been having fun watching which books it’s had time next to in the Amazon charts.

I even woke up last Sunday to find it next to Stephen King, which was a nice surprise:

Exile next to Stepehn KIng in the Alternative History chart

It’s prompted me to come up with a list of post-apocalyptic books that I think you might enjoy as companions to Exile. Some of them have similar themes while others are quite different.

So here are some recommendations for you:

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

The Wolf Road by Beth LewisSince the Damn Stupid turned the clock back on civilization by centuries, the world has been a harsher place. But Elka has learned everything she needs to survive from the man she calls Trapper, the solitary hunter who took her in when she was just seven years old.

So when Elka sees the Wanted poster in town, her simple existence is shattered. Her Trapper – Kreagar Hallet – is wanted for murder. Even worse, Magistrate Lyon is hot on his trail, and she wants to talk to Elka.

Available in paperback and in ebook for 0.99 on Amazon UK and in paperback on Amazon US.

Final Winter by Iain Rob Wright

Final Winter by Iain Rob WrightIt’s snowing…
Over every inch of the Earth…
But that’s just the start…

Available on Kindle Unlimited and in paperback on Amazon UK and on Amazon US.

Hurst by Robin Crumby

Hurst by Robin CrumbyAt the end of the world, surrounded by the tidal waters of the Solent, the survivors of a pandemic flu virus hide behind the high walls of a Tudor fortress. Scraping a living far away from the smoking ruins of the cities, they wait in hope.

When the arrival of outsiders threatens to tip the balance of power, the people of Hurst are faced with a desperate choice: set aside their differences and join an alliance that promises new hope or unite against the newcomers and their plans for reconstruction. Who can be trusted? Only time will tell.

Available on Kindle Unlimited and in paperback on Amazon UK and on Amazon US.

Thicker Than Water by Rachel McLean

Thicker Than Water book coverAnd of course, I can’t resist including Exile – now retitled as Thicker Than Water 😉

Catastrophic floods have devastated England and left half of London homeless. Six years on, the Dyer family think they have found safety on the North Yorkshire coast.

But the family is haunted by memories of the journey north and the loss of their mother Sonia. And a bitter power struggle threatens to tear siblings Jess and Ben apart.

When Jess responds to a distress call at sea, she brings the family’s worst nightmare to their door. Robert Cope, a figure from Ben’s past, is intent on revenge – at any price.

Available on Kindle Unlimited and in paperback on Amazon.

Happy Reading!

I hope there are some books in there you enjoy – happy reading!
