Brutal and Love Affirming Post-Apocalyptic Romantic Suspense

Commodity is another phenomenal read from Shay Savage. It’s a brutal yet love affirming romantic suspense set in a post-apocalyptic world. I was previously blown away by her novel Transcendence (click on title for review). I love the author’s voice and one clicked this as soon as I saw it! I’m partial to post-apocalyptic reads – I find it fascinating how they explore what happens to society’s mores once law and order and technology break down. In Commodity only a few women have survived (you will need to read the book to find out why) and as such have become little more than a commodity used in the worst possible way by those who covet power and influence.

Prior to the apocalypse Hannah, the heroine of the tale, was en route to give evidence in a major people trafficking trial, one in which she was the main prosecution witness.  She had been assigned her own protector, Falk, a bodyguard. Falk has his own code of honour and even though circumstances have changed and the world is no longer what it was, he is going to protect this woman come hell or high water. I just LOVED his badass alpha character! Quite how far he will go to protect her and why becomes evident as the story unfolds, Suffice to say I was utterly captivated by the read, their growing relationship and the unfolding danger and suspense. I particularly enjoyed how the author tells the story through the points of view of both the hero and heroine at various points in the narrative.

Their romance is far from instantaneous. Both characters have complex back stories which are revealed to the reader and to each other as. Given Hannah’s past, trust is a major issue and it needs to be earned as the two are thrown ever closer in the inevitable roles of protector and protected. There is a great deal of sexual tension and  some very passionate and heartfelt scenes.  Their relationship is fragile and under constant threat given the situation they find themselves in. Be warned – there are some horrific scenes of violence in the book (some of it sexual) and a number of twists in the tale, including one huge curveball – Shay Savage style!

A super post-apocalyptic read to lose yourself in.

  Survival Foods of the Zombie Apocalypse

A good many factors are going to become important if we ever were unfortunate enough to find ourselves in a zombie apocalypse. In addition to weapons and shelter, eventually, food is going to be an issue. When the Walmarts and Piggly Wigglys of the world are picked clean or filled with a shuffling horde of human chompers, what then?

Well, my friends, preparation is going to be key, and in a world where it’s survival of the fittest, we’re going to have to learn to collect and store food like a pack of winter-scared squirrels. Food won’t keep forever though, so here are a few ideas for snacks with long shelf lives.

Dry Pasta and Flour – Shelf life: 2-8 years

White Rice – Shelf life: 10 years

Canned Meats, vegetables and Fruits – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Coffee & Tea – Shelf life: 2-5 years
