The Last Bus [Novella Review]

Genre - Horror/Sci-Fi
Year Published - 2015
Length - 105 (print) pages
Written by Paul M. Feeney

Rating: 4 Skulls

Plot Summary:
We've all been there - the dreaded early morning commute.
The surly driver; the obnoxious teenagers; the guy who just has to invade your personal space; the awkwardness as everyone avoids any kind of social interaction with anyone else; the frustrations of snarled-up traffic and tail-backs.

For most of us, a trip on public transport is about as bad as it gets.

For these passengers, it's about to get a lot worse.

Jonathon, Justine, and Hanna don't know each other, but they're about to be thrown together as a simple journey to work turns into a race for survival.
Mysterious objects begin to fall from the sky, the early onset of an alien invasion.

Mutated monsters, trigger-happy soldiers, and personality clashes abound on. . .

The Last Bus

Clocking in at just over 100 pages, this super-quick read is a must for any fan of Sci-Fi "B" movies.

Feeney is a master at fast character development. You are quickly attached to each of his characters, and you immediately know who you like and who you dislike.

My biggest disappointment with this book is its size - I wanted so much more!!

Aside from the story itself, the best thing about this book is that it has made me a Feeney fan! I am now eagerly awaiting his first full-length novel, which can't come soon enough!

The only way to currently purchase this book is through
I highly recommend that you do so, as it is a signed, limited-edition (only 250 copies!), nicely-bound book.
