Luke is a lucky boy, at least in this way he is Thanks to his parents he was sheltered from the lunatic logic that drives Americans each and every day, allowing him immunity to the pettiness that consumes us all Growing up in a bunker has its good points apparently.Excerpt the following cities may be impacted in the next fifteen to twenty five minutes San Diego, California My heart sunk when I read about San Diego I know, I know it s just a story, but a feeling of panic and wonder if it were happening today, right now, how that would really feel swept over me I spent a good portion of my life in San Diego I went to school in San Diego My oldest son was born in San Diego I think part of me would die with the city if one day, one moment, it was gone.Luke s dad, Patrick Mitchell, having been a Marine, had to know that whatever was going on was serious when they announced San Diego was in danger San Diego has a HUGE Military presence Marine Corps Air Station Miramar MCAS Miramar, formerly Naval Air Station NAS Miramar, is a United States Marine Corps installation that is home to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, which is the aviation element of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force It is located in Miramar, San Diego, California, about 10 miles 16 km north of Downtown San Diego Marine Corps Recruit Depot commonly referred to as MCRD San Diego is a United States Marine Corps military installation in where over 21,000 recruits are trained each year The Depot also is the home to the Marine Corps Recruiter School and Western Recruiting Region s Drill Instructors School Naval Base Coronado NBC is a consolidated Navy installation encompassing eight military facilities stretching from San Clemente Island, located seventy miles west of San Diego, California, to the La Posta Mountain Warfare Training Facility and Camp Morena, located sixty miles east of San Diego 32nd Street Naval Station, also located in San Diego, is the largest base of the United States Navy on the west coast of the United States Basically, if San Diego goes, thus goes the country.Excerpt I am getting pretty good with the guitar, too Bringing an instrument, like the guitar, into the shelter was one of the best decisions Luke s dad, Patrick, could have made People often think about food, water, and weapons when setting up their shelter but few remember to take items that will keep them busy and help them to pass the time Luke s family was very well educated as to what to do to keep them from going stir crazy in their bunker I think anyone trying to set up an emergency location needs to take a cue from the Mitchell family.My oldest son, Christopher, taught himself guitar Christopher is incredible at it and is currently looking for a band to join He wants his little brother, Xander, to get into it now Xander plays a bunch of instruments, such as the clarinet, recorder, xylophone, bongos, harmonica, and he just started learning the drums Both Xander and Christopher sing as well I think I will need a music room for them if we are the lucky ones who survive the apocalypse Excerpt The history of religion that you read now is an evolution of a fairy tale based on minimal fact It is obvious that Luke isn t going to just accept that the existence of God is a fairytale, he s going to figure out the truth Luke is still a teenager though, and he s not immune to typical teen distractions.Funny thing is, that this is a current theory today Researchers of the New World Order think they know that people have past lives, but they conceal this knowledge so they can use their own past life knowledge and experience as a weapon This theory is essentially a mixture of Milton William Cooper aka Bill Cooper meets Charles Darwin meets John Locke.Aaron Powell served as a Marine during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2003 with a bachelor of arts in criminal justice and a psychology minor He also completed a second bachelor of arts in business administration at Ashford University, where he graduated with distinction in 2011.It is Aaron Powell s background in psychology that, I believe, allows him to create such in depth characters and storylines Pulling from his own time serving in the Military provides his characters, settings, and plots with a realistic edge that is not found in many author s work today.Excerpt I thought about the dolphin dream again, and the way my parents were holding each other as they stood before the dolphin tank Don t judge a book by its cover I was fully prepared to rib on Aaron Powell for the books coverHow ridiculous to have dolphins on a book about the end times , I thought Well, color me embarrassed, because it makes perfect sense when you read the book The dolphins really tie it all together It s the perfect book cover choice You may not know but in Celtic animal symbolism, the dolphin is regarded as a highly honored creature as it was seen as the protector of sacred wells and sacred water The dolphin, to the Celtic mind, is the watcher of the waters, and the guardians of all things water associated.Pirate lore also hails the dolphin as a symbol of protection Indeed, legend admits dolphin sightings were often exaggerated into fantasies of mermaids Sailors often understood the spirit of mermaids lived in the heart of the dolphin, and ancient stories of the sea refer to dolphins metamorphosing into beautiful sea maidens and mermaids if seen under just the right conditions.In the book, Luke never makes it clear why the dolphins are so important, but they play a huge role in Doomsday Diaries Vol II Trust me when I say it is worth hanging on for Excerpt s no one can change the way it is It has always been this way, and it always will be My God, it has got to get better than this I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book, and the entire series Review provided by DJ Harris aka DJ6ual

    I have read many books in the End of the World genre Many times I feel like I am reading the same thing repeatedly However, this book has a fresh take on the aftermath You can tell Luke s parents are preparing him for anything good or bad that may happen once they leave their safe confines I must admit I was a bit surprised by what they encountered and even shed a few tears towards the end The author did a good job of developing the charecters Overall a good book for summertime reading I have read many books in the End of the World genre Many times I feel like I am reading the same thing repeatedly However, this book has a fresh take on the aftermath You can tell Luke s parents are preparing him for anything good or bad that may happen once they leave their safe confines I must admit I was a bit surprised by what they encountered and even shed a few tears towards the end The author did a good job of developing the charecters Overall a good book for summertime reading I highly recommend it

    Doomsday Diaries by Aaron Powell is a thrilling apocalyptic story told from the first person perspective of Luke Mitchell, who begins the story as a 13 year old being hurried to an underground survival shelter by his mother and father Worldwide nuclear destruction has erupted, and their hometown of Austin was among the first cities destroyed As they rush into their shelter several miles outside of Austin, bright lights to their rear signify the end of the world as they knew it.The beginning Doomsday Diaries by Aaron Powell is a thrilling apocalyptic story told from the first person perspective of Luke Mitchell, who begins the story as a 13 year old being hurried to an underground survival shelter by his mother and father Worldwide nuclear destruction has erupted, and their hometown of Austin was among the first cities destroyed As they rush into their shelter several miles outside of Austin, bright lights to their rear signify the end of the world as they knew it.The beginning of the story focuses on Luke and his parents as they struggle to survive for five years in the cramped but amply supplied shelter They try to live their lives as normally as possible Luke continues to be home schooled, but his curriculum is expanded to include the survival and defensive skills he will need once if he and his family are able to return to life above ground Aaron Powell obviously knows a thing or two about survival preparation and training Significant and realistic details are provided throughout I found the book to move at a believable and page turning pace as I anxiously anticipated the family s return to the surface and what awaited them.When the Mitchells finally venture above ground, they find a New World Order has been established The systematic nuclear destruction of the world had been their doing It is here the story takes a fast paced turn Luke transforms from a home schooled and somewhat na ve farm boy into a super hero as he attempts to rescue his parents from a world where older citizens are of little value and the main purpose of teenagers and young adults is procreation and repopulation.I found the speedy transformation of Luke, still a teen, and how he reacts to what he finds in the New World as stimulating reading, but a little hurried and less believable than the first half of the book I felt the characters introduced at this point the New World Leader, Mr Winthrop, Luke s love lust interest, and the dolphin woman who came to Luke s aid neededtime to develop Doomsday Diaries was a quick enjoyable read, and the stage has been set for new and exciting adventures for Luke Mitchell Aaron Powell is a promising new author worthy of your reading time
