For those of you who are fans of Al Steiner's "Aftermath" this story is definitely for you. Luckily, I'm a BIG fan of Al's stories and love his style of writing.

As far as I know, the author of this story is fairly new or new to SOL. But, dotB's style smacks of an incredible imagination that's near genius.

I love a good "end of the world" suspense story and although this one wouldn't classify as your 'high tech' story it still hints of lots more to come. It's actually got so much potential that I would do it an injustice by speculating it's end.

The storyline is based around possible natural disasters that could occur in our time. Something has caused the world to experience massive earthquakes and Tsunamis and our 'hero' is just becoming aware of what's going on as the story begins.

He finds a stranded female boater amidst a shore of total destruction. He is concerned about his home and family and he and his "femme fatale" set out to help them return to his home.

The sex in this story is actually woven in very well and it's HOT! The characters are all plausible and have the kinds of personalities we've come to love in our erotic stories. They're also very well stated.

This whole story is awesome and it's not even finished yet.

I can't wait to see more from this author!
