It’s happened. Billions went to bed and billions never woke up.

Overnight the world as we know it is gone. Those who remain are mostly lost. A few know what to do and are ruthless in doing it.

To avoid being one of the dead, Bill Arthur leaves the city to find a place in the country he can call home. With a handful of friends, he draws on his knowledge and starts rebuilding a new world. A better world. Until he meets someone else who wants to be the boss.

Filled with holy zeal, the Reverend Jedidiah Powers wants to make Rocheport a city of God and fights Bill every step of the way to get what he wants. Even if it means killing people to do so.

The Morning Star is not your everyday zombie-filled post-apocalyptic novel. It’s about working together, independence, freedom, and good old-fashioned know-how. Preppers, survivalists, homesteaders, libertarians will find inspiration in The Morning Star.

The Morning Star is the initial book in CW Hawes’s The Rocheport Saga. If you like post-apocalyptic classics such as Earth Abides, The Day of the Triffids, Death of Grass, and Terry Nation’s Survivors, you’ll enjoy this series that is thoughtful and captivating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from post-apocalyptic story CW Hawes's book The Morning Star (The Rochefort Saga, #1) made me think of the quote by Socrates's,"The unexamined life is not worth living." The post-apocalyptic story has been told many different ways and I have read a good number of them. I enjoyed the main character - Bill Arthur. Having an older main character was a nice twist and the way Bill gathers people and a wife does gives one hope for humanity. This first book seems to be the start of a new world where Bill is working on survival first and then there are hints that he has plans to use steam technology as to not loose the knowledge the human race has acquired. It is obvious the author and therefore his character is well read and uses philosophy and a variety of penned ideas as a way to mentor how he approaches daily problems of survival from other humans, animals, and rebuilding a conscience society. I look forward to the next in the series.
