Since Tomorrow by Morgan Nyberg

I received a copy from the the author, through the publishing company, in exchange for an honest review.

Set in the future after multiple events leave Earth a desolate wasteland, SINCE TOMORROW follows the story of a few main characters and their fellow survivors. Everyone receives a new name in a time when not enough people are left for last names to matter. Frost, Noor, and William struggle to eke out a living in ramshackle leftovers of a once great yesterday. Small communities form, and inevitably turn against each other. With the other side bent on destruction, Frost's community has to choose whether to succumb or fight for a new tomorrow.

A big fan of dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction, I was skeptical at first if I was enjoying such a bleak tale. The author starts out slow, but packs a big punch about halfway through. As you start to care about the characters, it's easier to imagine the world in which they're now living.

As much as the first part bored me, the second half wowed me. It seems that Nyberg hit his stride when describing action scenes. Each character started to develop their own rhythm and speech patterns. The ending is bittersweet, and that's all I will tell you. :) Happy reading.
