Risen: First Book of the Nameless Chronicle - M. T. Miller (Book Review)

Synopsis:
In the middle of nowhere, a nameless individual rises from the dark. With barely any knowledge apart from how to speak and how to kill, he finds himself in a world gone mad. Worse off, nearly everything that moves is out for his blood.

Not knowing where to turn, the wanderer traverses the desolate landscape of a ruined continent. Along his travels, his mind and body are pushed to their limits as he desperately tries to make sense of what has happened to the world, what he is, and why he exists.

Foe after foe meets their end at his hands, yet each kill only serves to raise more questions. Is he even human? What has happened to the world? Where does his path lead?

The answer lies beyond the blood-stained horizon.

Review:
Full disclosure, I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank M.T. Miller for giving my the opportunity to read this apocalyptic fiction book.

This is a quick read about a man who wakes up from the grave.  He is originally trapped under the ground when he wakes up and needs to crawl out.  Nameless doesn't know what is going on in the world any longer or where he is.   So when the book first starts it jumps right into the action and might be confusing to the reader, but once the book gets going you are able to pick up more and more of what is going on.   As a reader I was able to feel comfortable with the writing style after the first few chapters.

The author sticks close to the original concept of Nameless not knowing what is going on as you basically learn as the narrator/main character learns what is going on.   The book is very fast paced and does cover a lot of ground in a short period of time.  The book makes you want to keep reading to learn exactly what is going on in the world and what is up with Nameless.

The book sets it self up really well for a squeal to be produced, I will be on the lookout to find out what is going to happen next!  

I would say this is a book to read right before bed, it takes your mind off the day.  It is a easy story to follow so you can pick it up and read whenever you are ready.
