Dayfall: A Novel

We rated this book:


Dayfall by Michael David Ares shows the start of a nuclear winter, in patches, all along the Northern hemisphere. The darkness and isolation have only brought crime and isolation to the shadows of Manhattan, and when the sun slowly starts to reappear, crimes and panic start to break out even more. A serial killer starts to make their way through Manhattan, leaving a bloody path in their wake, leaving young detective Jon Phillips scrambling to find the serial killer before Dayfall begins.

Dayfall is action packed, fast paced, and hugely character driven, with twists and turns that kept me reading. I found some scenes, mainly the action-packed ones, to be more cinematic, as the author goes into detail and explains how the scenes unfold, and some scenes seemed to drag on, but the author tended to get into detail. After finishing Dayfall, I felt as though the author did not describe the world well at first, but from what details I got, I was able to think of the places in the novel, even if they were not accurate.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
