One horrifying day will change the life of sixteen-year-old Shane Tucker and every other kid in the world.

In a span of mere hours, the entire adult population is decimated, leaving their children behind to fend for themselves and deal with the horrific aftermath of the freak occurrence. As one of the newly made elders in his small town, Shane finds himself taking on the role of caretaker for a large group of juvenile survivors. One who just happens to be Kelly Douglas—an out-of-his-league classmate—who, on any other day, would have never given Shane a second glance.

Together, they begin their quest to find out why all of the adults were slaughtered. What they find is even more horrifying than anything they could have expected—the annihilation of the adults was only the beginning. Shane and his friends are not the unlucky survivors left to inherit this new, messed-up planet. No, they are its next victims. There is an unknown power out there, and it won’t stop until every person in the world is dead.

Take a deep breath before you start The Last Orphans Series. This action adventure series filled with cinematic science fiction action, end of the world apocalyptic events, and heart pounding thrills will leave you enthralled from beginning to end.

    The plot may be the same as other books, but I loved it. This was a book I was able to set down and pickup whenever in class, and I was always excited to read the next bit.
  • Very good book!

    By Cheyenne G3
    It was definitely worth the read! Although it may be long, if you have the time I would recommend reading it! I would warm people who are very squirmish with blood and stuff though, for this book might freak you out. Anyway I would highly suggest readying this book!

  • A little much...

    By Sammi142
    This is a great book for Young Adults over 15. It’s a little bit overwhelming in the beginning. (Pages 1-70) lots of death, swearing, murder scenes, you get the point. Anyways, it’s a great book.
  • Good book

    Wow this was a page turner. From the very beginning the story just sucked me in and I did not want to put it down. The characters were very well thought out and easy to identify with. There was some repetition in Shane's thoughts about Kelly and the explanations about childhood friends. Otherwise just great! Can't wait to read the next book in this series.
