Even the suburbs aren't safe from the end of the world…

Daisy Danner is your typical busy stay-at-home mom. On most days she tries to keep her head down and finish her never-ending work. Today is different. Today is the apocalypse.

When an eerie attack starts to tear the neighborhood and the world apart, Daisy shuts the doors and prays that her husband Justin will return soon. Her mind begins to fray as she tries to cope with the possibility of single motherhood in a menacing new world.

With her mental and physical abilities compromised, Daisy must keep her family together as the world falls apart.

TV Apocalypse is a psychological apocalyptic thriller set in an all-too-real suburb. If you like end-of-the-world tales, humor mixed with tragedy, and incredible suspense, then you'll love Kathleen Rover's chilling glance into post-apocalyptic suburbia.

My Review:

Daisy Danner is your typical stay at home mom with two very wonderful kids; five year old Ian and three year old Darcy. One morning Daisy is woken up by her two little ones wanting her to fix the TV. Daisy wakes slowly as she has the worst headache ever. She has never had migraines before but wonders if that is what is going on. When she finally makes her way downstairs to the living room she finds out the TV is just fine but that there is just an emergency broadcast running across the TV telling everyone to turn off their TVs and turn on the radio to find out what is going with the world.

When she turns on the radio Daisy learns that there is some kind of virus going around that is causing people to go crazy and start killing people and its cause is somehow related to the TV. So she finally gets the kids settled down with a movie on the DVD player. At this point all Daisy is worried about is keeping her family safe and trying to keep two toddlers occupied without a TV which could turn into an ultimate ordeal in itself.

Daisy is also concerned about her husband Justin as he has not made it home yet. Justin along with a lot of other people not only where he works but other places as well were all sent home until further notice; he was sent home that morning but by that evening he had still not made it home.

While TV Apocalypse is about people going crazy and changing and killing people it is not your average run of the mill zombie story. No the zombie/crazy people in TV Apocalypse are different is so many ways. I loved reading TV Apocalypse and I really liked Daisy and how she was with her kids. She was a great mom and knew how to keep kids happy without screaming at them even though she had the worst headache of her life. Daisy had always depended on her husband to protect her and the kids not that she couldn’t do it herself and it was looking like she just may have to do that but hopefully not. She was a real strong woman and mother. But she also had two very great kids to help her out too. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. TV Apocalypse 2: The Death Box.
