Prelude to Mayhem

On May 30, 2004, the world transformed. Nearly all signs of civilization vanished, leaving in their wake a bizarre landscape of wilderness, advanced technology and magic, and leaving Harrison Cody very much alone. After weeks of surviving in solitude, he hears a voice on the radio, beckoning him to cross a thousand miles of terrifyingly random terrain to meet her, and any On May 30, 2004, the world transformed.

    Woah! This one had a little bit of everything. Time travel (sort of), fantasy, dinosaurs and scifi gadgetry. Loved it. It takes a while to grasp what is going on (maybe) but that's probably cause it's setting up a four book series. Can't wait to start the next one. Recommended! ...

    I've been wanting to read Static Mayhem ever since I'd read the author's UnHappenings a few years ago; but at the time, he'd mentioned that he was in the process of splitting up Static Mayhem, so I waited and kept half an eye out for it. But when I saw this one come out, I'd kind of so...

    Prelude to Mayhem is one of those books that is completely unpredictable. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, the plot went in a completely different direction. I'm glad this is a series, because after everything that happened in the first book, I still don't know what is go...

    Not sure that this was pure post-apocalyptic as there was a bit of a blend of magic and sci-fi here, but I loved it. The only reason it didn't get a five was it seemed to have an awful lot of things happening all at once in the beginning and I almost put it down as it seemed more fanta...

    See my full review of this title on my book blog, So Few Books, at: https://sofewbooks.blogspot.com/2017/...! I absolutely adored this book! It may very well have been my favorite read of 2016! The conflux of fantasy and sci-fi really intrigued me... [and] the author completely n...

    Oh, this was good. Very, very good. It is hard to cover it all - but to me it hit all the marks dead on. Prelude to Mayhem tells the story of an America (world? one expects so) transformed on May 30, 2004. The result is an unpredictable combination of magic, ultra-tech, dinosaurs, a...

    Prelude to Mayhem is a creative and interesting combination of fantasy, dystopian, and science fiction with two strong central characters. I really enjoyed the book. The story moves along quickly, full of adventures with crisp, clean writing. Delightful bits of humor and quirky weirdne...

    The difficult second album. How could Edward Aubry possibly write anything that lives up to the Unhappenings? Whether he sold his soul or met with a genie, he managed to transport me into a world of wonderment. I like twisted kind of books, where the characters are strong and the p...

    REVIEW I was looking forward to reading this one as it is a mash up of some of my favourite genres. I have been reading more shifter titles so I feel ready for a change and I do like the sound of the blurb when it describes Dorothy, and her setting up a base in a shopping mall when th...

    Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com Apocalyptic tales are right up my alley, so I was expecting a lot from Prelude To Mayham, but was a bit disappointed in the end, as it all felt very messy and a bit too much of everything. The premise is good. After an...

    There are two sections to my review, first for people who?ve never read Static Mayhem and second, for those who have and why they should also read Prelude to Mayhem. If you haven?t read Static Mayhem, then you should definitely read Prelude to Mayhem now! This is a awesome story...

    4.5 stars rounded down* (see below...) Harrison and Dorothy are two of the very few who try to live in the aftermath of a bizarre melding of the present, the future and the magical. How the environment has been twisted, where all this tech junk came from and why the landscape is sud...

    Full review: https://thesnowbookhollow.wordpress.c... I?m going to use a train to describe this book since it occurs in the story. It was like being on a train that starts moving faster and faster that you have to grab onto something to make sure you don?t lift off the ground ...

    Look my brother wrote this, that doesn't mean I had to love it but I did. So don't take my word for it - you'll have to read for yourself and form your own opinion. I have to say I'm really looking forward to the next book. Originally Prelude, or at least some of it (he added a lot), w...

    Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA. Pros: Quirky and audacious blend of post-apocalypse, technology and magic. Characters who are easy to empathise with. Cons: The blend I mentioned might not work for everyone. WARNING! A couple of strong scenes, where bl...

    This was a great introduction to what is sure to be a captivating series. Aubry has created a fantastical post-apocalyptic world where time literally collides. The author managed to weave futuristic elements into modern day with a cryptic sci-fi (almost?) bend and a smart writing style...

    Prelude to Mayhem (Mayhem Wave #1) by Edward Aubry is a fun and exciting and yet crazy tale of things going really bad in 2004. Mayhem would be a great word for it. Near mass extinction of people, magic appeared, dinosaurs, pixies, animals in many odd sizes and colors, dog sized bugs,...

    I really enjoy Edward Aubry's books. This is the third one I've read, and the main characters are generally always likeable (I hate books and movies that feel that a hero has to be a complete loser asshat, to be identifiable with), and they don't do obviously stupid things that no real...
