C.A.S.E Revelations by Savannah Verte

Title: C.A.S.E. Revelations
Author: Savannah Verte
Genre: NA Dystopian
Published: March 7, 2017
Publisher: Eclectic Bard Books
Pages: 246


A simple mistake brings the world to its knees with no notice or time to prepare. Young and inexperienced, first term president Baron York will have a lot to answer for when it's finally done. If, that is, there's anyone left to answer to. 

Lessons from The Great Depression make an encore performance at the Hamilton property as they try to stay alive...and sane. Where were you when the world went dark and everything stopped?


I found a copy of this book while stumbling through the wreckage of the world after the zombie apocalypse ended. That's right, I was one of the survivors, and if you're reading this, you apparently were too. Thank goodness the smart people survived as well and were able to get electricity and the internet working again, or I don't know what I would do. 

Anyway, found a copy of this book and with all the zombies dead, I had time to actually read again, so I figured why not. Big mistake. The last type of book you should be reading at the tail end of an apocalypse is a book about an apocalypse. That shit will cause nightmares. Add to that the similarities between the president in this story and Trump before the zombie apocalypse started, and it's almost like reading a history book instead of fiction. 

But let's talk about that for a second. Because President York really does bear an eerie resemblance to Donald Trump in both looks and circumstances surrounding his presidency. And I love a good speculative fiction, but not when real life is as frightening as it is under our current "leader." At this point, I think I might be better served by sticking to sappy romances for the next 3 1/2 years, and this book just solidified that opinion for me. 

I will say that the action in the story was pretty well done and it was easy for me to put myself into the main characters shoes (but some of that is probably because of my recent real life experiences). So the book wasn't all bad, but I would definitely recommend you hold off on reading it for a few years until you've had time to work through whatever issues you may have come out of the zombie apocalypse possessing, because you surely have some. We all do. There's no shame in that. 

I give this book 2.5 nuclear bombs.

About the Author

A lifelong lover of words and reading, Savannah Verte hasn’t quite figured out what she wants to write when she grows up. Born and raised in the upper Midwest, Savannah’s gypsy spirit and never quit attitude keep her busy and seldom idle. For so many reasons, Savannah considers herself a ‘Contemporary Vagabond’ when it comes to writing and hopes that others find her diverse offerings as enjoyable to read as they are to write. 

Her first release in decades, Viva Zapata & the Magic 8-Ball began the journey August 1, 2015. Her short story, What they didn’t know, was featured in the January/February BTS magazine, and she co-authored a paranormal piece, Kingdoms Fall, which came out in early 2016. Her next two solo ventures, the first two books in The Custos series -Book of Time & Book of Change also released in 2016. After that, she’ll be working on her competition piece, Chasing Daylight for Cherry Adair’s Finish the Damn Book Challenge, she has an upcoming anthology work called Immortal Alchemy, and an untitled short story for a charity anthology that is a TBA release. There is a long list of titles to come after those are done too.

As the primary owner and driving force behind Eclectic Bard Books she considers herself immensely fortunate to see writing from varied perspectives as she endeavors to publish the authors rostered there. Working with other writers, Savannah gets to expand her horizons every day as someone brings a new idea to the table and the brainstorming begins. There is something addictive about the creative process for her and helping other authors embrace their dreams make hers a reality daily.

That’s the official Savannah, the unofficial version is just a girl who loves experiencing life with every twist and turn it takes. When she was born, she had such fine, light hair that her mother used to tape bows to her head so people would know she was a girl. She’s had a host of crazy unrelated jobs- everything from cake decorator, dry cleaner, and insurance agent to Emergency Room assistant, bartender, crime lab tech and bouncer. Savannah loves air hockey but completely sucks at it. She loves good jazz, good scotch, and antiques but also old rock, a quiet tea, and a tidy home. She’s completely technology impaired and can get it after she’s broken the computer or done it ass-backwards a few times… Thank Gods that there are some amazing meme creators that let her pilfer images or she’d be lost. Lime green is her color, the rhinoceros is her logo & philosophy, and she’s completely mad about seeing new authors try.
