Dating in the Apocalypse: Sarah “The One” is an adventure by Christopher John Chater. Tom Collins tries to live normally in the apocalypse ruined city. He wants to have a meaningful relationship, but finding a soulmate isn’t easy. Ruthless clans frequently abduct women for the sex slave trade, including someone he just met. His mother, Lilith, is known for making deadly dresses for women so Tom uses the opportunity to date a few. When Lady Sarah walks into Lilith’s shop, Tom manages to get a date with her, but it turns into a bloody massacre when marauders invade the restaurant. They escape, but the only way Tom can see Lady Sarah again is to agree to her risky terms that could cost him his life.

It was the attractive novella cover of Dating in the Apocalypse that first held my attention and curiosity before I read its synopsis. The story is cleverly written with moderate action from wonderful characters. It is also amusing, which is mainly due to Tom Collins’s witty narration. He is confident, fearless, and slightly arrogant in his romantic gestures to women. Lilith and Lady Sarah are also smart, courageous females who can defend themselves in the war-torn environment. This is book 1 from the series Dating in the Apocalypse by Christopher John Chater. It is an extremely short and pleasant novella that ended in suspense, but the story continues in Book 2. Readers will enjoy this.
