Where to start, i'm not one for reviews but i thought with so much good fiction out there people should be warned away from tripe like this.

Seriously, from the several lazy references to "the bullet hit the wall inches from my head" to EVEN MORE references of "i heard a sound like ... but it may have been my rib cracking", not to mention the hero being shot in the leg and stabbed in the ribs on one page never to be mentioned again and how a doctor with minimal weapons training manages to win every battle despite being hopelessly out numbered and out gunned, you want to punch yourself in the face just to feel something real. Sloppy repetition and glaring continuity errors aside, the story had me wishing death to all.

This book really is poor, i'm no English major as my poorly constructed review will testify but this writer should concentrate on writing for Emmerdale and leave the novels to people who care.

This is one of those books that the moment you finish it you sit there, basking in the afterglow of it's glory, just thinking to yourself "My life has been changed forever".

It may sound corny, but it's true.

While it started off rocky (mainly due to my disappoint in the change of main character from the first book) I soon fell in love with the new cast, lost myself in the plot, and found myself dazzled and amazed at every new twist and turn.
While the culled had a much more visceral and savage approach, this one tried to have some civility for the most part. Not for better or worse, just different. I find myself loving both novels for what they are, and really appreciating the dynamic specifically between the couple that stars them.

As for the other novels in the Afterblight Chronicles... well, let's just say they are less than stellar in my opinion. Quite sad to see them getting more and more sequels while the first 2 books sit dormant.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
An unusual, fresh look at an increasingly-tired genre. Like with Anno Mortis, Levene fearlessly experiments with the post-apocalyptic mythos to bring something new to the table.

In the case of Kill or Cure, the lead character, Jasmine, steals the show. She's completely bonkers, which makes for infectious (pun intended) reading. Her madness, however, strangely prepares her a world of incredibly difficult moral decisions. The post-Culled world is a terrible, terrible place, and it seems that only the badly damaged can survive it.

The book is shockingly dark (even for this genre), but still chips in enough blackly comedic moments to keep the reader involved. Possibly the ultimate in dark fun, Kill or Cure is a pleasant surprise - a new look at an old genre.
