Not giving away anything, since it's covered in the description, the main protagonist is just a average guy trying to get by. He doesn't appear to be equipped for the end of the world situation he finds himself in. A constant theme in all of Adam's book is growth and self-knowledge - coming into one's skills and abilities. We see that in Reggie as he copes with rebellious colleagues, murderous mutants, and a harsh environment. I really liked Reggie! Also, as in his other books, the antagonists are believable and I was sympathetic to their situation. Like our human survivors, they, too, are trying to survive in a exceedingly harsh world.
When I started reading this book it caught my attention right away. It's different from what I normally read.
Reggie & his cohorts are in hibernation sleep from an experiment sanctioned by their company. Deep underground, they were to be awakened within a short time. They slept for 50 years before the computer awakens him due to loss of power from their reactor.
They think they are doing a simulation exercise until they learn the world as we know it is gone.
They are attacked from outside, but who or what is attacking them?
Really a nice enjoyable book. Enjoyed the characters ( some more than others) and the storyline is fantastic. Can't wait for the next ! 😉
Mainly, the characters. They were stupid. Really stupid. I mean, Forrest Gump Was Smarter Than These Characters Stupid. Like, B-horror flick where the hot blonde goes into the attic while everyone in the audience screams "idiot!" Stupid.
I don't know if this is the author's level of character development/writing or if he meant for this be this way. Regardless, I almost ditched the book halfway through, it was that bad.
Then he has to focus on waking his team, or as many as can be woken on the power remaining in the reserve batteries. How does he choose? How and when will he mourn the loss of those he didn't wake?
And what on earth is making that awful banging sound at the hatchway?
Reggie will find out only too soon!
And he really does. The system that controls the complex has woken his team, and now they must deal with whatever caused the banging. As well as the situation that the project controllers have left them in. And get all the mechanisms, that support life in the habitat, running again.
Reggie doesn't feel in control, though he really should be. His belief in himself is wavering. Can he get his team through and find out what is going on?
I enjoyed reading this. I had started the proof copy, but re-started once I had the final copy. It was so engaging I didn't mind reading the first third of the book twice. It is the sort of book that I am able to visualise well because of the quality of the writing; that always enhances the read for me. All in all a truly good story and I am looking forward to the next book coming out.
I received an e-ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
