I found the book to be very well-written, the pacing seemed flawless. I was right there with Christian the whole time. I'm not ashamed to admit that this book made my heart stop and tears to form. I didn't expect it to evoke such emotion from me. I loved this new take on zombies. You can only read so many books about flesh eating deviants so many times before it becomes old (not that those books are bad either).
Considering how short this book was I was quite surprised at the roller coaster ride it took me on. I most certainly recommend you give this a shot.
John Podlaski, author
"Cherries - A Vietnam War Novel" and "When Can I Stop Running?"
Plot: In this prequel to Black Rust, we see the beginning of the crisis created by a new virus. We slowly watch the world beginning to fall apart in the first place and the first of many unconscionable decision by the government which leads to the horrible realities in Black Rust. Through the eyes of a young Christian Black, we see how his life's realities have created in him a certain ambivalence towards violence under the right circumstances and how he developed, mainly out of necessity, his cold heart. Whether or not you agree with the decisions he makes at different junctures in this novella, Adair's writing style leaves you no choice but to feel sympathy towards young Christian Black. This short novella shows he really wasn't always an unlikable person.
After reading this short story, I think that Black Rust simply needed a good 2-3 more months in the writing/thinking phase to work out some of the bumps. The story line in Black Rust was extremely rough. However, after reading the prequel, I can see some hope for this series after all.
