Let me explain. This is an apocalypse/time travel novel with a deadly virus that wiped practically the entire planet, so until we get far into the story, we don't know who is going to live or die, which, for the genre, is a good thing. It keeps you on your toes. At some point, I almost wondered if there would even be any survivors…
I admit I was not a fan of the 'big battle'. It's something that might work well in movies but felt rather strange in words; however, if you love time travel stories (as I do), you will find all the little twists that usually come with this type of story quite interesting and intriguing.
As some people already mentioned, this ends without us knowing the truth, but that's why it's the first in a series.
Character-wise, I think they could have been a bit stronger and their back-stories built up some. That said, I was happy with what was there for most of them. Even the main character has his own flaws; there are no real "super-characters" (best, brightest, most intuitive, uber-genius, etc), although there are a couple that are close, mostly on the "evil team", so to speak. There is at least one that we are not sure about at the end of the book, since he seemed to be for both sides depending on when things were happening.
Some people seemed to object to the many concepts brought into the book (time travel, alternate reality, aliens, etc). I thought they were handle fairly well; though it is one huge unanswered question at the end of the book. It is definitely part of a series, though the main story ties up well enough to leave the reader satisfied.
Either the author has repaired many of the grammatical mistkes, or some reviewers are very sensitive to them. There still enough to be mildly annoying, as it seems most of the free Amazon books have, but I did not find them to be particularly detrimental to enjoying the story. Overall, this is a very good read. I still have yet to check out the short stories (inter-book) that are freely available, but I plan to. This is a series that makes me want to keep reading; there are not a lot that do that to me.
I would give the book 5 stars if it came anywhere near to solving the issues presented; but, alas, we have to buy the sequel. Now, I will say that I like sequels, but not when I'm forced to read it. I think that's a cheap trick of the author and publisher to get me to spend more money. "Extermination Day" is a quick read and keeps you interested from the beginning to the end. I would recommend this, but only if you don't mind waiting for the sequel to find out what's going on.
Didn't realize that there are 2 free short stories that are ideally read between this book & the second (NanoSwarm) until after I purchased book 2. I would have missed them completely except I'm one of those readers who enjoys a good front cover. Between the front cover & beginning of NanoSwarm is the link over to the authors website where you can procure the short stories. They aren't necessary to the Trilogy (I think) but they do help fill in characters background (& in this case, with the time-travel element, would you say futureground?).
In all, I enjoyed this book & am looking forward to seeing the 3rd book published.
