First off I found this book from from the main series it came from: Extinction Cycle by Nicholas Sansbury Smith. I am a huge fan and while I loved the end, it left me wanting even more it was just that good. So I read the kindle worlds books. Loved the different authors peeks into that apocalypse, then came Rule of Three.
This is a huge peek into what the every man went through. No soldiers and scientists, just regular people using their every day abilities fighting nightmares they have no idea about. Where did they come from, how do you fight them how do you fight to survive them? Can you?
The Rule of Three has Jack and Dee. They aren’t fighters, they aren’t soldiers or police. They are regular people using what they have trying to survive and reunite. Making choices I’d never want to face and experiencing things that would make most want to give up, but neither one ever does. You can feel how much they love each other and are routing for them to survive even as you doubt they have any chance of seeing each other ever again.
Taking place in a different part of the world from the original works so well for this book as well. There is so much familiar yet so much different that it just feels right. New Zealand is a beautiful place and hearing about it, even in this context made me personally very happy.
This is a well written adventure from someone who obviously understands, loves and respects the world it was written in. I didn’t find discrepancies that pulled me out of it or any writing that was disruptive to the flow of the book. It was a smooth, engaging, intense and scary ride that will leave you longing for book 2! Luckily you don’t have to wait!
Adrian Smith has taken the original, vivid series and expounded the experience into New Zealand. With beautiful writing, descriptive characters, and a suspenseful story line, this novella immerses the reader in the terrifying world of the apocalypse. Read in a single evening, I was very impressed with Mr. Smith's debut tale!
The story starts the reader on a frantic journey to reunite a husband and wife, separated when the world descended into chaos. A sprinkling of survival tips and ingenuity makes this a wonderful Kindle World addition to the original series.....and there's the promise of more! I honestly can't wait for more from this author and these characters. Very well done!
This first novella starts with Jack Gee, Mr. Normal Guy, on a camping hiking trip. As he heads home to his wife Dee, he finds that the world has fallen apart since he's been gone.
This first novella tells of his and Dee's extreme trials in trying to stay alive and hopefully find their way back to each other, meeting humans and Variants on their journeys.
I highly recommend this gem and of course the entire EXTINCTION CYCLE series.
I adore The Extinction Cycle by Nicholas Sansbury Smith and always wanted to read the novellas set in his world that other authors wrote, but the Kindle World books were taken down and I didn't get a chance. I was thrilled when the author said he was publishing them through his own press and they would be available world wide!! It was also a bonus that this author was expanding his books and adding more content.
When I started this, I wasn't sure what to expect to be honest, because this is a debut author. I thought it would take a while for him to find his flow, but colour me impressed because this was seriously good!! We are brought into the action right from the start and it doesn't let up. The action sequences are well written and were easy to become lost in.... I had a real hard time putting the book down!! The plot was fast paced and well developed, and his characters were really easy to connect to and like, so yes, I was seriously impressed with the authors writing skill!!
The authors ability to grab me and make me see the landscape with his descriptive writing was brilliant too. New Zealand is a bucket list item and I could picture the scenes perfectly. Also the geeky references were awesome ;) Loved it!! I also loved the fact that apart from Ben, none of the rest are military. This is told from the point of view of ordinary people, in a country where they don't have access to guns easily either. It was relatable and scary because where I live, we don't have access to weapons easily either, and it makes you think.
In all, I loved this book and can't wait to dive into the next one. Jack and Dee, Boss, George and Ben have all captured my heart.
