This story has conspiracy theory written all over it. Whenever I tried to describe the storyline of this book to anyone while I was still reading it, I would be (sometimes) rudely interrupted with, “That sounds like something that happened to a friend of mine, although it was not as drastic as that.” I would then have to listen to the conspiracy theory this person came up with to explain that ‘certain incident.’
Captain Daniel Ash is at the center of a government sanctioned experiment gone horribly wrong. All the residents of a small subdivision (Baker Flats) in Sage Springs, California are subjected to an airborne, lethal, man-made, virus. Of the sixteen families exposed to the killer virus known only as KV-27a, Daniel and his two children are the only survivors because of some unknown immunity they possess.
The morning before Daniel is to be exterminated and dissected like some guinea pig, he is miraculously saved from the abandoned military compound that his cell (#57) was located in.
When Daniel learns that his children (Brandon and Josie) have been moved and are still alive after his escape, he vows to find them with the help of his new friends who helped him escape certain death.
There are a few side stories in this tale that help explain the bigger picture of the ‘gone horribly wrong’ aspect of this dangerous military sanctioned experiment. These stories include innocent people and/or their family members who get caught up in being exposed to or otherwise affected by this deadly virus.
The group responsible for developing and testing the KV-27a virus has a sinister agenda that includes reducing the world’s human population from 7 billion to only 10 million individuals. This group fears that the exponentially growing human population will become too numerous for the earth’s shrinking resources to support.
In this first book of the Project Eden series, the characters continue to develop as the story grows. The pace of the novel is fast, the storyline is very believable, engrossing, and is quite capable of making the reader consider if this is a possible conspiracy in the making somewhere out there.
Science Fiction/Conspiracy Theory/Thriller/Mystery/Suspense, and Post-Apocalyptic genera lovers will enjoy this title.
Late at night on a desolate military base recently opened, Captain Daniel Ash is awakened by the cries of Josie, his daughter. He rushed to her room to find her burning with a high fever. Calling for his wife's help, Ash put Josie in a tub and filled it with cold water. Returning to his bedroom wondering why his wife Ellen had not answered him Ash finds she has died while asleep. Filled with horror Ash dialed 911 then remembered he has not checked on his younger son Brandon. Finding Brandon okay, Ash carried his son to the bathroom to be with Josie. They hear the front door being smashed, it is going to be okay, paramedics have arrived. When the footsteps reach the bathroom Ash is surprised to find men entering wearing biohazard suits.
The nightmare begins.
Put in isolation, Ash soon finds out all of his neighbors have died and told by his captors his children have died as well. Unfortunately the virus is spreading unwanted to other communities; it was let loose on Ash's neighborhood with the intent to keep it contained and find someone immune to it so a vaccine could be developed. All that is left is to dissect Ash and produce a vaccine, except Ash has other plans, he wants to find out what happened to his children, and then he wants revenge.
This conspiracy oriented novel will grip you from the first dozen pages as the reader is thrown right into the action.
Not a literary great novel, but rather a very entertaining read that is difficult to put down once you have read the first chapter. The characters are believable, the plot plausible, and the story flows at an even pace with the action timed to keep the story moving along.
I look forward to reading the sequel, "Exit 9" to see where Brett Battles takes the story line. This was a fast and entertaining read that can be finished in just a couple of days. The pace of action draws the reader in to keep reading. I recommend it for light reading, especially those who like apocalyptic themes. I give it 4 stars.
