Book Description

As an agent of the Department of Advance Analysis, she's one of a handful of people who knows about the spread of a new virus--one she believes will wipe out mankind. With her bosses in denial, she flies to New York to get her ex-fiance Chip to safety.

But he's already been scooped up and quarantined--and so has his adopted daughter. Pursued by her own agency, Ellie will stop at nothing to break Chip out before the virus claims them all.


Outcome is a novella (27,000 words / 90 pages) set at the beginning of the post apocalyptic Breakers series. It can be read before or after either of the first two books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story well told 27 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This isn't the sort of book I generally read - it was the high standard of the writing that convinced me to take a chance on an unfamiliar genre.

Outcome is a great introduction to the post-apocalyptic series Breakers. It's a perfectly formed novella. The page turning race-against-time thriller story is matched by the quality of the prose (there are fresh metaphors and similes aplenty). The two protagonists are well realised and I enjoyed being in their company. I've already downloaded the first novel in the series (Breakers) and I'm looking forward to reading it. Highly recommended.

Totally enjoyed reading this :-) A twist at the end that was not expected. Refreshing change from stories you can work out the ending before you get there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outcome 20 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Im a massive fan of post-apocalyptics, especially those of the plague variety, and this series is definitely up there in my favourites. I was a little skeptical to begin with about halfway through Breakers, but it proved to be well worth sticking it out when i got out of my post-apocalyptic comfort zone. 5 stars, worth a read.

I've been glued to the series. It's an extremely compelling read, the characters are believable and I was drawn to the survival of each of them. I can't wait for more from the author.

It took me the whole of this book to realise the two female characters in it are the same ones we see later in "Reapers". It is a clever introduction and moves along at a brisk pace, with a fair bit of intrigue thrown in for good measure.

As with the rest of the Breakers series I can thoroughly recommend it.

Easily readable short end-of-the-world as we know it novel.

This novel was not what I would normally have chosen and I was wonderfully surprised at how much I really loved the story-line.

Edward W, Robertson writes a phenomenally realistic novel that leaves you with `what if' questions. His depiction of the time, place and characters was creative and more realistic than anything I have read for a while - Ellie is a believable female in a tough world and I found her familiar; Chip is your everyday male and not the typically written about tough exterior with a heart of mush, man. This novel is a great and enticing beginning to the `Breakers' group of novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 27 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short but fast moving and gripping story with interesting characters. Although I realise this was written as a prequal I decided to read it first before starting the main Breakers series which I am now anticipating will be very good. I hope the characters in this introduction pop up in one of the later books as I would like to know how they managed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up and down 23 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The end of the world is nigh as a virus is about to wipe out humanity, and our female lead, Ellie, decides to do the right thing and save a few people before she gets the hell out of harm's way.

Oddly, this includes her ex-fiance Chip (SPOILER ALERT) who she learns has been taken into quarantine. This is where most of the suspense comes in: Is Ellie too late to save Chip and his daughter?

But that's where the suspense ends, because instead of trying to escape this wildfire virus, Ellie (who knows just how dangerous the virus is because she works for the "Department of Advance Analysis" and so knows what's coming. This kept pulling me out of the story - there wasn't the urge to escape I'd expect in a 'Escape New York before doomsday' tale.

At 80 pages, this is firmly in Novella territory. It felt like an extended sample to me (there are 4 more in the series which are longer). It's piqued my curiosity, and I'll probably try the next one eventually but not so much that I feel I have to rush out and buy it.

A solid 4: Recommended for those who like shorter instalments within a greater series.
