3.0 out of 5 stars Feels like its been written by someone very young 23 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read this book and the first in the series - The Eden Plague. I found it OK. The idea is OK. the science in the plot is OK. The plot moves along OK, the characters are ... OK, the writing style is OK. However, I find it hard to believe in any of it.

So its all OK, but none of it is really believable .... and I don't mean whether its plausible to believe in aliens or heroes or weird science ... I mean that how characters/organisations/government, react, interact, behave, etc is just not very realistic.
Feels like its been written by someone very young.

Having said that if the price of the follow on books dropped to £1 i'd probably buy them when I couldn't find anything better to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars An exciting tale but was it needed 11 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this free to read and review.
This reads like an extract from the excellent "Plague Wars" series however it was not included in the series. For anyone who has been reading the series up to now will have used their own imagination to fill in the missing bits. If you have not read the series it will probably tell you too much and spoil the enjoyment of the series if you choose to read it.
It is a well written book that keeps the reader engaged from the first to last page however the suspense is muted by the fact that you know that Jill Reaper will survive to the end of the book no matter what is thrown at her. I did however like the irony of American citizens trying to escape to Mexico.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling ride 2 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Reapers Run" follows Sergeant Jill "Reaper" Repeth following her contracting the Eden Plague virus - a so-called disease that affects humans at the molecular level and brings with it superhuman healing, improved senses, and insatiable food cravings... following her escape from a cruise ship full of other "sickos", a government ruse to round up anyone and everyone they see as a threat, Jill embarks on a quest to find her family - but winds up finding redemption and hope in the unlikeliest of places.

As the world begins to fall apart following the Eden Plague outbreak, Jill has no idea who to trust - and she must rely on her new-found allies to evade the very government she was sworn to protect, before she and everyone she loves winds up another casualty in a brand new kind of war... one that will change the face of humanity and life as we know it.

Reapers Run is designed to bridge the gap between book #1 and book #2 of his exciting Eden Plague series, but it also works remarkably well as a standalone novel. I read through the book in around 3 evenings and found myself not wanting to put my kindle down - the action is fast-paced and the emotional turmoil that the characters must overcome is very real indeed.

Can't recommend this highly enough - if you're a fan of action-packed books with a military twist, give this a go - highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars I do love a good dystopian novel 25 Feb. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do love a good dystopian novel. Got the first in this series as a free book. Bought this one to see how it continued, and read it in one sitting. It just got hold of me and I was in a lucky place with time on my hands, thoroughly enjoyable read. I could criticise a few points, but that would be a bit picky. I'm now on the next in the series, so I must be enjoying them.

4.0 out of 5 stars This was the starting point...and it gets better! 26 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It all starts with an idea that might not like completely original, as other authors in the past explored similar themes, but the the Plague Wars series evolves into something completely different, presenting you characters that will become like friends to end up into Space for an Epic Saga that could easily be made into great movies!
