A thrilling ride
on 2 July 2013
"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.
