This is a wonderful original novel set in the world of Resident Evil, full of the action, puzzles and monsters you would expect from a Resident Evil novel. The book follows Rebecca Chambers shortly after the event of the first game (and the first novel) as she accompanies a team of rogue STARS members to infiltrate a secret Umbrella complex in Maine.

The story has likeable characters, plot twists and even some new zombies not seen in the games. Unfortunately in her attempt to introduce something new to the novel) the new type of zombie (zombies with guns) and the later 'smart' zombie (zombies that could pass as regular humans), the writer loses a little due to its diversion from the standard characteristics of zombies and how the T-Virus works.

Despite this small problem with the new zombies (and a few continuity errors, which can't be helped as the author couldn't possible know what would happen in future games when writing the novel) this is a superb read, it has action, suspense, death and good character development. Overall a good read for fans of the games and even for those who have never played them.

It's like an extension of the game with greater detail. Hard to pad out a game storyline so they are quite short which is a shame. That said I have enjoyed ever page.

5.0 out of 5 stars the missing link? 16 Sep 2012
By Su TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the sequel to "Resident Evil - The Umbrella Conspiracy" and it is an original novel (using the same characters as in the games, but attempting to bridge the gap between Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2).

The surviving STARS members have been suspended following the Spencer Mansion incident. With many of their dead colleagues being accused of the grisly murders, and the public at large not knowing anything about the activities of Umbrella, the STARS are on their own in their search for truth and justice for themselves and their friends.

This book introduces several new characters; some which survived to the end of the book and others which meet a tragic end of their own. There are several of these new characters who "bite the big one" but I would have liked to have "lived on" and appeared in the future books, but the author had other plans. Their loss is effective because I had developed a liking for them - this empathy is a skill which many authors cannot achieve.

Though the surviving STARS appear, this book follows the youngest STARS member, Rebecca Chambers, and the new characters that S D Perry has created.

The Umbrella scientists have been working with the T-virus and appear to have managed to produce a better functioning form of zombie. The mysterious Trent sends Rebecca and new characters David Trapp (captain of the Maine STARS) and some of his trusted friends and colleagues to the Umbrella research facility at Caliban Cove. Unfortunately, wherever the T-virus is tragedy can't be far away.

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid book for resi fans 28 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first book in the series I picked up Caliban Cove. A good read with all the suspense and elements of a decent resident evil game. The only bits that let it down were the puzzles, usually a mainstay of the resi games were a tad rushed and not nearly as mad as the game puzzles, and a few anti climatic deaths near the end. Still a good read and offers an interesting perspective on what else could be done in the Resident Evil universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story (but not for everyone) 2 Mar 2014

Resident Evil: Caliban Cove (Book 2) / 9781781161869

I was a big fan of S.D. Perry's first book in this series (The Umbrella Conspiracy), and Caliban Cove continues to deliver the same level of enjoyment and superb writing. I'll note upfront that I haven't played the video games, so I don't know how well these books match the game-canon, but in terms of zombie novels set in the Umbrella mythos, this series delivers great action, wonderful characterization, and a lot of suspenseful thrills.

Caliban Cove picks up after the end of Umbrella Conspiracy: the STARS team members who came back alive from the mansion are on the losing end of a conspiracy theory to cover up the virus spill, and one of the few allies they have decides to launch a raid on another Umbrella facility in order to get the evidence they need to clear their good name. For the raid, he needs the help of Rebecca Chambers, along with a group of genuinely well-characterized folks whose survival is NOT assured since (as far as I know) none of them ever show up in the video games. So the tension is ratcheted up immensely when Anyone Can Die.

In terms of the good stuff: S.D. Perry is obviously a very skilled writer. Some franchise novelizations are very poorly written and/or poorly plotted (which, as a dedicated Aliens fan, I know all too well!), but Perry's novels are in my opinion just as good as anything else available at your local bookstore and aren't trying to coast crappy writing on the strength of the franchise label. So even if you're not a hardcore fan of the Resident Evil series, these books are genuinely good zombie/monster novels with a lot of isolation and suspense and creepy thrills to make the books genuinely engaging. The characters do occasionally engage in foolish behavior in order to facilitate the plot, but it's obvious that Perry does her best to handwave these events so that they're not *too* jarring.

As far as the bad goes: My biggest disappointment with this series is its total embrace of the idea that evil people are mentally ill and that mental illness equals a dangerous menace to society. I realize that the people in charge of this franchise probably think someone would have to be "crazy" to want to zombify the world, but (a) the movies have thoroughly demonstrated other just as plausible reasons (greed, cruelty, elitism, stupidity, malice, a desire to lord over the ashes of society, etc.) and (b) blaming all this on one "mad scientist" completely obscures the many just-as-dangerous "sane" people who gave him a laboratory and zero oversight in the first place. The book even opens with a quote about how evil really needs mental illness in order to properly thrive ("Through avarice, evil smiles; through insanity, it sings.") and it comes off as unnecessary and jarring. Whether you can swim through this to get at an otherwise good story will vary by reader, I think.

If you won't be bothered by the repeated hammering on mentally ill people (most of whom are far more likely to be hurt by non-mentally ill people than they are to harm anyone themselves), then there's a good zombie story in here. Note that these zombies aren't quite your "typical" zombies, as the ones in this book are able to carry and use guns and otherwise respond to stimuli (which I enjoyed for variety's sake but some purists may not).

I love the games, so why not buy the book and visualize what's going in the book. They should actually make a game of this book
5.0 out of 5 stars An easy read but a must for Resident Evil fans 3 Jan 2014
By Ben Lehbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
A really cool follow up on what happened to Rebecca Chambers after the events in the Arklay Mountains. For those who either played the games or read S.D. Perry's other novels. An easy read and gives enough detail to make it paint the scene in your head without being too slow.
