Product Description

Review

Praise for JUGGERNAUT:

'JUGGERNAUT is hugely entertaining and as unstoppable as its namesake.'

(Financial Times)

'There's no denying the strength of Baker's prose. It's violent and blokey... but also intelligent. The first 100 pages, especially, are rich with harrowing detail about the last days of Saddam's regime... Juggernaut is a rewarding read.' (SFX magazine)

'A lock and load adventure of the highest calibre. A tense, absorbing journey and a high speed collision of military action and apocalyptic horror. Blackhawk Down meets Day of the Dead.' (Adam Nevill, author of Apartment 16, The Ritual)

Adam Baker's style is very reminiscent of a combination of Matthew Reilly and James Patterson, and like both those authors, he uses it to tell a punchy story that keeps you engrossed from start to finish. (Sci-fi Bulletin)

'Juggernaut is populated with believable characters, strong dialogue and impeccably researched detail. These characters live, love, fight and betray their way through to the book's explosive finale... If you like zombies and survival horror then this book is for you. If you like to see just what man is capable of doing when his back is against the wall then this book definitely is the one for you.' (Starburst)

This book is brutal. A group of survivors go to rescue the one man who can save the world from zombie Armageddon. Dr Ekks the man with the cure. There is only one problem, he was last spotted in a Subway Station below the streets of New York. Added to this the city has been nuked by a neutron bomb designed to kill the zombie but it has not worked. So our intrepid bunch of followers go in search of (Spock) the doctor.
What follows is an underground bunker story. Very much in the ilk of James Herbert's Domain. Antagonists on the outside just waiting to break in. Rising water levels and other dangers within.
It is a good slow burning book. I knocked a star off as Adam took a bit too long to get to the climax.

This novel is the follow-up to the superb 'Outpost' and the not-as-good-but-still-very-good 'Juggernaut'. 'Terminus' falls somewhere between the last two books - brilliant in places, inspired in others - but just falling short of Outpost's grim excellence. Not to say that this isn't anything but a cracking piece of apocalyptic fiction and a fresh spin on the 'dangerous mission to search for a cure' plot. There is some great descriptive prose, fleshing out the motley collection of characters and the ruined world in which they're trying to survive.
And be prepared, this is a bleak story. Unrelentingly grim for the most part, 'Terminus' stayed with me for days after I'd read it. The parasitic virus that has devastated the planet is steadily wiping out the human race, and there's not much that can be done to stop it.
Or is there?
We don't know. We may find out if there are further additions to the series. I hope there will be. The only real criticism I had of the book was that it didn't show as much of the infected or 'prowlers' as I would have liked. But that's probably just me!
Nevertheless, it's a great read. Action-packed and engrossing. This, along with Outpost and Juggernaut, would make a great film trilogy.

This is the third novel in this series, following on from Outpost and Juggernaut. The three books are set in different places and involve different people, but all dealing with various stages of the same dystopian scenario. In this book, the alien infection has covered much of the Earth, and in New York there is a concerted effort by a noted scientist to find a cure. When New York is bombed with nuclear weapons to try to stop the spread of the disease, a small squad of survivors must try to find the scientist and see whether his announcement of a cure is true. But can they get there before the prowlers get them?

This is a tightly woven novel which focuses on a small group of people in a world that has clearly been hit hard by the alien pathogen. This small group, operating in a small area of New York is on a focused mission, but there's plenty of action even in this narrowly defined group and area. The prowlers are everywhere and the rescuers each have their own motivations for what they are doing.

This is not a book for those of squeamish turn, nor for those offended by bad language. This series of books feature hard men and women who are fighting for survival and don't intend to let much get in their way. This book is no exception, and the narrative is short, staccato and breathless to fit the flow of the story.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all three of these books, and I hope there are more to come because there are certainly loads of unanswered questions and heaps of directions that the story could now take. There's a lot more to be learned about the infection itself, as you will see from reading these books, and I hope the author has some more books up his sleeve for us to enjoy. Definitely recommended, but start with Outpost first, then read Juggernaut before you read this one.

Format: Paperback
Adam Baker's alien parasite continues its' reign of terror in the brilliant `Terminus.'
In the first book of the series, Outpost, we first learn of the alien infection that falls to Earth from a Russian Space station. The caretaker crew of a dormant oil rig learn that this infection has decimated civilisation, and is headed their way. In a neat twist to the current hordes of undead revenants storming the bookshelves, this infection spreads metallic tendrils and spines through the flesh and nervous systems of its' hosts, eventually killing their soul and leaving a homicidal, frenzied, hungry walking husk. We also learn that there is a guiding alien intelligence, almost like a hive mind.
The next of the series, `Juggernaut,' is a prequel that details how a precursor to the infection that destroys our world lands in the desert, where it decimates a team of mercenaries on a sham mission controlled by CIA rogues, eager to develop a new bio-weapon.
These books are brilliant fast paced reads with a kinetic, staccato prose, deeply flawed protagonists, and examples of human evil that prove every bit as deadly as the alien infection itself. All of which can be found in the latest installment.
In `Terminus,' New York is nuked (along with other major cities) by Presidential order in an attempt to slow the infection. But a neuroscientist and his team may have found crucial information about the infection, and a transmission is received from them deep in the city's trashed underground system. A team comprising of military, fire and rescue, and a prisoner who was a potential lab rat of the Doctor's, and may have a clue to his whereabouts, are dispatched to the underground to rescue the Doctor and retrieve his research.
This is the grimmest, bleakest installment of this series yet.
