Product Description


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)

Salvation is hidden somewhere beneath the devastated streets of New York City...

5.0 out of 5 stars New York, New York... 12 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars New York has gone off the rails in Terminus 16 Jun 2013
In 2011, I happened to stumble across Outpost, the debut novel from Adam Baker and was so thoroughly impressed, I got my hands on the follow up title Juggernaut as soon as I possibly could. Now in 2013, Baker revisits the Outpost universe he has created with Terminus.

So, considering the synopsis provided, Baker has taken proceedings from the lonely oil rig set in the bleak Arctic landscape seen in Outpost; left behind the imposing ancient fortress lost in the deserts of Iraq in Juggernaut and drops his current cast of characters into a long forgotten subway station under the city of New York which has been over-run with the infected and subsequently found itself to be the target of a tactical nuclear strike. If nothing else, Baker can't be accused of lacking in imagination!

In common with the previous entries in the Outpost series, Terminus features some strong female leads and the set-up for Terminus, to my mind at least, is unique within the genre. However, at times the plot was reminiscent of elements from Aliens, Escape from New York, Assault on Precinct 13, Mimic and Virus; all of which I had absolutely no problem with. Additionally, Baker peppers his story with knowing yet unobtrusive film references, which amused me no end.

Baker's descriptive prose is exemplary. He leaves little to the reader's imagination, conjuring up a nightmarish vision of New York populated by walking cadavers and throws a ragtag rescue team of firefighters, military scientists and convicts into the 200 miles of subway tunnels beneath the city and has them contend with the threat of collapsing buildings, flooded passageways and radiation sickness before even thinking about the dangers posed by the infected.

4.0 out of 5 stars A steel and Conrete tomb. 3 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Claustrophobic, nerve wracking brilliant horror! 25 Aug 2013
By Martin Belcher VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third book by brilliant British author Adam Baker. It is a kind of sequel to his first book "Outpost" but it is not necessary to have read that one to enjoy Terminus as it is a standalone story. The world has been ravaged by a lethal virus that rapidly infects the living and turns them into violent, blood thirsty entities. The once great city of New York has been destroyed by a nuclear warhead along with a long list of other US cities, all sanctioned by the President and NORAD in a desperate attempt to kill off the hordes of infected. Genius Doctor Ekks and his team of scientists had been near to finding a vaccine when they had to rapidly seek shelter in the New York subway tunnels to avoid being killed instantly by the nuclear strike. Hope is that Ekks has survived along with his priceless scientific breakthroughs.

A crack team made up of scientists, medics, army, ex NY Fire dept officers and a couple of prisoners are helicoptered into lower Manhattan to battle their way into the subway system to establish contact with Ekks and his team and evacuate them. What they encounter is a hellish nightmare of dark tunnels flooded with radiated water, rats, garbage and a lot, lot worse....

Terminus is a brilliant five star claustrophobic horror novel, tense, nerve wracking and filled with spine tingling moments. I loved every minute of it and the ending really begs for a sequel! Highly recommended and please try Adam Baker's other two books, Outpost and Juggernaut. Incredible horror.
