Good to start...,
This review is from: Breakers (Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
The novel started very well. The gist is that a plague has wiped out most of humanity, and the book follows those who are immune from the outbreak onwards.
There is a varied cast of individuals, all characterised very well, and the way they cope with the end of civilisation varies from person to person.
It starts out like an intelligent take on something similar to Survivors, and I read avidly their tales... And then the aliens turned up.
It's not a surprise to anyone who read the blurb that aliens are in it, and yet they ruined, for me, an excellent book.
It went from something exploring character development and plot and specific well thought out pacing, to a bog standard action adventure story. The first half of the book could have been nearly anything without affecting the second half remotely. And it spoiled the reading experience for me.
