5.0 out of 5 stars New York, New York..., 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Terminus (Paperback)
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.
