And so I bought it, and here I am having now read it and still wanting more.
This is a great little story, showing a real insight into how Kellis-Amberlee started. I agree with the other reviewer that it could easily have been expanded to novel length. Perhaps in the future it will be - there are so many different ways that this period could be written about.
Personally, I'm heading here (San Diego 2014: The Last Stand of the California Browncoats) for more of the same.
If you enjoyed the "Feed" trilogy, then you MUST read this. It's excellent but I do feel that it could have been longer and been a proper prequel rather than a short "novella". It's left me wanting much more!
Personally I feel that Mira Grant has missed a real trick here to get a really atmospheric and haunting novel out there; for instance there's a couple of places where Mira just says "...and six were bitten in the struggle..." and similar lines where the first people Rise. What happened? How did the struggle come about, what did the non-Risers think was happening...etc etc. So much fear and horror and other emotions could have been included here to make it really leap out at you. She could have added so much more detail about various incidents and it would have made a huge difference to the whole thing. It was good but could have been even better!! And be prepared for a lump in your throat when you read the end. *sniffle*.
On the whole highly recommended - enjoy.
