The first book was very good, an intriguing premise with clever insight into how people might cope after an apocalyptic plague. However "Breakers" slightly let down by a rushed final 'reel'. With Melt Down, Edward Robertson is much more at home in the world he has created and does a smashing job of involving us with his characters.

The format is the same as in book one: two sets of characters depicted in alternating chapters, each chapter ending on a minor cliffhanger. It's a tried and trusted formula and it works, even more so in this book because the characters and situations are expertly drawn.

Robertson has great skill with descriptive text. For instance, he talks about one character 'patting the air' with his hands in order to shush people down to listen to him. Absolutely spot on and the book is full of little descriptive gems like that.

This series would make a superb series of films and, indeed, looks to have been written with that in mind. I would be surprised if the film rights haven't already been sold because whichever production company picks this up is going to have a prime piece of box office share, so long as they stick to the text.

"Melt Down" built up steadily and was a thrilling page-turner as the story built to its climax. That's all I ask from a book and it delivered in spades.

Well done, Mr Robertson!

Meltdown book 2 by Edward W Robertson.

This is a really good book and well worth a read.

In book 1 we were introduced to Walt, Mia and Raymond, This story runs alongside book 1 and characters will cross paths.

We are introduced to Ness and his brother Shawn who live in the hills of Idaho, Ness is a computer game buff and Shawn is a bully who has moved back home after losing his home, Ness is unhappy to be once again sharing a room with his bully of brother so he runs away. Ness arrives at his friends house and finds him dead in a blood soaked bed, Ness takes it on himself to search his friends house before contacting the authorities. Ness later finds himself locked in a hospital under quarantine and Shawn comes to the rescue.

We are also introduced to Tristan and her 13 year old brother Alden. Tristan is about to finish College and has no idea what to do with her life and may end up moving back in with her parents. Tristan's parent fall ill and she is given the responsibility to care and protect Alden from the plague and the Alien attacks.

Will she keep Alden safe?.

The dignified way to start this review would be to hold my hands up and admit I was wrong. In my review of the previous instalment, ‘Breakers’, I had all but sworn not to continue with the series; and yet here we are. I honestly only meant to read a few pages, to catch the flavour and then put it to the back of my mind, but ‘Meltdown’ had other ideas for me. From the get go I was hooked on this book, and I truly loved it from start to finish. Even I am surprised by the complete 180 my brain has done regarding this series, I really had low expectations of this book due to my dissatisfaction with the first one.

‘Meltdown’ is written in much the same style as its predecessor, before the flu epidemic has hit and decimated the world’s population – the key difference being that the reader is more informed on what is coming, especially in regard to the aliens. It is very much like a rewrite of the first book but with different characters, and if you aren’t expecting this then I can imagine this book would be a huge disappointment. And whilst it is easy to see why some people may feel resentful that this book has barely advanced any further forward (chronologically at least) from the first, for me the anticipation of knowing what was coming balanced this out. I felt the plot was cleverly interweaved with ‘Breakers’ and it was enjoyable piecing events together; another unexpected bonus. I also felt a comfortable familiarity with the style of writing, which made reading this almost effortless.

Another similarity is the structure of the book; we are given new characters but the author still teasingly switches us between two very different and fascinating dialogues.

The next book should combine the story as opposed to telling individual experiences.

This book is as good as the rest but now is the time to link them all.

Found this series by accident and have been hooked ever since. Not a really hard core Sci-Fi book but well written with believable characters and storylines. Now up to book 6 and really enjoying each book.

This book had a bit of everything, and i was hooked from the first chapter. The characters were both likeable and believable. Written in a very witty 'movie style' way, that made the story very easy to visualise. With parallel sequels, this is a very fun and interesting series, written by a very friendly and approachable author, I defintely enjoyed this book.
