Outcome is a great introduction to the post-apocalyptic series Breakers. It's a perfectly formed novella. The page turning race-against-time thriller story is matched by the quality of the prose (there are fresh metaphors and similes aplenty). The two protagonists are well realised and I enjoyed being in their company. I've already downloaded the first novel in the series (Breakers) and I'm looking forward to reading it. Highly recommended.
Oddly, this includes her ex-fiance Chip (SPOILER ALERT) who she learns has been taken into quarantine. This is where most of the suspense comes in: Is Ellie too late to save Chip and his daughter?
But that's where the suspense ends, because instead of trying to escape this wildfire virus, Ellie (who knows just how dangerous the virus is because she works for the "Department of Advance Analysis" and so knows what's coming. This kept pulling me out of the story - there wasn't the urge to escape I'd expect in a 'Escape New York before doomsday' tale.
At 80 pages, this is firmly in Novella territory. It felt like an extended sample to me (there are 4 more in the series which are longer). It's piqued my curiosity, and I'll probably try the next one eventually but not so much that I feel I have to rush out and buy it.
A solid 4: Recommended for those who like shorter instalments within a greater series.
This novel was not what I would normally have chosen and I was wonderfully surprised at how much I really loved the story-line.
Edward W, Robertson writes a phenomenally realistic novel that leaves you with `what if' questions. His depiction of the time, place and characters was creative and more realistic than anything I have read for a while - Ellie is a believable female in a tough world and I found her familiar; Chip is your everyday male and not the typically written about tough exterior with a heart of mush, man. This novel is a great and enticing beginning to the `Breakers' group of novels.
This short story was written as a preliminary to the 'Breakers' series, and maybe such themes are explored there. I'm willing to give it a further try and have downloaded Breakers.
As with the rest of the Breakers series I can thoroughly recommend it.
