I didn't hold much hope out for this book there was just something about it's blurb that didn't get me excited, it sounded a bit dull. I was wrong. It was just amazing. It was a well written, exciting, fast paced action thriller that ended up being a page turner that I could not put down.
It's hard to imagine what the world would be like with 98% of the world's population perished, no law and order and every man for himself. Jon Grahame did a superb job with creating the scene and tension of total anarchy.
I loved the characters, they all had their own unique personalities - whether good or bad. Reaper was a fantastic protagonist. He was brave, daring and always in the heart of the action. He didn't think he was worth much but he was looked upon with respect and admiration by his fellow community. I wanted him to find the happiness he deserved. I also loved his right-hand man, Sandra. Her fierce loyalty and devotion was awe-inspiring.
Some parts of the book are moving and even brought a small tear to my eye. There were parts where you were left guessing but after that it was obvious. You knew there was going to be some fast paced action, some blood shed and ultimately death for some. The action scenes were written extremely well, almost to the point where you could have been peering out of a window watching it all before your eyes.
Reaper is rapidly developed as a character capable of both violence and sensitivity responding to his own needs and to those around him, the violence is tough justice that sometimes goes wrong - these issues are not brushed away, so not just a brilliant read but also a thought provoking one.
I can't wait for the next volume, but why bill this as a trilogy? Reaper ought to be Yorkshire's answer to Lee Child's Reacher but better!
