The original stories in this series to me are always more interesting because in the ones based on the games, you know exactly whats going to happen next, whereas in the originals you can take a pretty good guess, your not actually sure.
My main critism of this book is, however, when you think of Resident evil, the next thing you think of is zombies. In this book, there are none.
The zombies replacement are a few creatures that Perry has created and the hunters. The first one is a pterodactyl like bird, then comes the scorpians (which feature in RE:0) and then some goat-snake type thing. Perry seems to like dinosaurs as the main monster is a T-rex/tyrant type thing.
The good-guy characters that Perry created in Caliban Cove are beleivable and fit in well with the other characters such as leon and claire. Perry's bad guys, Griffin in Caliban Cove and Reston in this one, are not all that great though. They seemed typical cliche types, power hungry, insane etc and that was the main bad thing about the book.
Overall I think this book deserves 4 stars because it was enjoyable (although far too short).
