Enjoyable dystopian action-romp
on 11 November 2015
Overall I've given this boxset of four volumes a 4 star rating (I've also individually reviewed each volume) for being fast paced, engaging dystopian action, with a little bit of a twist on the normal zombie thriller. I enjoyed the fact that we actually know who the bad guys are and get a glimpse and why they're doing it, even if it does seem quite insane. I liked the characters and whilst the writing was fairly basic, and at points a little stilted, with too much reliance early on on end of paragraph cliffhangers, overall I found it an enjoyable read and an interesting story.
I very much appreciated the fact that this boxset includes a conclusion, whilst the additional side-stories are told out in the next books. I didn't feel held to ransom to purchase the next books just to find out the main storyline, as this style of volume-release often does, which means I will now go out and buy them all quite happily to enjoy the optional, additional stories.
The ending did feel a little rushed and I was surprised at how quickly it concluded but overall I enjoyed it. It's definitely flawed, but for a quick action romp it hit all the buttons for me, so a solid four star rating.
