Customer Review

on 14 August 2013
There are a lot of similarities with Patrick Lee's The Breach Trilogy. Scientists create a portal into another universe and it all goes badly wrong. In Lee's books the portal delivers strange artifacts with various powers, in Lebbon's breach it brings, well....Zombies. There is also a lot of similarities with Terry Pratchett's new series "The Long Earth" which deals with the discovery of multiple Earths.

The novel mainly relates the stories of various scientists from the Coldbrook "Institute" and how they deal with the Zombie outbreak, but they intertwine well with other characters, and this is all well written and gripping. There are some brilliant and exciting set pieces all in the great zombie and Sci Fi tradition.

There are some criticisms though, the actual purpose of Coldbrook, to find other multiple universes is in itself fine science fiction, I just found the link between that premise and a Zombie outbreak to be a bit convoluted. I have to admit that I found it difficult to work out who actually created the zombies, in what alternative universe and why? The ending was also quite confusing, that some apocalyptic church (Catholic??) created zombies to eradicate humans from al multiple earths....am I right, I'm not sure?

Anyhow, it won't stop me reading Lebbon's other books now I've read this one.
