Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This the second book in the `Extinction Point series', and unless I greatly mistaken there will probably be another to follow, as the story and the events that have transpired so far seem , to me to be unresolved. Other reviewers on this site have given over the plot line to varying degrees. All I will say is that what you have here is death of humanity by rain to be more precise `Red Rain'. What the author creates is a post-apocalyptic world for a bike-riding journalist to explore, this is covered in book one. The second phase of the story sees the dead reanimated and the flora and fauna of Earth are being transformed into an alien landscape - Emily our protagonist has a road trip from hell as she battles her way to Alaska to join up with other human survivors. Emily will need all her guile to survive.
The key elements that I liked;
1. The atmospheric nature of the book and the building blocks used to create Emily's world is done well.
2. The action is nicely paced; the story is tense and quite well-written.
For me this book was a real page turner, and I believe it is well worth a good 4 stars.
