Synopsis – Some of the greatest minds of our time have hypothesized that alien contact could possibly result in the inadvertent introduction of a virus that would spread like the Plague. What if they were right? What if the human race were to fall victim to a pandemic of extinction-level proportions? What if it wasn’t by accident?
Just as Shiloh Winter embraces the fact that his girlfriend is pregnant and prepares for his role as a parent, his life takes yet another sharp turn. A work related road trip, a vividly frightening dream, and a visit to the emergency room culminate in the end of life as the human race knows it. Shiloh is soon to find out that everything that was before, in a fraction of time, is gone.
My Thoughts – I downloaded this book as it was free for a day on the kindle. It tells the story of Shiloh, a young boy in America who becomes a young dad. His daughter is born with a disability and he takes to working away to provide for them. It is this point that he is abducted by aliens and everything starts to change.
I thought that the idea behind this book was really good, aliens spreading a plague throughout the world in order to take over the earth, however for me i didnt really enjoy the book. I didnt see the relivence in his daughters disability to the rest of the story. Maybe this will become apparent in further books in the series, the next is due to be released in the autumn of 2012. I also didnt like the part where he was abducted by aliens, i just thought that it dragged on a bit too long.
I felt that parts of this book were really really gorey and i didnt enjoy this part too much. To be honest, i dont really have too much to say on this book, it wasnt one that i enjoyed, but im sure that others will like it.
Rating – 2.5/5
