AUTHOR: Justin Cronin
First came a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility that unleashed the product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gave way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.
As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.
This is not the kind of book i usually read, but i like to try out new genres so i started with this one. The book is set in a make believe place but the characters are very well developed and it keeps you interested and you do not see the twists and turns that sneak up on you through out the book.
The story line is alright, but i believe it could have been better, i particularly did not enjoy the ending, i felt it left many questions unanswered needless to say though, i did enjoy the book. I would say try it out and expect great surprises. 🙂
