    I kept seeing this book on the recommended part of the Kindle App and decided to give it a go I was going to have a hiatus from reading apocalyptic type novels for a while, but the premise sucked me in Okay, I liked the cover as well.Alex Meyer, a paratrooper, stationed at FT Irwin, goes to sleep in his barracks and awakens in a place he is unfamiliar with At first, he thinks he may be in a prison or holding cell, but that can t be right, as the room he is in doesn t look anything like a ce I kept seeing this book on the recommended part of the Kindle App and decided to give it a go I was going to have a hiatus from reading apocalyptic type novels for a while, but the premise sucked me in Okay, I liked the cover as well.Alex Meyer, a paratrooper, stationed at FT Irwin, goes to sleep in his barracks and awakens in a place he is unfamiliar with At first, he thinks he may be in a prison or holding cell, but that can t be right, as the room he is in doesn t look anything like a cell It s kinda futuristic looking and has a bathroom so he probably isn t being detained After having a quick peruse around the place he finds a case underneath his bed, that is DNA coded to him and only him Although, he doesn t know that at the time Inside the case is an assortment of weapons and ammo cases, etcetera He eventually works out how to get outside and is amazed to see other people and cabins around, just like his A young woman Yael approaches him and gives him grief, as she believes he may be the reason for her being there as he s wearing army gear and carrying a weapon This is where he meets Max a Law Professor and he gives Alex all the information he currently knows about their situation, which isn t much except they all went to sleep in their own beds and ended up in this place Wherever this place is Max tells him about a barrier surrounding the complex, that prevents anyone from leaving or going past a certain distance in any direction They re all trapped Alex decides to take a stroll to see what the barrier is like and he starts to get nauseous after a little while, and thehe continues on his current path the worse he feels, to the point he s going to throw up So he goes back in the direction he came from and starts to feel better When he tries to go back to where he was originally going, he feels sick again Alex has found the barrier The further he goes into the barrier field the deadlier it becomes and he doesn t know the distance it covers before it becomes safe At least, not yet.After meetingpeople and looking around the place, Max tells Alex about the warehouse where there are food supplies and other items they need to survive in their new environment Max can open most doors in the warehouse except the room that only Alex can open the armoury, which has an inner door and this room has every type of weaponry you can imagine.Anyway, it s not long before they find a way to pass through the barrier and what they find adds to the mystery.I really enjoyed this novel It was full of suspence, mystery, conspiracy, power struggles, conflict, insurrection, and other surprises When Alex and the other people discovered what had happened to the outside world, theintriguing it became The only thing that stopped it from being a five star rating was Alex and his overactive hormones, which kicked in every couple of minutes slight exaggeration It was reaching the point where I wished he would go back to his cabin, spend some quality time with himself and get it out of his system I was starting to wonder if some funny wit slipped him an aphrodisiac or something Maybe I m being a bit harsh, as he s in his mid twenties, but I didn t care for his lascivious thoughts Every woman he looked at created a stirring in his pants I m surprised he didn t get a brick or a mallet to bash himself over the head with like a cartoon character when they see a beautiful woman.Still, it s an intriguing story, that has a different take on when an apocalyptic event occurs

    The synopsis made me think this was going to be the adult version of The Maze Runner but the only real similarity was people waking up not knowing how they got there The plot was a bit far fetched, which I can overlook easily, but combine that with the insta love situation plus a lot of military,weapons and fighting and I can t rate it higher than a 3 star The lack of relatable, likable characters didn t help either The concept of what happened to the planet was interesting even if it was far The synopsis made me think this was going to be the adult version of The Maze Runner but the only real similarity was people waking up not knowing how they got there The plot was a bit far fetched, which I can overlook easily, but combine that with the insta love situation plus a lot of military,weapons and fighting and I can t rate it higher than a 3 star The lack of relatable, likable characters didn t help either The concept of what happened to the planet was interesting even if it was far fetched It was certainly original no aliens or zombies wiping out the population I wouldn t recommend this for everyone but it was a good read and I think most people who are drawn in by the synopsis will enjoy the story also

    I picked this book up on impulse Someone in my Goodreads timeline marked it to read I like post apocalyptic and or dystopian reads sorry, Amber and the plotline sounded interesting.A diverse group of people find themselves in a strange camp with guns, strange technology, and no connection to one another although we do find out later there was It that was all it was, I would probably not have enjoyed it as much But there was good dialogue and situations, interesting characters, good I picked this book up on impulse Someone in my Goodreads timeline marked it to read I like post apocalyptic and or dystopian reads sorry, Amber and the plotline sounded interesting.A diverse group of people find themselves in a strange camp with guns, strange technology, and no connection to one another although we do find out later there was It that was all it was, I would probably not have enjoyed it as much But there was good dialogue and situations, interesting characters, good intrigue and villains, and a great ending I even wanted the story to go on Kudos to the author

    The idea is interestung although far fetched and cliche, but the execution is very poor It s written as a middle grade kind of YA romancethan anything All in all I was disappointed in this one.

    This is the book that made me join Goodreads It is one of those rare books that just grabs you and takes you somewhere else, and when you re done reading you feel sad that you have to come back to the real world I don t want to spoil anything, so I won t tell you what it s about, but you re probably not going to expect it I can guarantee that if you like this type of book I d call it an action adventure thriller with sci fi elements , then you ll love this one I was quite surprised to find This is the book that made me join Goodreads It is one of those rare books that just grabs you and takes you somewhere else, and when you re done reading you feel sad that you have to come back to the real world I don t want to spoil anything, so I won t tell you what it s about, but you re probably not going to expect it I can guarantee that if you like this type of book I d call it an action adventure thriller with sci fi elements , then you ll love this one I was quite surprised to find out that this is a self published book The editing is professional, as is the cover I had no idea until I noticed the lack of publisher logo and looked at the author s website Guess the publishing industry dropped the ball on this one

    Stunted writing, overly descriptive of non essential tangential information is distracting I read to chapter 8 hoping it would get going with the story and less description without plot movement can t keep going Not worth it I can describe the characters clothing and clothing optionsthan them as people and their motives interests.

    This was a poorly written novel, a huge disappointment The premise was intriguing but was poorly executed.

    A different and interesting take on the something bad happens genre Different and intriguing with interesting and varied characters Lots of oh shit moments and crazy stuff happening Kept my attention pretty much start to finish, was really good.Only negative I d have to say about it is that it had insta love, which I hate, but in the way they were thrown together and how it happened, it wasn t out of place and didn t ruin the book.Really enjoyable, really good.
