The Island - Part 3

Rated 5.00/5 based on 12 reviews
Day by day The Fever grew stronger, surging across boundaries in its relentless assault on humanity. The news pouring out across the airwaves turned more shocking by the hour. Hospitals had started closing their doors. The dead and dying littered the landscape.

The tiny group stranded on Portsmouth Island listened as the horror unfolded. They had no where to run, and no where to hide. More

About Michael R Stark

Trying to figure out when I started writing is like trying to decide when I started walking. The stories have always been there, rummaging around in my mind. Some went on paper. Most didn’t. I wrote my first novel when I was 22. Thankfully, I left it to the dustbin of history where it shall always remain.

Imagine the grin, yes, it was that bad.

As for influences on my latest story, The Island, that one has been up there banging away in my head for a long time. Parts of it were told at bedtime. Though honestly, those who heard the parts wouldn't recognize them in the story. By the time we get to the second book in this series, they will find some recognizable moments. They'll also probably be upset that the adventure turned into something of a horror story.

Ahh, well, most of them are old enough now to read it for what it is.

I grew up in North Carolina, which is why part of the story is set there. I’ve been to exotic parts of the world, many countries, and most states. None of them I know as well as the one I called home for most of my life. It makes it easy to write about it, and the people in it.

I hope you enjoy the stories.

Enjoyed Book 3 a lot. Gabriel was an awesome character. Loved the willingness of the characters to make sacrifices, big and small, and the recognition that not everyone is willing to sacrifice. You gave us good vs. evil and the power of religious relics ... what more could an apocalyptic tale contain.

I've read all five of the parts of The Island. Mr. Stark has a keen mind, and a talent for story telling. I can't wait for the next in this series.

could not put the book (s) down after the first chapter. left wanting more at the end of part 3. Well worth the effort, actually pleasure, to read. Will be buying 4&5 shortly. If I bought them now I would probably miss work tomorrow so I better wait till the weekend. Kudos, thanks and well done. Look forward to reading more of your work

I love it when I start a series, and each new release is even better than the one that came before it. Michael Stark's "The Island" is just such a series. Part 3 kept me engaged through every page and left me eagerly awaiting the next installment. Fantastic world building, and a great take on the post-apocalyptic genre.
