This book certainly is packed with action and adventure which captures and holds your interest. The science is well thought out and so makes the story a lot more plausible, and thus interesting. Don't think (and hope) a nuclear war couldn't start that way - not unless everyone was about to push the button anyway. As for the firepower used in a confined space - surprised anyone has any hearing left. Big as these critters are, I'm also surprised they take so much killing with the available weapons. Disappointed the explosives and claymores were not used - especially on a defensive perimeter. I think some of the logistics could be a little out of whack with the time frame - again being a little picky but wasn't going to let it stop me from enjoying the flow. There is enough detail to allow the story to flow and keep you on the edge, without bogging you down with too much detail. The characters are great, and with that setup, entirely believable. If Mark can produce book one under pressure, what will the sequel be like? Please don't keep us waiting too long - and it would be nice if Jo, Mike, and the rest of the gang got reunited, and it progressed from there.
Thank you Mark.
