Some of the reviewers wished for this to be turned into a novel. Not me. It was a very intense short story. Very emotional for me - from longing for a bowl of chowder to annoyance, horror, frustration, and, finally, glee. It's perfect just the way it is.
I don't know how to review this one without spoilers, and I'd hate to ruin it for someone who hasn't read it yet. I'm just going to say that this is another winner from Mr. Graham. My cynicism says 'improbable' but my heart says 'nothing is impossible'.
I won't recap the story, as it's been done in other reviews. I will say that Seffy annoyed me, and endeared herself to me. The rest of the cast isn't fleshed out enough for me to form much of an attachment to them.( I hope we get to know them better in the sequels.) The story kept me interested and really wanting to know what happened. I STILL want to know what happened. What the heck happened??? Why have they reinvented themselves and tried so hard to forget their origins? How did this 'blast' come about? Who, what, why, where????? And what's up with the zombies? Are they everywhere or just in the immediate vicinity of our heroes???
I will positively read the next installment in this series.
This is a BIG book. I didn't realize how big when I started it. I quickly became resentful of interruptions. Doomsday, end of world stuff. The paranormal element is what hooked me, but the intrigue and action kept me riveted. As soon as I'm finished posting this, II'm going to look for more books by Melissa Conway!
A little danger, a little romance, and lots of mystery. I enjoyed the heck out of this book. I didn't figure out the 'who dunnit' until the author was ready. I love when that happens! The peek inside the newsroom was really fun, too. The characters were really well done and completely believable. I will absolutely be looking for more of Stacy Juba's work.
Loved this!!! Darcy is a delight. The two prequels have more than roped me in--I can't wait for the novel to come out! I don't want to add any spoilers, but I sure hope there's a good dental plan in Brogan's future ;-))
Truly, truly looking forward to 'A Head For Assassination' by Gayle Ramage--and anything else she writes.
