‘Two decades of social media had prepared them well for UK2.’
The pace steps up in this final instalment of the Project Renova trilogy, as the survivors’ way of life comes under threat.
Two years after the viral outbreak, representatives from UK Central arrive at Lindisfarne to tell the islanders about the shiny new city being created down south. UK2 governor Verlander’s plan is simple: all independent communities are to be dissolved, their inhabitants to reside in approved colonies. Alas, those who relocate soon suspect that the promises of a bright tomorrow are nothing but smoke and mirrors, as great opportunities turn into broken dreams, and dangerous journeys provide the only hope of freedom.
Meanwhile, far away in the southern hemisphere, a new terror is gathering momentum…
I can’t stress enough how excellent this whole series is. Hooked from the very first page, I’ve devoured each subsequent book and couldn’t wait for the next one. Surprisingly enough, I don’t usually like dystopian fiction, with one exception – The Stand by Stephen King. This series is as good as that.
I’m a huge fan of Terry Tyler and looked forward to reading this series.
I’m really hoping that this isn’t really THE END of the series.
The characters are uniquely drawn – I quickly invested in some of them and hoped they would survive the horror that had become their life.
They’re not perfect. All have flaws, of course they do. Human flaws, weaknesses and frailties but the author, with her excellent skill of creating believable characters has really triumphed with this series.
Terry Tyler has the ability to get into the minds of some of the dubious characters she creates in the novels. Knows exactly what they would have thought and how they would have acted under the circumstances.
It’s a very addictive series. Each book is impossible to put down, which is a good job because I read this one during a very stressful time of moving house, with medical drama included. My mind however was most thoroughly occupied and absorbed which probably saved what’s left of my sanity.
The frighteningly horrifying aspect is though, that the scenario, that is of course fictional in this series, has a disturbing resonance with today’s world and is entirely believable. The monitoring of people via social media. The selection of who is worthy to a future society and who isn’t. Scary? Remind you of anything? You’d better believe it!
The thought that this could really happen if the wrong people are in power is frankly terrifying.
Are you being monitored by our governing powers? Is anyone following your tracks on social media and making judgement calls about your future and of course, the future of mankind.
All the stars plus plus. Don’t take my word for it. Buy it now and start building your bunker.
