A review of "Exit 9 (A Project Eden Thriller)" — 1 year ago
Project Eden, the organization behind the Sage Flu in “Sick,” plans to launch the Sage Flu virus around the world. They’ve vaccinated the chosen and the rest will die. Will Ash and the resistance group that saved him in the first book be able to stop them in time?
I usually dislike epidemic novels and that featuring this sort of storyline intensely but Battles brings a new flavor to the genre that is exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat. What Battles gives us a taste of in “Sick,” he follows through with in “Exit 9” in spectacular fashion. This is a book with a lot of twists and turns and few of which are expected.
Something that friends and I have been talking about for a while is that a lot of authors seem not to favor strong women. Battles is a master of painting strong women. You’re not going to find a weeping willow in this book or a comically slapstick female. Battles woman are serious and they’re ready to do what they need to do. Chloe and Olivia are prime examples of this. You have a character who made a serious move in the last book ready to fight again and an intriguing almost baddie. I don’t know, read the book and tell me if you think Olivia is a baddie. I’m so looking forward to the next novel and reading more about her.
This book contains a large cast of well fleshed out and compelling characters and follows through on all of them…until the end. The end is great and I won’t spoil it for anyone but it’s a massive cliffhanger.
This book is a great read. I’d recommend it at any price but at e-book pricing, how can you lose?
