Outpost (Outpost #1)

Outpostby Adam Baker

An intriguing story told in a unique way. Adam Barker’s style is unusual and does remind me a little of a movie script wit it’s short sentence and limited descriptive narration, but this does not distract in an way from the story itself.

As the human race faces extinction from an incurable plague of unknown origin, the crew of an Arctic installation find themselves very much alone and fighting for survival against infection, the arctic winter, each other and a ship load of zombies!

I found the book easy to read but difficult to put down. Adam keeps the pace throughout, with each twist in the tale coming out of the blue. Unpredictable and gripping.

On the negative side, there were a few loose ends that I felt needed explaining better, but otherwise a great read. And an excellent first installment for this new trilogy. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Maybe the loose ends will be explained then.
