Future Release Review: Horizon

Horizon  (Jan 24, 2012)
Book #3/Final?

I can't help but feel emotionally exhausted and spent, every time I finish one of these books. Self-contempt, atonement, and redemption, set the tone in this post-apocalyptic somber tale. Those who have followed these books know that the zombie sub-plot is only a small part of what these books are about. An introspection into love, life, and humanity is the main focus.

The book starts off fairly slow and you’re left wondering if this is just another “Life in the Box” type sleepy novella. As in, not much happening but more of the same post apocalyptic day to day stuff. Without giving anything away, yes things do progress in this book, and end with what seemed to me as a finale.

One month has passed since the events that end the last book. It took about a quarter of the book before things started to get truly interesting. From there, it’s back to being an edge of your seat thriller that doesn’t let up. The ending brings about definite conclusion that is both satisfying and a bit somber. Still, there still room for more in this world, but not without possibly ruining this perfect conclusion.

Another well written and thoughtful book, but poorly edited. At least the version I received. Lots of mistakes, mainly dealing with the characters. A few inconsistencies, one specifically with a being person killed one chapter and coming back a few chapters later, was too strange to ignore.

Overall, another great chapter to a well thought out and meaningful series.  I definitely recommend this book to anyone already following these books.

This book is set to release on Jan 24th, 2012.  I received an ARC via NetGalley.
