Book three in this series, and Smith isn’t done with us yet! For which, I must say, I’m grateful, as I’m really enjoying this series… if one can enjoy books that are essentially a never-ending (apparently) nightmare.
That said, this book makes one consider who really *is* the true monster: the human who has been turned into a monster as a result of a virus, or one who is yet human, yet turns on his fellow man?
It’s funny. Whenever I read these books, the predominant colour in my mind is grey. I’m not sure if that’s as a result of the covers depicting grey people, or how my mind deals with the horror within these books’ pages. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, but an interesting fact I just realised. Everything is grey.
This book again expands our knowledge of the post-apocalyptic nightmare the characters are dealing with. We get to see a few more locations, and revisit a few as well. The action is relentless, with Team Ghost again getting little more than a few hours’ recovery time at best (less than 72 hours, mostly) between missions. I appreciated the few moments of beauty that were able to creep into the pages, reminding us of what Team Ghost is fighting for.
An excellent instalment of the saga, and I look forward to the next one with relish. Bring it on!
