Book Review Pandora: Outbreak (A Pandora Thriller #1) by Eric L. Harry
Title: Outbreak (A Pandora Thriller #1)
Author: Eric L. Harry
Stars: 3 Stars
I was really excited to read this book it sound fascinating. Diving right in I found it more depressing than most apocalyptic fiction or pandemic sub-genre books that I have read in the past.
The characters might be likable for some but this reader struggled to connect with anyone of them. The misogynistic undertones that always seem to fall into this genre was too much as was the repetitive words that were used. A good editor could have fixed those quickly.
The series I am sure will have an upswing at the books move forward.
Thank you to Netgalley and the Rebel Base Books for the Advance Copy
BEGINNING OF THE END
They call it Pandoravirus. It attacks the brain. Anyone infected may explode in uncontrollable rage. Blind to pain, empty of emotion, the infected hunt and are hunted. They attack without warning and without mercy. Their numbers spread unchecked. There is no known cure.
Emma Miller studies diseases for a living—until she catches the virus. Now she’s the one being studied by the U.S. government and by her twin sister, neuroscientist Isabel Miller. Rival factions debate whether to treat the infected like rabid animals to be put down, or victims deserving compassion. As Isabel fights for her sister's life, the infected are massing for an epic battle of survival. And it looks like Emma is leading the way .
