Breakers (Book 1)

Breakers (Book 1) by Edward W Robertson

In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter.

When Vanessa dies of the flu, Walt is devastated. But she isn't the last. The virus quickly kills billions, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. As Raymond and Mia hole up in an abandoned mansion, where they learn to function without electricity, running water, or neighbors, Walt begins an existential walk to LA, where Vanessa had planned to move when she left him. He expects to die along the way.

Months later, a massive vessel appears above Santa Monica Bay. Walt is attacked by a crablike monstrosity in a mountain stream. The virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job--and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.

This review is from: Breakers (Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I found this book enjoyable. There are some parts that drag on a little too long. But the story is good. The plot was interesting. I have to say it wasn't what I expected. Now, there are some editing errors. Forgotten words here and there. But not enough to ruin the story. I really got to know and feel for the characters. I felt the author did a great job of humanizing them. I'm really hooked on Walt and will most likely pick up the next, just to see what he does! It was great following his journey and seeing him evolve as a person. If you're into Sci-Fi or Post Apocalyptic stories, read this!
