I am fast running out of superlatives to describe just how good Nicholas Sansbury Smith is. After being blown away by the first two books of his Orb series this year, this tireless author has crafted yet another exquisite read.
After showing us his mastery of the Science Fiction genre he has now turned his hand to a modern day tale of a truly apocalyptic nature. This books combines some my favorite elements of virology, genetic manipulation, horror, action, suspense and zombie like mayhem. One of the major ingredients in this story is that most insipid of virus Ebola, and this for me is what made the read all the more frightening. The author has also once again shown his ability to develop characters in a way that draws you into the story and makes you feel like you have a vested interest in it.
I look forward to seeing where the author takes us in this series. Nicholas Sansbury Smith has well and truly arrived and I predict his star is on the fast track to the top.
Finally it gives me great pleasure to announce that in recognition of this authors excellent offering this year he has won the prestigious Lazy award this year for best author. More awards to follow soon.
