Back Cover Blurb:

—An Enlightening Expedition

SENT to scout the area surrounding the FURC, what Kat and Tony find among the crumbling remnants of civilization convinces them that for all the challenges they’ve faced inside the compound, they’ve had it easy. Hoping to help some of the survivors, they encounter difficulty and danger—but the real risk they run arises from a secret aspect of their mission Tony hasn’t shared with his partner, a gambit that will put the pair in extreme peril from a ruthless enemy.

My Review:

Litherland returns to the world of Slowpocalypse with the same unique writing style that we’ve come to expect from him. His descriptive writing shines as he continues to develop the world in which his characters find themselves. I enjoy the way that Litherland picks up threads from previous novels and how he develops new ones to continue on throughout the series. At the same time, this is a complete story in and of itself.

I enjoyed the variety of different character types that Litherland develops throughout this novel. The variety really gives a sense of travelling through different regions. The main characters shine, but you get to know everyone quite well.

This novel was a great addition to the series. Litherland’s writing style allows the characters to come to life while the plot develops.
