Ebola AND a Terrorist plot? I’ve never been more interested.
4.9 stars out of 5
Ebola – one of the deadliest diseases. Ebola K, named after the small village in which it decimates the population with ease and terrifying quickness. An American is there teaching the poorest of the poor in this small village when the outbreak happens and he and his friend do everything they can to help out the overrun hospital. Austin (the American) calls his friends older brother who happens to be much worse than he could have ever expected. Throw in a terrorist sleeper cell that is now awake and ready to pounce using this deadly Ebola K… this book is a page-burner from start to finish.
Adam Verner narrates this book, and does a superb job. I felt like I knew him and his voice. He, like a good narrator does, added to the story making me happy that I listened to this on audiobook compared to just reading it. The audio quality is perfect—studio quality with no errors or issues at all. Since reading this, I have looked for other books read by him (including Ebola K 2).
My biggest complaint, and the only reason that my overall impression of the book is that it just ends. There is no real ending—it is left completely wide-open for the next book. And after reading the first Slow Burn book by him, I felt that exact same way. I understand keeping a reading invested and wanting more, but come on! Give me some sort of ending! I am eagerly awaiting the second book right now (it is out in eBook and on Audible).
I loved The Hot Zone, and any other book on Ebola (or a similar virus), so this book really tugged at my heart strings. Adair really had my attention and he wouldn’t let it go. He jumped from person to person and place to place with ease, and kept me glued to my seat.
I was given a copy of this from AudiobookReviewer.com in exchange for an honest review.
Ebola, Terrorism, and Hope
In 1989 the Ebola virus mutated to into an airborne strain that infected humans for the first time on American soil in Reston, Virginia. Through belated containment efforts and luck, nobody died.
Now, in the remote East African village of Kapchorwa, the Ebola virus has mutated into another airborne strain without losing any of its deadly potency.
In this thriller, terrorists stumble across this new, fully lethal strain and while the world fearfully watches the growing epidemic in West Africa as Sierra Leone goes into country-wide lockdown, only a few Americans are aware of Ebola K and the danger it poses—to be the deadliest pandemic in the history of mankind.
Can they do anything to protect themselves from this killer disease? Can they stop the terrorists?
I’m just going to put this out there: I grew up with an irrational fear of Flying Monkeys. How is a little kid supposed to know that they only exist in Oz?
I’m not a native of any state. I’ve lived in so many that I see myself as a native American, which works out for me since I am also fractionally a Native American to an improbable, yet significant degree. I lived more than half of my life in Texas and I have a great affinity for Austin. it is a wonderfully diverse city full of interesting people. I now live in Colorado where I enjoy spending my time in the mountains, cycling, hiking, or walking my dogs. Oh, and writing… I do that too.
