Wow! What An Ending
5 out of 5 stars
Wow, where do I start with this one. First off, I’ve loved the Alt Apocalypse series. I thought Abrahams did something extremely ambitious but also interesting by taking the same characters and same sort of over-arching storyline to different apocalypse situations. Each situation was different and therefore different people died in different books.
Pox is the last book in the Alt Apocalypse series, which, if you didn’t know or realize, the books spell out Alt Apox:
So, when I realized this was going to be it, I went in a bit worried that it was going to let me down. Not because Abrahams has let me down before (he hasn’t), but because it was such a unique series – how the heck was he going to tie up all the loose ends and maybe even tie the worlds together. You could have given me one hundred guesses and I wouldn’t have come up with a more clever way to tie the worlds together. Proving that Abrahams is a true master author.
I really want to write how he tied it all together, but just know that you’re in for a ride. I’m so happy that it ended the way that it did and honestly each character got what I thought they deserved. I honestly couldn’t ask for more and that’s rare with apocalypse books.
I think I need to end my review here because I want to spoil this book SO bad, but everything else I want to talk about revolves around the choices that Abrahams made and the different things that he put into this specific book that tied everything up in a nice bow. If you’ve read and enjoyed any of the other books in this series – you should sprint to pick this one up. If you haven’t, I highly recommend the whole series (I think that Torrent was my personal favorite).
A devastating earthquake. A biohazard breach. A race to survive the worst of nature and humankind. This is the Alt Apocalypse.
The mind-bending conclusion to the groundbreaking, genre-splitting series connects the previous four installments through an incredibly woven story which moves through space and time.
All of your questions are answered in the epic sci-fi adventure: Pox.
