El Paso wasn’t the Promised Land that Ian and his crew had hoped for, but it wasn’t a total bust either. The concept of a safe haven in today’s world was a fool’s errand at best. This was the consensus of their tiny band and to keep moving their only salvation. While others waited in their pens, the four from the private security company moved on, taking on as many they could help, in hopes that they too would join the fight. Their journey was long and arduous, but it was worth it…they hope.
El Paso is where the final evidence that this is more than a simple lab experiment gone wrong is. It was too focused, with too many players who knew too much too early in the game, causing assumptions to be made. Assumptions that gained strength with every step they took until the small troop was convinced that this was not just a simple virus of natural origins. America was under attack.
Point of view:
3rd person. Multiple perspectives.
Joseph Hensen takes the helm this time for another great addition to the series. This time following Ian and his small band of mercenaries as they make their way to find answers. Along the way they pick up unlikely allies.
I love the Ian acknowledges and embraces that the world is different now – that while he may be a leader and feels responsibility to those in his groups, he does not turn into a dictator. Giving them all free will and the choice to stay or go with him. His relationship with the younger members of the group is particularly endearing.
Again, loved characters are lost and it’s always so hard, but it makes these stories so real at the same time.
This absolutely ends on a cliffhanger as Ian’s “team” uncovers more of the plot that led to the outbreak.
Andrew B Wehrlen does another great job here. I especially appreciate his ability to bring levity to the banter and anticipation to the fighting scenes.
