Ashes (A project Eden Thriller number 4) by Brett Battles Book Review

From thriller and suspense master Brett Battles comes Ashes, the fourth book in the continuing Project Eden thriller saga.
The hammer has fallen. The deadly Sage Flu has been unleashed. The scramble for survival is in full force.
Martina Gable and her family escaped to a secluded mountain cabin in hopes of avoiding the death sweeping the desert valley below, but have they gone far enough?
Dominic Ray, manager of a tropical, private island resort, has a dream job. The weather, the food, the drinks, the people—life couldn't be better. What he didn’t expect—what no one could have expected—was that his good life was about to disappear. 
In a sea of the sick and dying, Sanjay and Kusum desperately search for a place beyond Mumbai where they and the group they are leading can be safe, and where they can prepare for what the future may bring.
Brandon Ash wants nothing more than to be with his father and sister, but there is something waiting for him on a deserted, snow-covered highway. Something that may mean the reunion will never happen.
As Daniel Ash, Brandon's father, lies unconscious from the serious wounds he suffered while hunting for his son, his daughter Josie realizes it's up to her to find her brother and bring him home. But the search will be a dangerous one, that will take her far from home.
And then there is Project Eden, watching the plague kill as they had planned, even as they prepare to activate the next phase.

What will you do to survive?
Ashes is best read after completing volumes 1-3 (Sick, Exit 9, and Pale Horse)  

Ashes is the 4th book in this incredible series and slightly slower paced than the other four but no less exciting and its nice to have a very slight slow down to find out more about the fantastic characters. Im sooo addicted to this series I simply cannot stop reading and devoured book four in another one night sitting.
The subplots have become stronger and more developed and Im enjoying the introduction of  another group.

I missed Captian Ash as he is recovering from book 3 and taken a back seat in book 4. Brandon his son however has taken over in this book and is growing up as tough and intuitive as his Dad a clever move from Brett.
What I love about this series is the fact that even one of the sick often doesnt realise how dangerous they are by doing something so simple they risk thousands of lives.
This is definitely a gripping and engaging read through every chapter. Brett has created yet another brilliant cliffhanger and this one is genius; it will throw the resistance into mayhem trying to sort this one. Ive already downloaded Eden rising book 5 and its glowing nicely on my paperwhite ready to read.

I highly recommend this series but read them in order to get the best out of this incredible plot.
