Pale Horse (A Project Eden Thriller book 3) by Brett Battles Book Review

by Brett Battles


Ive read both the 1st and 2nd (Click the book to see my full book reviews) in the Project Eden series and Im completely hooked.
Pale Horse was no exception as Ive just read this straight off the back of Exit 9 as I couldnt bear to stop reading after such an amazing cliffhanger.

Blurb
 And I looked, and behold a pale horse;
and his name that sat on him was Death,
and Hell followed with him.
—Revelations 6:8
A simple push of a button and the world will never be the same.

Martina Gable returns home from college to spend Christmas break with her family, but the relaxing vacation she expects is not even close to what she'll get.

Sanjay, a young man in Mumbai who knows more than he should about Project Eden’s plan, will do whatever he can to keep Kusum, the girl he loves, alive and safe.

A boy named Brandon Ash runs for his life in the hills of Montana, wanting only to see his family again.

But first there is Daniel, the boy’s father, who watches Olivia Silva’s finger hover over the enter key that will decide the fate of humanity.

Do you think you’re safe?



Opinion
After yet another sleepless night Ive just devoured book 3 Pale Horse...wow what another incredible read; even though it seemed slightly shorter but no less exciting; but that may have been me ripping through the book as it was unputdownable.
This book starts with the most amazing cliffhanger from Exit 9.

I have to say these books get better and better; something quite unique to many book series. Most books lose that momentum; but not with Project Eden books.

Book 3 concentrates on the devastation as the world realizes the impact of what has happened. Bretts imagery and excellent descriptive writing puts you right there beside your favorite characters; you can smell the fires burning and feel the cold snow.
This series is one of my favorite book series as Pale horse is credible, convincing, thrilling and breathtaking as Brett sweeps you along not wanting to stop turning those digital pages.
The main characters are still just as engaging and Im loving the subplots and the strong supporting characters. Brett could just skim over these subplots but they are becoming as exciting as the main; with just the right amount of time spent on them.
I don't want to be a book reviewer that adds spoilers but I cant give you much more without giving this incredible plot away. The world is in shock as the realization sinks in as to what has happened and we watch as governments and the resistance try to contain the virus.
What I love about this series is the fact we are following the everyday person like you or me. Its completely believable with futuristic germ warfare it could happen anytime and that makes this thriller even more horrific and frightening on a base level.
I would like to see more of Brandon and more about the evil Perez as he is sitting in the background a bit, so I hope Brett has something awful planned for him.

I just hope you can take the leap and buy book one Sick, you wont regret it and you'll be as hooked and addicted as I am.

Ive just downloaded book 4 Ashes and its burning a hole in my kindle; so excuse me while I go and find out whats happening in the aftermath of this devastating virus. Im sure you wont have to wait long till you find out if I like it.
Watch this space.
