Ex-Isle review

91DHafVsT8L 664x1024 Ex Isle

“It is an easy thing to rule by fear.”

It’s been years since the tidal wave of ex-humans washed over the world. Since then, thanks to St George and his fellow heroes, the community known as the Mount has been the last known outpost of safety, sanity, and freedom left to humanity.

But even for the Mount, survival still balances on a razor’s edge—and after a disaster decimates the town’s food supply, the heroes must make a risky gamble to keep its citizens from starving.

And then the news arrives of a strange, man-made island in the middle of the Pacific. An island populated not just by survivors, but by people who seem to be farming, raising children, living—people who, like the heroes, have somehow managed to keep the spark of civilization alive.

Paying this place a visit should be a simple goodwill mission, but as the island reveals itself to be a sinister mirror-image of what the heroes have built at the Mount, the cost of their good intentions becomes dangerously high.

I’ve mentioned this series before and have loved every chapter of this one.  There were a few sad developments, but they were in line with the character development that I’ve come to expect.  Bottom line : if you like zombies and comic book level superheroes, this is a great series to pick up.

    Loved this series. The characters, the way the story was told, and the bad guys.


    Muuuuuuuuch better than book 4 which made me want to quit the series. Clines is back to writing good stuff.
