Description

The Fever struck hard and fast, rising out of the slums and claiming victim after victim. At first, reports trickled across the wire in small segments relegated to the final seconds of the broadcast news. Lost among stories of failing economies and political bickering, few noticed what proved to be the birth pangs of a monster. Within months, the disease dominated the news as thousands died and infection rates soared.

William Hill knew his chances of avoiding the virus sat squarely between slim and none. With experts predicting a global pandemic, his choices boiled down to not if, but where he would die. While the rest of the world built barricades and set up distribution points for food, he chose a simpler end. The island had been one of the last and best times with his father. He couldn’t think of a better place to spend his final days.

He wanted sun and sand, fresh fish on the grill and cool nights by the campfire. He wanted feel-good days filled with oldies on the radio, days when he could hoist the sails and run before the wind. He didn’t set out to make enemies, but he did. He didn’t plan on becoming humanity’s last hope for survival, or watching over an old woman and an eerie little boy either.

To William Hill, the island seemed as good a place as any to die.

He just didn’t realize how good.

    So obv this is part one of the island and tbh it's started off pretty slow! Found my self losing interest in a lot of parts. however the plot of the story sounds good and I actually do expect it to get better so bring on part two! Hopefully it does get a lot better.

    Sadly the author goes into long winded and unnecessary details all too often which makes reading this book a long, drawn out experience. Very drab indeed. Should be more 'to the point', just tell the story! We don't need to know every character's back story. The end of a chapter should leave the reader hungry to start the next, This book doesn't.
  • Do keep reading

    Great intro to the story - short and snappy and I read Books 1, 2 & 3 back to back. Reminiscent of Stephen King - writing really paints a picture in your imagination. Well done Mr Stark!! Just bought Book 4 for 99p - need to know what happens!!
  • Good story

    Based on the title, and the preview, I thought this book would be about a guy escaping disease to live on an island. Perhaps I was right, but the book itself spent page after page talking about this guy's life instead of getting to the point. And then, when it finally gets to the point, the book ends? I'll read book 2, but don't hold much hope for it.
