    In the late fall of 2013, a lethal pandemic virus emerges from the Islamic Republic of Indonesia (IRI) and rages unchecked across every continent. When the Jakarta Flu threatens his picture-perfect Maine neighborhood, Alex Fletcher, Iraq War veteran, is ready to do whatever it takes to keep his family safe. As a seasoned sales representative for Biosphere Pharmaceuticals, makers of a leading flu virus treatment, Alex understands what a deadly pandemic means for all of them.

    What did you love best about The Jakarta Pandemic?

    What was terrifying about this book, and had me actually scared, wasn't the virus, but the people and their subsequent actions when society crumbled and survival of the fittest incurred. And, how all of that encroached on the protagonist's neighborhood. There are those that plan ahead, and those that wish to take from those who have. Konkoly created some terrifying interlopers in to this former bedroom community that had me pulling my covers up to my chin. Looking forward to his next book. Also, the narration was excellent.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. It was the reactions of the neighbors to each other, and the disintegration of society and civil behavior.

    Night Watch is a world as elaborate and imaginative as Tolkien or the best Asimov. Living among us are the "Others", an ancient race of humans with supernatural powers who swear allegiance to either the Dark or the Light. A thousand-year treaty has maintained the balance of power, but an ancient prophecy decrees that one supreme "Other" will rise up and tip the balance. When a young boy with extraordinary powers emerges, will the forces of the Light be able to keep the Dark from corrupting the boy and destroying the world?

    Parusski says: "Lyrical, haunting and engrossing!"
    "A book about nothing"
    Overall

    I usually don't post reviews, but this book was so awful I felt compelled to warn people off. No plot development, characters left in the wind and just no story. The conclusion was absolutely idiotic, boring and cheap. WTF? Amazing that it was published. Well narrated though.
