Ex-Communication introduces new challenges for our heroes while also shoring up loose strings from the previous two books.
This book is a bit more predictable than the previous two. The mystery of a sub-plot was much more engaging to me than the main plot. However, the action and adventures don't let up. The super hero team has met a challenge more cunning, more dangerous, and more frightening than the challenges of the previous books.
I'm looking forward to release of the fourth book in the series.
Assuming you've read the first book in the series, then you are in for a real treat. This book builds on the plot of the first and delves deep into the mysteries of the origin of the ex-virus and puts the heroes up against some serious foes.
What I liked most about this book compared to the last is the amount of mystery. This book has more thrills, more action, and more surprises. I assumed I knew where this book was headed but alas it surprised me--in a good way!
I truly enjoyed this book. I was a bit concerned the amalgamation of the various elements wouldn't work but Peter Clines pulled it off quite well.
The characters are believable as they learn how to combine their strengths to overcome their individual flaws. The science is strong enough that you don't question it too much. The origins of the zombies is truly refreshing... although viral-based it doesn't use the traditional formula.
The book uses a "now" and "then" model to tell the story. At first, it's a bit distracting but after the fourth chapter it a powerful method to build the world and keep the story moving. You don't have to wait until the last couple of chapters to enjoy the action.
This book is a great listen for avid fantasy readers who want something you can read in one sitting that is both mysterious and engaging.
