From thriller and suspense master Brett Battles comes Exit 9, the second book in the Project Eden thriller series.
Before, it was just a test, a little demonstration to see if the virus worked. It did, and so much better than its creators could have ever hoped. But the testing phase is over. It’s time for Project Eden to take the next step. If its members have their way, humanity is about to get a reboot. It’s up to Daniel Ash and the others in the outnumbered resistance to keep the Project from severely downsizing mankind. But can their small force succeed in the face of a plan decades in the making? The human race had better hope so, because if Ash and his friends can’t….

This is the second in the series, you should read the first book, Sick, before or you'll be lost. Even with that there were times I had to rewind to remember where I was. There are quite a few side stories going on as we come up to ID or Implementation Day. The day Project Eden gives the human race a do-over by killing all but 70 million people on the planet. Kinda scary when you think about it. Of course I started to get a cold in the middle of reading this book. One thing for sure... Make sure you have book 3 before you end this one. It's got one hell of a cliffhanger! I was yelling at my iPhone when it ended I am so frustrated. But I enjoyed the read and I really like this narrator. He does good accents and there are quite few in this book.
I had a bit of trouble remembering who was who with the new characters and Ash doesn't come on the scene right off but all in all I liked the book and would recommend it to friends
Not a five star series, but entertaining. I see some reviewers don't like that some things are not all that realistic. To them I say, this is Fiction. What I tell my wife when it comes to science fiction, just believe it is possible and enjoy the ride. One reader was disappointed that the good guys might win in this series. It's not reality he said. What's up with that? Why can't you have a feel good book? The game of thrones crap only goes so far before you just can't digest the depression anymore. Books and movies are an escape. Feeling good at the end is a good thing. If you want to read about bad guys, then read non fiction. Humans have plenty of bad guys that come out ahead. My only gripe of this book is that the author uses a poor ploy to get you to buy the next book. He likes to end his story from book 2 and on, right in the middle of a cliff hanger. That actually makes me a little miffed, like maybe I should not buy the next one just to show him what's up. But I buy them anyway. Also, Daniel Ash, the supposed hero, is really dumb. He always asks the stupid questions at the wrong time. You can just count on it. I wish there was a better hero to cheer for but what the heck. The stories move along nicely and they are well read. Great for the over the road trucker.
Well it was entertaining, but I think there are a lot of books in this series and it just seems like its one of those books where the bad guy is always gonna get stopped by the end of tge book . kinda getting bored with the series.
Yes, but only after they read the first one of course.
When the button was FINALLY pushed, and the person who did it!! I did not see it coming
Just the first book in this series. It was the same.
No, not really
The ending was so abrupt that I pulled over on the side of the road and downloaded the next book!! I JUST had to hear what happened next :)
Excitement! Excitement! Excitement!
Great voice! and truly adds to the thrill
Cant wait to start the next book! Brett Battles is one of the best authors Ive ever read and Ive been a bookaholic for over 65 years.
There's no account for taste. But, I'd think if you've never, ever, read or listened to anything before in your life, have no reference point whatsoever, it might work.
No. The sad thing is that I've read all his "Cleaner" Quinn's novels and enjoyed them immensely. But, when he migrated to the apocalypse bandwagon, he lost me. It reminds me when Schwartzenegger and Stalone tried their hands at comedy. Disaster!
Absolutely. I'm listening to him right now and enjoying it very much. It's not his fault the story sucks.
Anger and Disappointment. I felt cheated by buying this load of crap!
Live and learn!
"Gripping and captivating, excellent narration"
After listening to Sick and being captivated by the Project Eden series I couldn't wait to listen to Exit 9, part 2 of the series. And the second book totally lived up to expectation, a roller coaster that captivated me and kept me wanting more. Brett Battles has really pulled off an excellent gripping series and the Project Eden series is highly recommended.
The narration by Macleod Andrews is as always excellent - great differentiation between characters with his tone of voice and style.
