Publisher's Summary

The horrors of World War II are widely known. The horrors that have remained unknown - until now - are far worse. In the year 2093, an ancient biological weapon is accidentally unearthed from the sands of the Sahara Desert. 
Experts Shift Bader and Anta Chalthoum are called to investigate, but even they cannot fathom the breadth of what has been uncovered. The stakes quickly rise as the peril intensifies. Shift and Anta must set aside their budding feelings for each other as they face a catastrophe the likes of which the world has never known; the effects of which threaten to reach beyond the borders of our own world.

Good Twist on an old concept

The story isn’t new. It’s the end of the world through an unexpected threat. The writing was pretty good though so it kept my attention. I liked that was a good balance of explanation with discovery. Shift, the main character, is a well developed character who is kind of a sarcastic dork. It’s refreshing that the fate of the world doesn’t rely on the main character, for once, but on the team of people together.

Another thing, I learned things from this book. History and science. Wasn’t boring though it could get long winded here and there.

Narrator review: I picked up this book because of the Keith Michaelson. I’ve enjoyed many of his other books so took a chance on this. He continues to be top shelf quality.

Engaging set up and story

Story was engaging. Things moved pretty fast in the beginning and then slowed down, setting things up for what I am guessing will be future books. Some of the history was interesting but long, but the narrator was really strong. He made those sections interesting with great performance. Good and consistent voicing. I don't know how someone keeps all those character voices straight.

How the "end" came up was really interesting and well thought out. I'd recommend this book as a solid dystopian drama with well-developed characters. The story opens up with a good promise of more intense action in future books. Fun escape.
