STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Morningstar Strain Meets The Martian
🧡 The first two chapters are a military version of what Andy Weir does with science in The Martian, but not quite as engaging, at least to me. BUT I highly recommend persevering as, once over, the main character, Lee, really comes into his own.
💚 Read this for its innovative take on zombies, for its oh so likeable main character and his uplifting heroism. Stay tuned for its nail-biting peaks and (occasionally devastating) troughs, reminiscent of the gripping style of Z A Recht’s Morningstar series.
💜 Be warned. If you enjoy this, as I did, it leaves you wanting more. And there are six books in the series. My TBR just got significantly longer.
Listened Free on Audible Plus.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Simple, but seamless, this is an example of audiobook production at its best. I was totally immersed in the story, the scenes and characters and could picture it all easily.
🎧 Christian Rummel has the rich, deep voice one would expect of a heroic super protagonist, but also a staggering ability to switch into teen boy or woman in her thirties without the listener even noticing.

On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission: Subvenire refectus. To rescue and rebuild.
