In The Breaking, Daniel Greene combines a strong conflict with powerful characters and great writing to create another spellbinding entry in the End Time Saga, a story that features zombies, the military, the resilient West Virginians, and fascinating characters. A zombie virus is threatening to wipe out the United States, and it has infected many people already. Even the military is on the retreat. But Agent Mark Steele won’t give up. As the conflict intensifies, he must find a way to save the lives of his people, even at the cost of his own life.
Daniel Greene is a great writer and he clearly demonstrates a wonderful gift for character and plot. The plot is conflict-driven and in the midst of the action are very interesting characters that will undoubtedly stay long with readers. I enjoyed the pacing; it is fast, and the story features powerful moments in each chapter. One of the things I hate in a book is to read a whole chapter without anything dramatic happening, but that isn’t the case with The Breaking as readers are introduced to nonstop action right from the beginning of the story.
It is hard to tell if this book is dystopian, thriller, or pure fiction, because the author masterfully combines elements from the different genres into the story. The setting is memorable, unveiling an apocalyptic world with advancing chaos. It is not hard to notice the elegant prose, the intelligent and natural-sounding dialogues, and the awesome descriptions. This is a book that will delight both thriller fans and those who are fond of compelling dystopian stories.
