Synopsis

In New York, Walt Lawson is about to lose his girlfriend Vanessa. In Los Angeles, Raymond and Mia James are about to lose their house. Within days, none of it will matter.

When Vanessa dies of the flu, Walt is devastated. But she isn't the last. The virus quickly kills billions, reducing New York to an open grave and LA to a chaotic wilderness of violence and fires. As Raymond and Mia hole up in an abandoned mansion, where they learn to function without electricity, running water, or neighbors, Walt begins an existential walk to LA, where Vanessa had planned to move when she left him. He expects to die along the way.

Months later, a massive vessel appears above Santa Monica Bay. Walt is attacked by a crablike monstrosity in a mountain stream. The virus that ended humanity wasn't created by humans. It was inflicted from outside. The colonists who sent it are ready to finish the job--and Earth's survivors may be too few and too weak to resist.

BREAKERS is the first book in the post-apocalyptic Breakers series.

Truly Stunning!

An intriguing storyline, but the writing and descriptions were truly stunning. Robertson had me standing, walking, running, hiding and fighting alongside his characters as they moved through a very real and terrifying world. Very nicely done!

I didn't think I would enjoy an alien invasion story line but this one was pretty good.

Perhaps a little slow to start, and occasionally not very easy to picture the scenes being described, but still an intriguing tale and well with the time spent .

Overall a great read. Characters are just average people, plot well planned right up to the Aliens and mother ship. A solid page turner thats hard to put down. Just bought "Meltdown" book #2 and hope it is as good.

Really hard to put this down. Characters and storylines flowed well and kept suspense going. If you like end of the world books you'll like this. Definitely worth a read.

Can't bring myself to finish reading this book. Book shifts between two couples. The male protagonists are too similar, and the constant switching between the two gets tiring. Far too many descriptive words in a sentence, makes for slow staggered reading. Became a chore to read. Granted I'm only halfway or so. But I'm not sure if I will ever finish it. And the sudden necrophilic reference involving one of the male protagonist was out of nowhere, random and distasteful by any standard.

I really enjoyed this fast paced, action filled, science-fiction thriller. The characters were believable, interesting & engaging & developed into heroic figures throughout the intersecting story-lines. The finale requires an allowance for luck beyond that usually needed in fiction, but probably was required to keep the pace of the book supersonic.

Well thought out alternate present page turner with an apocalyptic plague, alien invaders and a cast of characters I'd be honored to share the end of the world with. Thanks for a great read.
