Book Review: Countdown

Countdown (Newsflesh Trilogy Novella)Countdown by Mira Grant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Countdown is a short prequel to the Newsflesh series. I have previously reviewed the first two books in the series: Feed and Deadline. I read the Kindle version of Countdown so it didn’t have page numbers but I think it probably has only about 65 pages. It’s a detailed account of the days in 2014 leading up to The Rising.

Mira Grant is an excellent world builder. Adding more details to the story of how the Kellis-Amberlee virus was created and spread only made the possibility that something like that could really happen seem even more believable to me. There wasn’t any brand new information in this book but it was a nice dose of the Newsflesh world to help tide me over until the final book, Blackout, is released this summer. I highly recommend Countdown for fans of the Newsflesh series.
