Review: Quarantine by James Phelan

Quarantine (Alone #3) by James Phelan
Release Date: 2011
Publisher: Atom

Jesse has survived the chasers. He's survived the roving bands of humans. And he might even have started to make some new friends. But the quarantine period is up. The army is coming in. And Jesse's about to learn that the real test of survival has only just begun.

The author of the Alone series provided us with a very good ending to the trilogy and I was very satisfied.  First, may I say how much I enjoyed the characters in this book, especially Jesse.  His bravery makes him admirable and memorable for me, a true standout from other books of this type.

I enjoy a good zombie story, but this one had some additional elements that made it even more interesting. If you've not read the first two books in the story, it would be easy to pick up with this one and figure out exactly what's going on since the author does summarize here and there.  This story was fast-paced to the point of being breathless for me, which was amazing.  I just felt that I looked up and it was over, and I was left wanting more.

As some other reviewers did, I found some small issues with the ending and the fact that there were questions left unanswered that might have been nice to have had some closure on, but otherwise, the book raced to the end in a wonderful, exciting way. Great ending to a great series.  Highly enjoyable!
