Synopsis

After an epidemic spreads through the country, Brooklyn Harper’s high school years come to an abrupt end.

Implanted in a rural camp, Brooklyn and her friends are cut off from their families and the outside world. Each day is filled with combat training to assure their safety against the crazed, belligerent, and deadly— those infected with a mysterious virus.

If the world couldn’t get any crazier, a letter ups the insanity…

After being assured day after day that the world outside their little camp had been compromised, Brooklyn’s cabin-mate, Dawson Winters, finds a letter that turns everything they’d known upside down. There is a world outside the trees that surrounds their camp, and the virus they all feared seems non-existent.

Determined to see it herself, Brooklyn plots with others to attempt an escape…

On the outside, Brooklyn finds the world is as normal as ever. But when they are attacked in the city, they dispose of their attackers far more efficiently than any normal human.. Is there more to Brooklyn and her friends then just being highly trained?

As their exploration continues, the group is faced with impossible feats. Betrayal, love, death, and a powerful sense of camaraderie lead Brooklyn and her friends to fight for their life, their freedom, and most of all, each other.

My Thoughts

I was really excited to read Omen Operation, Taylor Brooke’s debut novel, after reading the synopsis. This year has been all about throwing me out of my typical pattern when it comes to books. I’ve been finding myself drawn toward the post-apocalyptic genre a bit more lately, so this was an exciting addition to my pile.

From the get-go I was hooked. Each character was so well-defined in their personality and way of living that I felt like I was sitting right there with them in their cabin. Of all the characters I really love Gabriel with her feisty, fierce self and Porter with his sensible quiet. I also enjoyed reading Brooklyn’s character, as she’s an excellent heroine with a realistic sense of self-discovery. She has faults, but she doesn’t wear them on her sleeve. I love strong female characters, so as far as Gabriel and Brooklyn go, I was in from the start.

Omen Operation kept me at the edge of my seat through the entire read, and I couldn’t put this book down without thinking about it. Through all of the twists and turns, shocks and surprises, I couldn’t wait until the next page. Then suddenly, it was all over. I look forward to the next release in this series, as I was left wanting more.
