REVIEW: Undiscovered Country #1
Book Title: Undiscovered Country #1
Book Description: This story starts off in a helicopter flight heading to the United States of America, which no one has heard from in over 30 years. After an attack on the helicopter, the story flashbacks to how it got there in the first place. The world has splintered, factions have formed and the major players on the global stage have set the standards. This story is a post apocalyptic story that shows what might happen when the major powers decide to faction the globe. With illness and death everywhere, mostly caused by an airborne virus, a group of experts are summoned via outdated diplomatic channels to the United States for a supposed cure. With the decision made, they set out to retrieve the cure to the airborne virus from the long silent United States of America.

Undiscovered Country, that phrase brings up to mind a few geek related things where the phrase has been used. Most of it centers around the usage of the future being the undiscovered country. In this case it refers to the United States of America. Having gone silent some 30+ years before this story starts, the USA is now the Undiscovered Country.
The cover is quite intriguing, which is part of what caught my attention in the first place. Set in the backdrop drop of what appears to be the Arizona desert it shows a shadowy figure sitting on a Bison. The cover definitely makes the reader wonder what’s going on.
The interior art is done just as well as the cover. Conveying what is going on in the story both with the visual backgrounds, as well as what the characters are going through. All while still being pleasing to the eye.
I do not read many post apocalyptic stories, while I do enjoy a good one, I do not usually seek them out. When I came across this story the cover intrigued me. What makes the United States the undiscovered country? After reading the story I figured out why. This story reminds me of something you might find in a Mad Max movie. If you like post-apocalyptic stories then I truly think this story is for you! I am definitely interested to see how this plays out clear through to the end!
