When the end of the world comes,
Do you want to be the first to go?
Or the last to survive?
OUTPOST is the debut novel by ADAM BAKER about fifteen workers aboard a derelict oil platform in the Arctic Ocean who slowly discover that a mysterious pandemic is sweeping across the globe.
The crew has been waiting for their relief ship but it never arrives. They also find out that the world outside is slowly descending into chaos. After battling boredom and despair, they embark on a perilous journey to get home.
Unknown to the crew of the Kasker Rampart, this is no ordinary plague.
Already receiving significant praise, a lot of excitement has been building up around its release. I'm thrilled about the setting and hope to learn about the unique challenges that await the survivors in the frozen Arctic.
A story about a global crisis and the struggle for survival makes this required reading. There ought to be enough nuggets that may prove useful WTSHFT.
