This is a good prelude to the series. It provides a little background for the series to follow. I liked the characters and the fast pace of the action. It would be nice to see the two main characters left standing show up again in the series. One thing about this set of books is that you are guaranteed that some will die when you least expect it. Keeps you guessing and interested. Good job. Keep up the good work.

Outcome is one of Robertson's Breakers series, and as captivating as the rest.  I read Breakers, Melt Down, and Knifepoint first.  They kept me entertained so much I felt I had to read Outcome, as well.  Although all these books deal with the same event, they are all unique stories and really come together as a whole to explain the world Robertson has crafted.  An excellent read.  My only wish is that it had been a little longer.

The fast paced writing style, the excellent plot and supporting characters make for a great read. The reality of what happens if a pandemic spreads globally is frightening...more so because according to national geographic magazine the fact is not if it will happen...but when. Read this first book in the series it will make you think before sitting next to someone with a cough. Jp

I didn't realize it was the prelude to a series and I am really glad it is because I want more! I didn't see the ending coming (and I usually do) so that is a sign that the series will keep you wondering what's next.

Little slow and confusing in the beginning, but quickly picked up. The story got quite complex and was well structured with richly written characters. Usually we enter these post-apocalyptic stories after everything has already gone to crap, it was a nice change of pace to see how events unfolded in this world. I was on the fence about whether to continue or not, but then saw I had book one waiting on my Nook already so I guess I will give this dark tale one more shot to impress me. So far things are looking good.

Tired old story of plague and/or contagion. Author must live or have lived in Greenwich Village area as there are many references to the streets and subways all of which are accurate except one: the Astor Street station is a local stop. You can only get the 6 train here. The 4 & 5 do not stop there. Spoiled the authenticity a bit for me as I am on that station every day. Oh well, nobody's perfect.

A nicely written prelude to a larger series. Definitely planning on looking up the rest of the books.

A good short story that sets the scene nicely for breakers (although through half of breakers they don’t make an appearance so I hope we hear what happens to the characters at some point).  It is a short story so you don’t get the full picture, but if you liked Stephen King’s “The Stand” I would suggest you pick this up as well.

It fails the basic plausibility test. You're going to stop a mankind killing virus by pulling people with symptoms off the train? That's it? Call it good? I just can't read it.

Really enjoyed

Wow, what a surprise! From the blurb & somewhat boring title, thought it would be a run of the mill apocalyptic story. Rather, this is a tension fillled story with two attention getting characters, ellie & chip. There is callousness, a drive for survival, yet also a caring humanity. There are plot twists that definitely throws you off guard.

Read this book last night, looked up the author to give a review, and was pleasantly surprised to learn this was only a prelude to a series. So, I bought a few sets of this author's books. Can't wait to start reading them. Guess that almost says it all. So nice to find a new prolific author.
