Reviewed by Anastacia Zittel for Readers' Favorite Omega Plague: Collapse by P.R. Principe is first and foremost about Bruno Ricasso. Ricasso is a guy's guy, a cop, a carabiniere, a man who wants to defend people, help them, and, most importantly, to keep them safe. When everyone in the world begins to get sick from an airborne version of AIDS, society starts to crumble around him, and the other cops are bailing on the small island he works and lives on, he is still trying to keep everyone safe. When the world really starts to go to pieces, he just wants to keep his sister safe - and I think all of us can understand how we just want to keep our families safe. For much of the book, Ricasso is trying to survive by himself and does so rather well, under the circumstances, though he does meet a few interesting characters along the way. P.R. Principe does a great job throughout with building and keeping the suspense of the story. The reader can't help but continue to turn the pages, wondering how Bruno is going to get out of the latest disaster and hoping he'll manage to keep his sister alive. Bruno does not show a lot of emotion throughout the book, keeping his feelings tightly in check in order to survive. The book wraps up the major story lines, including meeting up with the recurring bad guy, but leaves us hanging just enough to make us wonder if there is going to be a sequel. Omega Plague: Collapse is a book that will keep you up at night. It's a great story.

P.R. Principe has such an incredible way with words; his descriptions are vivid yet simple and not overdone; you see what the characters are seeing, you feel what they are feeling; you feel like you are there. I felt like I was experiencing what they were. “Omega Plague” was very hard to put down, as I had to know how everything would turn out. Each time I did have to stop reading, I found myself thinking and pondering on what I had read, and what might happen next. There is a lot of language, and some pretty violent/ gory scenes, all necessitated by the storyline. The fast-paced tempo of the writing built at a steady pace, with more than one shocking twist along the way. Principe is a gifted storyteller and writer (not always the same thing). The prose is effortless, yet strong and the same time. Conversations felt natural, with each character having a fully developed personality. But what struck me the most was just how for a book that is fiction, this (or something similar) is something that could actually happen. And more than just having the event itself occur (a lethal airborne virus), but it is the human reaction that is fascinating… watching man turn to monster, or hero. Would absolutely recommend to fans of thrillers, suspense, literary fiction.

"Omega Plague: Collapse” by P.R. Principe was absolutely captivating---and horrifying. Honestly, something like this is my worst fear for the future of humanity, even more so than a “war” or something—that an airborne strain of a lethal virus can spread and just send countries into chaos and destruction. Simply having that as a plot device would have been sufficient, but Principe takes it a step further with the hero Bruno battling other “issues” to put it mildly. There is intense action and some pretty descriptive graphic scenes, nothing gratuitous though and it all works for the plot. Great characterization and some of the best writing I’ve seen in a long time. This is truly one of those rare Indies that I feel belong in the Bookstores with the big guys. A suspenseful thriller that thought-provoking, haunting, and is not soon forgotten. Highly, highly recommend.

I personally thought OMEGA PLAGUE by P. R. Principe was really good, and this is really not normally the type of book I’d gravitate to (I’m more into paranormal romance) And in the beginning, I admit that I really wasn’t sure if I’d really be into it, but once I was about 25% in I was totally hooked and didn’t want to stop until I’d reached the end. I would describe this as a suspense/thriller/drama, but there was also great dialogue (my favorite part of the book) and crazy plot twists, and great character development. So you will definitely stay interested. The Italian backdrop is cool (made me Wiki Capri and Naples), and P.R. Principe writes in such a fluid and authentic manner… we really feel like we are there inside the story as it all unfolds (or collapses, as it may be). Each chapter end makes you want to keep reading, and Bruno, Cristian, and Il Serbo et al are some of the most dynamic, believable characters I’ve encountered. While this may not be my normal genre I’m really glad I took a chance and would happily read anything else that P.R. Principe writes in the future.

I had a shorter amount of time to read this book, “Omega Plague: Collapse” by P.R. Principe and I thought this might present a problem, but oh no! I flew through it in less than 24 hours as it was so freakin good I literally did not want to stop reading! This book was very suspenseful and the main characters were believable. Well written and everything tied together. When I write reviews I always try to point out what I liked and what I didn’t, but I honestly can’t think of one thing I didn’t like with this novel. Even the ‘bad guys’ were deliciously evil. Nothing was predictable or cliché. Even the ending… the epilogue… it was executed perfectly (honestly was wondering how he’d get out of that and what would happen…) I was totally immersed in the story from the prologue – even that was good, and normally I’m not a fan of prologues! And the very surprising twists kept me enthralled to the very end! Bravo!

wow… what an insane book! Holy bananas!! Okay, I don’t even know where to begin because so much happens and I don’t want to give anything away. “The Omega Plague” by author P.R. Principe is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. When they talk about books that are impossible to put down, this is totally one of those types. Outstanding writing. Flawless editing. The strong word choice and fluid prose makes it a very easy book to sink into. There are enough descriptions where you can picture everything perfectly, but not so much that it bogs down the pacing. Although this premise (a plague wiping out a society) isn’t exactly new, the way that Principe tackles it and adds other conflicts and struggles on top of it makes it feel fresh and original. This almost seems like it could be a movie or a miniseries, and I hope to read more from Principe!

This was a very original take on ‘fiction’ for me, and at times it seemed like I was reading a recounting of something “real” that had happened, even though that is obviously not the case. I know that all fiction novels are like that (realistic-feeling stories that are made up), but this one was exceptionally so….It is so well-written I was totally enraptured throughout, and the suspense and action just continued to build and build… and then build more. The characters were amazing. Bruno is an awesome MC and we definitely like seeing the story unfold through his POV. Cristian… I mean, whoa, didn’t see that coming! The dialogue is fast and smart, and the epilogue was perfect. By far one of the best books I’ve read all year. Really hope to read more from P.R. Principe in the future! Will recommend to my friends and family.
