In the underground setting of a post-apocalyptic world, humans are forced to live deep underground. Their well-being depends on a select group of men called Surface Runners who dare to set foot on the surface to recover supplies and spare parts needed for the survival of humanity. But these brave men's Run time is limited. Anyone spending over forty minutes on the surface meets death. For the enemy controlling the surface is fierce and unforgiving. And their leader is seemingly unreachable and indestructible...

Coinciding with a massive attack that decimates a number of underground Colonies, Runners Command initiates an experiment that many expect to become humanity's ultimate weapon against the surface enemy. An experiment that will make humanity's return to the surface possible. A human experiment whose short life-span and dexterity is the key to their salvation.

Get ready for an Action Packed science-fiction story for all ages.

While the blurb intrigued me, there is very little to recommend this book. The only reason that I finished was some perverse need to push on through. For a scince fiction book, there was no science involved. While attempting to build drama, the author simply threw one "amazing" escape from death after another until I nearly passed out from boredom. The book also really needs an editor to try to make sense of this hash. Spend your money elsewhere.

There were just 2 reviews for this book and both of them were 5 star. Don't know what book they read but I could only make it to page 33, and that was after blowing it off twice and then giving it another chance. It reads like assignment in a creative writing class that was headed for a poor grade. Don't give up, just pick another subject and maybe writing style.

Very deep and interesting book. I agree there's action and great pacing and many reviews seem to be focusing on these. But I think that what's missing in the reviews is the major aspect of the book which is both the psychological and existential side of the main character. I don't want to spoil the story by saying too much. But try to imagine what Nobel goes through during his short life, the challenges, the disappointments, the loss and the truth about himself and humanity. The author was able to craft these despite the action and pacing. This in itself is impressive. Science-fiction or not, this book is a very deep story and a great page turner. I recommend highly!

A true page turner. Totally action-packed, quick and exciting to read. The author holds nothing back. Yo, battles are graphic and the characters get killed like in a great movie. Something's happening on each page. I'll read it again and again. Bravo!

Astonishing story! Beware of military conspiracies. Today's humankind is like the people forced to live underground. I can't imagine my life without this great book! It indeed deserves respect and is worth to read it. I recommend it to everyone.

I could not tear myself away from the book. It is unpredictable and interesting. It's disgusting and painful to read, but impossible to stop. I am reading it for the ninth time!

Fast paced and truly visually appealing, this story is a film in the making. The life underground, the surface runs and the challenges all lead to the experiment that takes us on an unforgettable and fast paced journey to get to the objective. For those who like Terminator, Blade Runner and Irobot, and want a story that pushes it even farther. A good read worth your time!
