    1. A decir verdad nunca me había sentido atraída por leer un libro de ciencia ficción siempre que me llegaba algún libro de este género a las manos los apilaba en una sección de mi librero y mas nunca los volvía a tocar—con este fue distinto— porque fue mi primer libro que ganaba en un concurso o giveaway y por ello gano un valor especial. Tenía mis dudas al principio, no sabía si sería capaz de leerlo pero la portada ayudo a que lo hiciera—no juzgue al libro por su portada pero inf [...]


    2. Really glad this series didn't devolve into sexxxy times for the girl-woman shero. Yeah, she can get busy, on her terms, (with a guy who really does play out as the good kind of nice guy, not the nice-so-i-can-get-in-your-pants type,) but not at the sacrifice of good story. It's really all about the plot action. Still not enough answers about the world in which they find themselves. I don't know if there will be more installments, there are a lot of open ended elements to the story, but it's sti [...]


    3. Pros: great protagonist, fascinating world, interesting aliens, complex plotCons: minor plot complaints, Sam survives a LOT of dangerous situations without injuryThough months have passed since the events that took place in Shiliuyuan station, Sam Shao is still haunted by what she saw there and what she knows Sillith’s virus is doing to the people of her city. She wants to expose the truth of the alien haan, what they really look like and have been doing, and so has teamed up with some other d [...]


    4. openbooksociety/article/faBrought to you by OBS reviewer SammyWow this series is really hitting its stride. Once again action packed, well written and this time much easier to follow. I highly recommend reading the first two books in this series first, it will add so much to your understanding of the story line, whhich is awesome.In this story we get a better feel of everyone and the feelings they have. Sam was much more interesting in this addition, her thoughts and how she sees things, were li [...]


    5. Fallout is everything I've come to expect from science-fiction author James K. Decker. The story includes heart-stopping action, fascinating technology, an intricate plot with plenty of surprises, and perfectly balanced descriptions which allow me to see the scenes as I go.In Fallout, sequel to The Burn Zone, Sam's newly adopted brother, Alexei, joins the story but seems to be involved with the wrong crowd. Sam will stop at nothing to protect her family as she and Vamp team up to uncover the tru [...]


    6. I received this book for free through First Reads.And thanks to the author for initialing it!First of all, and this should be obvious, this is a sequel. That means that it helps if you read the first bookbeforethis book. Unfortunately, I don't always do the smart thing. So I was glad that this book started off with some subtle background information.Sam Shao knows things that nobody else knows. She knows the truth. The haan crash-landed on Earth a number of years ago. At least, that's what ever [...]


    7. Primero, debo decir que este libro lo gane en uno de los ‘giveaways’ que realizo el autor: James K. Decker; segundo, este es el primer libro que leo de este autor… Y tengo entre mis compras de Navidad comprar el primer libro de la serie que es ‘The Burn Zone’ y solo hablare de lo que leí en ‘Fallout’ y tercero pero no menos importante ¡Es mi primera experiencia con un libro de ciencia ficción, nunca jamás había leído un libro de este género hasta ahora y realmente no me pued [...]


    8. "Fallout" is the sequel to "The Burn Zone" and the prequel "Ember". It's a great series for anyone who likes science-fiction action novels. Since it is the second in the series, you will want to read "The Burn Zone" first. If you don't, you won't know what's going on because the first book sets the stage for the events in "Fallout". Also, most of the characters have already been introduced and fleshed out in "The Burn Zone", so it is assumed you know who everyone is already in "Fallout".I'd even [...]


    9. This book was definitely better than the first one! In the first book, I struggled a bit to understand the world the story took place in, but with this prior knowledge now, I felt like I could focus more on the storyline. Just like the first book, this is incredibly fast-paced and full of nonstop action - which I love. What I love about Decker, is that he really knows how to twist up the plot and take the story in unexpected directions. It's the type of story where you honestly can never guess w [...]


    10. I hope this is a trilogy because I want to know more.Now that we know what the haan are and why our worlds merged (from book 1), this book is about revealing that and dealing with the consequences of it. There were a lot of different layers to the story. As with book one, the 3i tablets featured heavily. As did Nix.The ending caught me nicely by surprise and made me revisit a lot of my assumptions while reading.


    11. Nowhere on this book did it indicate it was #2 in a series. But right from the get-go I felt like I was missing information. Felt like that for the rest of the read, which was annoying. Hard to review in that context so I'm not applying a star rating.
