The Warning, James Patterson

The Warning opening line: “Well, the town doesn’t appear to be glowing.”

The Warning

My blurb:

Jordan and Maggie have been best friends since they started school. His dad works at the Nuclear Power Plant in their town, and her mother is the local vet. Their lives change forever when there is an explosion at the plant. First they are quarantined in separate camps and then they are allowed back home. But once they are back, they cannot leave. And appearances are deceiving

The Warning
In the wake of disaster, nothing in Mount Hope is the same. And it’s up to a young man and woman to put a stop to the strange happenings in their town before the danger they pose becomes fatal for them all.
Two roads lead to Mount Hope. None leads out.
Following a freak nuclear power-plant explosion, the small southern town was evacuated. Now, after a year in isolation, some residents are finally allowed to return home.
Best friends Maggie and Jordan quickly discover that Mount Hope is not as it was before. The roads leading out of town are blocked, phone networks and the Internet are cut off, and the power plant remains on military lockdown.
Something is horribly wrong, and their determination to uncover the truth soon has Maggie and Jordan in the crosshairs of a force more sinister than any they could have imagined.
My verdict:

Had I known the genre of this novel before I picked it up, I might not have read it. It is by far my least favourite and I would have missed out on a really great story. Well written and a quick read.
