Impact – Rob Boffard

Impact | Rob Boffard

A signal has been picked up from Earth.

The planet was supposed to be uninhabitable. But it seems there are survivors down there – with supplies, shelter and running water. Perhaps there could be a future for humanity on Earth after all.

Riley Hale will find out soon enough. She’s stuck on a spaceship with the group of terrorists that is planning to brave the planet’s atmosphere and crash-land on the surface.

But when the re-entry goes wrong, Riley ends up hundreds of miles from her companions Prakesh and Carver, alone in a barren wilderness. She’ll have to use everything she knows to survive.

And all of them are about to find out that nothing on Earth is what it seems…

Regular readers will be aware that I am somewhat of a fan of Mr Boffard’s work. Tracer was fantastic and made my books of the year list for 2015, Zero-G upped the ante, and now we have Impact, book #3 in the Outer Earth trilogy.

The question was, having turned the action up to 11 for Zero-G, could Rob find a new setting on the dial for the finale?

Well, yeah, he knocked it out of the park.

Again.

Impact is an interesting change of setting from the first two as we find Riley and chums down on earth. The action still comes thick and fast, and the stakes are cranked up to the max. Facing new dangers, she has to put her tracer skills to full use just to survive.

Hard to say more without spoilers, but go with me on this – if you liked Tracer and Zero-G, you’re going to love Impact. And if you’ve not read Tracer or Zero-G, what are you waiting for? You’re in for quite a ride…

You can find Rob on Twitter @RobBoffard, his website, and last but definitely not least, on YouTube doing epic rap book reviews.

and launching a book into space to be the first author reading in space. SPACE!
