Title: UK2 (Project Renova Book 3)
Author: Terry Tyler
I couldn’t wait to get started on the final book in the Project Renova series. Having followed Vicky, Lottie, Dex, and the rest of the bat fever survivors I was desperate to know what they had in store for them this time.
I’ve always loved Terry Tyler’s writing voice and find her novels thoroughly enjoyable. UK2 was no exception. Every chapter is told from a different characters POV. Dex is first up, and I’m quickly reminded why I started to despise him about half-way through Lindisfarne (book 2)! Every novel needs a bad guy, and Dex is that guy. He is that character you really wish someone would kill, but they keep on surviving.
My favourite character throughout the series has been Lottie, and we see how much she’s grown in UK2. She bursts onto the scene holding a knife to someone’s throat with a calm control that should be alien to a teenager. She’s witnessed too much, lived through the worst of times, and has secrets that are eating away at her and yet she’s one of the strongest and wisest characters on the island. Lottie’s mum, Vicky goes through some serious changes of her own in UK2, and I was pleased to see an inner strength begin to emerge.
We meet new people, and we lose old friends as the truth about bat fever, and Project Renova unfolds. I loved the way each character realises what’s happening almost too late and how they deal with the circumstances they find themselves in. I could picture the scenes like I was watching a dark and disturbing film. There are plenty of ‘gasp’ moments as the twists fall into place. I especially loved Flora’s development as she slowly understands that all is not as she believed.
UK2 contains a mix of themes from building friendships to conspiracy theories, and murder to romance. It’s all seamlessly blended to give the reader an extraordinary experience.
We are left with a perfectly crafted ending (and deeply satisfying in some areas) but with enough little threads to leave you wondering what happens next. UK2 is one of those books that stays with you long after you finish reading.
The pace steps up in this final instalment of the Project Renova trilogy, as the survivors’ way of life comes under threat.
Two years after the viral outbreak, representatives from UK Central arrive at Lindisfarne to tell the islanders about the shiny new city being created down south UK2 governer Verlander’s plan is simple: all independent communities are to be dissolved, their inhabitants to reside in approved colonies. Alas, those who relocate soon suspect that the promised of a bright tomorrow are nothing but smoke and mirrors, as great opportunities turn into broken dreams, and dangerous journeys provide the only hope of freedom.
Meanwhile, far away in the southern hemisphere, a new terror is gathering momentum…
Although this concludes the Project Renova trilogy, a fourth book will be published in early autumn 2018; it is set in the future and features descendents of Lottie and co. Patient Zero, a collection of short stories related to the series, is also currently available.
