Three groups of people are trapped on a stopped sky cable car, an overturned chartered bus, and at a rural resort working on a secret science project. While the snowstorm is not helping, the raging pandemic making huge swaths of the population both epically contagions and into modern zombies is worse. Will the trapped humans’ deaths be by weather, starvation, illness, or a more human threat? Or will somehow at least a few survive? Find out in The Drift…
The weather outside is the perfect accompaniment to this book…along with a warm cup of tea. Even though I knew the setting would make me feel even colder, I was looking forward to reading this book.
The author really makes you wonder how in the world this book will end any way but bleakly. Unfortunately, the characters are stick figures rather that people you can root for. Still, if you like atmospheric plot driven stories that make you think of what would you do if caught in an unusual situation, give The Drift a try. 3 stars.
Thanks to Ballantine Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
