About the book:
That’s all it takes.
A new kind of war has begun.
Pak Han-Yong’s day is here. An elite hacker with Unit 101 of the North Korean military, he’s labored for years to launch Project Sonnimne: a series of deadly viruses set to cripple Imperialist infrastructure.
And with one tap of his keyboard, the rewards are immediate.
Brendan Chogan isn’t a hero. He’s an out-of-work parking enforcement officer and one-time collegiate boxer trying to support his wife and children. But now there’s a foreign enemy on the shore, a blackout that extends across America, and an unseen menace targeting him.
Brendan will do whatever it takes to keep his family safe.
In the wake of the cyber attacks, electrical grids fail, satellites crash to earth, and the destinies of nine strangers collide.
Strangers whose survival depends upon each other’s skills and courage.
I had seen All Systems Down on Goodreads and thought it sounded like an interesting read, and I wasn’t disappointed!
Centering around a blackout across America, the reader meets the main characters just as all of the systems fail due to a virus that has bee put in there by a master hacker as part of Project Sonnimne.
All Systems Down asks the question what would you do if everything around you changed for the worst essentially. Could you survive? How would you survive if everything went dark?
All Systems Down was definitely an intriguing read. We got glimpses from those who created the virus, along with following the characters that were impacted at the time of the event.
Something about this book says post-apocalyptic fiction, because survival becomes the key, but there is also a lot more in play here. The author has created an engaging plot, and I found myself rooting for certain characters, while wishing bad things on others. You’ll have to read it for yourself to see why though.
All Systems Down is a techno thriller, with a dystopian feel to it once the blackout hits, Easy to follow with some divisive characters, it is great escapism.
Recommended for sure!
