Review - All Fall Down by Louise Voss & Mark Edwards

Wow! What a thrilling read!

Dr Kate Maddox is a high profile virologist and when a number of her colleagues are murdered in a terrorist attack, she is called upon by a secret agent to go over to the US and help them to find a cure for this pandemic.  Torn between staying to be with her son, and possibly saving the world, she makes her choice and decides that she’ll send her son for a long holiday with his father in another part of the States to keep him protected from the virus that she has spent a lifetime trying to cure.  

Only they hadn’t told her the whole truth. While it was agreed originally for her partner to go with her, when they arrived in the US, they were separated and he decided to split from the secret agent and what they had in store for him to do a little investigating of his own about how his brother, and Kate’s former partner had been killed years earlier. 

Meanwhile a group of tough, killer “ladies” (and I say the word ladies in the loosest sense of the word!) discovered that it was their destiny and that they were the chosen ones who got to decide that the world needed to be refreshed of it's inhabitants and they were hell bent on spreading this virus in the US then onto to the rest of the world.  But first they wanted Kate to become one of them. 

Can Kate find a cure for this disease before it wipes out the people that she loves dearly as well as the rest of the world?  I’m not going to tell you the answer now am I!

This book got my heart thumping, my mind racing, and put me in a state where I was totally oblivious to the outside world while reading this book. It was thoroughly enjoyable, full of suspense and thrills it completely absorbed me. It was exciting, exhilarating, and my heart pounded most of the way through the book. There were times when I felt myself holding my breath and times where I wanted to shout at the main characters about what was going to happen and wanted to help them find a way out.  It took a while for me to come back down to earth and realise that they couldn't actually hear me if I did!

Brilliantly written, with amazing characters, and an unbelievable yet believable plot, very gruesome in parts, yet moving in others, there were so many different qualities in this book which made it a totally superb read.

Thoroughly entertaining, and totally energetic, it certainly grabbed my attention and my imagination and you really had no idea until the very end how it was going to turn out.   To tell the truth when I finished reading it, I felt completely exhausted as if I'd gone through every single one of the will ordeals myself and had to go and have a lie down!   

Mark Edwards and Louise Voss met after Louise saw Mark on a TV documentary about aspiring writers, and a writing partnership was born.

Their first two thrillers, Killing Cupid and Catch Your Death, were huge hits when the pair self-published them online, becoming the first UK indie authors to reach No. 1 in both the Amazon Kindle and Amazon Fiction charts. All Fall Down is their third novel.

Hi Kim The Book Worm,

I really loved your post from January 16, 2013 ( Review - All Fall Down by Louise Voss & Mark Edwards ). This specific kind of article that you wrote really helped me think outside of the box and come up with some interesting topics to write about on my own site!

As I’m sure you agree, both of us understand that coming up with interesting articles/news can be tough. That said, I have some interesting news for you. We just wrote few blog posts that your site’s visitors might find useful, such asHow Women Can Beat Online Slots Weddings: The Gamble of a Lifetime.

I believe that the topics covered in these blog posts have a lot of added value and as such would engage your readership.

While I have the ability to produce content for anyone, I specifically chose to contact you because I like the quality of the content you produce, and I think it’s a good fit.
