Limitless Publishing


After an epidemic spreads through the country, Brooklyn Harper’s high school years come to an abrupt end.

Implanted in a rural camp, Brooklyn and her friends are cut off from their families and the outside world. Each day is filled with combat training to assure their safety against the crazed, belligerent, and deadly— those infected with a mysterious virus.

If the world couldn’t get any crazier, a letter ups the insanity...

After being assured day after day that the world outside their little camp had been compromised, Brooklyn’s cabin-mate, Dawson Winters, finds a letter that turns everything they’d known upside down. There is a world outside the trees that surrounds their camp, and the virus they all feared seems non-existent.

Determined to see it herself, Brooklyn plots with others to attempt an escape...

On the outside, Brooklyn finds the world is as normal as ever. But when they are attacked in the city, they dispose of their attackers far more efficiently than any normal human.. Is there more to Brooklyn and her friends then just being highly trained?

As their exploration continues, the group is faced with impossible feats. Betrayal, love, death, and a powerful sense ofcamaraderie lead Brooklyn and her friends to fight for their life, their freedom, and most of all, each other.

My Review:

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Brooklyn and Gabriel both lived in the same town went to the same school but were not friends. Oh they would speak to one another if and when they would meet in the hall. But other than that they never talked to one another. So when the virus broke out they rescued and taken when other around their age. The people saved were mostly either high school or college age. They were taken to a camp and were trained on how to take care of their selves. They were taught to fight in hand to hand combat and how to shoot guns, pistols and probably other weapons as well.

They were told that after the break out that they were the only ones left and everyone else; family, friends or whoever were all gone. They were kept in something like an encampment facility or like an orphanage kind of place. They all slept in one big room with bunkbeds with the girls and guys together. And there was more than one cabin if that is what you would like to call it. Gabriel and Brooklyn became fast friends and stuck by each other always. They made friends with some of the other people that slept in the same building as they did especially with some of the guys.

When they found out that everything they had been led to believe may have been a lie. Gabriel, Brooklyn along with their friends and some of the others who lived in some of the other cabins all decide to leave the compound. They wanted to know the truth and if what they thought were right or not. They had to know what was going on outside the walls of their home. They also wanted and needed to know if their families were alive or not. Did they have a home to return to or not? Was everyone they ever knew gone? What will they find waiting for them on the outside?

When they finally manage to escape what they find on the outside is not what they expected at all. They are being chased by some very bad people and they don’t know why. They have not been on the outside in many years so they haven’t done anything wrong that they know of. How could they when they have been living in a compound for a long time. All they know at the moment is that they have to get away from these bad people no matter what the cost. If they want to live that is and they must find out why these bad people are hunting them.

The Omen Operation was not what I expected it to be when I read the summary but it was one of the best books that I have read in a very long time. I loved how Brooklyn was so strong and wanted to take care of all of her friends and keep them safe even if it could mean that she lost her own life but all of the characters were pretty much the same way. Brooklyn was very strong and did what she needed to do when the time came in any given situation. But at the same time there were times when she needed a shoulder to cry on and she had one. Porter was a strong person too although you may not have recognized that he was. All of the characters were so close and had close relationships with that in the beginning I had hard time trying to figure out who liked who but it didn’t take me long to get it all straightened out.

The main characters were always together most of the time. They trained together all day every day, they ate together and they also slept in the same room but I think I have already mentioned this. I would recommend Omen Operation to anyone who loves a good story. Yes I do love this genre and am very much stuck on it at the moment but there is more to this story than just the world that they live in which was well created by the author. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. To find out what happens to all of the characters. What will happen to them? What will they do? I need the next book now please.
