Solitude by Dean M. Cole

A few months ago I started reading a book after the Hubby suggested I read. I often end up reading books after recommendations from the Hubby because he gets through a lot more books than me. I've read so many that I wouldn't ordinarily do because he tells me he thinks I'll like it, like The Martian. I wouldn't have read that if the Hubby hadn't said it was good. And that's what happened with Solitude by Dean M. Cole.

About Solitude

Solitude By Dean M. Cole | Read the book blurb about Solitude.

A mysterious wave of light erupts from the supercollider and wipes humanity from the planet, leaving only two people in its wake - one on the surface and the other stranded on the ISS, neither aware of the other. After months of desperate isolation, Earth's last man discovers he's not the only one after all. The last woman is stranded alone aboard the International Space Station and barely alive - so begins a race against time. If you like action-packed novels, you'll love the electrifying action in this apocalyptic thriller.

Army aviator Vaughn Singleton is a highly intelligent, lazy man, but when he emerges from a NASA vacuum chamber, he soon discovers he is the last human left on Earth, a position for which he is ill equipped. 

Stranded alone on the ISS, Commander Angela Brown watches a wave of light sweep across the planet. Over the next weeks and months, Angela struggles to contact someone on the surface as she fights to survive aboard a deteriorating space station.

Then, from orbit above Central Europe, Angela glimpses the dark underpinnings of humanity's demise. It appears something went horribly wrong with a physics experiment at the supercollider in Geneva, Switzerland. As a theoretical physicist, Angela might be able to unravel and maybe even reverse the events that led to the apocalypse...if she could only get there.

Can Vaughn find a path to space and back? Can Angela - the only person with clues to the mystery of humanity's disappearance - survive until he does?

My thoughts on Solitude by Dean M. Cole

I really enjoyed reading Solitude. It was interesting, engaging, and exciting. It's always good when a story grabs you with intrigue and that's what this story did. I was eager to find out what had caused the light beam, I wanted to know if Angela Brown and Vaughn Singleton would survive. I went through Solitude in record time because I enjoyed reading so much. 

The writer creates a world where everything is in jeopardy and you're along for the ride. You root for the characters in the hope they'll save the world. I liked reading about the International Space Station and the peril facing Angela Brown but I also enjoyed reading about Vaughn's struggles before, and after, he realises there's someone else alive too. 

One to add to your list if you enjoy space themed stories.
