Joe Branch has been working for the One World Alliance (OWA) since the outbreak of the deadly Sembe` virus. Under the guise of saving humanity, the OWA has become the masters of the populace. Once Joe discovers the truth, he is determined to do what he can to break their hold, and in the process becomes the most wanted man alive.
Bird’s first installment of the Breaking the Beast series, The Redemption of Joe Branch could easily be read as a standalone novel. It is told in the first person by Joe. After he realizes his employer is a coldhearted beast, he sets out to take this message to others. Are they willing to listen to his story, and most importantly help him try and defeat the beast?
The characters are well developed, and the pace is rather exciting. Nothing is predictable. It’s a hard book to put down. So, grab a cup of coffee and sit back for the ride.
5 out of 5 stars.
