    1. An alternate earth, seen through 'the breach' created deep in the ground of the Appalachians. In the Coldbrook facility, decades of experimentation finally pays off. The Eradicator provides an instant death to anything that enters the breach, maintaining safety protocols. A bipedal form approaches the breach and passes through unscathed. After all, it can't kill something that's already dead. As alarms blare and the facility goes into lockdown to prevent anything from escaping to the surface, Vi [...]


    2. Reviewed on Adventures in Scifi PublishingSeeing my enthusiasm for this book’s kickbutt ending, a friend teased me: “you and your zombies.” Yes, I still love zombies, but the more I read them the more I need the story and characters to stand out and excel. Coldbrook by Tim Lebbon suits every tastebud of my zombie fettish, even sprinkling on a little bit of multi-dimensional warfare into its apocalyptic plate. Do you remember when the TV show Fringe expanded its horizon by opening up the mu [...]


    3. 2.5 StarsColdbrook should have been an easy five star book for me After all it is written by my favorite author of the last year, Tim Lebbon. It is a post apocalyptic zombie thriller which I always adore. Finally it is about the multiverse, which also happens to be my real world obsession. Unfortunately, all these amazing parts did not add up to be a great whole.As for being a horror novel, this is the weakest Lebbon fiction that I have read. There is little here to scare you or to gross you out [...]


    4. THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT HAS CHANGED FOREVERTHE REASON IS COLDBROOKThe facility lay deep in Appalachian Mountains, a secret laboratory called Coldbrook. Its scientists had achieved the impossible: a gateway to a new world. Theirs was to be the greatest discovery in the history of mankind, but they had no idea what they were unleashing.With their breakthrough comes disease and now it is out and ravaging the human population. The only hope is a cure and the only cure and the only cure is genetic re [...]


    5. I've read a few zombie books, they frighten me in the same sort of way that roller-coasters do - I enjoy it but shake like a fool for twenty minutes afterwards and have the occasional issue with walking to the toilet on my own in the night for a couple of days.Coldbrook blew them all out of the water.As far as zombies go, Lebbon created the scariest ones I have encountered. Which is impressive because until now I would have replied to a statement like that with 'but surely a zombie is just a zom [...]


    6. This one started out strong and finished weak. By the time I was around 80% done with the book it sucked. I was expecting more from this book.


    7. Wow. I read this in a white heat over two days, as ravenous to know what was going to happen next as the undead hordes streaming through these pages were eager to bite their hapless victims The premise is prosaic: in a research laboratory under the Appalachian Mountains, known as Coldbrook, scientists have created a quantum portal to another world, another earth. Then one day what appears to be a human being shambles through from the other side. Except it is not human. Cue the swift descent of c [...]


    8. The author bio in the back mentions that the author has been lately working on screenplays for TV and film. It shows. Coldbrook seems like it was written to be adapted into a blockbuster film. Lebbon used to write original stories with complex character psychology and emotional depth. What we have here is just another zombie novel. Bringing quantum physics into it (barely) and calling them "furies" doesn't make it different. I wish him success with his current endeavors but I miss the old Tim.


    9. The first half got me hooked, then it sort of went South. I'm not too keen on SF which I felt the novel was heading toward. But I did persevere only to realize as well that the characters did little for me. No one to really root for. Strong enough narrative but the overall enjoyment a disappointment.


    10. I'm kind of over zombies. I think it's only fair to start this review with that caveat. Aside from The Walking Dead -- the gold standard, so to speak -- I've made a deliberate decision to avoid all tales of reanimation moving forward. Like vampires before them, I'm simply over zombies. However, Coldbrook was sneaky. The title, cover art and description don't scream "zombie story." As a result, I found myself deeply entrenched in the creative sci-fi/horror plot before I realized I had been sucker [...]


    11. THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT HAS CHANGED FOREVER THE REASON IS COLDBROOKIn a hidden research facility, deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a team of scientists achieve the impossible. They create a portal to an alternate Earth. Just as they are celebrating their success, however, something comes through the portal and unleashes a plague of the undead that threaten to wipe out the human race. Only one woman seems to be immune, but there are millions of walking corpses between her and the team of scient [...]


    12. 3.5 starsVery bizarre, sci-fi(esque) concept which worked on four out of five levels. I enjoyed the initial premise of the breach between multiple worlds where a crossover contagion occurred. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the development of their stories. The action scenes were intense and nail biting. The writing style is crisp, fast paced, descriptive and believable. But, and this is just how I felt while reading, the worlds beyond "the breach" and the concept of the "annihilators" r [...]


    13. Coldbrook is a seamless blend of science fiction and horror that for the most part works brilliantly (I had a couple of niggles, but nothing that detracted too much from the story). A group of scientists lift the lid on a Pandora’s box when they open a gateway to a parallel universe, but what comes through is not what they are expecting. The characters in the novel are brought to life on the page, and they become people you root for and care about as they try to cope with the end of the world [...]

    15. Overall, I wasn't a big fan of Coldbrook. I first want to say that I thought the language was excellent. There were a lot of interesting descriptive words and the language flowed easily. Tim painted a good picture and I was impressed. Unfortunately, that was all I really liked about the book. The plotline was pretty boring in my opinion. The story with Jonah was confusing and uninteresting. The multiverse was a cool idea, but when I realized it was basically our universe in the future I l [...]


    16. Coldbrook is one of the finest Zombie horror novels I have ever read! A zombie book with a distinct difference to the regular zombie formula, Coldbrook adds a science-fiction element that accelerates the story in a totally and unexpected way.The story centres on Coldbrook a hidden underground research base deep in the Appalachian mountains in the United States. Scientists working on establishing a link to a twin Earth using a 'breach' a way of transporting people from one Earth to another, this [...]


    17. More than I expected! Though this is billed as a 'terror' novel, I found it to be more sci-fi and thriller, which I prefer. There are plenty of gross out moments (you know, people who should clearly be dead walking around and biting folks), but overall this is a story about survival. I love zombie crap and this is a new take for me. Spoiler--scientists in our world suspect we are but one universe in an infinite number of universes. They 'breach' another world and - voila!- a zombie shuffles thro [...]


    18. You know those horror books that you can tell are written by white guys? This is one of these books. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, you'll probably find this to be an entirely bearable read. I envy your ignorance, not even kidding.) Seriously, the women are written awfully and the men are almost all pretty gross. Go ahead and get eaten by zombies, I don't even care.The multiverse idea was pretty cool, but it didn't seem like he tried all that hard with it. My favorite quote is on the [...]


    19. Mr. Lebbon is one of my "go to" authors. Meaning that when no other book catches my fancy, then I can usually rely on him to give me something worth reading. This book was not bad, but it was nowhere near good. The story was fine, but the people.ah, the people. I couldn't connect with anyone. It's hard to really enjoy a story if there is no connections. Also, that ending wasn't really an ending at all. Argh! Ah well, onto the next book.


    20. I feel like I only finished this book because I felt like the concept interested me enough that I should have enjoyed it. The character development was poor and never once developed beyond surface level, many phrases and statements used were confusing and often contradictory and every chapter ended in a ridiculously cliched line. Probably my biggest issue with the book is the confusion that comes from paragraphs containing the observations and thoughts of multiple characters.


    21. It's like reading the script of a B-movie from the SyFy Channel. It reads fast, has a few unexpected twists and turns, and the characters are the usual ones to be found in a low-grade movie. That being said, I liked it. Don't read this expecting something new and ground-breaking in horror. Read it simply to be entertained.


    22. I saw this book at the local library and thought I would give it a go. I found the story interesting at first but felt the undead genre has been done many times in many media. Overall, I have been put of reading other works of the authors and probably would not recommend.


    23. This is a multi-verse sci-fi zombie apocalypse with enough human drama for a Lifetime movie. Lebbon has combined science, religion, and manifest destiny to create a jaw dropping villain. This is a must read if you like original works of zombie.



    24. Best zombie/infected book I've read. Well worth your time if you're a fan of horror and/or zombies. Tim Lebbon rarely disappoints. Coldbrook is no exception. Can't wait for the sequel.



    25. I am thoroughly happy to have found this book in a used book store, it was a great read! I can only rate it a 4/5 stars because the story line was really strange. From the description on the back they describe that this government-run facility has made a gateway to another world and a virus has come through and infected their world; then the zombie apocalypse. When I got past the first 50 pages or so, after the zombie outbreak started wreaking havoc, the way the NEW zombies acted seemed reminisc [...]


    26. I'd watch the movie version after a few strong drinks, I guess?Unfortunately, Lebbon's writing made for a terrible book. Don't get me wrong, I loved his writing in 'The Silence' but this was the most laborious action/thriller ever. It took forever to get through despite the constant action because I really didn't care about the characters at all. I'm disappointed too, I really enjoyed Lebbon's character development and creative twists in 'The Silence' so I had high hopes for his take on post-apo [...]


    27. I really liked this - a much more science fiction take on the zombie genre. I wish there had been a sequel, since the end felt a bit rushed and I would like to see more of that explained. (view spoiler)[ since every action creates an infinite chain of events and an infinite number of earths, there would be earths where Jonah didn't succeed, so there would still be "evil earths" out there trying to purge the multiverse of impure earths. That's hard to say, but if you read the story you know what [...]
