Synopsis:

“A teenage girl awakens to find herself trapped in a coffin. She has no idea who she is, where she is, or how she got there. Fighting her way free brings little relief—she discovers only a room lined with caskets and a handful of equally mystified survivors. Beyond their room lies a corridor filled with bones and dust, but no people . . . and no answers.

She knows only one thing about herself—her name, M. Savage, which was engraved on the foot of her coffin—yet she finds herself in charge. She is not the biggest among them, or the boldest, but for some reason the others trust her. Now, if they’re to have any chance, she must get them to trust one another.

Whatever the truth is, she is determined to find it and confront it. If she has to lead, she will make sure they survive. Maybe there’s a way out, a rational explanation, and a fighting chance against the dangers to come. Or maybe a reality they cannot comprehend lies just beyond the next turn.”

Alive by Scott Sigler

This is one trippy book. By turns downright frightening, the plight of these teens will keep a reader interested. Unfortunately, it takes an odd turn towards the end that changes the entire story. What should make the story more fascinating ends up making it just another science fiction novel. By the end, readers will no longer care about the survivors and will instead struggle to figure out the convoluted story behind their current plight. It is not worth expending reading time on this odd story.
