I found Saving Cascadia a little to formulated and predictable to qualify it as a true thrills and chills read. The author is very good at the technical aspects and the setting and development of the story could have worked if he had been better at filling his story with believable characters. Instead I felt very much like I was reading the script of the disaster movie of the week.

Exciting, good characters, and a worst case scenario playing itself out.
