More About the Author

I grew up in the California bay area until my family moved to the Pacific Northwest when I was in high school. I went to college there, then spent the next twenty years in San Diego. Now I live and write in southeastern Washington state. My college background is in advertising art, so I dabble in the digital arts. I'm a big fan of genealogy, antiques, nutrition, and all things 3D animation.

I asked for and received an advanced reader's copy of this book for reviewing purposes.

Having read (and loved) the first Xenofreak Nation book (XBestia), which introduces the story, I was anxious to get my hands on book two. It does not disappoint!

The author takes us right into the action from the end of Book One. Scott and Bryn find themselves the targets of diabolical attacks from a jealous rival--Padme, and these aren't physical attacks. They're far worse. She has found a way to lock into the nanoneurons that were imbedded in Scott and Bryn's brains when they were given their xeno alterations. In this way, she has the power to attack them through their own minds.

To protect Bryn, who receives the worst of it, the Xenofreak Intelligence Agency sends her deep underground, where, hopefully, the signals can't reach. That's the plan, anyway. Scott is not allowed to go with her--the Agency sends another man as her guardian: Jason Alton.

From this point the reader is taken on a rollercoaster ride of mind-control, attempted murder, intrigue, and desperate struggles to achieve power, along with the enduring romance between Bryn and Scott. Jason adds his own brand of sexy, and there are other new characters to flesh out the tale. As a germophobe myself, I identified quickly with Mia Padilla, who has oddly enough specialized in the field of contagious diseases.

Mia plays a huge part in the story, because non-xeno's are also being attacked--with a virulent strain of typhoid.

Bryn, Scott, Jason, and Mia are caught up in a war between Scott's old gang, the XBestias, and their powerful rivals, the Mad Eyes, commanded by Maddy, a dramatic, dynamic figure, to say the least.

I received a galley copy for review purposes. I subsequently purchased a copy for another family member.

This is the second book in Melissa Conway's Xenofreak Nation series and is set in a future where undergoing animal-skin grafting is as common as tattooing is today. The difference is: anyone who opts for a xenograft is considered a freak and a social outcast.
From the first novel, we follow the stories of Bryn--an unwilling xenofreak--and undercover Agent Scott Harding of the Xenofreak Intelligence Agency. Scott received his xenograft as a means to successfully infiltrate the xenofreak gang known as the XBestias.
The story begins as both Bryn and Scott endure painful effects brought on by nanoneurons unknowingly implanted in their brains during the initial grafting procedure. Someone is using the devices to control their pleasure and pain receptors, with devastating results.
In addition to battling against the debilitating effects of the implants, a mysterious illness surfaces that only affects non-xenofreaks. All Scott wants to do is find the person who's controlling their minds and put a stop to the attacks, but he's pulled off protection detail in order to help Dr. Mia Padilla -- a self-admitted germophobe, yet ironically an infectious disease specialist -- learn more about the deadly disease spreading across the city.
While Scott helps Mia, Bryn is put under the protection of undercover XIA agent Jason Alton, who takes her to the only place she might be safe from the painful signals--to the underground lair of the Mad Eye gang--the main rivals of the XBestias. Once underground, Bryn and Jason interact with the Mad Eye gang's leader, Maddy, an eccentric, yet formidable, transgender woman.

I love these books. They are just the right mix of action, sci-fi, and romance. The author weaves a believable world of the future. The sci-fi is just enough to keep you immersed in the world but not too far off to be hoaky. I love the characters. They are believable and real. The addition of some new characters were perfect. For most of it the main characters, Bryn & Scott, were apart but their stories intertwined and kept me eagerly awaiting their reunion.
The story is told from the point of view of both Bryn and Scott and it is fun to se how their actions and intents are interpreted by each other.
This book introduced you to the Xbeastia gangs rivals, the Mad Eyes. Both gangs handle their members with different techniques and the leader of the Mad eyes, Maddie, will surely be a character to watch.
Padme returns as both sympathetic and frustrating. You feel for her but want her to stop. I think she is the most interesting of all the cast.
Can't wait for the third book!

This is an awesome series and I thought the second was even better than the first! Conway introduces fresh, new characters in this novel but keeps developing the old characters story lines as well. I like how all of the characters react with distinct personalities. Also, the way she paints a scene isn't suffocating with detail but still allows the reader to visualize the setting.

Honestly, I could see both of these books as movies. I tell my friends who like YA novels that cheesy title aside these are a must read. They've captured my attention and now I'm stuck waiting for the next one!
