Ballistic begins right where Killshot left off. Michaels doesn't give a lot of review, so if it's been awhile since you finished Killshot, it might be a good idea to reread it or at least skim over the basics. Seems like with the first book covering the big event that there wouldn't be too many surprises left for the group this time. Wrong! (Scritters!) Just when you think that she's given the main group enough obstacles and tested their strength and resolve to the breaking point, they're pushed even further. Liv is still as tough and magnificent as ever, taking the lead and handling the cursed life she now lives with incredible determination and resolve. We're given part of the story from Beans perspective, and Liv's little brother is just as gutsy, endearing, and as much of a natural leader as she is.
I loved this entire book, from the amazing artwork on the front cover to the final scene that can easily cause an ugly cry. Michaels has created a striking second novel that is an absolute must read! I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
Book Two picks up right after book one and Liv and her band of friends are still on the search for her little brother. This cast of friends is by far the most loyal, smart, strong and quick-witted group of characters I have ever come across in a story. All their personalities just fit with each other. Each character feeds into the other creating this hive of awesomeness. Liv still kicks major behind in this book and Zander is right beside her.
Aria's story is so intelligently woven that you find yourself either reading super slow to make sure you soak up every detail or reading pages over to make sure you didn't miss out on some all important nugget of literary gold. We are introduced to new characters in this book and everyone gets put through the ringer in this one. You want a book with action, Aria gives you so much action that you may end up suffering from high levels of adrenaline and anxiety while reading. There were definitely times when I was so engulfed in a scene that my mouth was hanging wide open.
I can't wait to see what book 3 has in store for us readers and what the characters will have to go through to continue to survive. So much change is happening that I can just feel something epic is on the horizon for this series! SOOOO GOOOD!
Another wild ride from Aria Michaels is in store for readers of the Icarus series. Continuing their harrowing journey following the events in Killshot, Liv, Zan, Ty, Ry, and the rest are thrown one nasty slime-covered curve ball after another in this emotional second installment.
Though there are characters which exhibit some growth, I still can't stand Christa, but it makes sense to have some people survive that aren't necessarily your favorites, because isn't that rather realistic?
A good balance of fast paced and wasteland wandering, stopping now and then to pause for you to really soak in the details of the devastation, Ballistic is one of those books that reminds you that you can love a book even if it makes you cry. In fact, maybe even more so because of it.
Furthermore, there are still a number of matters by which I remain perplexed, but I'm hoping those questions will be answered in the book yet to come.
In the end I greatly enjoyed my time spent in this particular collection of pages. I loved being so wrapped up in the words of another that I completely lost sight of myself and became immersed in the reality of the characters, something which happened with both books in the Icarus series, but more often in Ballistic due to the tension ratcheting up a few more notches. The stakes are higher than ever and I just can't wait for the next book after that ending.
4 scritter-slaying stars and many thanks to the author and tour host for the review opportunity!
For Ballistic I bought the kindle version, now am saving for the physical book, it was that good.
This book continues the storyline from the last book, with added chapters from Beans POV. Along the way more off the GRS virus and it's mysteries a re revealed, which helps to define the differences between the main characters. Is everyone infected, or not? Hmmmmm
What new challenges will Liv and company face as they struggle to survive in a terrifyingly hot and hostile new world? What terrible secrets are being swept under the carpet by the government? Will Liv succeed in her quest to save her little brother Beans? No spoilers from this girl. You'll have to read it to find out!
