It's hard to write a review for each book; these are not standalone novels and I definitely recommend reading every single one.
This series is half deliciously kinky porn and half unexpectedly great plot. Set in the futuristic Juxtapose City, the story follows a group of characters trying to prevent a war between psypaths (an emerging class of humans with varied mental powers) and regular humans. Don't expect epic world spanning sci-fi literature, but do expect a well thought out microcosm on how humans of different backgrounds plan and react while on the brink of war. And also how humans, individually or as a group, can and will subjugate each other through the use of drugs, fear, violence, poverty, police brutality etc. It's all fiction but sadly not really.
Despite that I can't wait to see where the story goes, with hope that our heroes will prevail.
You also begin to discover that Black is kind of stupid sometimes. Starr comments periodically on how surprised he is that someone so young has a job like his, and it begins to become apparent that Black's youth does indeed work against him in some ways. This thread will continue through the next book, as you begin to learn more about his life before JC2 and how far he has already come from his roots.
Which is funny in retrospect. That's how Calyx seems to feel, too.
Calyx and Black are starting to grow into the characters they later become, and their evolving relationship is a huge part of that. However, the vicious attacks in the first book goes to another level of evil. Again, Starr learns more about his love interest and leader through more unimaginable trauma.
I'm still hoping it will all have been worthwhile.
