With Quincy J Allen's Chemical Burn, that leap of faith landed me directly into a fantastic haystack of a book. Right from the start, the writing leaps out as a snappy, upbeat take on what is usually a down and dour genre. The main character, even in just the first few chapters, becomes someone we can instantly relate to. Smart, funny, with a laid-back attitude and a voraciously protective nature, Justin Case is the type of protagonist so many people try to write, and so few get correct.
So many times, novels along this vein can get lost in the need for bad guys to go splat that the action passages feel tacked-on. However, Chemical Burn slowly cranks up the heat, each action piece worked seamlessly into the plot, always and forever advancing the story.
When everything crescendos, and the plot comes to its head, I was turning pages at a feverish pace, desperate to know what came next. So very few books that I pick up have that ability. I cannot recommend this work enough. To any who enjoy good intrigue, fantastically written characters, and wonderfully paced action, I cannot recommend this book to you enough. Take it with you everywhere, Justin Case.
But it was good. Really good. Part hard-boiled detective fiction, part alien pew-pew sci-fi - both of which are tired, but his mash-up of the two just really gelled for me. His prose, and the plot, and honestly some of his character details and ideas about technology take overdone premises and weave them into something fresh and entertaining; I ate it up.
I'm writing this review (admittedly late) mostly because I eagerly await the sequel. Nicely played, QJA.

I really enjoyed this book. The audio was done well, and even had a similar voice to James Marshters from Dresden Files.Read more
