Edge of Darkness (Alpha Core Saga Book 1) Kindle Edition
In 2065, corporate sponsored governments jockey for supremacy in the biotechnical arena. Bullets and missiles take a back seat to cyber-enhanced soldiers and pulse weapons. In this extreme environment, only the most hardened body and mind can survive.
Calder McKenna was a failed experiment in the military's push for power. Now a special agent for the metro task force, he lives day by day trying to forget the ones that were lost... the ones that he could have saved.
When technology and humanity collide, Calder is forced to make desperate decisions, but how do you destroy the monster without becoming one yourself?
"I'm a sci-fi junkie and Edge of Darkness, book one in the Alpha Core Saga has it all: complex characters, a great villain, space travel, and love!" - Izzy Matthews, Author of Deep Currents
"Well written, exciting, good vs. bad sci-fi. Evil corporation experimenting on humans with experimental mind controlling tech. Great characters with serious issues. Friendships, action, and espionage. Can't wait for the next one." - Bookbub Review
"Amazing! The author has found a flow that sucks you into the story and makes you want to read more. Very descriptive, action packed with an amazing story line. If you like science fictions, actions and adventure with a hint of romance this is the story for you. Just pick up the book. You will not regret it." - Goodreads Review
About the Author
My love for sci-fi goes way back to my childhood. I mean, who didn’t love movies like Tron and Terminator when they were a kid? Or great oldies like WarGames? I grew up in the advent of technology and rode the wave of the dot com lifestyle in my 20s. It was a wonderful time to be alive, to see where tech could go. Being involved in the field as a database admin and then later as a hardware tech and web designer, I had my fingers in all of it and I loved what it was all about.
In college, I was a true cyberpunk and gloried over works by Gibson and Dick. I reveled in the hackers manifesto like a warrior and actually prayed for a world like BladeRunner. They were very cool, hyper-energized times we were in and it gave me scores of ideas and hands-on experience to dump into my work.
Now, years later, I am still amazed at what technology and science have continued to churn out. Dystopian worlds are not far off, and with my techie past, I have more than enough ammo in my brainpan to fill many more books. And many more shelves.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.
I loved the chemistry between the characters.

There was no hesitation when it came time to pick up the next book in the series, and I'm happy to say that what I've read of it so far is excellent and of increasing subtlety. I'm as excited to follow Romano's authorial evolution as I am to follow Calder and Sierra's exploits.
As other have stated, the story moves at quick, and has great elements of a Science Fiction thriller, and Action Adventure. Some elements can be disturbing for some - Some character actions are frustrating (but, if you look at everyday life and people - well, we all do things that can be considered frustrating to others, right?) but the book ends with you wanting the next in the series NOW!
And, that, is what makes for good writing/good story - if you want to stay in that world, follow these people into their next adventure.
Filled with lots of cool weaponry, badassery and cinematic fight scenes. I also got a bit of a Strike Back vibe from the banter at times. ;) The action doesn't quit on the last page, either. I'm not normally a fan of cliffhanger endings, but no one is actually dangling over the edge here. More, we're being set up for the next adventure.
What I'd like to see in the next installment: More Gage and Sierra coming to the rescue of one of the guys. :)
