In this near-future science fiction, Healy hits close to home with his spins on addiction, invasive technology, corporate greed, and hacktivism. While some of the plot and science will be familiar to any who love the genre, Healy adds enough original elements and human insight to make this story fresh and interesting.
Grid Wraith is a fast, fun read with a geeky turn that doesn't overwhelm and that's accurate enough to keep technosavvy folks engaged. Looking forward to the next book.
While this has some story elements we’ve seen before, Healy puts them together in a fresh way. Any sci-fi writer or reader knows how hard it is to pull that off. The author had my attention from the opening paragraphs with an interesting character and an interesting voice that made this a page turner for me. (I am a critical reader.)
As for the story itself, the author’s synopsis tells you all you need to know, so I won’t repeat it here.
I highly recommend this novel and am eagerly awaiting the next installment in the series, but in the meantime, Mark Healy has gained a new fan, and I will definitely check out his other works.
This book takes off like a roller coaster from the beginning and the ride doesn't stop until you get to the end. Well, even at the end you just want more and I can't wait for the sequel.
This book has everything a reader wants, action, mystery and nail biting suspense. It also allows the reader a look into what the future could hold. I don't want to give any spoilers so I won't tell you what that is but let's just say it is something to ponder over.
This book is any easy read but be warned you might not want to put it down. I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves science fiction or even mystery.
I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I have read this book in its entirety and my opinion is my own.
In the Wraith series, Healy creates a new, likable main character, Vance, and surrounds him with a well fleshed-out group of supporting folk who interact throughout the story in very believable ways. There are some twists and turns as Vance learns more about himself and why he is a target, and there is plenty of suspense as the story rushes to completion. Enough threads are left undone, however, to make me look forward to the next book in this series by a sci-fi author who is getting better and better. Mark is not Peter Hamilton, yet, but a solid 4 of 5 in my thinking!
The lead character Vance Nolan is a hunted man for reasons he doesn’t understand. Healy as always racks up the tension and keeps his narrative flowing at. His characters in Grid Wraith are as fully rounded and believable as always and that’s what draws the reader in and keeps us hooked to the end.
This has a grittier feel and a slightly less frantic pace to his ‘Reach’ series of novels but you’re still rooting for the outsiders and forgotten people of society. It’s not quite a dystopian world but you get the impression that that’s just round the corner, which again mirrors much of what we see around us in our world today.
I highly recommend this new novel from a great new voice in Si-Fi and I’m eagerly awaiting the next one
