About the Author
In his twenties Patrick Rizio was on the road playing drums with several different bands. He started with rock and progressed into jazz. He worked for years as a journeyman cement mason, Local 502 business agent, and as a field representative for the Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Union. He loves travel, dogs, music, and tennis. After growing up reading authors like Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov, he now includes Brian Green, Michio Kaku, and Bill Nye among his favorites. Suffering from a lifelong addiction to science fiction and science books, he is a self-admitted science nerd. He feels strongly that science is not only humanity’s clearest path to a better future, but that it is inherently tied to our evolution as a species. LaCost: The Evolution of Jason is his first novel.

Mr. Rizio embraces the change, starting with Jason LaCost, and then with the absolute amazing evolution of Sarah. I lack for another word, besides evolution. I enjoyed how the author brought in the technical, but not so much to be overwhelming, and explaining in terms easier understood by those who aren't super-geniuses, using the tool of Jason explaining to Alison.
Although it does have hints of this book being Mr. Rizio's freshman novel, the pace kept me interested, wasn't overly complicated and jargon filled, and didn't seem off-the-charts SciFi. Enough speculation and cool stuff going on to keep a SciFi fan in tow, but not having you believe they are going from 0 to going to the Andromeda Galaxy in 30 pages. Although it definitely had thriller elements, I would not put this as the primary motive of the novel. Again...enough to interest a thriller fan, but not Jason Bourne or Robert Langdon level of saturation. Overall, a well-rounded novel that I thoroughly enjoyed, and one that made me think about our human condition.
It is my opinion that Mr. Rizio has a promising writing career, and I cannot wait for the second book, Collaboration.
The only thing I wish: I wish I could be taken along for one of Sarah's "journeys", seeing what she can see, expanding my own mind to see the beauty of the universe in the way she sees it.
