This novel is about Lance Cutter. Born from a biological experiment, neither he nor his mother were meant to live. But they did live, until a tragic plane crash later in his life.
This novel reads like it is 2 separate stories, in 3 parts. The 1st 3rd parts would be about the genetic creation and government hunt for Lance Cutter.
The 2nd part is the meatiest part (and in my opinion the best part of the novel) in which Cutter is an arson investigator who is investigating the very unlikely incidents happening in which pets, and the people holding them, are spontaneously combating all over the place!
Other than when it comes in handy for him to see in the dark, the genetically altered part of Lance Cutter plays no part in the main plot of this story, but I was very much drawn into it.
Then the crime is solved, the bad guy is captured, and part 3 of the story starts. After all these years of being thought dead, the government finds Lance Cutter over one article in a newspaper once he solved his *exploding poodle problem.
In the 3rd act another player is introduced which took a turn I really didn't see coming. I would have loved to have seen that character introduced earlier, and to somehow be woven more into Cutter's adult life all along, instead of just poofing in during the climax.
I can only rate this 4 stars though. While I found the stories entertaining, the overuse of simile in the writing made the story itself almost laughable occasionally. I also feel like the 3 parts could have been much better tied together somehow. How did Cutter and his mother survive and escape the aftermath of his birthday explosion? If his mother knew enough to run and hide after his birth, why would she have gone back to the government looking for help to begin with? If the government knew so much about his special abilities why would they ever have considered him dead? They would have kept looking forever, or until they found a body, whatever came firs. Questions like those kept me from giving it better marks.
*There were no actual exploding poodles in the book...I made that part up.
My first impression after being chosen to read this book for a review, was about a humanoid figure putting sand in the eyes of people to make them sleep. This book does not go in that direction! This is about a German experiment to make a super soldier that could adjust their vision based on the lighting. Also to be able to adjust their body temperature to the surroundings to survive and adapt better. It was an experiment with human and lizard.
If a sci-fi thriller book with great action through out the story. This is where you need to be then. I would like to thank Ebookpro and all the affiliates responsible for sending me this book to read and review. It was a very good book!
