This book is such a page turner that I was able to workout (elliptical) without looking at the clock, which is my personal gauge for rating books. A good book makes me forget I'm working out and that is what No Darker Fate was able to do.
Bottom line, No Darker Fate is a fun read for anyone who likes Sci-Fi. The book does a good job of building characters and definitely appears to be a setup for a series. I hope so, and will be on the look-out. I liked the book enough that I'm now reading another John Corwin novel, The Next Thing I Knew - review to follow.
"One year to the day after dying, Lucas decided to go home."
Of course I had to find out more.
The main character in this book is Lucas. When we first meet Lucas, he is reminiscing on his past, haunted by the death of his family a year before. Very soon into the story he gets a picture message on his phone, which turns his life upside-down. Lucas finds himself the unwilling pawn in a very dangerous and scary game. At first he thinks he's dreaming, then going crazy, and finally he realizes that an unknown force is controlling him, forcing him to kill people. Lucas is remorseful of these killings but unable to stop them. In his fight for control of himself, he is taken deeper into a strange new world of superpowers, translocation, murder and mayhem.
A couple of mentionable supporting characters in this book are Alexia, an FBI agent who is thrown into Lucas's X-Files quality world and soon discovers secrets of her own; and Tolle, a young girl who is being manipulated and also used as a pawn, although a more willing one than Lucas, ultimately seeing the error of her ways and wanting to try to fix things.
This story was humorous, and the characters' thought process made me laugh out loud a couple of times. Though sometimes a bit confusing at times with all of the Scion politics, everything was straightened out by the end of the book. This would be a great first installment of a series. I loved the character of Lucas and would love to see more of him!
