The story of a world gone pretty wrong not too far in the future and some pretty disturbing genetic engineering, among other things. There is a quarantined city called Rotville in Arizona, that holds people who are essentially violent mutants (think zombies). If that isn't bad enough, in the middle of this city, there is closed off research facility called Colosseo, also a supermax prison, where genetic research is being done to create an enhanced human super soldier. The director of these experiments has chosen Dylan to be the prototype super soldier but everything pretty much goes wrong from then on as other subjects of experiments escape, his employees decide not to follow orders, and the lives of two young kids are at stake. Instead of becoming a weapon of war, Dylan becomes more of a hero and quite possibly those with impure motives are given what they deserve in the end.
This was a highly original and fast-paced read that I enjoyed from start to finish. There was a lot to take in as far as the story line went and I appreciated the complexity. I found the writing and the dialogue to be very fluid and the action scenes to be quite vivid. Would definitely recommend this one.
Sound bad enough? Within the city is a prison that holds hundreds of inmates which are being used as live test subjects for the wardens insane experiments. Those inside are the worst of the worst to be in a city full of mutants as part of their guards so on one is going to really end up seeing who is missing or... changed. The wardens goal is to make enhanced humans for his own private army. Dylan is selected for this program and he is the lead who we are following throughout the tale. A "psychologically disturbed inmate" is set to become a killing machine though instead of being mindless things go awry. A group of the other test subjects break out and the researcher in charge of him reprograms him to have free will, and to save her son.
Can Dylan break out, stop the mutants, save her son, and escape capture? There is only one way to find out and that's by grabbing a copy and reading through it! Not set so far into the future that the technology used isn't feasible and while some of the genetic manipulation used might be a bit much for fifteen years from now while having also just dealt with a zombie-esque outbreak, you'll be able to easily suspend your disbelief from the non-stop action that carries you through. Some great writing and character changes will keep you wanting more!
A group of crazed human mutants break out of Colosseo and head to a nearby city. During the panic, the neuro-technician who had worked on Dylan makes a sudden decision and changes course. She inserts her own memory program instead and teaches independence rather than submissiveness. Dylan becomes a modern-day samurai, ready to take on the mutants, the warren, and whomever else gets in his way.
This is a fun, action-packed read from beginning to end. It’s original, fast-paced and kept me turning the pages from beginning to end. The writing is vivid, the characters are complex, and the plot is an unpredictable, twisting, highly original account of a future with zombies and greedy humans. Written for younger readers, I thought it was engaging and sharp. I’ll definitely look for more from this author.
