"Run Like Hell" is a science fiction/adventure story set in the not-too distant future. The United States has been broken up through a series of traumatic events and the story's main characters navigate their way through the various nation-states that have come to replace it. The author presents likable characters and provides a plausible reason for the book's main protagonist, Cass to be compelled to run for her life. But that's not what gave this book its charm for me. Instead, it was the matter-of-fact/this-is-every-day-for-us manner in which the technology and the environment are presented to the reader. That, and the social changes that have occurred. "Run" is a light, well written book, which moves as fast as its characters do, and will leave the reader wondering what will happen next. Intending to find out, I have already purchased the next work in the series, "A Deadly Quest (The Cassidy Chronicles)"
This is a very addictive story about 2 old friends Aiyana Cassidy (Cass) and Kendra Foster-Briggs (Ken) have had an on and off relationship since high school...then college and normal life separated them till they reunited. Cass stared a relationship with a handsome man Derek who she finally brought home to meet Ken and they all feel in love and were at the alter to get married when everything happened...they have to go into hiding to find out who is trying to kill them (Cass).
Awesome story...loved how most of the book was a conversation. Loved Ken and Cass! Liked how even when they were trying to be serious it was still funny i dont think i stopped laughing.
Set 100 years in the future, the book opens with the wedding of two female friends, Kendra (Ken) Foster-Briggs exotic actress and film producer, Aiyana Cassidy (Cass) half Irish/half Native American graduate from MIT with a Doctorate in Optical Engineering, and Derek James, a man of independent means. The only problem is instead of the Reverend marrying them he pulls a gun on them, forcing them to Run Like Hell.
Surviving a second attack the two ladies leave Derek behind and after working out Cass is the target, Ken arranges new identities and a safe place for them both to lay low until they can sort out the mess they find themselves in.
I won't give away any more of the plot but I will say this is a fast paced page-turner and worthy of the 5 stars I have given it.
I was given a copy as a result of a drawing and decided to review it even though it wasn't requested.
