Jason however does not see the synths the same way the rest of the world does and began looking into the murder anyway. That led to where the story picks up now shortly after the end of the first in which Jason has aligned himself with the synths to fight for their rights to begin to force the world to treat them as human and not property.
This series is definitely one that is best to read in order as the world was set in the first book and I think a reader jumping in would be lost on what is happening now. The first book was a bit of a scifi/fantasy mixed with a detective mystery but now the main character is a wanted man by siding with the synths and helping their rebellion. The books bring in the question of just what makes a human and questions the way society is treating the synthetics as property when it is obvious to the main character that they have feelings and emotions the same as any human would and now there is even more proof.
At the end of the first while I enjoyed the world the author had created and the ideas behind it I thought the main character was a bit stiff, that really hasn’t changed. I think the fact these are shorter reads it leaves a bit of character building out but still a decent job for as fast paced as they are. This one felt a bit like what it is though to me in that it is the middle book so I’ve lowered my rating a bit with wanting more to happen but it has set up the next in line so I’ll be interested in seeing where the series heads next in the fight.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
Synths are nothing more than slaves or toys that humans can buy for their own personal use. It is believed that Synths feel no pain, emotionally or physically. They are used as babysitters, maids, prostitution or for whatever reason the buyer feels fit. Synths cannot cause humans any harm but a human can do as they please with a Synth.
Detective or former Detective Jason Campbell is one of the few humans who know that Synths do have feelings. Jason with the help a Synth named Silas are about to open up a few eyes and hearts hopefully. The world sees the Synths as nothing more than machines until they are given the truth which they are having trouble to believe without the backing of the governments. Jason and Silas have set out to prove to the world that Synths are human but first they must get the governments to back them and tell the world themselves the truth.
I love dystopian and science fiction novels and The New Lyons Sequence is the bomb as they say. I love the world of the Synths but I would love to know more about the Synths and how they were “born” and conditioned and how they felt with being someone’s personal toy or slave. Although I have loved seeing things from Jason’s point of view I would love to see things from a Synths point of view and get a look into their world so to speak.
Jason is a wonderful character and person I really loved his sense of humor and his sarcasm. I also loved the fight scenes they were so in-depth. I loved how the author gave so much info on each strike or hit. And like how to catch someone off guard by doing the opposite of what they expect and to watch someone’s shoulders to see which direction they are going to come at you next. I have always wanted to learn karate but never did so I did the next best thing I married someone who had. I have always loved watching movies or tv shows with Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li and, Jackie Chan. I loved the movie Birth of a Dragon about Bruce Lee. I would love to see SINthetic and SINdicate both on the big screen.
SINdicate was a very fast read and just like with the first book SINthetic I didn’t want to put it down but I had to numerous times my advice, never start a good book during a weekend holiday.
I recommend SINdicate to all dystopia and science fiction fans who love to read about artificial life with futuristic qualities as well as some awesome fighting scenes with some nice round kicks, hand strikes, elbow strikes and, arm strikes thrown in. SINdicate is filled with action around every corner.
