The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. This interesting and compelling work, as I said, had my attention from the start and there are twists and turns in this page turner that will take the reader on a very intriguing and compelling journey! Also, the writing style is uncomplicated which makes for an enjoyable read.
It's one of those stories that come along once in awhile that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I'm giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!
I'd highly recommend this read to all fans of the Science Fiction & Fantasy genre. It wouldn't surprise me if I saw this on the Silver Screen. This Sci-Fi adventure is creative, imaginative and ingenious!
I'll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Jamie A. Waters in the future!
I found the story to be very well written and engaging. If the author didn't do it themselves; whomever edited and proofread this book needs to be applauded. The arrangement of each paragraph flowed well and each chapter was very easy to read. What pleased me most about the authors writing style, was that it didn't feel stilted in language and it wasn't absurd or awkward to read. Unfortunately, I find a lot more bad writing from seasoned authors. I read the other reviews of this book and say that I must agree that this does remind me of the Hunger Games a bit; although I've never read the book and only seen the movie.
I liked the lead character Kayla. She reminded me of a 5 foot 2 inch stick of street-smart, ruin-rat dynamite, ready to explode at a moments notice. Her saucy and inquisitive demeanor in the story-line filled her out and kept the character interesting. Kayla having a back-story built in to the plot really helped as well. Her man Carl, made a great underdog at her side battling the corrupt and evil Omnilab. The other characters such as Seara and even Varidian also seemed well thought out and developed too. In my opinion, the whole story was very well put together, believable and vividly written from start to finish.
I'm really amazed that this work seems to be this authors first book here on Amazon. Bravo! This author deserves five stars all the way for a fantastic debut release. I would recommend this book to all adults that like action packed science fiction!
What lacked for me, however, was a real sense that this was a science-fiction story. There are many features mentioned (sensors, UV gear, com-links, etc.) but few were described with enough detail to give clues as to what they looked like or how they worked. For some people that might not be a big thing, but I like to feel immersed in a story, especially when it is happening in a place invented by the author. Also, I had thought the story was a science-fiction novel with romance in it and soon realized it was a romance with science-fiction in it. Again, for some that might not be an issue, but it affected my perception of what I was getting into and my overall enjoyment of the story. That said, the intimate scenes were well-written and quite hot.
I would have liked to see more character development from some of the secondary characters. Veridian, I think, could have been stronger, and some of the others as well. Still, the cast functions well as a support for Kayla and, by the end, everyone does what they are expected to do. I did find Kayla too intense for me, sometimes overly reactive and downright obnoxious, but she did have her quiet, sensitive moments, which helped make her likable.
It’ll be interesting to see what comes next, as book 1 raises many intriguing questions to be answered in book 2.
