Genre: SCI FI/Apocolyptic
This book is the first one to a triology. It left me speechless but not enough to keep me from writing this review. My initial reaction to this story after I read it in its entirety: Wow! Excellent! Awesome! Ooooh!
The diddy on the scoop:
Vincent Black a/k/a Night Viper, is a super-human-soldier dude who’s battling the creepy Zodiac in a post apocalyptic world to regain its freedom. In his fight, he finds other survivors (everyday humans) to support him. There also a few surprises in the people he meets. Some are rogues. Some are geeks. Some have deviant behavior. Some of these peeps will disappoint you and the others draw you into their fight and the bonds they’re creating. Great writing, Mike!
Zodiac is the dude who caused what’s called a Flash Storm wiping out America and the rest of the world in one day. Talk about freaky. This guy also seeks out survivors so he can lobotomize them making them into his own personal war or slave zombies. But I have to admit there were times when I thought a brain-eating-zombie was going to come out of nowhere. I was sitting on the edge of my seat sincerely contemplating nail-biting again. Once again, great writing, Mike! You evoked emotion and fear in me. You also made me a nervous wreck i.e., the nail biting.
Mike’s characters were all well-rounded. Zodiac, on the other hand, was just pure evil incarnate. The character said so himself.
His story is full of action. He also did a great job with computer lingo. I’m in awe of this.
This book also seemed to serve as a messenger, that we should all beware of the abuse of power within the realms of government. In fact, my favorite line, Night Viper stated more than once, was ‘I’m what happens when the government messes with things they shouldn’t’. Love that line!
I highly recommend this read but I must warn you. There is violence. You can find it on Amazon. The Kindle version is .99 and the paperback is $17.50.
