"Your true name is Red Rex. The baddest of badasses, an alpha warrior beyond compare..." Or, at least, that's what he's been told.
Eighteen-year-old Gaige Dupond has his life all mapped out. Lose his virginity to Emily. Get married. Become a pro soccer player and travel the world.
His father, a pure-bred Deltarc from another planet, whose race is growing extinct on planet Earth, has other plans - either confirm that he truly takes after his warrior father, and not his dearly departed empath mother, or snuff out his existence.
All plans go awry, however, when the dangerous red darkness in Gaige is awakened like a beam of hell flickering from his right eye, in a brutal ceremony. Pursued by a vicious Deltarc bounty hunter, Deltarc tracking hounds and his father's wicked minions, he loses his home, his life, all that he holds dear in pursuit of the truth.
In his quest to find his mother, victim to a corrupt cryopreservation project in outer space, and right the wrongs inflicted on him, he finds something far darker - his own sinister motivations and the need to feed on something other than human food. His only companion, a lab rat refugee named Sojourn, Gaige knows he'll never be loved - not in the way he'd always envisioned. Will he find the revenge he's seeking, or will he become an evil replica of his father? That's the last thing he'd ever wish on himself, but it may be his only option for survival.

Gaige’s father turns his entire life upside down by setting something loose inside Gaige and now he’s on the run trying to dodge his father’s trackers all while trying to control the red darkness inside before he turns evil like his father in this exciting sci-fi romance. A great plot.
The scenes are vivid and brilliantly detailed and the details capture the imagination and bring the story to life while the world draws the reader into the story. The characters are brilliant, engaging and grab your attention from the very beginning.
It's got everything from action to suspense and a romantic interest all packed into a great story.
Will he become his father? Can he accept himself for who he is now?

Calinda B has crafted a very intricate, well described story. I had no problem visualizing the worlds she created.
Gaige is a normal boy attending high school, playing soccer and in love with his girlfriend Emily. He suddenly faces a very violent coming of age at the hands of his father. While he searches for his mother with the help of his teacher, an older woman and an escaped lab rat, he learns to use his new powers. As he finally accepts himself for who he is now, all of his other problems work themselves out.
I absolutely loved this story. Kudos Calinda.

I tried multiple times to finish this book. I just couldn't do it. This audiobook was given to me for free through Audio Blast for my unbiased review.
"Loved reading this book but hearing it! WOW!"
Yes, the story is intriguing but when you add hearing the characters tell it. Amazing
I am not good at comparing books but this is a must listen to!
I liked the variety in character voices. S. Johnson really brought them to life for me.
At times I cringed, at times i smiled and laughed.
"This Story Delivers"
I don’t usually read many books from this genre, but I really enjoyed this one. The narration brought the story to life and held my interest throughout. The story was well thought out, complete and will keep you listening. I will be watching for this author in the future.
