This was such a good story. I had a little idea what it was about, but couldn't put it down once I started. It's fast-paced and brilliantly crafted. M..Show More »y favourite thing about it were the characters; there are many, but they are all so believable and unique. I loved the Blackbirds series, but, for me, this topped them (although Miriam Black will always be my top anti-hero). I haven't checked, but I really, really hope there will be more books to go with this one. Please???
Chuck Wendig has struck entomological gold here. Lock in and listen to this excellent scifi thriller that will make you want to pay more attention to ..Show More »those little critters around you. Wendig has a unique writing style in that the story is first person perspective written in third person language. Xe Sands does an excellent job reading the story and I'm now going to look for more by her thanks to discovering her voice and style with this book. I'll admit I have a large biased for stories with genetics and you throw in insects and you've got me hooked. BUT if you get too much science wrong I'll not enjoy the story. So when I say this was fun from beginning to end, know that the science presented is researched enough to make it plausible and enjoyable. As for the story, well Wendig is really good at drawing you in and taking you on a ride. I won't give away anything, because I think it's best to jump in a discover it on your own. I will say if you have read Zer0es you'll enjoy the cameos, but this book can stand all on its own for anyone who hasn't read anything by the author before.
