Summary

"Go into the Red Zone. Go to Street Freaks," his father directs Ashton Collins before the vid feed goes suddenly silent. The Red Zone is the dangerous heart of mega-city Los Angeles; it is a world Ash is forbidden from and one he knows little about. But if he can find Street Freaks, the strangest of aid awaits - human and barely human alike. As Ash is hunted, he must unravel the mystery left behind by his father and discover his role in this new world.

Critic reviews

"[Narrator Simon] Vance sinks his teeth into this futuristic, action-punk, dystopian story. His reading is perfectly timed, shifting seamlessly between emotion and narrative, street racing and corporate espionage. Vance's flawless performance keeps listeners riveted by the bulls-eye painted on Ash." (AudioFile)

Some different and refreshing

Indeed something completely different from Terry Brooks and I loved it! The voice and performance of Simon made it ever more special. I couldnt put my phone down.

Terry has done it again!

Fantastic. Real characters, perfect pacing, excellent plot. I was hoping for a sequel before I was finished. (Hint, hint)

Terry Brooks translates as Incredible

The Landover series was my first Terry Brooks experience, so I knew his writting was excellent. Street Freaks was a whole new facet to Brooks' incredible genius. The story is futuristic sci-fi, but Brooks does it better. Gripping and intellegent, I could not stop listening.

Terry Brooks does it again!

Once again this great story teller takes us to a world that’s totally believable , yet completely different from our own. The characters are cast offs from that society, but so well written, that they become our temporary family. My only regret is that this appears to be a stand alone book, and not part of a series. Thank you, Terry, for taking me away from the troubles of my everyday world.

Another Brooks Masterpiece

Taking a break from the genre he has dominated for 40 years...Terry has spun a fascinating tale of intrigue set in a dystopian future. From the very first minutes, the story grabs you and drags you into a high speed chase that never ends as his protagonist struggles to untangle the mystery of his fathers desperate last message.

Good book by an amazing author. It was fun to go in a different direction with Mr. Brooks.

It's okay

Maybe I'm to the point where teenage protagonists don't interest me much. Also, the story had a plot that is well-used - psychological population control through pharmacology. It was an okay listen, but I was anticipating something better. As to the narration, I could listen with rapt attention to Simon Vance reading a school lunch menu.

Good but not my favorite Terry Brooks book

I normally love Terry Brooks stuff!!! This one was a good story but not as epic as a Shannara book or as fun as a Landover book. It was just kind of ok I guess.

Unfinished ending

The book was alright, I would have expected something a little more from my favorite author. If this is the beginning of a new series it would be better because there are a lot of loose ends
