Official Summary: “It is April 2065. The White House is now a mere memento from an age long gone, the Pentagon is now a daunting tower that watches over all, and the people have embraced the security with open arms. Enforcing this new world order is William Marconi, just one of an elite super soldier army of 144, 000. Part man and part machine, it is his sworn duty to annihilate any suspected threat to the new utopia. In a single heartbeat, however, William is faced with an opponent he has never known the likes of. Civilian and soldier alike become victims in a bloodbath that threatens to consume all he knows. In order to win, he’ll have to question his allies, his enemies, and himself.” – Goodreads
Review: The jumping about from present to past, did take a bit of getting used too. It was interesting to see their past though, it added more layers and tension to the story already being built. It was a very unique and different story being built as well which was a nice surprise. I was expecting something completely different to what I read which again was nice to see.
It quite bloody and lots of death but I wasn’t overly bothered this, it was done for a reason. It wasn’t there for the sake of death. It was there to add substance and texture to the characters. Their actions showed a lot about their character, a lot of what you learn about them is via their actions. Not from their emotional state or their words.
It also went a route I didn’t expect. Quite interested to see where it heads.
