Myke did it again! Another interesting and unique read unlike anything else I’ve read. One of my favorite things about Gemini Cell were the military missions, and while we didn’t have any this time, the lack of those were made up for by the uniqueness of the story. Dead bodies with multiple souls inside, working for and run by the government? Uh, cool.
This book is packed with so much action, SO MUCH, especially since it seems to take place over only a few days. Javelin Rain picks up right where Gemini Cell left off, with Jim rescuing Sarah and Patrick. Jim and Sarah really go through some ups and downs in this book and Jim really develops as a… being. I had a difficult time identifying with Jim and Sarah’s drive to protect Patrick because I don’t have kids and I don’t want them, so I spent some of the book trying to hurry those parts along. What I did like is that Jim’s love for Sarah is his driving force and that is more along the lines of what I like to read (despite using “baby” way too much for me). I also really enjoyed the little military dictionary in the back of the book. The author really makes military terms available to those who have no knowledge of that field. Also, LOTR references!
Javelin Rain will be available on March 29, 2016
I was given a copy of the book through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
