“ The characters were strong and well developed and the world they lived in was vividly described. ” – Sapphyria
In a world where parasites create new human races, Elei leads a peaceful life — until a mysterious attack on his boss sends him fleeing with a bullet in his side. Pursued for a secret he does not possess and with the fleet at his heels, he has but one thought: to stay alive. His pursuers aren’t inclined to sit down and talk, although that’s not the end of Elei’s troubles. The two powerful parasites inhabiting his body, at a balance until now, choose this moment to bring him down, leaving Elei with no choice but to trust in people he hardly knows. It won’t be long before he realizes he must find out this deadly secret – a secret that might change the fate of his world and everything he has ever known – or die trying.

An original and engaging read. A young man with the weight of the world inside him, struggling to understand and survive in a harsh, well-drawn world of cruelty and inhuman conditions, Elei will steal your heart, as will Kalaes, a guy who maintains his humanity just when you think things will never get better for Elei. The pace is relentless, the settings so fresh I know I’d stand in line to watch Rex Rising on a screen. I can’t wait for book two to release, and I highly recommend this novel. – Arlie Ann
