*Thank you to the publisher and Net Galley for the e-arc in exchange for an honest review*
This is not a book I would normally pick up, however the publisher reached out to me and I thought I would try something outside of my reading comfort zone. It wasn’t exactly my cup of tea so I am rating based on what I would rate it if this is the type of genre I normally read. If that makes sense.
Likes The writing was really well done and easy to follow. When the action picked up, it was non-stop. I also liked the plot. It was really scary how accurate it could be! A cyber threat is really scary especially with the fact that almost everything runs through the system now. I really liked reading about the HIVE and how Alex gave it an Audrey Hepburn voice. What HIVE could do, a very real seeming virtual reality, was awesome! I liked that the author and creator came up with a plot so vast and intelligent that it seemed so real.
Dislikes It was really slow until a little over 50% of the way through. Then it was really interesting. I also didn’t connect with any of the characters. I just didn’t feel for them.
Final Thoughts I did like this overall. It ended on a cliff hanger! I really want this to be a movie. I think I would like it even more!
