Review: The Influencer by Alex Grass

This book has many components that converge to make an interesting story. A sorcerer is being driven in a limo while cell heads are running amuck throughout the city. The new vigilante may be the only one to save them, but if they can is still unknown. The Influencer by [Alex Grass]

This is the second book by Alex Grass that I have had the pleasure of reviewing. Like the last book, his writing is excellent and the story bizarre. I enjoy how he crafts the world and the characters within it. The story itself is strange, and I wasn’t sure why things were happening until closer to the end. But it all comes together!

I enjoyed the concept that social media and cell phones are more important in this society than (sorry, I can’t tell you that would be a spoiler).

The main problem with this book is that I didn’t know it was just the beginning. The book ends just as it is getting good, and I have to impatiently wait for the next installment. We are left with a cliffhanger making this book a bit of a letdown, but I still suggest you pick up a copy because the story, writing, and world are worth it.

Review: Hive by Jeremiah Ukponrefe

Hive takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where an alien force decimated the world. There are now pockets of humans trying to survive and hopefully, end the hive for good.

There are strong characters throughout the book and you see the relationships change among them. The main character really comes into his own by the end of the book. The writing is effective in transplanting the reader into the hive’s world. 

I enjoyed the story and the twists throughout. No spoilers here but there are exciting twists! 

There was quite a bit of description used, especially in regards to the weapons. The amount of description was tedious to read. The weaponry descriptors were strange and things I wouldn’t have known if not for video games. 

Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the series.
