Lightening strikes, the Company, Lamia half-woman, half-serpent beast of giant-sized magnitude along with three young adults ripped from the lives they knew, born with the “G” factor are now destined to be the warriors to save mankind from destruction. All I can say is WOW! what an amazing sci-fi thriller that never stops. Powerfully, exciting this apocalyptic novel is more than your average end-time read. I was captivated by the twist of ominous proportions mixed with Greek mythology. Creatively written with imaginative detail Didi transforms her readers to a believable time and place. She gives us wonderful characters such as the softness of nurse Judy contrasted against the sharpness of nurse Brock, the aptitude to give us three young adults where we can whole-heartily feel their fears, pain and anguish. I loved the connection of fast friendship developed out of desperation between the three young adults: Jack, Amber and Freddy. Compellingly entertaining, thought-provoking “what ifs” leading to a wanting have-to move onto book two. Don’t miss this exciting adventure!
Young Jackson Bellony is scarcely a man when a rain of lightning heralds the end of the world. The Company is just a mysterious group that drops care packages into his village and harnesses the technology that others lack.
Soon an enigmatic drifter wanders into Jackson’s village and warns that The Company isn’t to be trusted. But before any decisions can be made, Jackson is taken away by The Company, after being told he has what it takes to be a super-warrior.
The enemy, they say, is the Lamia: a creature that’s half woman, half snake. The apocalyptic storm killed much of mankind but awoke the Lamia, which now endangers those who weren’t killed by the century of destruction. It’s a monster, and The Company needs Jackson and his superior comrades to defeat it.
But, is Jackson really the one who can save the world?
