Project Apex by Michael Bray
I received a free copy of Project Apex in return for an honest review.
Usually when I read the blurb of a book and see the words virus, government or anything along the lines of armed forces, I will move right on much like I do when I see zombies mentioned. However, I was offered a copy of Project Apex for review and as I am a fan of the authors previous works I thought I would give it a chance. Would Michael Bray capture my attention or would I zone out like I usually do when reading similar material?
Project Apex feels like a big story, there is so much to it but it doesn't feel that way while reading. There are a lot of characters, places and different aspects to the main story, yet they all flow alongside each other intersecting flawlessly without any confusion or time spent trying to keep the characters, places and story-lines straight. The writing style makes it easy to follow and a pleasure to read.
I was pleasantly surprised by this one, like I said it's not my usual cup of tea but I became totally absorbed in the story. The pacing was perfect, gradually increasing as the story progressed and it had me eager to keep reading just one more page. I found the character of Joshua intriguing, a lot of what he claims makes sense but does that justify his means? I have a bit of a love/hate thing going on with this character, he means well initially but just how far is he prepared to go to share his gift with the world?
I think it's safe to say that Michael Bray captured my attention, not once did I find myself zoning out. In fact I'm itching to find out what happens next and looking forwards to the next installment.
