Rhiannon Lassiter received rave reviews for her debut novel Hex, the first of three futuristic thrillers, and deservedly so. It was imaginative, energetic and bolstered by a rare "keenness of spirit" that made up for any loss of narrative pace through writing inexperience. Hex: Ghosts follows on from the sequel Hex: Shadows and completes the trilogy with style, delivering a satisfying conclusion to a substantial tale with almost as much verve as was evident in the original.
Hexes are individuals born with the mutant Hex gene that allows them to interface, hands-free, with computer technology and the awesome, all-encompassing World Wide Web. A clever skill--but in the year 2371 it's an illegal one.
Here, the queen of all such rebels is the black-haired, black-clad Raven who, together with her swelling group of family, friends and Hex buddies, occupies a terrorist fortress amidst the scariest and darkest London city levels. They are fastidiously preparing for attack. On one hand, they plan to deliver the Hex population to power and overthrow the European Federation Government. On the other, they must defend themselves against a final assault that could mean the end of their kind for ever. The key to success of both aims lies in Italy where a disk containing vital Hex historical data lies in the fragile hands of two young sibling Hexes who do not realise their perilous position.
Hex: Ghosts is a meaty story with a large cast of characters that together grapple with no less a subject than the future of the world. It's ambitious and highly readable, and disappointing only in that the book is too short. (Age 11 and over) --John McLay --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book has characters that are nothing alike and the story is very crefully planned.
My favourite character is Raven because she lives dangerously and doesn't care what happens as long as she reaches her goal, unlike her brother Wraith who is always trying to help people.
I'll never forget that this was written by a seventeen year old - it had such maturity! I don't read a lot of science fiction novels, but I found this book extremely cosy and exhilirating, and the next two books in the series are just as good, if not better.
Rhiannon Lassiter deserves more success as an author. It warms my heart that there are quite a few other reviews here. A lot of people have read this, but more should.
this trillogy was some of the best reading i have had and i read a lot of fantasy books any thing about the super natural and this must be one of the best about people who can travel along the net in there mind i would love that true hackers
athough this book has an anoying ending as the others were about rebellion and winning agensed the odds i think if what i have said has not intressed you noting will in this book but it is worth reading
and to think she is still only a teen (the writer) is one of the books wonderful qualitys such a grate book at a young age you can only hope for more years and more books of equal quality
The characters are perfect, they completely get you involved in the book with them. rhiannon lassiter gives just enough background information to make you know them, care about them.
I have still not found a better character than Raven in any other book that i've read. I would suggest this book to anyone at top marks and it also gets the title of "My favourite book".
