Product Description

Amazon Review

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Deeply dark and twisted, this is a book that keeps you in suspense until the very end. References to a mutant gene that the government want to hide and the people who do have this gene makes the coldest people empathise with the characters. There are moments of jealousy, anger, love and even bits that make you laugh. The fact that this book talks about humans as if they are less than evryone else makes you think...which is always good in todays society! Definately worth the read and i cant wait to read the sequels!

hex is a relly good sci-fi thriller and is really worth reading. And if you think that all sci-fi books are about star trek then you are wrong. The book is about two kids 1 of whom is a hex. If you are a hex then you carry a mutant gene which makes you near enough a living computer. The two kids are Raven and Wraith(Raven being the Hex)and they are looking for their sister Rachel, who is also a hex but was taken away by the CPS (the police).The government think Hexes are a threat and they eliminate them.
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 found this book an excellent read. It was both fast moving and full of detail. Rhiannon Lassiter has managed to keep the reader in plenty of suspense throughout the trilogy, and the finale is wonderful with a startling but satisfying twist at the end. Raven, the main character, is a Hex- a blend of the human mind and computer created by the government. The characters are interesting and well developed. Raven is a well developed character who you feel for, but mysterious enough to not be boring. I felt that this book was well worth reading but advise readers who read this review to buy all three books in the trilogy and read them in order because otherwise they will become confused. I recommend this book particularly to readers who enjoy fantasy and sci-fi and who are aged roughly 12+.

Format: Paperback
Hex is a new age sci-fi novel with a difference. Raven is a hex. A human with brain-computer access. Hexes are so dangerous they have been exterminated by law for the last 250 years. Her and her brother wraith are on a search for their younger sister Rachel, who they discover has been shown to be a hex and taken to a research facility to be brutally experimented on. With the help of Kez, a 13 year old ganger, and some mercenaries they plan to rescue Rachel. But they get more than they bargain for. This book has a vison of the future of genetic experiments and the harm they can cause. It is also a bit like the holocaust of WWII. It's a really good read and I know I didn't want to put it down.

I only have the memories of reading this in my mid teens, but they are fond memories that have stuck with me. Something drew me to this book in my school library - perhaps it was the bold covers; actually it might have been a friend's recommendation.

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.

i dont normaly lissen to other peoples views on books because the book is not what i expext after that
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

I loved Hex when i first read started reading it i couldn't put it down i carried it though the whole trilogy. The story line is unique and entertaining, a book you won't be able to put down.
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".

It is the twenty fourth century. Three siblings live in the gangland of Lomdon. Wraith fits his name, as he looks like a ghost. He is fairly normal, except he worries constantly about sisters. Raven is a completely confident, extremely selfish, manic-depressive fifteen year old. Their sister Rachel has been missing for four years. It is a hard, almost impossible task. But it so happens that for the people with the Hex gene, it is possible to enter any computer system with the greatest of ease. The task is hard, but Raven can do it. She's a Hex...
