This is fantastic book. As well as being beautifully written it is exceptionally well conceived, never loses pace and nicely avoids predictability.
When I see an independently published book I am often somewhat apprehensive about the quality of the editing and proofing. By the end of the first chapter I had no such qualms with this book. It read smoothly and easily from beginning to end and had me hooked and unable to put it down.
This book is one reason why we need more independent authors to publish their books. I hate to think that this little gem of a book could have been still languishing in an agent's in-tray as then I would not have had the chance to read it.
I did think the token romance element early on could have been left for a later book in the series as the novel did not need it to enhance an already fantastic plot-line.
The sci-fi world was carefully thought-out and built in careful and intricate layers which lent a feeling of reality to the novel. The understanding of mob mentality and the masses following blindly without true understanding is something I see readily reflected in the real world in many situations. The author clearly greatly understands mass hysteria and was able to clearly convey the devastation wreaked by mass prejudice.

One of the important factors for me was that each character had a very unique voice. The supporting cast were as strong as the main characters. I instinctively adored both Danyael and Galahad, their stories both so sad and intertwined in the most tragic of ways. Although billed as "perfection" Galahad was human enough to be intimately endearing.
Zara is another kettle of fish. I feel I may warm to her as the series progresses, at the moment I like her as a literary character, she is interesting and adds a much-needed shade of grey to proceedings.

I really enjoyed this novel! I don't read a lot of scifi and the cover looked VERY much that genre but I liked Jade's voice on her blog after discovering her on Twitter and wanted to read her book. The action is pretty non stop from the first page, which is brilliant. Though a lot of characters are introduced quite quickly in the first few chapters and subsequently throughout the entire book (some of whom could easily be the main protagonists in their own novels, such as Miriya!), their 'voices' make it easy to get to know them quickly and acre about them. My one bug-bear about the book and it's a totally personal one, which is why I still felt it merited the 5 star rating, were the main characters ( or who I consider to be the main ones). Danayel and Zara. I want Danayel to grow some balls fast, get angry and stop feeling sorry for himself and being a freakin' doormat. I know he's meant to be flawed and deeply traumatised, but I did want to slap him several times. Zara, while being a super kick ass heroine, is a complete bitch in the first book. I do not like the woman. I much prefer Miriya. I think Jade Kerrion has done a great job as an author to be able to elicit such strong responses from me as a reader! I'm hoping both Danayel and Zara change in the sequels, which I will be reading!

This book is one that could be easily become reality in the not even too distance future and it freaked me out, in a good way though. Even the far fetched plot lines were brought in a way that made them believable.
The characters were all more than well developed and even the general, unimportant, minor ones had traits not uncommon to mankind; i.e. The whole population is a reflection of our current state of mind, and behaviour patterns. Even the mutants are what you expect, and do not stretch the suspension of disbelief. They are all fleshed out fully and alive. I rooted for them, all of them, even the scary ones made me feel sorry for them. It were the humans, bar a few exceptions, that were despicable.
Plot? Great! I'm not going to give anything away but I will say that the conspiracy lovers will have a ball reading this book.
My one and only gripe is that it's the first in a series and I loath serialised novels, but on the other hand I'm glad that it doesn't end with this book because there's more to this story than just told in part one. I can imagine the whole complex woven tapestry with all its twists and turns couldn't fit into one book. By the by, it ends in a perfect cliff-hanger and I can't wait to read book two. Luckily it is available for download and I don't have to wait any longer than it takes to press `buy now'.

Not the kind of book I would normally read but I will continue reading this series. This had my attention from the first page. It was fast paced and very descriptive. Some of the characters have some kind of supernatural power and in some places I could almost feel the electricity and power in the room. I did not want to put this down, had great difficulty leaving it and couldn't wait to get back to it to see what happened next. A few twists and turns that I didn't see coming. Well worth a read, would recommended it and I have already to my friends and family.

Book Review: Perfection Unleashed by Jade Kerrion
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

Writing Style - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
A very good narrative work, accompanied by good structure and well thought-out series of sub-plots which drive the reader nicely along.
I did feel the dialogue was occasionally a little light with respect to the intensity of the events, and also there were one or two instances where the jump from one element of the story to the next felt a little jumpy, as if we had perhaps missed some minor detail.
Otherwise this serves as an excellent opening part to the series.

Character Development - 3.5/5.0 (Good)
There are two very good, very strong characters in Danyael and Galahad. The former being an Alpha Mutant with complex healing powers and a myriad of emotional turmoils which could be potentially lethal to anyone around him, the latter a `rescued' genetic experiment and the `Perfection' of the title.
Of the others, although key to the story, they all seem to play secondary roles to these two, developing far less proportionately as the plots unwind.

Descriptive - 3.5/5.0 (Good)
Again I felt there were minor elements of the descriptive that lacked a little definition, though very often this was made up for with some powerful scene-building and very good tension.
For me, the occasional lack of fighting in the `fighting' scenes, was a little annoying. We got to know that people needed healing, and that they were being healed of horrific and probably fatal wounds, but the author kept the focus away from this.

Language & Grammar - 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
If there were any errors in the editing, I didn't notice them.
