This is the first instalment of what looks like a good franchise starring Byron Tibor. Without giving too much away, he is =a seasoned specialist who goes into hostile areas to complete missions, however, he has implants in his head, fingers and a skeletal armour. These make him able to see how people react (fear, anger etc), and has faster reflexes and sharper to give him the edge. After an event in one mission (start of the book) he begins to lose control and suffers from stress and starts seeing things that are not there and goes on the run. From there it is a cat and mouse between Byron and the authorities.
I liked the way at the beginning of chapters, it tells you who is speaking, so you hear the story from their point of view, so it drags you in deeper and deeper as you read. I could not put it down, even reading until late in the early hours until my kindles power died on me. A fascinating story and hopefully not the last we will hear from Byron.
My only criticism is that at times I felt some chapters were a little rushed, however that is just my opinion. It did not stop me from enjoying the read - it could have been double the length and I would have stayed up all night reading it - it was that good.
Makes you think, what sort of people are their? In today's world.
Byron Tibor has spent years in Combat and serving his country. The first few chapters of this book kind of took my breath away. We fall straight into a combat situation where Byron is working as a lone operator. The sheer energy and exhilaration I went through when reading this reminded me of that feeling you get when you watch a really intense film! I was amazed (and I don’t mean that to sound disrespectful), a woman that doesn’t read this type of book and I just HAD to carry on reading.
When I did carry on reading I began to get a little confused. Had Sean Black made a major error in the storyline? Why didn’t it make any sense? Well, I now realise that’s the whole point in the beginning; you need to question it as you go along. This whole book centres on the US Government and their new programme which involves inserting an implant into their best soldiers to create a ‘guilt free and enhanced’ soldier. I know that some people will be shaking their heads at this description. Believe me, I am normally one of them so I totally get that. However, this story is one of those that will get your brain ticking. I’m certainly not somebody who believes in far fetched ideas; however there is a real ‘Big Brother’ syndrome with this book.Read more ›
Nobody is safe with this writer.
The events after the first chapter got me hooked, perhaps it had something to do with one of the main characters having the same name as my daughter, but I loved the ride. From the mountains of Afghanistan, to the deserts in Nevada and the conclusion in New York City, one ride that won't be forgotten.
Byron Tibor, finds himself on a journey into the unknown when he realizes that past events and current threats are all mixed up in his mind due to a secret mission plotted by some people within the highest ranks of the US government. Memories and current events all brought together by a new kind implant, meant to make better soldiers. Great action sequences, a brutal chase and violent action with enough humanity to make it real, it was all in this book. I loved the Human 2.0 idea and love to see more of this.
The human interaction between the characters was awesome and the events unfolded in a great way. This book showed me that this author proved again that he can easily stand between the great thriller writers such as Robert Ludlum, Brad Thor, Matthew Reilly, Joseph Finder, Vince Flynn and Tom Clancy. After his Ryan Lock novels, it is time for another hero to travel with, I do hope that this is only the first book in what will become a great series.
Byron Tibor is a Special Forces veteran who has seen too many horrors and wants to get back to normality but the nightmares and ghosts haunt him every day.
He becomes part of a special programme that turns him from man to a sapien-plus......an enhanced killing machine with just enough humanity left to keep him level.
He has to battle for survival and for his future after leaving the project with the scientists, Police and a cold-blooded killer trying to track him down.
This is, hopefully, the first of a series about Byron. He's not a likeable character and his morals are sometimes questionable but the premise is fascinating. I really enjoyed this and look forward to book two
