Action adventure galore in a science fiction thriller

  • Oct 31, 2012
Rating:
+3
Advertised as written in the style of comic book superheroes (POW), the novel also provides an alternate history of the U.S. and it's major enemies: the Soviet Union, Greater Germany and the Nationalist Republic of China.

Alix Nico is a nineteen-year-old rising star with ExOps, a covert organization that protects the U.S. from its enemies.

She's given an assignment to find out what happened to her father who was captured a number of years ago and was presumed dead.

This is a cat and mouse adventure where Alix travels to various places in the world, meets the enemies and does battle with them in spectacular fashion.

The story is well written and intricately plotted. Alix is a modern bionic woman who likes noting more than to kick butt. With the scientific advances to her body, she is able to dodge bullets and punch holes in cars.

The fans of science fiction will greatly enjoy this novel. Others will need to suspend their view of reality and be ready to go on an adventure.
