Shocked, Barry Hibbard ‘s eyes were drawn to the pieces of his Ming Dynasty vase strewn across the floor. He’d known better than to leave it on the pedestal after the last close call. Instead of putting it in a safer spot, he had become more particular as to who he allowed over. This guest, however, was uninvited.
Her features reminded him of a porcelain doll, but, unlike most porcelain dolls, this one had a shotgun.
“Where’s the Rex battery?” she demanded.
He had no idea what a Rex battery was, or that his whole world would change from that moment. Dragged from his quiet world into a quest to find the battery before it could be destroyed, it was his chance to save the planet. Well, maybe.
I received a copy of this book via Audiobook Boom for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. There was no compensation made for this review.
Okay… so, this book was interesting. It is a quick read, has action, and a fairly interesting mystery going on. However, I am on the fence with my feelings about it.
Let’s start with the narration and writing style. Well, the narrator chosen does a good job. I was pulled into the story and I could visualize what was going on. This goes along with the writing style. It pulls you in and I could visualize what was happening very well. The story itself wasn’t bad.
Then there are the characters.
Yeah, they I didn’t care for. The main lead seemed to be self-centered and a bit childish. Everything he did either had to do with money or the female lead. He didn’t really have much in motivation beyond that. The female lead had more going for her but you really don’t see much in her personality.
All in all, I would consider this book quick read to pass the time. I would try the author again though.
Final Rating: 3/5
