I REPEAT - DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. I am a long time devotee of the science fiction genre so of course I am readily able to suspend disbelief for the sake of a well-told story, but I can assure you, this is not one of them. This is the most poorly written piece of drivel I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. The writing itself is weak as the author attempts to use words he doesn't really understand the meaning of, in an attempt to look clever. The proofing of the manuscript is sub-standard and the clincher for me of his dismal effort is that he didn't even know the difference between the floor and the ground and used these words interchangeably. At the end of each of the supposed "novels", and I use this term in its loosest sense, the author goes to great pains, over many pages, to highlight to the readers how clever he thinks he has been in characterisation and storyline. The self-adoration is sickening beyond belief and is so denigrating to the readers because it assumes they haven't had the mental capacity to understand his obvious brilliance. I have not encountered such inability to use appropriate vocabulary to describe the action of the story without the need to use capitalised onomatopoeia since 1950's comics and this pathetic writing didn't raise a smile or even an iota of interest. I kept reading after the first few chapters hoping for it to get better, but it does not. I would have given ZERO stars had this been an option.
What can I say about this series. Awesome, Great, Futuristic, Nail biting, Blood Thirsty terror , it has it all.Once I started a book I couldn't put it down.I am not a cat person but I was plugging for Jelly all the way. You will not believe the ending it is not what you expect. Andrew Mackay is fast becoming one of my Favourite Authors. Love his style. - Adele
