📕My Review

An excellent sci-fi adventure from first-time novelist Adam J. Simpson. There are several tangents running concurrently through the book and as it progresses it's revealed how they are intertwined. I thought the characters were remarkably well-developed and, by the end of the book, they felt like old friends (or enemies). The story is suspenseful and engaging with plenty of ingenious twists and turns along the way. I particularly enjoyed the scenes on board the crashed interstellar cargo ship 'Omega' and thought the descriptions of uncertainty and fear were superbly portrayed. I'm very pleased to hear a second book in this series is currently being written.

My thanks to author Adam J. Simpson for providing a copy of this book.

📗The Blurb

A decades old conflict reignited, a long lost interstellar cargo ship rediscovered and a seemingly innocent woman stalked through the city’s streets by a genetically modified monster. 

Bear doesn’t want anything to do with any of these things. 

He just wants to live, work and keep well under the radar of the all-powerful and oppressive Chairman. But his life in obscurity is shattered when he is drawn into a plot devised by the rebellious Sons of Karrick to sneak into the fortress city and steal something of immense power that could well push the planet into civil war.

Standing in his way are the genetically modified Cerberus hounds of the council, enhanced shadow operatives of the cabal and more troops than he would care to count. Not everyone is against the world-weary engineer though. He can always rely on his closest friend, a loyal pit hound named Revolver.

Full of suspense and intrigue, the action-packed Revenants Awake takes you on an emotional journey through a myriad of intertwining storylines and characters, on both sides of a conflict that is decades in the making.
