The full five for a fabulous ending to the fast-paced Recoil trilogy.
About the book:
Can you win a war without losing yourself?
Sixteen year-old online gamer Jinxy James has been trained as an expert sniper in the war against a terrorist-spread plague which has decimated the USA. Now she’s a wanted fugitive, on the run with a rebel splinter group, risking everything to save and protect her loved ones.
Jinxy has never wanted to hurt or kill, but the rebels are determined to uncover the truth about The Game, the government, and ASTA’s sinister activities, whatever the cost. She will need all her courage, skill and strength if she hopes to help liberate the nation from the second war, without betraying herself, or her love.
Review by Katy Haye:
What I’ve loved best throughout is the characters – and the interaction between them which is gloriously rich and nuanced. Evyan was delightfully irritating from the moment she opened her mouth, but actually I think barely-out-of-the-cave Bruce might be my favourite character (so long as I wasn’t stuck in a lift with him!).
The romance between Jinxy and Quinn progressed well, and there were some lovely elements – I really liked the Dr Seuss scene especially.
The pace was gloriously speedy, just like I love (I gobbled the book up in about 10 hours), and then the heist theme made for a brilliant, pulse-raising finale.
An excellent book and an thrilling ending to the Recoil trilogy, this is (imo) the best of the three. And if you grab a copy today it’s still on its bargain 99p/c launch offer.
