Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books
Released: 21st of September 2017
Lex lives on The Strip – the overcrowded, closed-off, bombed-out shell of London. He’s used to the watchful enemy drones that buzz in the air above him.
Alan’s talent as a gamer has landed him the job of his dreams. At a military base in a secret location, he is about to start work as a drone pilot.
These two young men will never meet, but their lives are destined to collide. Because Alan has just been assigned a high-profile target. Alan knows him only as #K622. But Lex calls him Dad.
What I Have to Say
This was another book that just didn't dragged through most of the book. I liked the setting a lot and it seemed really interesting, but so little happened except at the beginning and end.
Alan was slightly more interesting than Lex, because it was interesting to see into the mind of someone who is so willing to kill people. It was interesting to see how he justified it to himself and how his world was shaken when it came to Lex.
Lex however seemed only really to be there to have the romance. It just seemed rather pointless that there wasn't more to the plot like that.
The ending was good, but I would have liked to see more that happened between the attack and the ending. I would have liked to know what happened to change everything so much.
This book just disappointed me really and I wish it had been better.
My thanks go to Bloomsbury and Netgalley for providing me with this copy for review.
