'Three' by Jay Posey takes place in a strange post-apocalyptic world and has an unlikely hero. I kindof liked it.
When bounty hunter Three accepts the job of protecing a young boy and his ailing mother, he is a bit reluctant about it. The job is to escort them from point A to point B, but of course that's not going to be easy. There are all manner of strange bad guys in this world, like brain-hackers and the Weir, with their glowing eyes and scary nature. This is world where life is cheap, but if you've played your cards right, you might be able to come back, but I'm not sure why you'd want to.
It's an interesting cyberpunk kind of world, so I liked that enough. The main characters are a bit stereotypical: brooding hero, beautiful but tragic mother, smart adorable waif. I liked it well enough, and I'd like to see where the story goes. I definitely enjoyed the world more than the characters so far.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Angry Robot Ltd. and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
