Singularity ~ Review

Singularity
A Jevin Banks Novel
By Steven James

Having read Placebo I was looking forward to reading Singularity.  The invitation to join this blog tour came with a warning Not for the timid or faint of heart reader, and believe me this was no idle warning.  The book opens with a man being paralyzed so that a neuro-tech experiment can go to the next level - the merging of man and machine (creepy - really, really creepy)..

Totally creep-out and I started reading this on October 31 as my nice quiet evening at home read.  Not the best thing to read before bed, unless you plan to stay up the whole night because you can't put it down.

While this isn't my normal reading choice, Singularity does rank up there with works by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker they can definitely have a bit of a creep-out quality to their works as well.  Now don't take this wrong because yes the book had a creep-out factor, but it was suspenseful and definitely held my attention until the end.  

In Placebo we are introduced to Akinsanya and his is back as evil and diabolical as ever and Jevin has to outsmart him if he is going to save the lives of those closest to him.  And when evidence is discovered that suggests a link between RixoTray and the DOD, Jev's investigation into the murder of his friend Emilio becomes a lot more complicated.

I can say with all honesty that I am looking forward to what happens next in the illusion that is Jevin Banks's world.  And I'd like to know if he can discover who is the power behind RixoTray and Akinsanya.  My dad would have loved these books as he was the one who introduced me to Frank Peretti.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Available November 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
Jevin Banks is searching for a killer--and answers to terrifying questions he never even thought to ask.
