⇝My Thoughts⇜



A fascinating and super intense story, that's not without its flaws, but they're miniscule in comparison to the overall entertainment value.   Twisting, turning non-stop action is what you'll get with Vicarious.  I never got bored reading this.  The second book Ferocious is expected to come out August of 2017.  I love that this is a duology…I, personally, love them so much more than a trilogy.




The complex characters set this apart from other books.  They are diverse, flawed and intriguing.  The Tech involved is effortlessly explained.  I'm so looking forward to next book, I've read it takes place in LA and Seoul Korea, sounds enticing.

 ⇝Sex Factor⇜ More or less, but not explicit, not really…sorry, that was rather vague.  You should just read it…I would classify this as Older YA, mostly for it's darker themes.
