Review: Redeye by Michael Shean

Redeye (Wonderland Cycle #2) by Michael Shean

Two years have passed since Agent Thomas Walken and Bobbi January found themselves at the heart of a conspiracy of unimaginable greed and cruelty. The Genefex Corporation remains shrouded in mystery, and Bobbi faces a life of unanswered questions and mounting disillusionment to look forward to. But when she receives a mysterious message from one of Walken’s former comrades, she is drawn back onto the trail. Now, Bobbi will find herself newly equipped to discover the truth – about Walken, about Genefex and the Yathi race – and the key to unlocking those secrets rests in the hands of a cyborg terrorist known only as Redeye.

But the road to truth will be a dangerous one, from the glamour of Seattle’s ultramodern core to the sprawling wastelands of the Old City and beyond. Alongside a band of lethal comrades, Bobbi will face death and worse amidst urban rot, abandoned subway tunnels, and ultimately the nightmarish halls of the Yathi themselves in a race to stave off what may prove to be the death of humanity itself. Drenched in blood and neon, Redeye is a tale of humanity on the edge of a new and terrible reality.

My Thoughts:
First of all, if you haven't read Shadow of a Dead Star (reviewed here), do it. You'll thank me. It is book 1 in the Wonderland series. I was blown away by the ending and was left wanting the next book. I was not disappointed. Redeye follows Bobbi January, who was my favorite character from the first book. It is a whole new perspective. She has some hacking skills that come in very handy as she attempts to figure out just what is going on and follows the trail that she finds. As dark, gritty, and gory as the first, this book is full of action, and twists that keep you guessing. And again, I want the next book right now!

Bone Wires is set in the same world, but is a standalone. I highly recommend that one as well.

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !
*Notes: Profanity, gore.
