Kain by Brie McGill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am assuming the book cover has changed because we were given a book with a different cover. Hmmm, like the new one because it is related to the story. Love the old one because it was more artistic.
Brie's book, Kain, gave me more than a wow experience with her array of wonderful characters and her amazing imagination. Loved, Loved, Loved “Kain (Love, Drugs, and Cyberpunk)". It was difficult not to get ahead of book club discussions or to stop reading this book.
I love it when a book leaves me thinking of the future for the characters - what are they doing now? I am definitely recommending this book to all of my friends.
Now for technical bits. Character development was flawless. Plot was something not all of us at the book club was happy with. It moves at lightning speed, and then Lukian goes into a lull, this was confusing and at some stretches got a bit annoying. The violence is tolerable but there was far more sex than violence so not too sure if many readers will be comfortable about that.
However, if you find yourself in a similar situation, all I can say is STICK WITH IT. It turns out to be an AMAZING book...as it got closer to the end.
Brie McGill has created a fascinating world that will challenge your notions of what is right, what is moral, what is human long after you finish the last page. The book can stands on its own (I think), with no sequel necessary. I'll be the first in line should she choose to revisit these characters, though! 5 stars!
