Title: The Chimera Code
Author: Wayne Santos
Publisher: Rebellion (Solaris)
What I really liked about this, was the fact that we’re thrown right into the action. I also liked that the novel didn’t just have the typical male/female characters, like cyborgs and such. There was a lot of tech and electronics, VI, gaming jargon though, that I didn’t get at all, and felt like it was written more for those who know about that sort of stuff – but I did like the premise of the story and the way the VI/VR worked within the novel. Something else that threw me off a little, was the way that the timeline seems to jump at times, with a gap in between events and no recall on what has happened between the chapters. I enjoyed learning about Zee’s background story, though I would have liked to learn about Marcus and Cloke’s background too – aside from their families and such. I feel like it would also have been useful to have a pronunciation guide for some things, particularly Zee’s pronouns as I wasn’t sure how to pronounce them properly. Overall however I did enjoy the .novel a lot, as it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, and would definitely read more from Santos in the future.
