{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Division Zero - By Matthew S. Cox


Author: Matthew S. Cox
Website
Release Date: 3/7/2014
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N
Most cops get to deal with living criminals, but Agent Kirsten Wren is not most cops.

A gifted psionic with a troubled past, Kirsten possesses a rare combination of abilities that give her a powerful weapon against spirits. In 2418, rampant violence and corporate warfare have left no shortage of angry wraiths in West City. Most exist as little more than fleeting shadows and eerie whispers in the darkness.

Kirsten is shunned by a society that does not understand psionics, feared by those who know what she can do, and alone in a city of millions. Every so often, when a wraith gathers enough strength to become a threat to the living, these same people rely on her to stop it.

Unexplained killings by human-like androids known as dolls leave the Division One police baffled, causing them to punt the case to Division Zero. Kirsten, along with her partner Dorian, wind up in the crosshairs of corporate assassins as they attempt to find out who – or what – is behind the random murders before more people die.

She tries to hold on to the belief that no one is beyond redemption as she pursues a killer desperate to claim at least one more innocent soul – that might just be hers.

Love, love, love!

Honestly there are so many aspects of Division Zero that had me looking at the author with completely wonderment. One of my favorite scenes in this entire book is the opening action sequence. It was like a mixture of House on Haunted Hill meets X-Men, with a dash of Saw.....it was gruesome and creepy and amazing!

During the entire book there wasn't a single moment when I was bored, or felt like there was too much going on, because honestly it was written so well. Gifts, ghost, smart ass partners, Templeton....mmmm, Templeton....everything in this book pulled together to create a phenomenal plot, as well as story line. One aspects I enjoyed a lot in Division Zero was how "transformed" the earth was in the future. Different sectors, underground movements, there's a war on Mars and even abandoned areas no one will go.

Ok, now onto Kirsten! Kickass mama-jama!
She has been through so much, exposed to so much, and is only in her early twenties. Working with Division 0 since she was a teen, abandoned and trying to figure things out on her own, Kirsten has a pretty good head on her shoulders. Though the lonliness does hurt, she's has one of the most feared abilities on earth, (That can make it hard to land a man), Kirsten is dealing with major emotional trauma from her past. It's really interesting to see her deal with all of this during the book, or should I say how Dorian pokes at her about it the entire time. LOL.



Overall this book was fantastic! The way the side plots came together at the end and had you totally saying,  "HOLY!", made the ending to the book that much better. When an author can create something this different it hooks me instantly, which is why it took my only days to finish!


4/5
