Book & Author Details:
Prisoners by Robert J Crane
Publication date: October 11th 2016
Genres: Sci Fi, Superhero
Sienna Nealon has dedicated her life to keeping those with powers from breaking the law at will. After years of filling a prison for the powered called the Cube, a Supreme Court decision opens the floodgates and lets all of them out again.
Now Sienna finds herself going from hunter to hunted as the US government turns a blind eye while the former inmates target her and her friends for death.
With the attacks hitting closer and closer to home, will Sienna be able to fight back against the overwhelming odds before she – or someone she cares about – gets killed?
It really doesn’t seem that long ago that I was reviewing book #9. And it wasn’t! This author has an impressive production rate, and yet the quality never seems to dip.
I really should be starting to hate him a little bit on Sienna’s behalf. I mean, leave aside the fact that she is underappreciated and her ex would like nothing more than to lock her up and throw away the key. But now, everything she has worked for is being undone.
Despite that, Sienna’s growth continues, even though she faces extreme provocation and has to take steps in this book which leave her somewhat … exposed. The question is – how much can she take before she reverts?
This is a shorter novel, though not by much. But it works. It fits. There is no padding, just the right number of words for the story which needs to be told. And although Crane once again leaves us hanging, there is something about his writing which keeps me coming back for more.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
