This is what I call a delicious read.A Sci mystery, twists, conflicts and self-arguments. This book is full of them.

Story is about a young brother who comes back to the city after some years and start hanging out with his sister, her boyfriend and their friends. His sister goes missing one day and after a year the boyfriend goes missing too. To try to search and find these two the young brother steps in the crazy path those two already passed through.

Never in the story have learn about the young brother name despite the fact that he is the main character. He’s always called by names given to him by others Danger,Little Brother,Scruffy and it seems that actually he is being shaped by others. Always looking up to his sister he is confused when she disappears. As he proceed in solving the mystery of their research and disappearance he finds himself too.

Totally recommended if you enjoy mental games.

Tracer is a space post-apocalyptic thriller. Earth has been uninhabitable for centuries now and people live in a space station called Outer Earth.

Riley Hales is one of Tracers. They are unofficial couriers who deliver packages not caring about contents. She is one of the most reliable tracers. One day, she is on her way to deliver a package to Oren Darnell, Outer Earth’s most dangerous man, when she is suddenly attacked by a group of gang members. When one of the gang member take a look at what is in the package they all suddenly disappear, Riley cannot help herself and look at the contents too and in doing so she ends up trying to save Outer Earth’s people from Oren Darnell a maniac.

I am really conflicted to rate this book. The plot was good and story was typical appealing space thriller but there was too much action. Too much happens in the book which causes confusion and boredom. Some of the chapters are written very well but flaws are here and there. There are pieces that seems out of place. Overall this was an OK read.

Thanks the writer for providing a copy.
