… In the next instant, Rebekah felt Creature’s smile spread across her own face. She tried to will him away, but this only seemed to provoke him further. Her jaw snapped wide in a perfect replica of its evil smile …
Imagine life in unknown universes and realms, as well as beings and astral creatures having enhanced abilities. Astounding, right? Do you want to find out more? Then you should pick up Ark of the Chimeron: Creature from the Black Nebula.
A massive explosion shook the city of Las Vegas and brought the city to ruins. A virus is on the loose—the thrill kill virus, which causes its victims to become murderous. Humans come together to fight the virus by creating Chimeron (creatures with enhanced abilities), but unknown to the humans, there are more sinister forces at play. The war is not just their fight, and alas, they are not alone in the universe and beyond.
Ark of the Chimeron: Creature from the Black Nebula is unlike any other I’ve read. Justin Grimmett writes in such a peculiar way, incorporating morals in his tale. Humans, though faced with huge problems, show remarkable survivability and strength. In this book, compassion and sacrifice are expressed by people who have suffered a great deal of loss. There is so much to the story than just science fiction; the characters express emotions—rage, anger, malice, jealousy, and deceit—that define them and make this book distinctive.
The writing is unique, detailing especially interesting characters in a compendious way. The vivid prose instantly transported me to the world of this great tale. The plot, overall, is intriguing and captivating. If you like outstanding page-turners, I highly recommend that you read this book. The writer keeps you guessing with an unpredictable end. I must say the first half of this book left me speechless, and the unexpected twist blew my mind. However, the end was a bit disappointing; the book finishes with a slow pace. Also, in the middle of the book, there is a bit of sloppiness in the plot; it felt as if the writer was going in circles.
I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. Asides from the slowed momentum in the middle of the book, I absolutely loved this book. This book is the first in its series, and it definitely did justice to the title. It is exceptionally well-edited (kudos to the editor) and devoid of vulgar language. But there are a few gory scenes, so it is not suitable for a younger audience. I recommend this book for avid science fiction readers who love a bit of drama and dark humor.
