Fan Video: How it Feels to Read Zer0-Day

Covert government cyborg agents from Nevada’s underground expansion of Area 51. A crumbling megacity ruled by cybergangs. An insane neuroscientist and a kidnapped infant lost to memory, until now…

Joshua goes by many names. Zer0-Day: gamer legend in the Virtual. Reaper: ruthless leader of the Epitaph cybergang. The Operator: sole controller of the Maelstrom, a mind-linked weapon that can kill any human and circumvent any security measure. Despite this notoriety and dubious achievements, Joshua doesn’t know who—or what—he is.

While he suspects his amplified senses and reflexes are due to a head full of wetware, he doesn’t know how it got there and isn’t sure he wants to find out, given what he knows now.

Joshua’s activities have always placed him on the wrong side of the law, but his homemade weapon, the Maelstrom, has attracted the attention of a covert government entity. Evading law enforcement may be second nature, but he’s never dodged a hunter as relentless as Agent Vince Farrell.

Farrell and his team have two orders: 1) apprehend Joshua (mostly) unharmed, and 2) hand him over to black budget scientists who will permanently mind-link him to the Maelstrom. Farrell is confident this mission will be a simple snatch and grab.

Simple never applies when Joshua is backed into a corner. His backup plan is always deadly.

I was immediately drawn in by the author’s convincing style. His love for future tech and sci-fi shines through on every page.

Set in a dystopian future Nevada, the story follows two main protagonists. Joshua has enhanced abilities which he often uses for criminal purposes; while Agent Farrell works for a repressive government and sets his sights on capturing Joshua. The blurred lines between good and bad of both main characters made for an intriguing read.

I think this book will most appeal to readers of hard-core sci-fi. The action scenes are exciting and well-written, especially the fight at the villa. I found the plot was absorbing, leaving me curious to see where the author next takes this new series.

On one hand, being in Joshua’s shoes sounds cool. He’s a badass who knows how to fight, the leader of a gang with people who respect him and has a hot blond girl (daughter of a CEO) wrapped around his finger. On the other hand, if I was being hunted down by the government for my involvement in dealing experimental nanotech weapons and dealing with a turncoat in my ranks, I’d be wishing I was somewhere else XD

Wow! Just wow! The author did a fantastic job creating a futuristic United States with realistic and engaging characters—sometimes likable and sometimes not, but always intriguing. I sat down to peruse this book, thinking I would read a chapter or two and then pick it up again later when I had more time. Instead, I gobbled up the whole thing in nothing flat. I just couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this book.
