It is perhaps worth the read for you. If you can get over the inconsistencies that is. After all, the story is mostly set in the “afterlife” and you may expect the author to construct a logically sound view of it in order to establish a firmly grounded setting. However, despite having conjured up an afterlife rather similar to the life we know, the author’s physics simply doesn’t work, attempts to weave in and match up the concept of entropy into this afterlife fails, sadly. (E.g it is claimed that life somehow mysteriously defies the laws of entropy when in fact it does not - life does increase order locally yet increases entropy universally -therefore conforms to the laws of entropy). Sorry, for the perhaps unwarranted physics lessons… (mais)

This book was not what I enjoy reading I like stories that make you think and try to figure out an answer. This seemed a little far fetched for me and it tended to be a tad
long winded.

I liked the style, the cold open and puzzle reveals throughout. Could have done with one fewer twist and a clean resolution. I'm not totally sure I'm hooked enough to read a series about Nick Cooper.

Stop me if you've heard this one: people can inherit a genetic mutation that makes them super human. For some insane reason this is not inherited truly as a Mendelian trait, but more like an...autosomal dominant trait with incomplete penetrance? (Or perhaps like a trait invented by someone with only the faintest idea of how genes work.) Despite being genetic its expression has an extreme amount of intrafamilial variability, such that the same gene can cause flying or invisibility or superhuman strength? And also the government wants to either control or eliminate these X-men, uh, Brilliants, because normal people will otherwise feel bad about themselves. Also, women exist to seduce the protagonist.

I mean, I also like watching the X-men movies and this is basically that: fast-paced, action-y, no character development, and about 5 minutes of thought put into the setting. But it's 2020 and there's much better spec fic out there. 2.5 stars.
