While a fan of anything and everything in the sci-fi/ fantasy genre, Liquid Cool is my first cyberpunk story. The book is written by Austin Dragon.
I loved the neo-noir, Sin City, flavor of the story and the writing is engaging. The book starts with chapters dedicated to one character, which gives the story a unique POV. The main character, Cruz, isn’t introduced until chapter six. The earlier characters are then slowly brought into the main plot of the book.
Cover: I give the cover 5 out of 5 stars. It’s excellent and really captures the taste of the story.
Ending: I give the ending 4.5 stars out of 5. It does a good job of wrapping everything up.
Pet Peeves: Perhaps it’s my Kindle app, but there seems to be an extra space between paragraphs. No real biggie and didn’t take away from the story. Once I became used to it, I should add.
Overall: I give Liquid Cool 4 out 5 stars overall.
In ebook format, Liquid Cool, the first book in the series is available for free on Amazon at this time. It can also be found at Barnes &Nobles, Kobo, and iBooks.
