gyaros book zero cry wolf Reviews
"Gyaros Book Zero: Cry Wolf" is a short story prequel to Rohan and Alex Healy's excellent debut sci-fi novel "Gyaros: The Mice Eat Iron". Right from the opening paragraphs it hooks the reader's attention and draws them into the world of Carthage, an immersive and well-drawn dystopian world, written with such keen attention to detail that you actually feel like you're there in the rain-soaked streets. A young guy named Ryker finds himself drawn into a criminal underworld and embarking on a mission to transport a mysterious weapon, a mission that inevitably goes wrong with dire consequences.The story is extremely well-paced, with a neat build-up that establishes the characters nicely. Ryker is the reader's main point of identification, as we share his sense of apprehension and newness as he finds himself in a situation way over his head, while the character of Wolf is particularly engaging and charismatic, a strong female character, tough and powerful yet feminine and with a compassionate heart in spite of her line of work. The action scenes are well-written, capturing the frenetic drama and making for an exciting, fast-paced page-turner. This is definitely a superb prelude to the book, it sets up some of the backstory nicely and will no doubt leave people eager for more. I'm certainly looking forward to reading more.
On the surface, after the unification on planet Carthage, there was a seemingly utopian society by banning all social deviants to Gyaros- a lunar prison. But the strict totalitarian government has rigid, structural social hierarchy that is designed to keep everyone in their place.This is setting for Cry Wolf. And then there should be a countdown like 3 – 2- 1 Action! The book is an adrenaline rush following Wolf, Ryker and the rest of the crew on their mission. I won’t give too much of the plot away, but I can say that there are some very tense moments.I think that the purpose of this book is to set the stage for the full length novel Gyaros Book One: The Mice Eat Iron that is set in the same setting. In Cry Wolf, you as the reader are able to get a better sense of the divisions within society. Everyone is relegated to their place or social position. All the information about a person is imprinted on the bio chip that is embedded in each person’s skin. The quality of life of a person is determined by social status. For example, in one district, it always rains and the weather is depressing. Closer to the upper levels, there is sunshine. Above all else, no one can freely move between the districts.As is common in many sci-fi books, you need time to understand what is going on in the society in order to fully visualize and appreciate the setting. For Cry Wolf, because of all the detailed scene descriptions, Carthage becomes real.I do not read a lot of sci-fi books, but I was glad that I read this short story. It was like a burst of caffeine without drinking any coffee. I really enjoyed it. My interest was stirred to read Gyaros Book One: The Mice Eat Iron. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
Having literally devoured 'Gyaros Book One: The Mice Eat Iron' in few very exciting evenings, I opened my copy of Book Zero with great expectations. Once again Rohan and Alex Healy did not disappoint!First of all, what a treat to revisit Carthage while waiting for 'Book Two'. For anybody who has already read 'Gyaros Book One', it’ll be quite a thrill to have a peek into some of the characters’ past and get some more insight into their stories. For anybody who hasn’t met Ryker or Grizzly yet, it’s a great introduction to the tough world of Yellow District. Yet again the story is well-written, gripping and packed with unexpected turns of events. There’s action, and there are heart-breaking moments, especially knowing some of the characters’ future. And most of all, it’s a fun, good read. I highly recommend!
