2022 (Percipience Book 1)2022 by Ken Kroes

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall I feel this book is a worthwhile read. The characters are fairly well developed, at least enough that they don’t feel like cardboard cutouts and each feels like their own mind. The plot is unique and well crafted. The story is intriguing which adds to the worthwhile-ness of the read. I don’t like the format as it gives the book a rough draft feel. The book could use an editor to fix the minor mistakes in grammar and punctuation. Otherwise this is a fresh view on an important issue wrapped up in a mystery suspense thriller with a dash of sci-fi. Kroes has a good grasp of what makes a good story. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hutchison does a fine job crafting a creepy tale that will leave many readers sleeping with a light on, or at least reading with an extra one on. The writing is intelligently written with no glaring mistakes to distract the reader. A few moments during my read I felt a hint of familiarity but each time Hutchison took a fresh path making this feel unique. The characters are well fleshed and layered adding to the enjoyment of the read. The plot is well planned and threaded with enough extras blended in to keep the reader both guessing and wanting to read the entire book. Overall I feel this is an entertaining read for a wide age and genre range. I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Understanding that this is more along the lines of historical fiction than just another lycan story we were able to become lost in the story and enjoy it greatly. The writing is intelligently done with a fine editing job. Although at times there feels to be a bit more telling or explaining then showing I feel it fits the authors style and intention with this book. The whole work feels well researched and clearly has a lot of work going into it. This was a very enjoyable read and an author to keep a watch on for future releases.
