Deadeye Mutant Files #1

The national bestselling author of the Legion of the Damned novels a must read for any fan of Mil Fic Archaeologist’s Guide to the Galaxy begins a brand new science fiction police procedural series In the year 2038 an act of bioengineered terrorism decimated humanity Those who survived were either completely unaffected or developed horrible mutations Across the globe nations are now divided between areas popu Verdict Nope that ain t good enough for me My first association after reading the blurb and seeing this awesome cover was a new Naked in Death style of book Detective mystery with a strong female lead combined with a slightly futuristic setting Hell yeah give it to me D Is there even a definition for this genre like Urban Futuristic However I was really excited to read this What a let down I have to admit the world building was interesting enough with ugly and badass mutants due to a viralbacterial outbreak As the government segregated mutants and norms and whole states have therefore vanished from society as we know it the setup makes for interesting conflicts The detective mystery was plotted well What stood out for me was Cassandra Lee the main character She s a bad ass detective out for revenge on her father s murderer She could have been awesome but was unappealing instead I think that her character was missing something vital She is so cold embittered and single minded that spending time with her was torturous and frustrating She never jokes around is in fact so rude to everybody else to the point of being completely anti social She has no private or work friends mistrusts her colleagues has no partners no acuaintances or any other kind of confidant not even a cat and she doesn t want to befriend anybody To be honest she could have been a male character and nothing would have changed in her attitude I waited and waited for something to show her vulnerability But I waited in vain I could have ignored her character and concentrated on the plot if the writing wouldn t have been so bad Lots and lots of different POVs Like the burka widow of the killed mutant who appears only for one scene or better jet Cassandra s first partner who gets killed off in a majorly dumb way in the second chapter Why the author even gave him space on paper was beyond me Let s progress with what really pissed me off big time while reading this book The inconsistencies While the world building was interesting the author didn t even try to be consistent As Cassandra and Omo go into the mutant zone she wears a face mask but doesn t hesitate to drink some Coke from the fridge of a mutant Cassandra and Ras wouldn t eat together in the beginning for fear of contamination but later have sex Those scientific plot holes were really confusing Thanks to

Summary ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ William C. Dietz

Hunt him to the ends of the earth   In the meantime duty calls when the daughter of Bishop Screed head of the Church of Human Purity is kidnapped by mutants and taken into the red zone to be used for breeding Assigned to rescue her Lee must trust her new partner mutant lawman Deputy Ras Omo to guide her not only through the unfamiliar territory but through the prejudicial divisions between mutants and norms   I picked up this book because of the awesome cover and because Ace is one of those imprints that tends to put out my sort of books I loved the beginning wherein Detective Bruce Conti begins his partnership with Cassandra Lee I liked that it was a reversal of the usual setup The guy is the younger less experienced one trying to prove himself to the suad and she s the world weary one who has seen too many partners come and goBut I started to suspect that DEADEYE wasn t for me when Conti died in chapter two of stupidity That is running out in front of nine armed men without a bulletproof vest for reasons that are never adeuately explained Lee s narration later suggests that he loved her which they knew each other for about a week and he was attracted to her but they were still standoffish Of course Lee s partner falls in love with her in about the same span of time so it s that kind of bookAnd it turned out the Lee that those first chapters sold me on was a mirage She s not a hyper competent cop with an aim to put everyone else to shame Her competence comes and goes as the plot reuires This includes getting into a lockable cage just because a nice man asks her to Her aim gets worse as the book goes on As for her detective skills she starts to suspect that the high profile girl whose bodyguards were paid off was kidnapped specifically and not just snatched randomly by human traffickers after she tracks the traffickers down and they ve already passed her off to the buyer It s present like another obstacle in the plot instead of a flashing sign that all the detectives involved need to learn to stop and think before leaping in guns a blazingBut why is it called the Mutant Files you might ask Because a virus spread through the human race killing some and mutating others Now the norms and the mutants live separately wearing face masks and other gear when they cross the border into the others territory After all the virus is still highly contagious Which is why Lee worries about eating too close to her partner but still has sex with him As if a virus with a variety of wildly different symptoms didn t strain my disbelief enoughThis book is a mess The main character is unbelievable the world makes no sense and the plot is basically an excuse for one shootout after another There s almost no weight to the climax because it s just one gun battle of many It does have a woman as the lone wolf detective with a guarded heart which is about all it has going for it Secret Agent Minister and Deadly Texas Rose younger less experienced one trying to prove himself to the suad and she s the world weary one who has seen too many partners come and goBut I started to suspect that DEADEYE wasn t for me when Conti died in chapter two of stupidity That

Lated by “norms” and lands run by “mutants”   Detective Cassandra Lee of Los Angeles’s Special Investigative Section has built a fierce reputation taking down some of the city’s most notorious criminals But the serial cop killer known as Bonebreaker who murdered Lee’s father is still at large Officially she’s too personally involved to work on the Bonebreaker case Unofficially she’s going to I picked up this book ignoring the fact that it was a male author with a female centric main character I try not to let this fact color my desire for a book but most of the time it does I ended up really enjoying this book I liked how Cass would having feelings for someone but wouldn t let that emotion overwhelm the reason she was there Also that the book didn t end with a doomed romance I m planning on reading of this seriesI would recommend this book
