Haywire by Justin R. Macumber | Book Review

This book by Justin R. Macumber was awesome! Once I knew the characters I loved it every step of the way. I was intrigued right off the bat with the awesome sci-fi world and action. Then it changed pace as I met new characters. It didn't take too long before all their worlds collided in one crazy, awesome, and fun story. I was not bored once in this tale. Even early in the book when I was getting to know the characters and the crazy adventure hadn't started yet it was really well paced and a nice way to get to know them before you'd see them tested to their limits.

I'm giving this book five stars because it was everything I could have wanted in a sci fi adventure and then some. Not only was the story world a fun one to be in, but it was told in just enough detail to keep it believable while not dragging you down and slowing the story. Once crap started going down, this book moved at an amazing pace for me and before I know it I had come to the end. That said, there are many memorable moments that Justin slowed down and took his time on. Some that I will never forget because he crafted his story in such a way that I really felt like I was right there with the characters. Those memorable moments are another reason this super fun adventure story is getting a five star review from me. It was a fun romp through space, but one speckled with small memorable moments that held me in wonder as I experienced them with the characters.

I'm sure I'll read this one again and pass it on to my kids once their old enough. If you like Science Fiction, action, adventure, awesome fight scenes, or just a good story then you should give this book a read. The audio book is also really good. It took me a while to get used the way the narrator almost over enunciates everything but she's really good with characters and accents and made the book shine in my ear buds. I also own this book on Kindle. I am really looking forward to reading his fantasy title "A Minor Magic," to see what Justin does in another genre. This book proved to me that Justin is an author I'll be happy to read for years to come no matter what genre, because the dude can tell a good story.
