    they re all the same when you get down to it Good versus evil, freedom versus tyranny, love versus hate Well, this time I chose the book only by its cover I liked it, I risked and WON I don t know if you are familiar with those spy movies, resistance fighters or the ones in which spectacular escapes are prepared during the Second World War Certainly they are good movies that do not fall in abeyance precisely because of their quality Ixeos, with all its catacombs, sinister or not, sec they re all the same when you get down to it Good versus evil, freedom versus tyranny, love versus hate Well, this time I chose the book only by its cover I liked it, I risked and WON I don t know if you are familiar with those spy movies, resistance fighters or the ones in which spectacular escapes are prepared during the Second World War Certainly they are good movies that do not fall in abeyance precisely because of their quality Ixeos, with all its catacombs, sinister or not, secret entrances and portals, with the danger that can come from any direction and at every step, the way in which the characters are preparing for the No.1 mission recovering all sorts of relics, their ingenuity and organization that give prove, creates a similar atmosphere, but a fresh one Modern elements are also present, but they are not seizing the action, just pointing out that our world has a chance still.The author s idea is interesting What you ll choose to do if you ll be lured away from your world and put in the position to fight for the good of others You ll join the battle or you ll hide and you ll live on your own without getting involved It s not our world, but it is And if they have people like us, then it must be true that there s some good still in this world, too that s got to be worth fighting for Action is pretty alert, always something happening and manages to keep you plugged The tension is present and becomes effective through the actions already past rather than those experienced by our heroes Clay still had the small flashlight Without a word, he clicked it on and handed it to their leader The man s jaw was clenched tight as they followed the red stain to the portal However, our characters have their part of adventures, unexpected and dangerous confrontations, even losses The relationships that are arise, the friendships can be destroyed at any time and their daily safety does not exist The survival and the purpose s fulfillment are the only things that matter.Author s decision to choose young people is a very good one I think that the characters young age is very important Young people are free from all responsibilities, however at the beginning, idealistic, for them nothing seems to be unsurmountable and they are those who can pass easier over the stress born by their rapture while they still feeling its burden I know what you mean about having some of home Someone to share memories with, someone who knows what your mother looks like, and your school friends Someone you still have a few inside jokes with Everyone here is really nice, and, except for having to try not to get killed, it s not so bad once you get used to it But having a piece of home Well, that s priceless I like how their passions we are what we do helps the characters not only to survive, but also gives them a chance to succeed Each of them is predestined to do something, but remains to discover what, in fact to discover himself.The drops of humor are welcome, refreshing the mood and highlight the real important issues.There are many elements of which explanations the author keeps for next volumes, although the reader longs to know Who and especially what London is, what power he possess and what is his goal, if there is any and if can be find a way back home and the connection between Clay and I ll not telling you The conclusion I liked the book and I recommend to you

    Review I find myself chuckling as I start writing this review because I know I will probably come across sounding like a negative Nancy but to understand the good you have to understand the bad first I liked Ixeos, I just didn t love it and here s why.My biggest complaint by far with Ixeos were the characters themselves If I had to describe them only using one word I d pick the term vanilla None, save maybe Abbacus stood out for me Every character even the mysterious Jesus esque Landon blend Review I find myself chuckling as I start writing this review because I know I will probably come across sounding like a negative Nancy but to understand the good you have to understand the bad first I liked Ixeos, I just didn t love it and here s why.My biggest complaint by far with Ixeos were the characters themselves If I had to describe them only using one word I d pick the term vanilla None, save maybe Abbacus stood out for me Every character even the mysterious Jesus esque Landon blended together I was never entirely sure who I was following or even worse the sex of the character I was following I literally had to keep rereading conversations just to tell who was in the scene Was I following The McClellands, The Ixeos Group or those Humans scattered across the world helping bring down the firsts With a cast of characters so large it really became quite irksome not being able to clearly follow who is in the scene.My other issue, gripe whatever you want to call it with Ixeos was the pacing overall length The book started so strongly I was pulled in from the very first page The set up and how the McClelland s arrived in Ixeos was so cool and creative to boot Ducks, honestly who would ve thought However, once I made it to the halfway point the pacing slowed way down and I could feel my interest waning with every flick of the page See, it isn t that the story in itself was bad but instead it came down with a classic case of to much telling not enough showing Lack of action definitely was an issue I mean this book takes place on an alternate Earth ruled by aliens Firsts and guess what Even the villains of the story are boring No, sadly I am not joking Honestly in this readers opinion the book needed to be condensed A page here, a chapter there and this could of been the best Sci Fi book in ages especially considering how strongly it started off When you find yourself wishing for mass character slaughter just to see something exciting happen it becomes quite clear that pacing length is an issue.Overall, I really wanted to love Ixeos but much to my dismay found myself only liking it Ixeos is a clear middle of the road book for me I neither loved nor hated it and sometimes those are the worst type of books for me The question however remains, Would I recommend Ixeos No hesitation here, I definitely say Yes The world building in this book was certainly decent and I LOVED how the characters traveled throughout the world The tunnels aspect was one of the coolest things I ve ever seen and reminded me inthan a few ways of that old TV show Sliders, which you know is totally awesome comparison I also really liked that every person who arrives in Ixeos has a purpose Characters don t arrive just because they happen to be in the right place at the right time Every person who arrives in Ixeos is part of a much grander plan its just when that plan will fall into place and what exactly it is nobody knows Guess I ll just have to read Book 2 to find that out In the end, I will be rating Ixeos by Jennings Wright

    I m pretty sure this will sound a little funny but this is the first time i read a book like this one about so many mixed things.Between aliens and humans trying to save the world all i could think about was how a few characters solved the misteries some couldn t.Yeah,well ,if only that was on my mind what can i say about the rest A lot Aliens Well,there is a place named Ixeos,where aliens or Firsts ,destroyed the world we know.Ixeos is not very different from Earth.There are places that look I m pretty sure this will sound a little funny but this is the first time i read a book like this one about so many mixed things.Between aliens and humans trying to save the world all i could think about was how a few characters solved the misteries some couldn t.Yeah,well ,if only that was on my mind what can i say about the rest A lot Aliens Well,there is a place named Ixeos,where aliens or Firsts ,destroyed the world we know.Ixeos is not very different from Earth.There are places that look exactly like those on Earth,but the difference is that the Firsts control everything From the beginning we learn a little about the main characters and then we get to read about the tunnels in Ixeos At first i was confused because i didn t understand what was all about.The ducks well,that was original and those three kids Neahle , Clay and Marty.Yeah,i have to admit that i thought that maybe i won t like what will happen or that the characters accepted their fate too easy,but after a while i started to understand that it wasn t exactly how i thought.And my opinion changed It took me awhile to finally figure it out what the subject was about and i admit that it was interesting Danger.A little violence.Action something i can t pass What i liked was that the author got to the subject and showed me exactly what i wanted to read.I mean i wasn t dissapointed and i was really curious to read how everything happened.How the people lived in those tunnels.How they survived all this time.How they planned to fight back.Details that are hard not to want to know when you kind of expect everything to end quickly.I didn t It was a little strange ,that i have to admit.Mainly what was strang was how everything started one moment the world was normal and then BAM everything changed.I can t ignore that but i was excited.That doesn t happen to me all the time This was another way to test the humans,right Well,i wonder what would happen in real life From the moment Neahle,Clay and Marty entered in Ixeos they started giving hope to those caught in that place.I know why..but i can t tell Everyone was there for a reason.Everyone had a purpose and because of that they were led in that place My favorite characters were Neahle ,Clay and Marty.They were smart and kind of incredible.Each of them helped in a way and it was exciting to read about how they worked so hard.Of course,they weren t the only ones who workeed hard,but for me they always were on first place It s amazing how the author came up the idea of Ixeos and everything.Strange but at the same time amazing I m looking forward to reading the next book.The idea of readingabout Darian s plans,what the Firsts will do and everything else is too good to ignore.And there are too many things i want to know So pretty please i want to book fast

When reviewing a book, I always like to begin with what I wasn t diggin in the book So, here goes The first thing that surprised me was the character s ages When first reading, I got the impression that they were young 13 or 14 15 tops A little bit further in, we learn that Marty is 18, Neahle is 18, and Clay is 19, soon to be 20 I found it quite hard to grasp that a group of late teens would go on an adventure that involved crawling through a drainage pipe looking for a flock of ducks It just seemed too juvenile a thing for them to do That disoriented me straight off the bat It took me a bit to readjust my perception of the characters My other issue with the book was that it did seem to lag a bit through the middle It started off fantastic exciting and fast paced, but it began to lull After the McClellands find out their purpose for being on this planet, they begin getting into the groove of how things work there They go on missions, plan how to save slaves and rebels, but it becomes repetitive They go from point A to point B, chat with some people in the same position as them, wash, rinse, repeat I was getting a little impatient for the action or climax to happen.My issues pretty much end there.Now, I must backtrack a little I will try not to get very spoilery, but I can t make any promises There may be a bit of it.After our three main characters exit that drain pipe, they learn they are on a planet called Ixeos it is an alternate Earth On this version of Earth it is the year 2035, and an alien race dubbed the Firsts have taken over the planet and enslaved what remains of humanity They learn that they did not arrive on Ixeos by accident They were brought there A man named Landon is responsible, and once you are on Ixeos, you never get to leave The trio learns that they are there for a purpose to help take down the Firsts.The plot is unique and kind of scary I have to admit, alien life is something that s fascinated and scared me since I was a child I love stories about aliens, and they seem so few This book, the way the Firsts were described, chilled me to the bone I think the author did a perfect job of making you understand just how horrible these creatures are She keeps the encounters with them few and far between, keeping the suspense up and making them all theeerie and enigmaticFirsts are like that They come at you, and you realize they don t have souls There s a body and a brain, but there s no heart, no love, no compassion Just pure thoughtI was also impressed with the world building From the sand dunes in North Carolina, to the perfectly round duck pond, to the tunnels, to the new dystopian planet that is Earth, but not Earth It s all painted in a wonderfully descriptive manner The writing transported me directly into the midst of the story I felt as if I was right there next to the characters throughout their adventures and missions.As for the characters themselves We really get to see the McClellands learn and grow through the story They go from denial and anger, to acceptance and determination They learn that they each have a role to play in the battle against the Firsts, and each of them embraces their role completely Neahle, Clay, and Marty I really enjoyed these three, as well as the people they meet and grow close to in Ixeos.As with any good book, this one has some unexpected and surprising twists and revelations You discover things that ll leave you reeling These things also help lay the groundwork for the future books of this trilogy I am very impressed with Wright s ability to keep readers guessing, as well as her ability to interweave many different elements into the plot.All in all, Ixeos was really good There were a few hurdles to get past, but aside from that it was an engrossing novel and a fantastic opener for the trilogy The characters are wonderful and engaging, as well as realistic and easy to relate to I was impressed not only with the authors storytelling and world building, but also with the book s underlying message of hopethey re all the same when you get down to it Good versus evil, freedom versus tyranny, love versus hate It s not our world, but it is They have the same books, the same history And if they have people like us, then it must be true that there s some good still in this world that s got to be worth fighting forThis book isthan just a creepy sci fi adventure It has a message, and I applaud the author for that The book was wrapped up quite nicely, but with enough strings left untied to leave you anticipating the next installment I definitely plan to continue this series, and I would definitely recommend it to fans of Young Adult, Science Fiction, and or Dystopian novels Book source From the author for a blog tour Publisher Createspace
