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 (YA 17+ Sci Fi Adventure) 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 Gyaros Book Zero: 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 Gyaros Book Zero: Cry Wolf . 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 a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
