Review - Division X by August Hill

Synopsis -

We all have a monster within... understatement of the year. For 24-year-old Randi Matheson, she quite literally does. On every full moon, it rears its hairy head. She wasn't always like this. Ever since her attack, the animal comes out to play. And on one full moon, the beast inside tries to eat her younger brother.

Division X, a paramilitary group hellbent on the eradication of monsters, intervenes and saves Randi's brother from being devoured. They take Randi far away and imprison her in a place no monster can escape. Held captive, Randi is given an ultimatum. Work for Division X as a new weapon in the fight against evil or be dissected. Without a real choice, she chooses the former and experiences the dark underbelly of reality as she faces off against vampires, demons, and redneck serial killers. Promised a cure to her condition along the way, Randi does her best to stay alive.

Review -

I have always been a huge fan of creature features, so I was delighted to find that Division X is home to all kinds of monsters, from vampires and werewolves to inbred hillbilly crazy people.

There is barely any time to take a breath, as we jump from action scene to action scene with very short breaks in between, The body count is high and the scenes very well crafted.

That is not to say that the book is perfect, as I did have a couple of small issues. The writing style was much like a script, but once you got into the flow, that issue passed rather quickly. The biggest problem for me was that there were several instances of head-hopping, which did pull me out of the story a bit.

All in all, though, this was an entertaining read that left me wanting more. The good news is that Division X is going to be part of a series, so I certainly look forward to reading more adventures from this group. You can grab your copy by clicking HERE.
