Review: Subject 7

I was looking for an easy, quick read on my tiny break between quarters. Here is review (also, check back on St. Patrick's Day for a new giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Subject 7 by James A. Moore
Goodreads link
3/5 Stars

One sentence recap: Genetically engineered kids have hidden monsters inside of them that can be summoned by code phrase, and the monsters want out.

I am glad I read this. There are some really great parts in this book, it is a page turner, and it has inspired me to read The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. I only wish I would have saved this one for the beach! There is very little characterization in the book, and the first person narration jumps from character to character (and to character within characters!).
It is a great action novel, I know some teen boys who would love it. I kind of wish it had been a graphic novel-I would like to see what the characters look like.
I'm hoping this is a series, because Subject 7 just kind of stops.
For comparison, I would say it is like the Maximum Ride series; only way, way more violent-lots of face-smashing.
I think I would continue to read the series just to see where it is going.

Hmm, haven't heard of this one. Sounds like it would make a great graphic novel though.
