It’s nothing short of the end of the world.
Someone has weaponized the broadcast spectrum – gazing upon the transmission is enough to steal your mind.
Kaylee Colton faces a technological Armageddon when suburbia shatters into civil war. All alone, and unable to speak, Kaylee will need to fight to survive and transcend her own fears if she is to stand against these enigmatic forces of destruction.
Transfixion is an action-laced rush that will burrow straight into your brain…”
Genre: YA Sci-Fi Action Thriller
Length: 289 pages
Like a spy, she observed the street passers-by from above. The neighborhood below seemed peaceful, but every once in a while a figure jogged past from left to right or right to left. Kaylee put her mind to work, and she tried to discern whose side they might be on, but she was clueless as to where they were going.
This story introduces you to Kaylee Colton. Her world turns upside one morning when her brother Sean goes berserk. And what is that strange noise? She does not have the time to find out as Sean is coming after her. She flees, hoping that this nightmare is over, soon. I cannot tell you more about the story as it would spoil the fun of reading it yourself.
With Transfixion, J. Giambrone presents us with a fast-paced YA thriller. The story is cleverly elaborated, focuses on Kaylee and her personal growth. I was drawn in, felt like a member of her comrades. I could easily envision the characters. I had a real good time reading Transfixion. Even if you do not learn the complete ‘why’ – it does not really matter, as the book is primarily about Kaylee.
This is a book to read again.
