It was fast-paced but steady

Jacob Anderson and family are fighting a battle they don’t quite understand. They heard news stories of riots and issues in the city, but they weren’t sure what was happening. They decided to leave their quiet neighborhood for somewhere safer when they were plowed into by another car. The people in the car were not… there anymore, they were replaced, or something else. The book starts off quick and just gets quicker as you follow Jacob on his attempt to figure out what is happening to these people, and tries to keep his family safe.

The narration of this is very well done. Professional and emotional. I like hearing what I feel like the author is trying to write out in a narrators voice. Kevin T Collins does a great job. His pacing and emotion made my heart race numerous times during this book. The pacing of the novel helps but Collins’ narration made it even better.

This is one of those books where it feels like everything is working against the main characters. Seriously, there were moments that I felt like the book was just going to end at any minute where everything comes crashing down. Without giving anything away, this book really had numerous times where I thought that the main characters were done and gone.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced but steady — like a marathon runner. This book kept my attention very well, because I really didn’t know what was going to happen next.

Narrarator is AWFUL

The narrator is awful. His glare for the dramatic is overdone and I'm so focused on how he speaks I can't get into the story. Don't do it!
