H.A.L.F. 9 has taken his first breath of desert air and his first steps in the human world. Created to be a weapon, he proved too powerful for his makers, hidden from humans and sedated. H.A.L.F. 9 has escaped the underground lab he called home, and the sedation has worn off. He has never been more alive. More powerful. Or more deadly.
Erika Holt longs to ride her motorcycle east until pavement gives way to shore. She bides her time until graduation when she'll escape the trailer she shares with her alcoholic mother and memories of her dead father. But a typical night in the desert with friends thrusts Erika into a situation more dangerous than she ever imagined.
Circumstances push the two together, and each must make a fateful choice. Will Erika help H.A.L.F. 9 despite her "don't get involved" rule? And will H.A.L.F. 9 let Erika live even though he was trained to kill?
The two may need to forget their rules and training if either is to survive the dangers of the deep beneath them.

Got it for free, but a little in love
Yes. The book is perfect escapism. I was engaged from the start, and at no point was I jarred by an inconsistency.
I think the first alien hybrid was named nine and the one after was named ten. I enjoyed ten the most. Nine was a bit soft, and the "people people" were okay. Secretly, I want ten to turn into a Deadpool like character. Be all badass, working for number one, and unapologetic about it all.
His reading voice is deep, and without accent. I like this because I was listening to the book at 2X and above. At those speeds he came out clearly, and I followed along nicely.
No - who has time for that?
Well I have to be honest and say: This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com. But, that said, I enjoyed every minute. To escape the more painful realities of life I have consumed a fair number of books. Mostly fiction. In particular, Science Fiction. So I am a bit of a junky connoisseur. While I listened to this audio book I was not putting milk and yogurt away for minimum wage, but rather running around a desert with this predictable but fun lot of characters.
