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
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. The book is perfect escapism. I was engaged from the start, and at no point was I jarred by an inconsistency.
Who was your favorite character and why?
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.
What does Andrew Tell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
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.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No - who has time for that?
Any additional comments?
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.

Book 1 down... on to Book 2!!! Yes its that Good!
I enjoyed this new YA series so much that I went right to book two when this one finished. I just had to know what was next. Not only did I fall in love with the main characters but love how each character has a storyline that is written in and enjoyed following them all. A lot of times when a book jumps around from character to character I get lost... but the between the way it is written and the narrator... LOVED IT!

A great book. I loved the characters. Half-9 complimented by the humans drawn on his journey pursued by his paranoid military ‘mother’, brilliant. It’s a rollercoaster of a sci fi escape story with great detail set in our normal every day world. All of the elements work really well together and the pace is brilliant.
I loved the narration, it really compliments the story and has a great sense of pace.
Excellent all round!
