This is the first time I have ever come across a book written in this style. As I got lost in the pages of ‘Rogue Hunter’ I felt more and more like I was watching it on a screen. This unique effect is mastered by the combination of incredibly fast-paced action and a somewhat detached narrative voice. “It disturbed her to no end that she could not help but feel that this was the last time she would ever see Logos.”
That said, one of the advantages of reading a book as opposed to watching it on the screen is the reader’s ability to immerse themselves in the character’s thoughts; and in this case those thoughts and emotions are as deep, complex and ever-changing as the plot itself. Zyra, aka Rogue Hunter, is a complicated woman who wants vengeance, to save the world, and to find affirmation of the goodness and purpose of her existence. Such a complex mind could not possibly be explored with anything but masterful balance between a detached narrative and precise description of the circumstances.
Anyone who chooses to read ‘Rogue Hunter’ will find themselves tumbling in a condensed plot full of sudden twists and interesting characters.
