Reviews of Doubt by Anne-Rae Vasquez

ZaldyF reviewed on Nov. 10, 2014

As a bookworm and a lover of anything sci-fi and fantasy. I usually don't have high expectations from books I am reading. At the back of my mind I perceive that all are similar in a way or two. Lo and behold! Anne-Rae Vasquez's first book on her Among Us Trilogy surprised me more than anything else.

More of a fantasy than a science fiction, which maybe many of us will mistake at first. Set in a modern day world of computers, internet and technology, this books gave me the most surprising twist of all. Never did I know that the story will unfold towards a plot that seems to be at the other end of the stick. Angel and demons, good and evil, belief and religion, time travel and mysticism. You won't know what's next while reading this book. It will keep you guessing what is going to happen next, who the main character really is, what the characters are all about and what is really the reason for each characters actions. While reading your mind is continually being piqued by the story. Each characters have their strength and weakness (one trait on a story I found good), yet they also have some sort of personal scheme.

If you are being curious at what I said in this review, you won't find it here. I will not spoil one good story by sharing it all. I highly recommend that you get this book, read it till the end. I honestly cannot wait to start book two. Kudos to the author for tickling my imagination with this first book in the series.

Rate: 4.5 stars
This is the first book of the Among Us Trilogy series by Anne-Rae Vasquez. It revolves around the lives of unique individuals that are banded together to discover the truth behind their missing loved ones; little do they know they will discover much more than what they anticipated. Harry Doubt created an online game known as Truth Seeker, as a way to gather these people, particularly those with exceptional abilities and skills. Their quest for truth will lead them in the midst of “the end of the world” and it is up to them how they are going to stop it or if they have what it takes to impede these catastrophic events.

What I like with this book is the fast-paced action and suspense in every page, which keeps me on edge and glued to my seat at the same time. Being a supernatural / paranormal fan, I loved how detailed the author depicts every scene, making it so realistic and plausible, to the point wherein we question ourselves about the reality of the world we’re living in. The story was complex enough to keep you guessing without being exaggerated. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5-star is that some of the characters are not transitioned into the story properly, making it difficult to remember who’s who and their relevance in the story, which I hope to be cleared out in the next part of the series. Overall, this is definitely a good read and I honestly can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy.

I highly recommend this to everyone who loves science fiction and dystopian genre with an added supernatural twist.

Doubt is a solid start to Anne-Rae Vasquez’s ‘Among Us’ trilogy. A band of misfits have bonded together over the online game, Truth Seekers, and been pulled together in real life to embark on a chilling journey that will challenge their perceptions of reality. Doubt has heavy blend of murder mystery, sci-fi and supernatural forces, in the tradition of Fringe and X-Files. This book is highly recommended for those who like their suspense to straddle the line between reality and the unknown.

Doubt is a well-written fast pace novel that you won’t want to put down. I started reading Doubt on a whim, and quickly found myself hooked. It had all the elements of a great story surprises and depth. The characters Harry and Crista were well developed, complicated and dynamic. The plot was full of twists and turns. It was a quick read highly and I would recommend it to anyone. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Harry’s father was a quantum physicist, working on the feasibility of time travel, before his sudden death. When Harry’s mother was reported missing after working for Global Nation in Tel Aviv as a peacekeeper, he was determined to find her. Global Nation is a worldwide non-profit organization involved in peace, education, and social activism. Harry has data proving that Global Nation conducted experiments on innocent people, and he knew they kidnapped his mother, he just didn’t know why. Needing his expertise to set up a security firewall, Global Network hires Harry and he puts together a team of online gamers with unique skills to help him infiltrate the organization.

This is an exciting adventure story, with a cast of characters that will surprise and delight you. At times, some of the technical descriptions are challenging to understand, but not so much as to keep you from following the story. There are thrilling twists and turns that will keep you guessing and waiting for more. A sneak peak excerpt from “Resist,” Book 2 of the Among Us Trilogy is included. This is a welcome bonus, as I wasn’t ready for the story to end.

'Doubt' was certainly a fun and interesting read. Full of twists and turns from the very beginning. Cristal is smart, strong, and definitely one of my favorite characters. This is a good quick read for anyone interested in science fiction, romance, or mysteries. I am excited for the second volume to be published.

Doubt- Among Us is a fast paced urban fantasy novel that anyone who likes conspiracies and science fiction type work will enjoy. The story moves along fairly quickly and is very detailed in its plot and characters, but also suffers in some aspects. The writer often tells us things instead of showing us, and conversely gives us some really detailed and nice imagery such as, "CRISTAL’S THOUGHTS WERE rattling in her head like a pinball machine, each one banging into the other."

The downfall of this novel is that it is very obvious it is self-published and could have done with a distinct polish over in order to create a smoother narrative, but it does do the job for an entertaining, if not raw, fast paced and breath quickening read.
