The fast-paced Scorpion Lord kept me reading hours after my bedtime. There’s always something happening in this book, and I found myself craning my neck forward while reading, as if that would magically enable me to read faster. I read this in two nights, and can’t wait to get stuck into the next one.
The book begins when Sabre wakes up on Myon Two – once again at the mercy of the despised cyber technicians. Sabre frees himself and begins to free his clone brothers too, in the process proving to some technicians that cyber hosts are, indeed, human. Two cyber technicians help him to escape, but how far will they get with a powerful super-corporation in pursuit? In the meantime, Tassin and Tarl search with growing frenzy for the emergency bracelet given to Sabre by Overlord Fairen, the Scorpion Lord, for only he has the power to find and rescue Sabre.
If you haven’t read Book 1 in the Cyber Chronicles yet, do yourself a favour and download it (it’s free). I think Scorpion Lord would make a good standalone read, but it’s far more enjoyable if you already know Sabre and Tassin. Just be warned that you might find Book 1 so enjoyable that you’ll be compelled to buy the rest of the series. I promise you: it’s worth a lot more than it’s priced.
