The Korpes File by J. I. Rogers will take you on a wonderfully thrilling ride. I like the cover, I think it’s quirky and fits the story well. The writing is very solid with a good flow that keeps you turning the pages. J. I. Rogers has a way with a pen.
I love that there is a map, and enjoyed this detail for the story. The world building is fantastic with tons of great SciFi techy stuff that really drew me into the setting. Good dialog mixed with the right amount of flaws, attributes and wonderful dialog made for well-rounded characters that jump off the page.
Although there are several great POV characters in the story, each with their own distinct personality, the story revolves around Nash. I have great empathy for this character. From his genetic makeup causing racial problems and cruel medical experiments to his inability to match with a mate. I think the author did him justice.
Once I picked this story up, I didn’t want to put it down. There isn’t a dull moment or a misstep in the telling of the story. However. The blurb needs a tweak or two, and I wish I had known there was a character reference sheet with a breakdown of who the characters are and what they do earlier. You don’t stumble upon that gem until the end. I would have loved to refer to that as I read along. For this reason, I give the book 4.7-stars.
I highly recommend The Korpes File to anyone who enjoys SciFi, and everyone who likes to read fiction. This is a great book, and J. I. Rogers is a hella good writer.
