Review: Singularity by Steven James


Singularity by Steven James
The Jevin Banks Experience: Book 2
Revell / 2013
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:
Jevin Banks is searching for a killer--and answers to terrifying questions he never even thought to ask.

When his friend is murdered, illusionist Jevin Banks is determined to find out what really happened. Drawn deep into a web of conspiracy and top-secret research on human consciousness, Jevin won't stop digging until the truth is revealed. Soon he uncovers a dark secret that could change the very fabric--and future--of human life on the planet.

Based on frightening scientific realities and bristling with mystery, suspense, and intrigue, Singularity is the riveting sequel to Placebo.

My thoughts:

Ever since I discovered Steven James' Patrick Bowers Files, he has become one of my favorite authors for thrillers. Singularity, book two in The Jevin Banks Experience, was such a crazy and different read! I read Placebo (book one) last year and, while I really enjoyed that one, Singularity is definitely my favorite in this series so far -- I loved it!

The story was very good and SO complex! I loved how all the many pieces fit together in the end. Singularity was written really well and I loved how throughout the book, we got to "see" things from several different characters' perspective (including Jevin, Charlene, some of the villains, etc.) - it made for an interesting read. :)

I love thrillers, so reading gruesome and/or scary scenes (within reason) doesn't bother me that much. There were some instances in Singularity that really made me cringe, but it definitely showcased the villains' evilness and added some tension to the story.

Overall, Singularity was a fantastic thriller and I loved it. There were a couple things I had mixed feelings about, but nothing major. I only recommend this book for mature readers that are also fans of thrillers. Great read and I can hardly wait to read Steven James' next thriller!
