The Murder Complex Review
An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young's Dust series., Le Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.
Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.
The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is-although he doesn't know it-one of the MC's programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?
Action-pack, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.
The first thing I would like to mention is how crazy this book is. You would be thinking that one thing will happen and then, BAM! Something completely unexpected ends up happening.
We open up to Meadow and her sister Peri going home and us getting a insight on what is going to happen to lead up to the events in the book. We find out that Peri is kind of the child who is cared more then the her brother and sister. She have shoelaces, which is apparently a luxury in this world.
When we get to Zephyr, we find out the he knows nothing about what he does and why. But he has these, flashback/memory rise type of thing and we find that he does remember somethings. Just not at all times.
They met when Zephyr is dying from twelve cuts on his arms. Meadow force the doctor to use her blood to help him live. When he wakes he has no memory of what happen. Which doesn't really make sense of how that happened. Then at one point he goes all mass murder on Meadow and they have this extremely epic fight against each other.
I did not like Meadow's father, brother or mother. They were all such sociopaths and didn't care a single thing about anyone. Well, unless it favors them.They were all so mean and careless, not to mention how they we always trying for the upper hand. They are all just so hard to even a little bit to like.
The freaking ending through.Meadow, why did you let Zephyr go by himself? It would have been easy for you to help your sister if you were with him. Ugh.
