My Review:

I really loved this book. It had one of the most action packed, straight into the fray opening scenes that I’ve read in a long time! It kind of felt like I was watching The Walking Dead, that tense feeling in your shoulders and that you don’t realise that you’re not even breathing, till the whole scene is over.

From a writer’s perspective, it was beautifully written and an excellent example of how you can tell a story without massive info dumps and lazy characters. The opening scene tells a lot about the main character through her actions and dialogue, rather than giving off a laundry list to the reader. You really have to read it to see what I mean, but if you’re a writer, you need to read this book to see how it can be done.

The front cover is great too – very eye catching and perfect for such an over-crowded genre. I’m not a fan of the colour orange in books, but it seems to work!

Overall, I’d give Recruit Z 5 out 5 stars – a must read for both fans of the genre and writers alike!
