Okay, let’s start this review off with a link to my review of Book 1 in the Project W.A.R Trilogy, Ultraxenopia. Trust me, it will save you a lot of time and confusion, not to mention, I can save a bit on my word count.
So, now that you’ve gone and read about Book 1, let us proceed to Book 2. (Dr. Richter will be pleased with your progress) …(Okay, inside joke for those who’ve read the books 😉 ) Normally this is the part where I insert clever memes and gifs, but M.A. Phipps has generously provided me with some teaser pics that will do nicely.
Type X, picks up 2 years after the last book. It’s hard to say much since I don’t want to give spoilers, especially since Release Day isn’t until Friday 08/19/2016! Anyway, 2 years later and Wynter is not the naive girl she used to be. She has become a weapon, brainwashed by the State and used to destroy cities and countries with a mere thought. She’s like Jean Grey’s Dark Pheonix, seriously, it’s bad. So while Wynter is focusing on surviving and getting her Dark Phoenix on, the actual resistance known as Pheonix is plotting her extraction. Eventually, she’s caught off guard and ends up reunited with her former friends.
Par the course for brainwashing, Wynter doesn’t remember ANY of them, and her rescuers have become her captors.
This book has a LOT going on, in a good way, not a confusing one. Wynter has PTSD, Stockholm Syndrome,amnesia, and uncontrollable powers to contend with. All this going on while a civil war is brewing…seriously, M.A. Phipps, have you ever done a stint as a writer at Marvel?
I really enjoyed this novel and I need to thank my lucky stars and the author for allowing me to read it as an ARC. I’m absolutely giving this book a 5 out of 5 stars! It’s Dystopian and if you like the Hunger Games, Divergent, The Giver, etc. You’ll love this one. It’s got a lot of violence and a bit of sexual content so I’d rate it at a PG level. Probably 15 years and up would be my conservative recommendation on this one.
You can pre-order it on Amazon, or just wait until Friday, but either way make sure it’s on your e-reader! (or book if you are so inclined.) I’ll set up some stalking links below and leave you with this teensy tiny disclaimer…..* I don’t own Marvel, Jean Grey, Dark Pheonix. I only borrowed their images from the interwebs. Marvel don’t come after me, it’s really flattery to mention your franchise in this post…M.A. Phipps wrote a good one 😉
Join M.A. Phipps on Friday, August 19,2016 to celebrate the release of Type X! Lots of great authors will be attending as well as Phipps herself! It’s sure to be fun…and we all know you’ll be checking Facebook anyway 😉 Type X Release Party
