Thanks to the author for giving me a chance to read this. My review will be honest and fair. Let’s get to it.
Twenty-four years old, no job, and kicked out by her parents, Randi Matheson is living at her aunt and uncle’s trying her hardest to complete a novel she can’t seem to start when a carnivorous monster interrupts her middling life on a full moon night. Attacked during an ordinary family dinner, Randi’s relatives are murdered, and she is bitten by the beast.
Surviving the slaughter, Randi returns home to her distressed family only to become a monster herself under the next full moon. Nearly devouring her younger brother, she is stopped by the intervention of Division X, a company devoted to the killing of paranormal threats. She awakens in a containment cell the next morning to be given an ultimatum… work for them as a new weapon in the fight against evil or be dissected. A cure to her lycanthropy is promised, and with real motivation to stay alive, Randi pushes herself to the brink to return to her normal life. Small town horrors lie in wait with even smaller heroes to stand against them. Can Randi save them and herself, or will everything crumble to the wills of evil?
My Thoughts on Division X
Division X was just what I needed to help shake my reading slump. It was fast-paced, creepy, and surprisingly funny. It felt a little younger than I expected so all the YA horror lovers out there might enjoy this one too. But it does have a pretty big gore factor so keep that in mind.
My only issue with Division X is the fact that it felt disjointed in parts. It wasn’t enough to necessarily effect my enjoyment of it, but it was still something that I noticed. And one more thing, don’t go into this expecting it to be wrapped up at the end. There are still some unanswered questions that I assume will be addressed in the next book. I don’t necessarily mind that, but I know it drives some people crazy. So, I just wanted to give the heads up. Overall, I enjoyed it. If you’re still in the spooky season mood like me, you might want to give this one a read.
