Boy X

Reviewed by:

Award-winning author Dan Smith has created a sci-fi/mystery thriller set on a remote jungle island where research and human experiments with a lethal virus could destroy the world. Ash, the teenage son of a genetic scientist who has been imprisoned and infected by the deadly compound, has twenty-four hours to solve the mystery of why he was drugged, kidnapped and brought to the medical facility, to cross the jungle, to destroy the virus, and to find the antidote to save his mother. His sensory abilities have been altered and the action is heart-pounding as he faces super-powered animals and insects, evil scientists and fierce criminals. Incorporating flashbacks and lost memories, as well as offering a cliff-hanger ending, this exciting, suspenseful novel will appeal to fans of the genre.
