The next job, the next fix, the next thrill has been the mindset of Heath Fallows since the day he abandoned his broken home for the harsher call of the streets. But being a homeless thief in a conglomerate society will only get you so far, and he soon finds himself surviving by skirting outside of business infrastructure.

A career of breaking and entering and drug-peddlin

I'm really torn between a three and a four star here. Certainly the writing is good enough to qualify for a four star rating, with few editing mishaps to detract from what is just a wonderful use of language to tell a story. However, that story is somewhat on the vague side.

It's action packed. What feels like a good 80% of the book is dedicated running, fighting, blowing things us, etc. In all honesty, it got old. I needed something to break it up, even as well written as it was. But all tha

As I posted in an earlier progress update, this is a drug-fuelled future dystopian Mission Impossible. Or maybe Jason Bourne. It's seriously full of action, and mostly not the "skim over until the plot starts again" kind, it's very readable. It has a very cyberpunk feel, but without the cyber, so I'm not sure what to call that. Futurepunk? Drugpunk? Whatever it is, I like it.

Heath Fallows is a thief and an addict, hooked on a drug called Senseless that gives the user immunity to pain and fear. T

4.5 Stars!

Where to begin? I enjoyed this book so very much and am incredibly thankful to Mr. Bryant for giving me a free copy in return for my honest review.

The world Bryant creates is gritty and hardcore. When I started reading I was a little hesitant about just how much I would enjoy the story. Its very different from what I normally read. But within a few pages I couldn't put it down despite cringing a lot at the desperate and unfeeling world that the MC, Heath, lives in. The interesting thi

I had the rare privilege of being a Beta Reader on this novel. Bryant is an exceptional writer and illustrates this dystopian society with such vivid detail. The main character, Heath, has such a unique personality and throws himself into incredibly chaotic circumstances with an inexplicable ability of self-preservation and thrill seeking psychosis, you can't take your eyes off the page. You crave to find out what he'll do or say next and how he'll live through the next chapter.
Creativity is Bry

Heath Fallows is the perfect anti-hero, drug-addict, survivalist, with a wicked sense of humor, a penchant for criminal mischief and a relatable nature. We cheer him on because in the world of Towers Matthew Bryant created, Heath could be one of us. Bryant crafts a dirty, gritty world using the most beautiful prose. Towers is an awesome dystopian novel that will satisfy genre fans and hook those new to it. Highly recommended.

Towers is an appealing, post-apocalyptic/dystopian story with a unique setting and appealing anti-hero. Heath is a drug-fueled acrobatic thief for hire in a world reeling from a long-forgotten cataclysm, where the wealthy live segregated from the lower classes in their ivory towers. I absolutely loved the world's gritty and often disturbing settings, and battles against foes technological and supernatural. The book pulls you in and keeps you on the edge until the end.

Husband to a wonderful woman who challenges me and pushes me in all the best ways... and makes me do laundry. Father to three incredible girls (I am the masculine minority) who make a hero out of me.

I write because it's my passion. The rest of my heart belongs to my family.
