It's been said that there's no such thing as an original story, but Aaron Crocco proves that old saw wrong with this book. I have never read anything that approaches this plot : Scientists working to trace the energy of a person beyond death. Of course, that's the hook, the starting point, and there are more than a few twists and turns along the way. The central character, Evan Ellis, is a man struggling with a most unusual affliction, but it's one that happens to be exactly what these people ne ...more

Thank you to Goodreads and Aaron Crocco for the privilege of reading Spirit Hackers. I am honestly not much of a sci-fi fan, however this one is a totally captivating twist-filled thriller! Mr. Crocco gave me an outstanding story that caught me from the beginning.

I gave The Spirit Hackers 4 ½ stars. I won't post spoilers, because I hate ruining it for others. What I will post is a snippet from the author…. Anyone Evan Ellis touches dies in less than a minute. This unexplained ability has litter

Spirit Hackers is part thriller, part sci-fi. Immediately after his introduction, I honestly wasn't expecting to like Evan Ellis very much, but he was a surprisingly likable character. The supporting cast is strong and the antagonist possesses believable, even heartwrenching, motives. The science, I found to be more fantastic than realistic, but I don't feel the story lacked anything for that. Overall, the suspense and action of this novel propelled me through an enjoyable read. Should Crocco co ...more

The ideas behind this novel were fascinating. You've got a young man with a destructive power he doesn't know how to control and mad scientists who want to exploit him to further their research tracking life energy into the afterlife. Moment by moment, there was a lot to recommend this story. There were very exciting scenes and interesting plot complications.

But there were also serious flaws that pulled me out of the story. The main character, Evan Ellis, struck me as shallow and lacking in empa

The opening scene of the book really grabbed me ... maybe more than the author intended, since it wasn't about the main character in the story, who was pretty weak and hard to care about in comparison.
I was a bit surprised when I heard this book went through an editor. There were still quite a few errors throughout.
The underlying ideas of a sort of spirit energy, and that we could create a portal to the afterlife were interesting, although the repetitive descriptions of the technology became tir

Aaron Crocco can be summed up as a writer and a podcaster, but complicating this further is the fact that he's a huge geek, Apple fanboy, and loves Back to the Future so much that he owns a Delorean. In the mid-2000′s his writing spark was reignited and he's been tearing up the keyboard ever since.

Aaron’s debut sci-fi thriller novel SPIRIT HACKERS explores the intersection of technology and the a
