::no spoilers ahead::

Sci-fi! Horror! Romance! WOW this book has it all! I am a huge sci-fi fan and can usually see plot twists coming from a mile away, but this book kept me guessing until the last page. Seriously, everybody go read this one so I have someone to discuss it with!

Start this one early and prepare to stay up late to finish it, because I couldn’t put it down. But I wasn’t going to be sleeping anyway cause some of the scenes are a major creepfest. I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so

Wow. All I can keep repeating is wow. This book—this story—is such a whirlwind of adventure into the unknown. Rebecca creates characters with a realism unlike any author I’ve ever seen, their quirks and peccadillos make them literally leap off the page and into your memory banks forever.

Then there’s the world-building. I can’t fathom how long this intricate reality took Rebecca to create, but she covers every nuance and describes it with a lyrical lilt that paints the world around you, stroke b
Must read!

My goodness! After reading this (well after every chapter really) I needed to take a step back and just process. From the very beginning of Hybrid I was shocked and surprised. I really didn’t know where this was going to go or how it would pan out! I found myself really savouring this read, I both couldn’t wait to and at the same time dreaded finishing it.

I had to put the book down after Chapter 3 because it was late and I managed to freak myself out! I then kept all my limbs tucked

Author Rebecca Henry always does a beautiful job of weaving together stories of love and romance. In HYBRID, she expertly factors in a vivid, intricately-told science fiction tale involving plenty of action, along with human emotions and otherworldly interactions. Rebecca masterfully creates a frightening underground world with such a descriptive plot, filled with distinctive, beguiling characters and shocking twists and turns. The chemistry between Agent Van and the alluring Annika literally ju ...more
Book review!!!
Let me start by saying that I am not really a sci-fi fan, this is a sci-fi book. What I AM, is a huge CIA fan and this book is all about the CIA fighting off aliens trying to destroy humans. There is a little something for everyone in this book. There is the sci-fi angle, the CIA top secret government program angle and there is also a little mini romance as well. If you enjoy a good alien tale, and let me just say that not all aliens are created equal, this book is for you!

I hesitated between four and five stars, until finally going with five. Let me shed light on it.

I enjoyed this read very much. It was a thrilling read, and the action was there almost straight from the start. I never knew what was around the next corner; the direction I expected this book to take was changing all the time as I got deeper into the story. The twists kept surprising me.

I appreciate all the knowledge this book contained, the theories and history of our own Earth. This book had plent

The Review

This is every sci-fi readers dream book! A phenomenal read that explores several different aspects of the science fiction genre. From time-travel and the influence of alien species on the development of the human race, to worlds within the Earth’s core and creatures born of scientific experimentation, this is the ultimate sci-fi read.

While the mythology of the alien creatures and the world at large the author created is what initially draws the reader in, it is the emotional and relat

If you like science fiction, aliens (Phylax), monster like creatures (Tlalocs), action, horror and romance, than you will love this book. It has everything and more!

But there is darkness, with fierce fighting against these terrifying monster aliens. Lots of twists and turns will keep you hooked to the end. I really ...more
