Review of Z-Rex
Here's the update I promised on Facebook. Sorry about neglecting to blog, but I've been busy with tests and all that. I decided to do a review today, and the book that gets reviewed is Z-Rex.
Z-Rex is a science-fiction adventure book written by Steve Cole. The book follows the adventures of Adam Adler, whose father is working on creating the ultimate video game system. Think of a system that makes you feel like the star of the ultimate action adventure film and you've got it. However, constant bugs and glitches makes the progress slow. His father then leaves on a business trip to visit some people who are interested in financing the project and promises to be back in a few days.
A week and a half goes by and his father is still not back from his trip. Adam is getting worried about what has happened to his father. However, soon he's got bigger problems on his hands. His apartment gets attacked by a huge Tyrannosaurus creature and he is forced to flee for his life. He is soon captured and learns that the Tyrannosaurus was created by scientists (by accident of course). The Tyrannosaurus then takes Adam and sneaks into Scotland (where Adam and his father are from). Once there, Adam seeks to find help, but ends up in more trouble (and bigger problems) than he counted on.
I would recommend this book for people who love dinosaurs and video games, or just want something with action. This book is filled with unexpected plot twists and turns, and will leave you unable to put the book down. I look forward to the sequel to the story, which will be called Z-Raptor.
