Time is running out for the good guys. But what happens when you don’t know who the good guys really are?
Noah and Sadie: newly initiated into an underground cell so covert they don’t even know each other’s real names. Trained for combat on the nano level, they are thrust into a war they can barely grasp.
Vincent: feels nothing and cares for no one. Fighting a personal battle with Bug Man, the greatest nano warrior alive.
The Armstrong Twins: wealthy, privileged, fanatical. Are they the saviors of humanity or authors of the darkest conspiracy in history?
On one side: Charles and Benjamin Armstrong’s Nexus Humanus. On the other: a group of teen hackers who call themselves BZRK.
Twenty-first-century warfare that takes place on the macro and nano level for the highest stakes: humanity’s free will.
It’s time to choose sides
Michael Grant's BZRK is captivating, fascinating, and one of the best written stories I've read in 2012.
Michael Grant has a writing gift. His writing style lured me into the world of BZRK, then snatched me away, making me want to turn the pages all night long to find out if all the craziness in this book will be resolved. Grant can make a reader beg for more after finishing any of his novels, and rarely any writers can do that for me.
The characters in BZRK were just wonderful. Each character had their own story and backbone, which I always appreciate when the author gives us a glimpse of a the character's history. Grant has molded these bright and intricate, yet dark and gruesome, characters in a way that made me want to read about every single characters. Props to Michael Grant!
And the whole world of BZRK is just totally insane. We have a sixteen-year-old character nicknamed "The Bug Man" who leads a nano army, as well as other characters that try to stop him. The first few chapters of BZRK are one of the most darkest and captivating chapters I've ever read. BZRK will flip your mind upside down with it's greatness and insane storyline.
Overall, Michael Grant's BZRK was a great story which has left me dying for the sequel.
