Okay, so this was a great read. If you are a guy or a girl who loves bikes, or I mean Bykes, then this book is for you! It lays heavy on motor bike details so if bikes aren’t your thing I would probably pass this one by.
That being said, I am not so into bikes, or bykes as it’s spelled in the book. But, this story was a fun ride. I think that the girl in this was okay at best. The love interest was a little farfetched and not believable in some parts. But it was an okay book for me.
The plot and story line read very fast, it doesn’t lag at all, which was very good. So if you’re looking for something to read that deals with boys, bykes, and a race, then pick this up and enjoy.
In the vein of The Outsiders and the early Western novels of Elmore Leonard, this inventive debut novel, a cross between the cult classic Mad Max movie series and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, blends adrenaline-fueled action with an improbable yet tender romance to offer a rich and vivid portrayal of misfits and loners forced together in their struggle for a better life.
Adam Stone wants freedom and peace. He wants a chance to escape Blackwater, the dust-bowl desert town he grew up in. Most of all, he wants the beautiful Sadie Blood. Alongside Sadie and the dangerous outsider Kane, Adam will ride the Blackwater Trail in a brutal race that will test them all, body and soul. Only the strongest will survive.
The prize? A one-way ticket to Sky-Base and unimaginable luxury.
And for a chance at this new life, Adam will risk everything.
