Faust 2.0 - Michael Brookes
This is the first book in the series Mitchell & Morton by Michael Brookes. The story is based on a really interesting premise, that is realistically portrayed by the author.
The characters are interesting and well defined. Maybe the main character, Sarah, in a few instances falls in Hollywood stereotypes; however they don't stand out breaking the flow of the book. It is the first book, so hopefully we will get to know Sarah better on the next installment and the mysterious Morton.
The secondary characters are interesting as well, which is always a welcome detail (that doesn't happen that often in modern literature, actually).
The nemesis in the story is great. I really liked and looked forward reading more chapters about her/it.
All in all, it's a fast paced thriller, that I thoroughly enjoyed.
