BZRK is a unique, action-packed story about the war taking place “down in the meat”, the war that could determine the fate of the human race.

Sadie McLure, daughter of billionaire Grey McLure, is horrified when she witnesses the death of her father and brother. This was no mere accident, and Sadie is determined to discover the truth behind their deaths.

And Noah Cotton is desperate to find out the cause of his brother’s madness. He was an army recruit, Alex. But then something happened, something that drove him so insane that he was sent to live out his days in an asylum, screaming about Bug Man and repeating the word “nano”. It has to mean something, doesn’t it?

These two teens are joined in extraordinary circumstances, and thrown into the deep end of a major battle. A battle that is too small to be seen by the human eye. A battle between biots and nanobots. A battle that leads to multiple deaths, and could alter humanity entirely.

I loved the concept of this book. I’ve never read anything like it, about tiny bug-like robotic creatures and people who are linked to that are linked to their biots in such a way that they risk their sanity with every mission. But personally, I found it all somewhat… overwhelming. I wanted to enjoy it but I just got lost and, frankly, kind of bored. It improved again further on but I’m only going to give BZRK 3 stars.
