Emergence (DRMR #2) by Michael Patrick Hicks

Still recovering from the events that befell her in Los Angeles, Mesa Everitt is learning how to rebuild her life. Emergence-300x200

The murder of a memorialist enclave changes all of that and sets into motion a series of violence that forces her into hiding. Hunted by a squad of corporate mercenaries, with the lives of her friends and family in danger, Mesa has no one to turn to, but she holds a dark secret inside her skull. She has no knowledge of that secret, but it is worth killing for.

The ghosts of her haunted, forgotten past are about to emerge. – Goodreads.com

With the state Mesa was in at the end of Convergence, I really didn’t know what to expect from her or the direction her story would take in Emergence.  Turns out I shouldn’t have worried – Mesa is a real bad-ass and can hold her own with just about anyone.

I really enjoyed the futuristic world the author has created in this series – it’s not so advanced that it’s difficult to understand; in fact, it’s fairly easy to foresee some of the technology existing in the future.   Numerous times I’ve heard ‘make your setting work for you’ and it’s something I think was done well in this book, especially during the action sequences.

The energetic pacing made it near impossible to put this book down, because I had to know what happened next.  Some returning characters from Convergence surprised me and there were others I would have liked to see more of, but that’s part of what made the storyline twisty and unpredictable.

Emergence is a sci-fi thriller I highly recommend and hope the author has plans to continue Mesa’s story.

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
