Really fun. An inventive new series.

I’m a big fan of Michael Anderle and his writing. He took a genre, the vampire/were genre, and completely reimagined it with “The Kurtherian Gambit” series. The James Brownstone series away also a great series, full of fun, ass kicking, and BBQ. So it should come as no surprise his new series with Taylor McFadden would be very good. I won’t go too much into the backstory here, but earth has seen an invasion of the biological sort, “The Zoo”, which is altering the DNA of earth creatures with that of alien DNA, hence the Cryptids. McFadden is hired to work with a group of FBI agents to find these outbreaks of human consuming alien biologics and putting them down. This has required the development of mechanized exoskeletons that allow humans to be more, shall we say, competitive, against the aliens organisms. Mix in a surly FBI female handler, and other characters, and you have the start of a promising new series. I really enjoyed it.
