5 Stars! This was sooooo good!
* I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review *
I Am the Weapon was incredible. It was fast paced and I read it in one sitting. I started this not really knowing what to expect and around chapter 2-3, the novel took a HUGE turn that I did not see coming making it impossible to put this down.
I enjoyed all the characters-Zack, Sam, Gideon, Howard, Erica, Mike, and how they tied into one another.
There is plenty of action and the romantic elements to this novel was touching and just right. The flashbacks of Zach's life make you, as a reader, feel for him and made me want to help him find his humanity.
The Program was intense. I'm still not sure if they are the good guy or the bad guy. That's not because the author did not do a good job of clarifying, but I think, his intentions were to just add to the mystic of who they are and I will certainly be eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Unknown Assassins series.
The ending was shocking! I would recommend this to fans of action packed YA novels. Think BOURNE IDENTITY meets Young Adult. Awesome!
