Title: Six Pack : Gyration
Author: B. W. Morris
This is the sequel to Six Pack: Emergence, which I reviewed in December 2017. Tyler was my favorite character then, so when I received the sequel and read the back blurb, I was pleased to see him centralized.
While the first book in the series had an accelerating pace which wrapped you up in a whirlwind of adventure of which Marvel would’ve been jealous, Gyration meanders in the beginning, reminding its reader with what has happened in a reflective depression reminiscent of Collins’ Mockingjay. These psychological touches fleshes out the reality of the group’s situation.
There are a few chunky phrases. Morris has a blunt, straightforward narrative voice that creates gritty realism but also stumbles into dry descriptions at times. I’ll be interested to see what comes next as I’m a firm believer in third books being the tells of a good author. Seconds, even for the best, often have a sort of stressed responsibility and connectivity to them, and the weight can at times be seen in the dialogue.
All in all, a good book in an interesting serious that I would recommend.
