The Fall of Io
Earth is in the aftermath of a civil war between two alien factions. When Ella Patel’s mind was invaded by the Quasing alien, Io, she was dragged into the raging Prophus VS Genjix war. Despite her reservations, and Io’s incompetence, the Prophus was determined to train her as an agent. It didn’t go well. Expelled after two years, Ella happily returned to con artistry, but the Quasing war isn’t done with them yet. The Genjix’s plan to contact their homeworld has reached a critical stage, and to complete the project, they need Iost knowledge – and he is still in Ella’s head. And now, they are hunted… again.
The Fall of Io is definitely a must read. This fast-paced novel is told in multiple perspectives and there is plenty of action and violence throughout. To be quite honest, one of the things I most profusely enjoyed about the The Fall of Io was the whole Alien in a Human’s head storyline, and it genuinely seemed as though it added a unique aspect to the story and totally seems like a unique type of alien that that isn’t usually mentioned in novels. However, one thing that I personally did not enjoy about The Fall of Io was how the violence and action seemed to be a bit much. Nonetheless, those scenes, for the most part, seemed to have breaks between them, so that didn’t seem to affect how great I found The Fall of Io.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
