Rex Rising - Chrystalla Thoma

This was one of those free books I got from Pixel of Ink
It started off a bit boring
(I read 2 other books in between)
but half way through,
when stuff started making sense
and things started happening,
I got into it. 
Undecided if I'll read the second one. 

Rex Rising is the story of Elei.
He's confused. 
He is slowly remembering where he is and why.
And since he has no idea where he is and why,
we don't either. 
We know he's been shot,
but not why, how or by whom.
He's infected with a parasite (cronion) to fight the other parasite (telmion).


Elei starts getting his memory.
He remembers his boss.
Oh, she's the one who shot him, 
and sent him to find Kalaes.
He meets Maera.
They try to help him. 
The Gulturs, who rule everything,
are after him.

Elei starts having dreams, 
telling him what to do.
As the story unfolds,
he gains his memory,
and the courage
to set Rex free. 

There is a second book,
but I'm happy with the ending,
and not too invested in the characters,
that I don't feel like I'm missing anything
by being unsure about the second book.

Another one of your special books. You are a very fast reader, Tima and you remind me of Sue in that respect.

Isn't is strange how some books are so hard to get into. I have a few of those too. I started and just couldn't go any farther, so they are still in my kindle waiting for the day when I will actually try again. At least they are there waiting for me.

I'm wondering if you and Ethan were able to find time to make my oatmeal bread this weekend. Don't feel that you have to do it just because I blogged that recipe, but if you do try it, I think you will like it.

I can't believe that I am the first to comment today.

That sounds like kind of a strange plot. Also kind of intriguing.
