Peace has reigned in Bal’Mor since the end of World War Three, thanks to the security agency, Triune. But the rise of a powerful magician, bent on revenge, threatens the safety of all. Investigator, Remington Jones, is an exile herself. Considered a parasite by the Confederation and forced to live in The Underground with other parasites, Remy has acquired fake documents that brand her a normal and allow her to live topside, illegally. Remy may be one of the best investigators in the Confederation, but this case taxes even her abilities. Mainly, her ability to survive. She has to outsmart a magician, destroy a few thousand zombies, and figure out why it seems Triune--the organization that's supposed to be protecting everyone--is at the center of all the unrest. Complicating matters further, in order to solve this case she has to work with Vincent Hall, the second in command at Triune, and his team of genetically enhanced humans. NOTE: This book contains the entire first season....

Doomsday: A Remy Jones Adventure Reviews
My first read by this author but definitely a series I plan on picking up again. Not only was the story unique and original but the writing was well done, too. If you're looking for a breath of fresh air for your bookshelf this is it!First, let's talk about genre. Generally speaking, this novel (which is going to be part of a series) is a mystery. At its heart the novel drops you into a puzzle of "who did it? Why did they do it? How can we stop them?" And trust me when I say you love every minute of it! Now, beyond mystery the story does incorporate several other genres heavily including fantasy, science-fiction (apocolaptic specifically), and adventure. There is a little romance but it's very minuscule (which I appreciate and will touch on later).Of course, with a novel incorporating so many genres there is the fear that the story may be overwhelming, campy, or just plain bad. If these thoughts are entering your brain, I promise you they will not be supported by what you read in this writing. The author does such a great job of creating a universe that is both fantasy and scifi but with the right checks and balances. The fantasy aspect comes in because there are magic users in the story and they play a crucial role in the plot. The science fiction comes in because the story takes place over 50 years in the future and so the technology used is very futuristic. Additionally, the social hierarchy set in this story is founded on the devastation of WWIII.The adventure aspect comes in with the traveling to "new and mysterious" lands; the lands of the unknown. And, of course, the romance is just that- a romance. Nothing extremely different in that but I will say I loved the male character. The fact that the author stepped away from the traditional romance male protagonist and didn't make him super-macho was new and exciting. He both followed and lead the female protagonist, making their relationship more modern and equal.The fact the author chose to focus on the story and not the romance drew me in even more as a reader. The author didn't try to push the two characters together. She more so let it happen naturally and took the route of "when the time is right, the time will be right." There were points near the end it did get a little corny but overall the romance didn't overshadow the mystery and our lead character was not a woman destined/looking to fall in love or some extreme tough girl who lived on a sob story. She was a woman with a job, with goals, and with a mission. Flat out.I'll end the review here. I highly recommend this novel, especially for anyone who is looking for something that incorporates multiple genres very well, incorporates minority characters, a mystery that will leave you wanting more, and takes a modern approach to romance.

A very good book. I really enjoyed it.Opens with a bang, right at the start. Part paranormal little sci fi. All and a must read if you like to read a novel that never let's up.
