Kain Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today I have a stop on the blog tour for Kain. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

Sex, Drugs and Cyberpunk Book One
By: Brie McGill

Beaten to a pulp, drugged into a daze, and brainwashed into oblivion, human experiment Lukian Valentin gambles his life to evade another eviscerating afternoon with his trigger-happy superiors. Fifty stories of a maximum-security building and hundreds of trained special operatives can’t hold a candle to his will to escape. Beyond the laser bars of his holding cell, Lukian must surmount the even greater challenges of repairing the fragments of his broken mind, forgiving himself for his unwilling involvement with the Empire, and learning what it means to live on his own.

The sassy and commanding Naoko Nai wonders just what to do with the soft-spoken, socially awkward, and totally ripped guy she was assigned to train for employment. She knows nothing else about him, other than the fact he was granted asylum, is great with a knife, and his little white apron gives her distinctly unprofessional thoughts.

When the Empire comes to collect, Naoko unwittingly provides the perfect bait to reel Lukian back to headquarters for a fresh series of brain implants and repair.

To save the woman he loves, Lukian must summon the deadly powers implanted in him by the Empire—powers he fears he can’t control, powers he struggled to forgive himself for using, powers that may drive Naoko away forever—because no ordinary man has struck a blow against the Empire and lived to tell the tale. To save Naoko, Lukian must emerge victorious from the battle against himself.

My Review
Lukian just wants to escape and live a normal life. He has memory losses and remembers beatings. He isn't sure what all is going on just that he needs out. As he escapes with help he starts his new life. He enjoys the sunlight and even his new boss Naoko. As he begins to fall for her he still has to worry the Empire will come after him. When they do they are willing to use whatever it takes to get Lukian back. He doesn't want to use what the Empire forced on  him but he will to save those he cares about.

This is a very interesting book. It has lot's of action and you can't help but feel for Lukian. Sometimes he seems like a killer others he will remind you of a teenage boy. He has been through horrible things that is no doubt. I liked seeing him enjoy the small things in life and how he will do whatever for those he cares about. The Empire is full of evil people and you wish hey would fall the whole time you are reading. The rules are strict and you never know what they will do  next. I also love the sexy parts with Lukian and Naoko. They add spice to the story. If you like stories with lots of action, a great guy you get to know slowly even as he gets to know his self and some love give this one a try.
