I really enjoyed The Lazarus Machine.  It is not the type of book I normally read, but I’m a fan of good writing and this certainly fit the bill.  The main characters, “Tweed” and “Octavia” make a great pair and work well together.  The book grew on me and kept me reading, which is a big plus.

“Tweed” and “Octavia,” as well as a few other key characters, work toward stopping a sinister man intent on ruling the world.  The dialogue and scenes are interesting.  I felt like the author did a great job of showing instead of telling.

The Lazarus Machine is well worth the read.  The ending was great and I did not see it coming.
