F. Paul Wilson’s latest novel is a blend of science fiction and thriller, which means it is right up my alley! Double Threat is not a novel to skip!
26-year-old Daley is concerned. Very concerned. In fact, she might just be losing her grasp on reality. She’s hearing voices, or more accurately: one voice. This voice keeps telling her that they’re bonded and will share a body from now on.
Naturally, Daley isn’t reacting too well to the news. Yet when scans don’t detect anything, Daley begins to wonder if maybe this being is telling her the truth. If so, it means that they can do wonderful things together.
Symbionts, cults, and prophecies? Sign me up! Double Threat is a novel that has a whole lot going on, and it makes for an exciting read. Unfortunately, it is a bit of a struggle to describe without the risk of spoiling some of the best parts.
So this time around, I’m going to go with less is more. Double Threat is thrilling, fun, and chaotic in all the best ways. Daley’s character is bright is interesting, as is her newly found symbiont, which is more or less exactly what you might be imagining.
I really enjoyed this varied take on the subject and certainly wouldn’t mind reading more about their adventures in the future!
