Review: The Killing Jar by R.S. McCoy

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000027_00019]The Killing Jar by R.S. McCoy

Published June 28th 2016

Earth is dying, circling the drain on life support. The future of the human race depends on space exploration, but they’re running out of time. Parasitic insects are systematically killing the best scientific minds but no one knows why.

Mable Wilkinson is the last hope to figure it out, she just doesn’t know it yet. For years, her resourcefulness, intelligence, and penchant for problem-solving have put her at the top of a very short list of researchers, only she doesn’t want to be part of it.

Cast out at sixteen, Mable wrote off the problems of the world long ago. Now, her focus is on Hadley, her adopted little sister, and teaching her to survive in the cut-throat underground. Instead, both Mable and Hadley fall into the hands of the program’s recruiter, Silas Arrenstein, and he’s determined to have one of them. Mable can join up with the man and program who killed her brother, or she can leave Hadley to the same fate.

This book had really great world building, a super cool concept, and was really well written.
I really liked the writing style and characters a lot. I thought there was so many really cool ideas in this book. There was a lot of POVs though. I wasn’t expecting so many perspectives and it was kind of confusing to follow at times. It was also really draining to keep track of all the characters. I did like the characters but I wish there wasn’t so many POVs.
I really enjoyed the book overall and I definitely recommend The Killing Jar to Sci-Fi lovers.
