About Dragon’s Teeth
You can never outrun your past…After years of war ravage the globe and decimate humanity, civilization is revitalized in the city of New Arcadia, a cybernetic playground where longevity treatments promise near immortality. Detective Cyrus, fond of fedoras and narcotics, is hired by Benji MacDowell, heir-apparent to an eugenics empire, to find MacDowell’s long-lost biological father. Employing his network of shady contacts within the underbelly of the city, Cyrus uncovers a murderous web of corporate corruption and political conspiracy with ties to the old Order, a tyrannical organization whose sole intent was perfecting the next generation of genetically engineered soldiers.Now Cyrus knows too much and finds himself caught in the cross-hairs of super-soldier assassins while the dark secrets of his past snap at his heels, forcing him to confront the truth he’s been running from… and discover his own terrifying purpose.
DYSTOPIA. SCI-FI. You should read this book based on those two genres alone. Haha! But to provide a meatier review…
I love dystopian worlds. I love sci-fi. Well, the more realistic sci-fi. I’m on my last year of my undergraduate studies and I’m studying and training to be a molecular biologist. This is my thing, you guys! Longevity treatment? Yeah men. What’s more is that the protagonist (ish) is a detective (!!) who’s fond of fedoras (!!!), tasked to find Benji’s long-lost biological father. So add in mystery thriller, conspiracies and secret organizations in the mix and gah, I am all googly-eyed with this book.
The book is told in three parts which I think worked well with the narrative and was a great move from Suzanne. Her storytelling was tight although it surely picked up pace after some time as most mysteries do. The world she built was also rich and full of possibilities. She’s a whiz at descriptions and building worlds since dystopic worlds such as this one ABSOLUTELY needs that.
Overall, a fast-paced, action-packed dystopic mystery sci-fi. Yeah, if that doesn’t sound good, I don’t know what does. <3
