Présentation de l'éditeur

An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller—set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate—that Booklist called "carefully crafted . . . chilling." "Legend meets La Femme Nikita in this dark and dangerous bloody thriller. The nonstop action of The Murder Complex kept us guessing at every twist and turn. It's a must for fans of action-packed dystopians like The Hunger Games and Divergent."—Justine Magazine

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision. The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn't know it—one of the MC's programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family? Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.

A dark and bloody world, set in a terrifying dystopia... 7 février 2015
Par Alicia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
4 Stars

THE MURDER COMPLEX was bloodtastic read that I devoured. I was allured by the dark essence and the fast paced plot that kept me engaged and entertained until the very last page! It was a bloody world, full of twist and turns that satisfied.

But to keep it real, THE MURDER COMPLEX was a good book, but it had it's faults. There where many aspects that I enjoyed, but many that I didn't. One that I really enjoyed was the world-building--the backbone to THE MURDER COMPLEX. I liked that it added it's own touch of originality to the dystopian world, and that it delivered on that aspect of the book.

Another thing that I really loved was that it was bloody! I don't really know what that says about me...lol, ;) but I loved all the blood and murder, and the chase. It was thrilling to live through it all through the characters eyes, and see and feel what they felt. It was definitely a terrifying world that I would never want to live through!! I do give the author mad props for creating such a complex world that was dark and deadly, and awesomely thrilling!!

But there were a few things that drove me insane. Manly it was just one of the characters that I didn't like for numerous reasons. Zephyr was one of the main POV's and the love interest that drove me insane. First, his name annoyed the hell out of me!! I mean what kind of name is Zephyr??? That was the first strike against him. Then he said this repetitive word, Skitz's." What hell does Skitz's mean anyway?? I looked it up, and it's the meaning for Schizophrenia. WHAT??? What idiot would go around saying that all the time?? Then, when he meets Meadow, the other main POV, he starts acting like a little love sick puppy that would bend the earth for her. I mean he JUST met her and he was acting like that. Actually, I think he said that he might love her before he was even formally introduced to her. He was just a total turn off from the beginning, and then it just kept getting worse. Their was just too many reasons why I didn't see eye to eye with his character.

Another issue I had was the POV switch. I can usually put up with multiples POV's, but don't prefer them. And THE MURDER COMPLEX was no exception. I really only liked Meadow's POV. Zephyr just drove me crazy, and that made me hate him even more when it would switch to his POV.


Commandment One: Honor the Initiative.

Commandment Two: Thou shalt not attempt to cross the perimeter.

Commandment Three: Honor the Silent Hour.

Commandment Four: Thou shalt not harbor useful items from the days before.

In the horrifying world of THE MURDER COMPLEX, where murder rate is higher than the birthrate, and killing becomes as easy as breathing. Meadow, a girl just trying survive in this blood-soaked world she was born in, is ready to do the unthinkable in order to keep her family alive--even if she has to kill for it...

Fifteen-year-old Meadow Woodson has been trained to kill. Her only goal in life is to survive, survive and keep her family breathing, and that is by any means necessary.


Meadow's father has been training her how to fight, kill, and survive for years. Preparing her for her chance to take the placement testing--where everyone gets the opportunity to prove their worth for the honor of a job in their society. He's been readying her for when the time comes that she will have to kill or be killed, for the job that their family so desperately needs. And it's now Meadow's time--kill or be killed.... Meadow is determined to be the last one standing, she's ready to embrace her training, she's ready to shed blood, she's ready to kill....

But then Meadow's world starts to fall apart even more when she meets Zephyr, a Ward of the state--unworthy in the eyes of The Murder Complex. But something is different about Zephyr, he's not like the other Wards, and she feels compelled to help him when he makes a stupid decision that could cost him his very life. And then the web The Murder Complex spun many years ago begins to unravel, and the truth behind it all starts to slowly surface, and many facts are revealed that could shatter their world to the very core. Meadow's world becomes a race against the clock as she tries to understand who--or what Zephyr is, and what really is The Murder Complex, and why do they want her so badly, but most important, how is her mother tied into it all. As if that's not enough, Meadow has to cope with all this while trying to find and rescue her family that's just become missing.

Like I said above, it was a good book with it's flaws. I was expecting more from THE MURDER COMPLEX then what I got, but it still satisfied enough to keep my attention and have me engrossed in the characters and the overall plot of the book. I'm still eager to read the next book and see how it all plays out, because that ending was intense and definitely has me craving the next book!!

Overall, THE MURDER COMPLEX was a thrilling start to a fun series that I know I will continue to enjoy! I had my issues with this book, but I also really enjoyed it at the same time. I've been eager to read this book after hearing about how bloody and dark it would be, and it overall didn't disappoint! I think if you enjoy dystopia, mixed with a touch of Sci-f, thrown into a bloody dark world, then you will definitely enjoy this one!!

An action packed dark story with tons of twists! 10 juin 2014
Par A Reading Nurse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Wow, what can I say about The Murder Complex, other than it was one hell of a ride. You are immediately drawn into the story line. I don't want to go too much more into the synopsis than what is stated above. Almost from page one you are drawn into this action packed story. This story is very dark and at times gory. This story had a very DIVERGENT feel to me, except the roles are reversed. Meadow is the one that is brave and kick ass where as Zephyr is trying to figure things out, who is, what he is and why he keeps doing things we doesn't want to to do.

There are so many twists and turns in this book that start about 50 % through, starting from one almost "deadly" kiss. Around this point is where I could not put the book down and I flew through the last 50 percent of the book in less than 2 hours, because I just had to know what was going to happen next. There is a big TWIST in the end of the book that made me gasp out loud. Luckily the book does not end on a huge cliff hanger, but so many new components are revealed that will keep you waiting for the next installment of the series.

With all the action and big scenes, I would have liked to see a little more talk about emotions and feelings to kind of add more context to the action that was occurring and add more depth to the over-all story line. These characters were so great and interesting I wanted to know more about them and develop a deeper connection to them. I am hoping to see more character development in the next book, mixed in with the awesome story line and action packed pace that Lindsay Cummings has created.

... Lindsay Cummings on Instagram and Youtube and I just love her to pieces 14 juillet 2014
Par CindiJ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I follow Lindsay Cummings on Instagram and Youtube and I just love her to pieces! She has such a great personality and one day I'd love to meet her. But in several interviews, she did mention while writing this book, she went through a bout of depression due to some illnesses she's had, and I totally saw that being reflected in this book.

This book was dark and bloody and sometimes unnecessarily so. I felt ok about Meadow and ok about Zephr. Both of them didn't really make me feel for them like I sometimes feel for characters in books. I liked the alternating chapters style and didn't get mixed up while reading it. Lindsay provided different voices for Meadow and Zephr and I thought that was done really well.

I guess my main problems with this book were the world building and the writing style. First the world building. I didn't quite understand why the world turned out the way it did. How come the death rate is so appalling and killing just like this was ok. The government seemed really bad but how did it get this way? It gets somewhat explained towards the end but I wanted more! In this Dystopian world, there's not really this BIG BAD that I felt like controlled everything and gave us a reason to fear it. There were just crazy people running around that were supposed to be "the government" so it didn't quite make me understand how this world worked.

The writing style, while sometimes beautiful, I felt lacked description. I wanted a more rich book...as rich as a pool of fresh blood!!! The pacing was really really fast and sometimes I wished it slowed down a bit to provide richer description of the setting or feelings these characters were having. For instance, sometimes with certain action scenes, I'd get confused where the characters were and how the fights were happening. I didn't know who was in the scene and where the bad guys were in connection to the good guys in a room!

The ending was definitely a cliffhanger and I have no idea how Lindsay is going to turn this one around in the next book. It's almost a dire situation so I'll just leave it at that. I will be picking up the second and last book (I heard this was a duology) because I want to support her in every way! I just hope some of the problems I encountered in this one is somehow fixed in the next!

Book Whales: 4 Stars! The lasting impression that this book gave me are the action scenes. It was awesome! 14 juin 2014

Count to three. Relax your mind. Now Survive

I’ve been dying to read this book for ages after seeing the summary on Goodreads. Plus the cover is creepy yet it has this allurement that you can’t resist.

The story is written in dual perspectives, Meadow’s and Zephyr’s. Both strong individuals who grew up in world where murder rate is higher than birthrate. One who is trained to survive while the other is to kill. What is The Murder Complex? You have to read this book to find out more.

Okay, the world-building is great. The world Lindsay made is easy to digest. As a reader, I was able to adapt quickly. I also like the puzzling factor. Where you guess and put the pieces together; it made the book more fascinating. The scenes were good and it has the action you need; fitted in this kind of story.

The character building is okay. The dual perspectives is a plus factor. You can see what each characters are thinking and it gives you a hint of intimacy with them. My favorite character is Zephyr. I like his mysteriousness. Everything is vague about him especially his past. But that vagueness tickled my curiosity. I felt his pain, anger and compassion. Also his mega strength will make the girls faint. I didn’t like Meadow that much. I didn’t feel her emotions and she’s a bit unruly. I had a hard time connecting with her.

As for the love-angle. Yes, it has this butterflies in my stomach factor. I don’t like insta love and I’m happy to say that romance develops slowly yet surely. I expected more spice between the two because of their age and surroundings but there was little. Hopefully book two will change that.

The lasting impression that this book gave me are the action scenes. It was awesome! The revelation on the latter part has hit its target. Why?!! How come?

Overall, I like the book and I can’t wait for the next installment. I recommend this book for action and dystopian lovers.

I give this book, 4 killer whales.

Dark, gritty, and blood-soaked---and awesome 26 juillet 2014
Par Rachel @ Paper Cuts blog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The Murder Complex is one of those books that appealed to me from the beginning. I'm all for dark, gritty, and violent. The synopsis sells that element of the book, and the book delivers.

While what drew me into The Murder Complex to begin with and got me going in the book was the gritty, violent world promised, it was really the characters that kept me reading. Meadow is interesting and different from a lot of YA characters in that, yes, like most she'll sacrifice for her family, but she'll also kill. There's this line that a lot of authors don't push their characters past, and it's interesting to see the psyche of someone who is both willing to kill and who does kill. At the same time, she's not cold-blooded, she's not distant. She's very present and loving, especially towards her younger sister, Peri. It's this love that pushes her, the love that hopes she can keep her sister from having to make the same sacrifices she has. She is a product of the society she lives in, but she's never without motive and love.

Zephyr is just as interesting as Meadow. His history seems to be simple, and his memories are few in number but happy. Everything is upended in Zephyr's life, though. He knows he kills, but he has little recollection and cannot stop himself. He spends each and every day mourning those he has murdered and trying to help new, inexperienced orphans survive. He's gentle at heart, but that is at odds with what he does in the Dark Hour. His journey into finding out who he truly is and where he comes from is fascinating.

Seriously, the action here does nothing but deliver. Chapter after chapter after chapter. If that's your kind of thing, this is awesome and addicting. If it's not, it's hard to say you'll enjoy this novel. That being said, it pretty much made me want to jump around and throw knives (though not kill people, obviously). I kept turning page after page, left at the end of each chapter with new questions that needed answers--immediately.

I can tell you the romance is going to bother people, because it's tinged with that oft-hated characteristic of instalove, but, aside from Meadow and Zephyr thinking things, there's not much acted on. The beginning is a little confusing hopping in, because you're given lots of capitalized names that you don't know the meaning of, but the world is built immensely well and you understand soon enough. These are things that sit in the back of my mind, personally, but didn't really ever actively bother me.

I had a great time reading The Murder Complex (which may seem odd, considering the word murder is in the title, but I digress). I read three-quarters of the book in one very excited sitting. It's just teeming with interesting characters, great world building, and plot. So, if you're a fan of dark, blood-soaked, and gritty books, The Murder Complex is for you.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
