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.

A debut to watch out for with a gritty and realistic feel to this dystopian world! 14 juin 2014
Par Pili at In Love With Handmade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The Murder Complex was one debut that I was quite highly in my list for this year, since I'm a huge lover of everything dystopia. And although it wasn't absolutely mindblowing, it wasn't a disappointment by any means.

There are quite a few unexpected twists and revelations to this one, and I'm gonna do my best to keep this review spoiler free, even if I'll have to be a bit vague here and there.

The Murder Complex is told in dual POV and we follow Meadow and Zephyr on their different paths until they cross and then we experience the events from both their sides. Their voices were quite distinct when we were following them separatedly but once they got together they started sounding a bit too similar on occasion, except towards the end when the voices became more distinctive again.

My favourite part of the book has to be the world building. I loved how real and gritty and chilling the world inside the perimeter felt. At first we don't really know much about how such a society came to be but as we get more answers it becomes more bleak and more scary. This is a world were humanity is not very humane and survival by any means necessary is not the norm but encouraged.

Meadow has been taught to fight and to be strong and kill whenever necessary by her father, to be able to find a job and help feed her family in the very harsh society that they live on. Zephyr is one of the Wards, orphans that do the hard tasks of corpse dispossing and cleaning afterwards, but there's more to him, a darker side that he sort of knows about but can't control.

Then comes everything that I really cannot talk about cause all the spoilers start appearing. But we find out that some characters are more central to the plot and the world building that we thought. And the society and crimes we saw depiced so routinely were more cruel and orgnized than we thought at first.

There's a bit of romance in the book, but given all the mind control and conditioning going on in the society we encounter, it's quite hard to describe as insta-love. We're not really sure about what's real and what's been implanted in the end, and if you add all the stress and all the high stakes and the fights and the adrenaline, is not to hard to see how emotions are running high and how confusing things are for Meadow and Zephyr.

The ending is quite a cliffhanger and I'm quite excited to see where the author will solve it and where she'll take the story next, cause we've give a few glimpses that are very enticing! All in all, a very interesting debut with a greatly constructed world. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 for the world building.

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.

I kept thinking about this long after reading 11 juin 2014
Par Jen(LBW) - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow so The Murder Complex is unique for many reasons but I think the most is because of the main character Meadow. She is willing to do anything for her family, even kill. I mean literally. I feel like normally you would have an mc that would say something like that but be too kind at heart to follow through. Not Medow, she lives in a world that won’t allow you to be soft and she is far from sheltered. She can be cold as much as she can be warm. She is such a kick butt heroine. She is strong and not afraid to die. Not really, her only fear in that respect is who would take care of her family. She is pretty selfless and I love how she dotes on her little sister.

Zephyr is also a pretty cool character. I love how sweet and adoring he can be but on the flip side. Well, he has a darker side than most.

The fact that both MC’s have killed people takes away a certain amount of innocence that makes this story different. It’s something that can be huge to a personality. There is so much to these characters. They are survivors to the fullest extent of the word.

The world created in The Murder Complex is dark. There is something called the Dark Time when most of the murders happen. Plus just the way that you have to get a job and obtain rations is crazy. I think this is probably one of the worst dystopian worlds I have ever read, not in bad writing as in wow I would not want to live there. I thought that Lindsay did an awesome job of creating not only the visual in my head but the feeling of what it’s like to live there. Scary is all I can say over and over again.

This book is really good and I’m having a hard time finding a way to describe it without giving too much away. I loved the mystery part of it and honestly sometimes I would think I had something figured out, I would be wrong. There are lots of things that surprised me. When I first started reading the book was interesting but a little slower, once Meadow and Zephyr meet for real things get crazy. I couldn’t put it down and had to know what they were going to uncover next.

The romance is light but good. I enjoyed it. Nobody is flimsily throwing the l word around like it has no meaning. There are intense things that happen to Meadow and Zephyr but they still have a strange pull towards one another.

Cliffhanger? Yes. Appropriate? Absolutely. I couldn’t picture this book ending other way. If people mounted white horses and rode off into the sunset that would be totally wrong for this book.

If you are looking for something a little darker that involves some serious mystery uncovering look no further. I highly recommend picking up The Murder Complex, I really enjoyed it.

A Great Debut! 11 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm one of those people that tend to put off reading books that everyone else is excited about. I do eventually get around to reading them, but I tend to wait until all the excitement has died down. Don't ask me why. I'm just odd like that. The Murder Complex had so much buzz over on Instagram, that I eventually checked out the synopsis and found myself really intrigued. So I went ahead and broke my rule and requested it for review. So, so happy that I did!!

See that opening of the synopsis that says, action packed and blood soaked? The Murder Complex lived up to that and then some. Lindsay Cummings did not in any way shy away from the death and gore, She was descriptive without being overly vivid. It contained the perfect balance for me.

Meadow Woodson is tough, strong, resilient and independent. She also has a deep love of family and will do whatever it takes to protect and care for them. She carries a lot of responsibilities for someone her age, but she never shied away from them. She got in and did what had to be done. She was very self sacrificing and always seemed to put everyone else's needs before her own. I think that she's so used to the toughness of her life that she had trouble showing a great deal of vulnerability, and I would have liked to see some more of that from her.

Zephyr James was such a complex character. He had so many layers to him. I found his character to be really open and exposed. He was strong. He was caring. He was emotion. So many emotions. He experienced them all throughout this book. Good, bad, crazy. He lived them all. As the reader, we always have a sense of his strength, but I think it wasn't really until the end of the book that we really got to see exactly how strong he is.

While there is romance in the book, it never really at any point overtakes the story. In fact it takes many, many twists and turns, so that at each stage, you are never really sure what exactly is going to happen or which direction things are going to progress in. It was unpredictable every step of the way. There were some sweet moments between Meadow and Zephyr, but their relationship had so much intensity and so many aspects to it.

There was so much mystery and intrigue throughout the story and I found myself really on the edge of my seat at times wondering which way Lindsay was going to take things. And nine times out of ten, she managed to surprise me.

Action and adventure are the focal points of The Murder Complex. The pacing was fantastic and the chapters, which are told in alternating points of view, were quite short which really added to the excitement levels of the story.

For a debut novel, I was really impressed with this one. Yes, in contains certain aspects that you'll find in other dystopian novels, but the original content far outweighed those.

The ending!!! The ending!!! The ending!!! Yes, what a way to end the book. I quickly tried to progress to the next chapter, because there was no way that you could leave me hanging like that. But hanging is exactly how I was left. Next book... now please!!!

4.5/5 Great Debut Stars.
