Hikers-Part One: Power by Lauren Algeo is a science-fiction horror novel like no other. From the very first chapter this novel had me hooked. The plot is so unique and frankly quite terrifying! The idea of having someone overwhelm a person's mind and "hitchhike" to make you do their evil bidding is the thing of nightmares.
The main protagonist is a tortured man who spends his days hunting these "hikers." Algeo does a fantastic job developing our main protagonist and has the writing ability to include an unlikely partner after a particularly frightening encounter. The writing style is fantastic and the story is fast paced and enthralling. As a reader, you will not want to put this book down!
This is a great read for fans of science fiction and horror. The surprise twist at the end will leave you in shock and on the edge of your seat awaiting the followup. I can not wait to continue this amazing adventure and to see just how much more frightening Algeo can make this story.
