Los Angeles, 2019. Large sections of tinseltown are in
Richter-scale ruins in the aftermath of the Pulse and a devastating
earthquake. Surviving on the streets genetic experiment Max
is missing her genetically modified brothers and sisters from
the Manticore research facility. By chance she sees a news
story about the police search for a young rebel, who Max recognises
as one of her Manticore siblings. She is soon on his trail,
little knowing that she is heading into an elaborate web of
betrayal, greed, revenge and selfless heroism...
Angel: Before the Dawn is the prequel and first official
to James Cameron's TV series. The series features Jessica
Alba as a genetically modified woman who was created in a
government laboratory. Before the Dawn fills in some of the
gaps from the 10 years between Max's escape from Manticore
in 2009 and her current adventures in Seattle in 2019.
Allan Collins does an excellent job in bringing to life some
of Max's fears and character traits which appear later in
the series. If you are a fan of Dark Angel then this
book is a must read. And if you haven't yet managed to catch
the series then this will help fill you in on some of the
background information to help you get a feeling for the character.
writing is fluid and easy to buy into - which, believe me,
is a welcome sign when you have to review as many books as
we do here. As all good storytellers, Collins' writing engages
the reader and he obviously enjoyed this project - it certainly
comes across that way.
great introduction to the world of Dark Angel.
