Are you a fan of steampunk? Well, hope so because I came back with the second installment of the Tesla series. For readers that never read the first book in the Tesla Evolution series by Mark Lingane yet click here and then come back when you read it. For those that have kept on reading. The second of the Tesla Evolution series is called Decay by Mark Lingane.
In the second book Decay, Sebastian, Melanie, Gavin, and Isaac return. The story takes place a year after the last battle and after Sebastian’s mom was taking away. We find Sebastian and Isaac who have been training like crazy, older, and tougher and of course still getting into mischief as usual. Alongside Melanie’s relationship with Gavin is developing and Melanie finds herself as a captain for the army at the Steam Academy. Things are coming along and great except the attacks of Cyborgs are getting more repetitive and fierce.
In the story we are greeted with a new breed of cyborgs that are large and more animal like. Melanie who was sick in the previous story is finally clear of her condition but is instructed to stay clear of Sebastian this leads her to start growing up and becoming more ladylike. The story also takes an ugly turn when a strange couple arrives at Steam Academy and becomes the major. This at first seems like an ok idea but turns out the couple has their own hidden agenda. The mayor somehow turns the city against Tesla kids and vow to rid them believing they are evil and the city must be cleansed. This leads Melanie, Gavin, Sebastian, Isaac, and Nicola to flee the city and to find a way to save the city from destruction and to find a way to stop the Cyborgs from destroying the human race.
This sequel is awesome and never short on action and gadgets. Who doesn’t like Steampunk and Cyberpunk in the same story? These two genres make a perfect pair especially when you have cyborgs. The book helps answer more questions and keeps me at the edge at my seat. I couldn’t put my kindle book down in anyway. In fact I ate and read, and stay up till two in the morning reading this book. What a blast. I can’t wait to read the second book. If you are interested in the read the next book the link to the book is below and as always keep on reading.
