May 24, 2008"Exciting and Unpredictable" Humans Reborn is a very well written and compelling book. It follows the story of Cory, a teenager who is just trying to live his life despite the things about himself he must hide. One day his life is turned upside down and he is thrown into an adventure that kept me reading every chance I had. Michael's writing style creates a world using great visualization and detail that make me feel as if I am watching the events as they unfold. The characters are so detailed that I often found myself feeling emotions as if I were right there. Humans Reborn is an thrilling adventure that will keep you guessing and keep you coming back for more.

Anyone trying to decide whether or not to buy this book, take my advice, BUY IT!!! You won't be disappointed, I promise!!!
Nov 27, 2006"Humans Reborn - Fun, Interesting, New. Worth It. " Humans Reborn is compelling, exciting and suspenseful. It develops characters quickly and thrusts them into an exciting mystery almost immediately. It could be described as a merger of teen soaps like Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill with sci-fi movies like Aliens and X-Men. Merging those two disparate sources could create something terrible, but author Michael Loyd handles the task with aplomb. Suspense is one of the books strongest suits. The pages fly by as you race to find out what will happen next. Another strong suit is the sympathy he evokes for the characters. You really want to know how they will resolve their problems. This is a fast, fun read. Scene descriptions are easy to visualize. I felt like I was watching the story as much as reading it. There are a number of violent scenes with powerful imagery. These seem to be rendered directly from the video games and computer generated movie graphics the author has... More > grown up with. Many subtle themes and metaphors pervade the book. They serve to advance the plot and don’t distract from it. There are also a number of delicious narrative circles which richly reward a second (or third) reading. The reader does have to step over a few small gaps in plot and characterization, and some aspects and statements reach a bit beyond plausibility, even for sci-fi. However, nothing derailed the story or the amount of fun I had reading the book. The last chapter, for example, is just exquisite! This is a preview of the literature of Generation Y. If you want to know how leading authors will be writing in 20 years, look here. The themes of identity, society and perception voiced in Humans Reborn have been with us for a while, but Michael Loyd has brought them into a new, fresh and fun context. Treat yourself. Read this book. It’s great!< Less
