The Lost Boy (The Mutant Rain Origins #5) by L.A. Frederick

The Lost Boy gives us a glimpse into the life of the mutant, Isaac, after he’s escaped the company of Dr. Zhirkov and Darkmore. Hiding out in a series of fleabag hotels in the inner city of New Hampton until the girls in the black garb catch up with him, he’s always on the run.

This night will be no different. After “convincing” the seedy hotel manager of his current flop that he can stay another week without paying, Isaac retrieves his room key and goes to bed. But gunshots from the area of the front desk awaken him and he knows he’s been found again. He escapes from the first set of guards (the girls in black) through the use of his unique “talents” only to be trapped in an alley by Darkmore and more guards from the Newton Street facility.

The Lost Boy will give readers a better understanding of Isaac, a main character in The Mutant Rain series. It’s outstanding, and I have a much better picture of the boy that Isaac was.

This series touches a broad range of reading interests (mystery, urban mystery, mutants, horror, sci-fi, dystopian, urban horror). There is something for almost everyone.
