Adam Exitus Book One is the debut book in a new sci-fi series by author Nicholas Abdilla. Adam, the protagonist, wakes up and immediately realizes something is amiss. He finds himself in a jungle, in the dirt and, worst of all, he is naked wearing only an X tattooed on his forehead. Why would someone kidnap him? After all, he wasn’t anyone special.
Then suddenly she was there, hunting, cooking and providing for him without ever saying a word. Who is she and what does she have to do with all this? In any case, who would kidnap someone and tattoo an X on his forehead? Adam didn’t know, but one thing was certain, he was going to find out, no matter what it took. With the help of this beautiful woman he now calls Anne, he sets out on a epic adventure to regain some semblance of his life, but soon realizes that things may not be not exactly what they seem.
First of all, Nicholas Abdilla’s Adam Exitus is a good story, actually a very good story. It starts out in the first person, but toward the end moves to a small portion of third person, then back again. One small drawback is that it starts a little slowly and is somewhat disjointed, but once the plot is revealed it takes off with lighting speed. The characters are well developed, the dialog is very good as well. The end is satisfying with a superb twist, leaving it open ended enough to allow for one or many sequels. For a debut novel, well done. The sequels should be very interesting.
