Reviewed by Scott Cahan for Readers' Favorite

Arcade by MF Thomas is a post-apocalyptic science fiction tale with a strong dose of originality. It’s a story that takes the reader eight years beyond the point where everything shuts down and paints a picture of human existence that is both devastating and fascinating. A down-on-his-luck former FBI agent named Walter is the central character who, on his path to find his missing daughter, gets swept into saving the world. He meets a beautiful and brilliant young woman named Sloan who is conducting scientific experiments with far-reaching consequences that could possibly help restore humanity on Earth. Walter feels compelled to help Sloan, partly because he sees good in what she is doing, partly because he is attracted to her, and partly because he wants to protect her from an evil man and his army who will do anything to stop her.

Arcade by MF Thomas is a well-written, fast-paced thriller that took my imagination on a wild ride that I won’t soon forget. The story starts off as a detective story but evolves beautifully into a science fiction masterpiece. MF Thomas’ writing style is smooth and vivid. Every character in the book, from the protagonist to the supporting characters, is interesting and relatable. The plot moves at just the right pace to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. Most of all I enjoyed the surprising direction this story takes that somehow manages to be out-of-this-world yet at the same time realistic and entirely plausible. Arcade is a great work of science fiction that I highly recommend.
