Wyatt received a text from Jessica, his longtime crush, inviting him to attend a party. What was supposedly a fun party started a series of events that changed Wyatt’s life and someone is behind this elaborate plan. People are dying and he is being pursued by the police for crimes he didn’t commit. Wyatt has to outsmart the person orchestrating this ruse to get back his life. But how will he do it when he is being held at gunpoint by Jessica, who turned out to be a gun wielding, psychopathic, spoiled, rich girl whose daddy has the entire police force at his beck and call? Will Wyatt be able to defeat the guy behind all his deadly problems or will this person get to him first. Read Catalyst: A Red Dog Thriller, the first book in The Altered series by Blou Bryant.
Catalyst by Blou Bryant is an action packed, fast paced, dystopian thriller with quirky and headstrong characters. It is a story full of twists and unexpected developments written in an enjoyable way. I appreciate that the secrets weren’t revealed at once and were presented gradually, like being with Wyatt as he navigates his new life of violence while trying to escape his captors. Another plus is the way the place and scenes were described; they were written well. I found Jessica’s character to be deplorable and Wyatt’s need to explain and try to justify her actions to be also annoying. But it is a great book because it was able to elicit such strong reactions about the characters.
