Extensis Vitae by Gregory Mattix

Extensis Vitae (Extensis Vitae, #1)He awoke a stranger in an unfamiliar body, in a world far different than the one he left behind. He is an outsider, not to be trusted to some, a novelty to others and a potential weapon to the man with the power. Reznik is a soldier in a future time after the Cataclysm, the event that destroyed the world. What is left are underground colonies, isolated for decades, forsaking violence until now.

Reznik is assumed to be their one hope at survival, their secret weapon and his voluntary stasis has been interrupted so his new, superior body, a gift of technology can fight the battle for the colony and not be missed if he dies.

Is Reznik’s honor being dangled like a carrot by those who control his very life? In a world short on warmth, Reznik will become the fiery fighting machine to save lives and secure the gates to this underground society. His best ally is the one scientist who knows him best and she may come to mean more than he bargained for.

EXTENSIS VITAE by Gregory Mattix is an action-packed addition to the wars of good versus evil in a post-apocalyptic world. But who is evil and who are the good guys? Told he is expendable, why does Reznnik risk his life for strangers? Who will answer the questions he has? Who can be trusted? Filled with fierce battle scenes, graphic and blood spattered, this science fiction tale is a great start to a series made for the strong of constitution!

Strong writing, detailed scenes and powerful characters bring this tale to life with the best of the genre. There are so many questions left unanswered, what a perfect hook for the next book in the series!
