Reseña de ARC: No Gods, No Monster by Cadwell Turnbull

No Gods, No Monsters (The Convergence Saga, #1)

No Gods, No Monsters 

by Cadwell Turnbull

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

What do we have around here? Apparently monsters have always lived among us, even organized in secret societies (with all the internal struggles that accompany that), and suddenly everything explodes and comes to light. And that is what some want and others do not. The reason for that precise moment we do not know.

¡Amigo, hámsters guerreros!

En un mundo postapocalíptico, hámsteres modificados genéticamente viven en un recinto esperando el regreso de los Gigantes. Son los H.A.M. ( Hamsters Acuáticos Mercenarios). Son de varios tipos físicos, de diferentes razas. (El autor afirma tener  hámsters y haberse basado en ellos para su cómic)

Durante años sus crías se han estado entrenando para formar parte de una especie de comandos acuáticos de élite, que realizan misiones para sus vecinos, pero no por dinero ni especies, sino que el líder va acumulando "favores" para cuando llegue el momento. ¿A marcharse ?, ¿del regreso de los gigantes? no lo sabemos. Aún.
