Cover Reveal: Wall Street Titan (An Alpha Zone Novel) by Anna Zaires

Book Synopsis:

A billionaire who wants a perfect wife… 

At thirty-five, Marcus Carelli has it all: wealth, power, and the kind of looks that leave women breathless. A self-made billionaire, he heads one of the largest hedge funds on Wall Street and can take down major corporations with a single word. The only thing he’s missing? A wife who’d be as big of an achievement as the billions in his bank account. 

A cat lady who needs a date… 

Twenty-six-year-old bookstore clerk Emma Walsh has it on good authority that she’s a cat lady. She doesn’t necessarily agree with that assessment, but it’s hard to argue with the facts. Raggedy clothes covered with cat hair? Check. Last professional haircut? Over a year ago. Oh, and three cats in a tiny Brooklyn studio? Yep, she’s got those. 

And yes, fine, she hasn’t had a date since… well, she can’t recall. But that part is fixable. Isn’t that what the dating sites are for? 

A case of mistaken identity… 

One high-end matchmaker, one dating app, one mix-up that changes everything… Opposites may attract, but can this last?

From the New York Times bestseller Dima Zales comes an action-packed sci-fi adventure set in a post-singularity future. For a limited time, get all 3 full-length novels (1000+ pages) in one convenient, discounted bundle. 

When invisible technology runs everything and memories can’t be trusted, how does one sort the truth from the lies? 

Oasis, the last habitable area on post-apocalyptic Earth, is meant to be a paradise, a place where everyone is content. Vulgarity, violence, insanity, and other ills are but a distant memory, and even death no longer plagues the last surviving humans.

Theo, a twenty-three-year-old Youth, has never fit in with the serene, age-divided Oasis society. But it’s only when he starts hearing a girl’s voice in his head that he realizes that nothing is what it seems. Phoe is his imaginary friend—or is she?

As secrets are unveiled, Theo is dragged into a dangerous game where the virtual and the real worlds collide.

What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be real?

Theo is about to find out.

My review:

This isn’t the first set of books that I have read by Dima Zales and Anna Zaires. I had reviewed The Mind Dimensions Omnibus by Dima Zales a few months back and liked it. I loved Close Liaisons (The Krinar Chronicles: Book 1) by Anna Zaires. I was excited to read this trilogy.

I was disappointed. Very disappointed and a little let down. The first book, Oasis, was alright and kept my attention for the entire book. The story was good (was Theo going insane? Who was Phoe?) but it started to get a little strange towards the end. I had a couple of questions that weren’t answered. The ending of Oasis was interesting and definitely set up for the 2nd book, Limbo.

Limbo wasn’t my favorite book of the series. It started off where Oasis ended and for a little while, the story was interesting. I liked the connection between Phoe and Theo. I wished the author never crossed the line into romance with them. It was done and I felt it colored the story from there on. I got confused about Theo going in and out of virtual reality. To the point where I couldn’t figure out if he was in virtual reality or not. There was no line drawn. I did think that the subplot with the Elders was great but I wished that the author had twisted it a different way. The ending was alright but in no way led up to Haven.

Haven was the best book in the series. It started with a bang and ended on a sweet note. Everything else between was a great read. What was revealed about Oasis was nothing short of unbelievable. There was a big twist revealed towards the end of Haven that made me go “da faq“. It made me question everything that had been written in the book.

How many stars will I give The Last Human trilogy? 3

Why? While a very well written book, I felt that the characters could have had a bit more depth to them. The ending seemed a little rushed and the entire 2nd book dragged, big time.

**I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**

Will I reread? Maybe

Will I recommend to family and friends? Maybe

Age range: Adult

Why? Graphic violence, sex and one scene where a person is euthanized.
