Book Review: #Hacker: The Outlaw Chronicles by @TedDekker @WorthyPub

*I received this book via Worthy Publishing for purposes of review, however all opinions are my own.

Hacker:  The Outlaw Chronicles
by Ted Dekker

About the Book:
"In the latest installment of The Outlaw Chronicles fiction series, best-selling author Ted Dekker plunges readers into the shadowy world of cyber-crime and neuroscience. So begins Hacker, a modern-day parable that examines the staggering world around us, the seen and the unseen, and reminds us that there's far more to who we are than meets the eye. “Just like Eyes Wide Openand Water Walker, the first two books in the series,” Dekker says, “Hacker draws readers in to ask a deeper question: ‘Who am I?’ Nyah is honest throughout the book in searching for the response to that question.” But when the biggest job of protagonist, Nyah’s life goes wrong, she's plunged into a desperate situation with only one way out: one last hack that will either save her or kill her."

My Review:
What an amazing read!  The main character of this story is Nyah, and she is a genius.  Making a living using her brain, Nyah goes for what could be the biggest risk of her life, in an attempt to earn enough money to give her mother the medical attention she needs to save her life.  When it backfires, Nyah has to go into hiding, not only from law efforcement but from the sinister people who are after her for what they think she took.  Turning to her friend Austin, Nyah is drawn into the world of a different kind of hacking.  Delving into a sci-fi sort of storyline, this book takes you to the experimenting of hacking the human mind.  
This is a fast paced story with in depth characters and a story that will keep you guessing and thinking.  I really enjoyed it and the fact that you get to revisit a character from a previous Outlaw Chronicles book although it isn't necessary that you have read any of the other books.  This book can stand alone but you will need to keep an open mind. I wasn't able to put this book down once I started it and finished it in record time.  I recommend this book for anyone that loves fiction and fantasy.
