The settings have a grit and toughness to them that really pulls you in and adds a lot of color to the plot.
J. I. Rogers has managed to write a story that is both recognizable and fresh. There is large-scale political intrigue as well as smaller, personal side-plots. It leaves me wondering just enough that I can’t wait for the next installment.
I really enjoyed The Korpes File by J.I. Rogers. I just like a book where a likable outcast takes on a tired socioeconomic system and I have to say, for me, a guy like Tech Nash X. Korpes is as likable a character as they come. He is an outcast and a genetic throwback, but he is a likable outcast, and a talented throwback. He is the guy you want on your team in any situation where winning is important. I can only speak for myself. I’m sure a lot of readers may not like Nash so much, but for me, I liked him from the start, maybe because his boss liked him; I don’t know. What I do know is that as the plot thickened and each choice became even more important, I liked Tech Nash that much more. A character you can empathize with and care about is important in any genre, and I cared about Tech Nash X. Korpes.
All the characters in The Korpes File are written well, whether you like that particular character or not. J.I. Rogers is a skilled writer and I can tell that he has taken the time to hone his craft to perfection. I’m guessing he has a good team backing him up. The plot is tight and very well thought out. As for the setting, you jump into it before you even read page one. There is a map that helps you to imagine this place with ease. The futuristic and gritty setting is a strong pillar of The Korpes File. I thought every aspect of the story was strong, which is why I will be looking for the sequel.
