First Thought when Finished: The Dragon Factory by Jonathan Maberry was wicked smart and brutally twisty.
Read It File It: I am in love with the Joe Ledger! There I said it. It is probably best to get that out there and acknowledged. During the Dragon Factory, I was biting my lip, clicking my nails against the desk, and closing my eyes as things got tense. These books are such intense rides and this one was a little heartbreaking. I recommend these to any one who enjoys a good mystery with a little bit of fringe!

Going to admit that it took 2 books for me to fall in love with Ray’s voice for Joe but now I adore it. Sometimes it just takes a bit and then it clicks!
Final Thoughts: Bring on Book 3!
