Review: A Chip in His Shoulder (Falling Sky #1) by L.A. Witt

A Chip in His Shoulder (Falling Sky, #1)


“Contract killer” is a fitting job for a vampire, and it suits Liam just fine. Cast down from the wealth and status of the Sky for taking a human lover, Liam lurks in the poor and pollution-choked Gutter, killing to survive. Between his natural strengths and his Cybernetix mods, no mark has ever escaped him.

Liam’s ex-lover Daniel is the heir to Cybernetix—and its greatest threat. Horrified by people less man than machine and the exploitation of Gutter factory workers, he’d rather destroy Cybernetix than inherit it . . . if his father doesn’t destroy him first.

Years of anger and a heap of mods have kept Daniel and Liam apart. When Liam is hired to slaughter a man in his glass Sky tower, he walks right into a Daniel-shaped trap. Daniel’s father has betrayed them both, and only by working together can Daniel and Liam survive the coming day. They have no reason to trust each other, but as the dawn looms, a bargain that began with the simple urge to live soon reminds them of the love they once shared. Can they find each other again, or will the Cybernetix assassins find them first?




I started reading this book a little unsure if I was going to like it. It took me few pages to realize how wrong I was. I really liked it. I found the plot very interesting.

The main characters were great, I loved them both and the story behind so much hate, was fantastic. I do feel like I would like to know more of their history, but I liked the just fine right now.

It had nice twists and a perfect pace, it also had some great actions moments. The feelings between them felt honest, but there wasn’t too much romance involved. The antagonist also felt like an interesting character, I definitely looking forward to know him a little better. I’m intrigued by this plot and I’ll be reading the next book as soon as I can.

One thing I didn’t liked about it was the vampire part, I think it was unnecessary. I have nothing against vampires, they’re not my favorite heroes, but I don’t hate them either. The thing is I felt the story would work perfectly even without that, and I would appreciate a bit more.
