Machines of the Little People
The Eve Project: Book 1
Author – Tegon Maus
Tegon Maus takes us on a romp into the mind and products of a genius inventor/scientist, via his not as intelligent brother in law. Ben Harris is a broken and lonely man. His sister died three years ago of cancer. His brother in law disappeared, missing the funeral entirely. Now Roger has reappeared with a new wife who is nearly a copy of Ben’s sister. When the new wife turns up dead as well with Roger in the wind, the chase is on. Government agents and strange little creatures coming out of the walls complicate the race to find Roger and get the truth about what happened.
The author does a great job of feeding us one mini bombshell after another before the whole thing goes nuclear in the end. Where I was tripped up the most was in the proofing. The first chapter or two needed another read through as there were multiple times I was pulled out of the story to reread a section to make sure I was understanding what was going on. Once a few chapters in, these seemed to smooth out.
If you are looking for a short read with wild technological advances wrapped in government conspiracy, grab “Machines of the Little People”. Tegon won’t disappoint you.
