Division Zero by Matthew S. Cox
(Division Zero #1)
Published by: Curiosity Quills Press
Publication date: March 7th 2014
Genres: cyberpunk, New Adult, Paranormal
Most cops get to deal with living criminals, but Agent Kirsten Wren is not most cops.
A gifted psionic with a troubled past, Kirsten possesses a rare combination of abilities that give her a powerful weapon against spirits. In 2418, rampant violence and corporate warfare have left no shortage of angry wraiths in West City. Most exist as little more than fleeting shadows and eerie whispers in the darkness.
Kirsten is shunned by a society that does not understand psionics, feared by those who know what she can do, and alone in a city of millions. Every so often, when a wraith gathers enough strength to become a threat to the living, these same people rely on her to stop it.
Unexplained killings by human-like androids known as dolls leave the Division One police baffled, causing them to punt the case to Division Zero. Kirsten, along with her partner Dorian, wind up in the crosshairs of corporate assassins as they attempt to find out who – or what – is behind the random murders before more people die.
She tries to hold on to the belief that no one is beyond redemption as she pursues a killer desperate to claim at least one more innocent soul – that might just be hers.
Born in a little town known as South Amboy NJ in 1973, Matthew has been creating science fiction and fantasy worlds for most of his reasoning life. Somewhere between fifteen to eighteen of them spent developing the world in which Division Zero, Virtual Immortality, and The Awakened Series take place. He has several other projects in the works as well as a collaborative science fiction endeavor with author Tony Healey.

Wow!!! That is the first thought that went through my mind. I love this book. The story is wonderful and so well-written it is easy to fall in love with. The story follows Kirsten as she tries to solve a case where dolls seem to be going crazy and randomly killing people. Kirsten is a psionic and has the ability to see ghosts and interact with them. She can also converse telepathically and read people’s minds. We are also given a glimpse into Kirsten’s childhood and the reasons behind who she is today.
Kirsten’s abilities have her shunned by people in general as they react to her with fear. There are very few people who like her and stay with her and thus leads to her feeling of loneliness. We are also given a glimpse into a world where technology has evolved to such an extent that society is completely dependent on it for everything. This is just one example of how the world could be so many years down the line. This paranormal fiction will have you believe in the existence of ghosts and Kirsten’s struggle to accept religion, the existence of god and the difference between good and evil in a person will get you thinking.
There is some amount of philosophy that the author has subtly discussed through the book without coming across as preachy. The author has beautifully crafted this story with the right amount of suspense and twists that will have the reader surprised. A gripping plot and a wonderful writing style lend more credit to the author’s work and make this story worth the read.
Grishma, accompanied by her father and four month old baby, boards the train to Delhi to join her husband Praveen. She decides to give him an unexpected visit. Little does she know that her journey will end in havoc to her life. 19 years later, Grishma’s daughter Jyothi, longing for her father’s love and support, determines to search for him, despite her mother’s strong protests. Will Praveen accept her as his daughter?
This is the story of Jyothi’s pursuit of parental love, which she considers as her legitimate right.
