Book Review: Honey

How far would you go for the perfect body? What if there was a miracle drug that let you achieve rapid weight loss without exercise or dietary changes? People taking it are happier than ever...but the drug is harvested from unsuspecting endurance athletes whose lives are shattered as a result.

The plot of Honey is told through a courthouse setting with the details emerging in trial-like fashion. I was intrigued by the moral and ethical dilemma presented, as well as the concept of a miracle drug that lets ordinary people become extraordinary athletes. A thriller, mystery, and science fiction all rolled into one, Honey kept me interested from beginning to end. I can see Honey appealing to a broad audience - young and old, male and female. I look forward to reading more stories from Daniel Erwin.

**Full Disclosure: My brother-in-law wrote the book, my sister is on the cover, and I just re-used the review that I posted on Amazon. That being said, I honestly think this is a terrific read that would appeal to the young adult crowd. Plus, it is only $2.99 in the Kindle store!**
