  1. My friends, it has been a great year for the IA Series I want to thank the many readers who have partaken and send an invitation to those of you who are in route Union, the final book in the series, has arrived.

  2. An electronic version of this novel was provided free of charge by the author in exchange for an honest review.I finished the first book, IA Initiate, in the IA series a few days ago and couldn t wait to start the 2nd book I started it last night and finished it today at lunch It was all I could think about the whole day John Darryl Winston s writing style is exceptional It drew me into the story even than it did in the first book I found the main character Naz Andersen hugely realistic even wi [...]

  3. Well that was an unexpected ending well maybe not if you watched the clues Not a fan but that s on me.The story is a nice continuation and we are getting some answers from the questions left over from the first book It s once again fast paced with no dull moments and nice character progression although the abilities of the main character are developing way to fast in my opinion, eve if he is what the book makes him to be I would have loved that that aspect has been slowed down a bit or stretched [...]

  5. Initiate was good but BOSS is even better It s shines on every level Great characters Great character development Descriptive but not too much Great job of raising the stakes from book 1 to book 2 Great job of raising stakes as the novel progressed Totally unpredictable Funny at times About as real as it gets Heartbreaking Inspiring It s hard to believe this is only Winston s second novel and first series He possesses a skill that can t be taught If you re your looking for the next great story T [...]

  6. Children are the most precious gift that god can give us and the way that Naz and Meri s guardian spoke to them in the beginning brought out the angry teenager in me and I just wanted to.This story will bring a lot of emotion out in you and you will find yourself crying Angry But mostly you will wish that you could pull these two young people out of the story and hug them until the pain washes away Not saying they are not strong, they are, way stronger than I could ever be.Naz is an extraordinar [...]

  7. The second of the IA series blew my mind, I m still thinking about it a week after reading it My impatient wait for the sequel to IA Initiate paid off and then some B.O.S.S is one of those reads that I couldn t put down I became thoroughly engrossed in the storyline from page one, and as revelations came to light, I was increasingly drawn in and held within the pages Winston paints a clear portrait of life in the Exclave and the challenges and harsh realities that Naz and his fellow teammates fa [...]

  8. The first thing that struck me about this new book is the sharp contrast in the covers Book 2 is dark and ominous making the cover lighter cover for book 1 seem almost cheerful in comparison The cover is your warning that this book is going to transport Naz and the reader to dark places.The story picks up mere days after the last one leaves off With a release of pressure following the events of the previous book, Naz and Meri settle into a slightly normalized existence Naz is convinced to join [...]

  9. Boss is the second installment to John Darryl Winston s young adult IA series In this gripping dystopian urban fantasy, Naz Andersen continues his journey of self discovery Pursued by a mysterious gang called the IA he ironically dreams his salvation is escaping to a well bred school of the same initials, called the International Academy Orphaned, Naz and his wise beyond her years sister, Meri try to dissect the secrets of their family s past and the peculiar powers they believe Naz to possess I [...]

  10. Cinematic like I love it and realistic as real gets Teens will continue to love Winston s universe here with Naz Andersen In Initiate, Naz is only introduced to us Here in B.O.S.S Naz introduces himself And I cannot wait to see what he has to show me next.

  11. IA B.O.S.S picks up where IA Initiate left off, and answers a lot of the questions I had in the first one The writing is smooth and well edited, and the characters still feel very distinct both from each other and from standard YA denizens That s the IA series charm, you see the challenges are mostly the same, there are bad people in the world and someone should do something about it But the point of view of the characters is so different they come at the problem diagonally, never quite doing wh [...]

  12. I cried, and I m not going to say why because I don t want to give anything away But one of the characters reminds me of myself totally I ve never cried reading a book before, even with The Fault In Our Stars which this book blows away I probably just didn t relate to the characters in Fault as much This book kept me emotionally one way or another throughout First there was Soul or Souloman Bender I don t think I ve ever read a funnier character And then there s Harvis When I was in junior high, [...]

  13. I loved John Darryl Winston s debut, IA Initiate , but I love B.O.S.S even Winston does an excellent job of establishing the loving relationship between Naz Andersen and his little sister, Meridian Meri While B.O.S.S moves at a much faster pace then its predecessor, it s this wonderful familial element that keeps the story grounded Naz is faced with his greatest challenge and you feel vested in all of his struggles He also has a way of drawing you into their complicated and fantastical world a [...]

  14. I had the pleasure of beta reading and editing IA B.O.S.S I found it to be a perfect continuation of the first book in the series John has a truly unique voice and concept, and he is a master in authentic dialogue and in writing relatable characters I found myself genuinely caring about Naz and Meri and read with great interest as their stories unfolded I was captivated as Naz learned about his past and about his gifts.IA B.O.S.S is full of heart, determination, heartache, and resolve Be sure to [...]

  15. I love it , it s got that spark It has depth and sadness in it that tells you it s going to be amazing It has some realistic stuff happening in it I shall not spoil it for you, those who read my comments, but you should really read this I hope that the author makes it a trilogy or a four book series

  16. Great middle grade fantasy, but still felt slow at parts BOSS advanced the story pretty well and I m excited to see what happens in book 3 of this series.

  17. The first book in this series, IA Initiate, introduced us to Naz, a teenage boy living in a ghetto with his little sister after both their parents have died Naz, who has no memories from before he came to live in the Exclave, find he has unusual abilities He is able to play chess to an impressive level and perform physical feats with ease He is also very intelligent but chooses to live the easy life, doing just as well as he needs to at school to avoid attention He just wants to be left alone.In [...]

  18. John has continued his masterfully told story of Naz and his sister and will surprise you with a twist that is hard to believe Naz is coming of age in so many ways, emotionally along with learning about his unique abilities.This young man and his little sister are strong young kids, faced to deal with life situations that no one should have to.This YA novel will introduce young readers to a world I pray they do not have to deal with Yet it offers hope and a moral story that will bering his audie [...]

  19. More of Naz revealed.This is the middle story, sad at times but very glad I read it and looking forward to the next part of the story.

  20. First and foremost I have to thank my Uncle John for letting me be part of such a special literary journey It was such a pleasure reading this book and I can t wait to read the next one And hopefully be a junior editor again Insha Allah, Insha Allah Since I got a peak way before the release date I finished this wonderful book a long time ago and I just recently read it again There were parts I liked, parts I loved and parts that intrigued me This book was even better than the first, and I mean W [...]

  21. OMG Naz Andersen, that black superhero returns but better than before I don t want to talk about Meri or I ll get mad The parrot, Tone is in full effect and we finally get a to see Coach Fears in action with his badass Railsplitters team These might be the best scenes in the book BOSS easily rises to the top of my favs list with superpowers and gang stuff, everything really We finally meet D, that s right, the initial D, but I m still in love with Doctor Gwen Unlike the first book I don t hav [...]

  22. This is of the same but even if that makes sense There are powers, characters, relationships, funny scenes, fight scenes there weren t any in the first book and it was still good , a taste of romance You name it and it was of it One thing there was that I wasn t expecting was tears, and I didn t like it while I was reading it, in fact I hated it, but by the end, I loved it All of the questions from book I are answered in book II and there are a few questions that come up in this book that [...]

  23. I haven t read that much YA fantasy, but in my limited experience of it, I have really come to resent the term dystopia and the almost complete absence of hope and downright inhuman cruelty that goes with it I read The Hunger Games, the entire trilogy, with a morbid fascination but not much pleasure at all I came away feeling slightly dirty, and deeply concerned that this sort of thing is now a recipe for selling millions of copies Because, what does that say about us I am very happy to report t [...]

  24. Having enjoyed the first book in John Darryl Winston s dystopian trilogy, IA Initiate, in December last year, I have been looking forward to the second installment, IA Boss Fortunately I was lucky enough to win copies of both in a giveaway Thanks John IA Boss starts pretty much exactly where I A Initiate left off which ensures strong continuity Winston does indulge in recaps of important information, but these are concise and placed at relevant moments so they don t slow the story s pace unneces [...]

  25. I must admit I don t usually read YA supernatural thrillers, but I absolutely loved this book.The author has executed the plot brilliantly about the main protagonist Naz and his younger sister Meri A sequel to IA Initiate, both siblings are orphans trying to make their way through a scary world where they don t know who they can trust Only Naz is a teenager with a difference he has supernatural powers He just needs to believe how powerful he really is to utilize his talents John Winston teaches [...]

  26. Excellent ReadUsually, I don t give 5 star ratings because I always think a story can be improved, but this one exceeded my expectations I didn t realize this was a book in a series until I looked up the author after I read this book, but that in no way hindered the flow of magic the author created I m looking forward to reading the entire series.

  27. I m not a big reader but since I have to read I try to read something thats fun and I can relate to This was it I felt like I was watching a movie I can t wait for the next book in the series.

  28. Great read Deeply emotional Highly charged This is a worthy continuation of Naz s journey Highly recommended.
