I loved Cidney Swanson’s Rippler series so when I was given the chance to read this book for review I took it. Now, I’m not a big Sci-Fi reader. I don’t mind Sci-fi in movie/television form, but its not normally what I gravitate to for reading material. However, I am so glad I read this book!
This book caught me from the first page and I couldn’t stop reading it whenever I had the chance to read. I enjoyed the concept, the writing and pace of the book, the characters, the story and futuristic descriptions. This book excelled in adventure and the story took some nice twists and turns. Do I want to continue reading this series even though I’m not big on Sci-Fi, heck yeah!
If you like a great story, an interest in a futuristic world, great characters and adventure then I’d highly recommend this book for those pre-teen and older.
