Editorial Reviews


How amazing that scientists are already beginning to make progress towards creating biological computers! Computing research from 3 weeks before Forbidden Earth was published 

From the Author

It was a great experience writing this book, it all started about a year back, we were toying with futuristic ideas that would make a great movie plot, and Forbidden Earth happened! Hope you enjoy it.

Excellent novel for such a young author. I liked the character of Dylan the best. Kind of a person who gets the job done and does not speak much. The back story needs some developing and can actually be a good story for a prequel. The end seemed a bit sudden, but is a great one, nonetheless, and leaves the reader thinking what is to come...

So I am in middle school, and I was very excited to read a novel written by someone my age. It had an interesting premise, and I was interested to read the book, even though I'm not a sci-fi fan. So during the last week of school, I easily devoured the book.
Sabina Anand is a great storyteller, but her writing needs some work. She should try to work more on putting the description in the narration, like saying, "Macy's brown eyes alighted on the beautiful sky" or "Dylan brushed back his floppy brown hair." That way you don't interrupt the story with describing a new character. There were also some spelling errors and grammar errors, but very few.
The plotline was good, though the two years between Macy's decision to settle with Dylan and Tim and Leslie's decision to go back to Forbidden Earth could have been handled over more efficiently. I'm glad that things didn't get easy for the characters for too long. They experienced plenty of setbacks, like Macey not being in the same area where the spacecraft first landed, and the cell phone connection being cut off.
Overall this was an excellent read, and I'm sure Sabina will be a great author. She could revise this novel and publish it again, or even write a sequel.
