Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the mid-twenty-first century, American teenagers Jaym, Reya, and D’Shay survive the journey to Africa to become “blenders,” creating children with the native population. While battling corruption and terrorism, Jaym finds himself actually falling in love with his intended partner, Lingana, while Reya’s severe injuries limit and frustrate her, and D’Shay grows into a committed but humanistic warrior. A glossary and detailed cast list will help new readers get up to speed in the Blending Time series, in which issues of social justice are seen through the lens of high-speed, cinematic action. A cliffhanger ending assures the series will continue. Grades 8-12. --Debbie Carton


"For some great action, this can't be beat." Kirkus Reviews

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Got the Kindle version of New Sun(book 2) on Dec. 31st and finished reading on Jan. 3rd. What a great read! I especially enjoyed the further development of the main characters. I hope to see even more elaboration of these characters in Book Three. I even enjoyed the many battles that were definitely satisfying in terms of the outcomes. Nothing like sweet revenge when you're a teenager!
