The characters were simply amazing. When dealing with alien characters it can be difficult to make them relatable and still maintain their alien characteristics. Mr. Cleveland has done a remarkable job of creating alien characters that are believable, and downright scary at times (giant spider-like aliens, good lord!) who also have very humane qualities that make you either love, hate or feel some type of emotion for them.
This is a young adult novel, yet it really doesn't read as one. I'd safety call it an adult novel other than the fact the man character is a teenager. The language is certainly adult level reading and there was nothing in it that made me feel like I was reading one of my kids' books. They would certainly enjoy it as much as I did, but I feel it's definitely appropriate for either audience.
The book is very well edited and I only found two minor things that needed to be fixed. I was impressed.
The book stands alone and doesn't leave off on a cliffhanger. I am always glad when an author doesn't leave me hanging. I will definitely be looking at other works by Mr. Cleveland.
The essence of the story is there is a 13 year old boy whose parents "died" in a space mission 5 years earlier. He finds aliens in his grandfather's barn and is abducted on a mission to save his parents. He meets many fascinating and terrifying hurdles in the path, though. The book was really well thought out and I found myself "in" the story. There are books I start reading and just cannot go on, but this one I looked forward to picking up and didn't want to put it down.
Quick things I liked:
Mostly lack of profanity...and what was used I would label as mostly minor (pissed and the like). It was a minimum and I love that.
Excellent plot and character development. Good twists. Some expected and some not. I am going to recommend this to friends for good, clean fiction.
Emotive description. I got into it and choked up (we have an 8 year old boy) when he was reunited with his parents and I was so sad when Leonidas (one of the alien abductors who were good guys) left him...but it was so well thought out and written that I understood why.
Cons: I wanted to keep reading ;). It is 12:33am and I normally go to bed at 11. We have two kids and one is a toddler and she wears me out. So, that is a testament to the good writing.
I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Honestly, I lead a very busy life with small children right now and we homeschool and I have many other responsibilities. If this book was not good I would not have read it cover to cover. It is very good!
I thought that I had found two flaws in the plot but I was wrong. Upon reading the plan to save the human captives, it seemed that Luke was not needed, so why did Simon and Leonidas risk bringing him from earth? I should have known better. As the story developed, the rescue would not have worked without Luke. The other perceived flaw was in Luke's capture by two bounty hunters/slavers who claimed that he was a runner from the pit. Later we learn that runners are executed but Luke was instead put to work in the pit. Luke's captors had other captives. Apparently these were not runners but captives to be sold into slavery and Luke was just sold along with them.
I particularly enjoyed the ending with its humor and promise of a very interesting life ahead for Luke.
I was asked to read and review this book. At this time the kindle edition is free on Amazon.
