I liked the changing dynamics of Emery’s relationships throughout the story. Whether it’s actual high school friends or the shadowy people she begins to work with, the relationships are engaging but tenuous, mirroring the changing social groups most teens face during high school but with much greater stakes at risk. The author creates an interesting heroine in Emery, who we see growing and changing as she navigates her relationships and trials.
There are moments where I felt she was too naive. If the world exists like the author writes it, how did she not know of the division? How does it not mess with her physically, etc? I think that it could have been explained a little better.
But with that said, I found it intriguing and scary. Intriguing because it makes you think about what you would do if you were thrown into the situation. Would you be able to succeed? Could you love someone in the middle of the battle? Who can you trust? Plus the idea of technology progressing and in different ways makes you think of the possibilities for the future. I say scary because honestly, how different will life REALLY be? It's kind of like my grandparents turning their noses up at cell phones and other technology now. Will we be stuck in our ways too? It's a great book to entertain you and keep you thinking about changes long after you put it down. It's a pretty good read.
Emery and Rhea and a new boarding school, boys and teenage life. Having your world flipped on it's end....
Torin and his hacking skills, Theo and Naia with the secrecy....
Despite some rushed moments the bouncing from character to character (which is something I normally do not like) didn't bother me a bit.
This book promises not to disappoint. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
There were moments where Alpha Drive borrowed heavily from the wave of Young Adult literature flooding the genre today. I thought this was an excellent choice. If it isn't broken, why fix it? The strong female lead immediately drew comparisons to Hunger Games or Divergent. Mix in the alternative reality angle and you have one interesting novel that opens up the floor to what can be a potentially very entertaining trilogy.
Not so much pretentious per say however The Alpha Drive does a good job of not taking itself too seriously. It is aware that the concept is unique but not groundbreaking. This is important in order to set the tone and allow the reader the opportunity to get more out of it. Without it, on the surface level, it appears Kristen Martin is re-using the concept that is done before. Instead, Dormance is just part of Emery's story. Entertaining, original, and fun, the Alpha Drive is a fun ride.
