Having loved two series that this author wrote, I was both eager and hesitant to dive into this series, eager because his writing is amazing and hesitant because there were some pretty bad reviews about this series. But I needn't have worried, this book was amazing!! I read some of the negative reviews and a lot of them were complaining that the science was sketchy, well I didn't think so. I enjoyed all the sciency bits and thought they were done well. I'm not a scientist and really don't care if something wasn't 100% right, the plot of this felt right to me and that's all that matters in the long run ;)
Anyway, plot wise this was incredibly fast paced and exciting. The action starts right away and it's breakneck speed from there. When the gang leave the biosphere, they come out to a world that's changed forever. I loved how the author portrayed the aliens and found myself quite frightened by them, especially with what they were doing! He has created a unique spin on the classic invading alien story and I raced through this to see how it'd end.
One thing I've seen with this author, is his amazing ability to write great and memorable characters. This one is no different!! Sophie is one strong, fierce main character and I was rooting for her the whole way through. She is smart, confident, headstrong, and relatable. Each of the characters are well written and developed and I pretty much liked them all!!
In all, this surpassed my expectations. I wasn't sure what to expect from it, but what I got was an exciting, edge of your seat read. It drew me in and I devoured it and I'm so looking forward to the next one!! It's movie worthy good! If you're on the fence about reading this, don't be. Give it a go... you might be pleasantly surprised! It's fiction, it's there to be enjoyed :)
The book is the kickoff of a sci-fi series about an extra-terrestrial threat that arrives to earth with deadly consequences. The story documents what is perhaps humanity’s last hope of survival and makes no bones about it: humans are not perfect even in the apocalypse.
Having read my fair share of NSS books I must also say this: I am amazed at the distinct feel each of his series has. Often an author might fall into a trap where the narrative feels similar to other books, not connected to the same universe. Yet Nicholas Sansbury Smith makes Orbs unique just like Trackers and the Extinction series. Now onward to book 2!
This is not your typical monster tale or alien invasion story. There are little twists and turns throughout that leave you guessing about what will happen next. I love a book I can't figure out in the first 3 chapters!
Orbs is a wild roller coaster ride. The story is intriguing and the characters are real and well developed. The description engaged all my senses and made this world come fully alive for me. It was creepy and scary! I swear that "scratch, scrap" made my skin crawl and caused nightmares!
When I finished book one I could not wait to get book two and then book three. I am so excited about the soon to arrive Book Four in the series. I felt there was more story to tell after the end of book three.
I am also looking forward to the new Audible Version of the entire series narrated by Bronson Pinchot.
