Strong, fearless female protagonist - 💪
Hunky romantic interest (in this case more than one - that happens when you're one of the last females on the planet) - 💏
Scary, plausible (well, at least in a futuristic world) reasons for the dystopian future mankind has ended up with - 😱
A well written and edited story that was exciting to read - 📓🎆
I would not consider this to be a YA book even though there are young people in it. There are very few women left on earth and that causes many problems. There are hints of rape in the book (not too descriptive), there are teens with hormonal urges (some of them descriptively acted on), there are scenes of violence.
I do wish there had been a bit more world building. The story supposedly takes place in Colorado but you couldn't tell it by the descriptive passages in the story. They were pretty nondescript. I love Colorado and it would have been nice to recognize some landmarks in the prose.
I enjoyed the storyline and it felt believable and this author's style of writing will guarantee that I read more of her books in the future, especially the rest of this series.
I liked the younger boys in the story, especially Tito, and the feeling of family amongst this ragtag group of orphans and misfits.
Farrell’s new adult dystopian novel, Bait, combines survival with teenage angst in such a way that it comes across naturally. She describes the environment so that the reader can easily picture it. The pace ebbs and flows with a rhythm that keeps the reader from losing interest. This book is well written and has plenty of plot twists, has some very likeable and not so likeable characters, and was hard to put down.
The story is told from Jackie’s point of view. Her strong character, as chief of the crew, is balanced with the struggles of her new found emotions as a young woman falling in love. She’s had to grow up without the guidance of her mother or other females. You can feel the genuine affection she has for all of her young crew in the way she mother’s them when needed and gives them orders them like soldiers to provide structure.
As the book unfolds most questions are answered. With this being the first book in The Nanobot Wars series I am hoping that the remaining questions will be revealed quickly in the second book. If those questions had been answered within this first book, Bait could have easily been a stand-alone book. Even so, I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
