Take a hefty dose of action and adventure with a feisty heroine who is blind, but also has unusual powers. Add a touch of romance. Stir in missing kids. Season with the exotic planet of Mars. And what do you have? A must read novel, of course.
Author L. M. Preston's novel for young adults, The Pack, contains all of these ingredients and more. Because she's blind, most people believe sixteen-year-old Shamira is helpless. Little do they know the powers burning inside her that she barely can control. When her younger brother, David, is kidnapped, like other children of the Security Force Elite parents on Mars have been, Shamira will need all her strength and cunning to rescue them.
The Pack is a story about family, bravery, and overcoming evil. The characters are well developed, each with his or her distinct personality. Shamira is a realistic heroine with faults as well as good points. Her love for her brother is a tender part of the story amid the fighting and grittier part of the story. This novel will appeal to both boys and girls who enjoy a good read with a protagonist they'll be cheering for to succeed.
Beverly Stowe McClure, author of YA historical novel Caves, Cannons, and Crinolines
I really enjoyed this novel for the first few chapters. After that, whoever was editing this book seemed to take a mini-vacation, since the writing just went downhill. The idea of the story was really good (kids being kidnapped on Mars leads to other kids forming an underground uprising) but that is where it stops. There are a lot of editing mistakes, but nowhere on my copy does it say that this is an uncorrected proof, so I'm assuming this is what people who buy it will see. There was a lot of dialogue and it seemed forced most of the time. The kids didn't speak like kids and some of the lines seemed to come from adult romance novels. Some of the action scenes tell us they were action-y instead of actually being action-y. The love interest in this book bordered on obsessive, he was pretty odd. Really though I had high hopes for this novel when I began, but was quickly and thoroughly disappointed again and again. Maybe someone else will enjoy this novel, the bottom line is I didn't and I can't recommend it.
"She often walked this way home listening for all the familiar sounds."
"It was night out, but it made no difference to Shamira, for she lived in the dark most of her life."

LM Prestion knows how to captivate her audience. I must admit that I am not much into Sci-Fi but I loved this book. Right away from page one, I fell in love with the kick butt heroine, Shamira and loved her even more by the end!! She is a spectacular character and I feel that I know her and know what she is feeling. I also loved her kick butt sidekick, Valens. This is an awesome must read for all genres and ages full of action and suspence around every corner!! Thank you, LM, for this tantilizingly facinated story of life and crime on Mars!!
I liked the action but I was wondering why the kids wouldn’t tell the elite security or Shamira tell her parents what they found. When they reached that secret building wouldn’t it make more sense for adults to handle it? At least they would have had more success and could free the prisoners.
And I’m all for superpowers and advance technology but I can’t really buy that a kid can come up with such devices, some he even improved overnight, when the rest of the society had no idea. It’s one thing if they stole them or even if his dad was a mad scientist but you cannot have a kid come up with artillery of gadgets that no one else has ever seen.
I really liked the premises for this novel but I couldn’t get pass the fact that these were kids. Some of them as young as 10 year old. It just didn’t make sense to me until Shamira finally contacted her parents and they let her in on the game. I was really pleased that top security wasn’t as stupid as it seemed from the beginning.
