As I had said when reading book1, Sci-Fi is usually not in my genre but I had loved it and with that said on to my review of The Pack Retribution.
WOW.....This book started out with a bang and the hits just kept coming. This an awesomely fabulous Sci-Fi with lots of action and of course teens! I am totally in love with the the characters, they each have their own awesome personaliities that just makes the book that much more wonderful!! I totally LOVED Shamira and Valens. Those two just made the story unique. Of course, I loved to read about awesome lead female heroines, that just makes me feel like I could do anything too if it came down to protecting myself and the ones I loved!! This is MUST read YA Sci-Fi Action that will not disappoint!! Thank you, LM, for the oppportunity to read and review this wild ride and fun book!!
I like how Shamira makes mistakes and learns from them. Hope there will be a 3rd book!
Great Fun Read!
The Pack: Retribution is the sequel to Preston's first book The Pack. In the first book Shamira and her group of friends are forced to save all the children on mars from the bad guys, I won't tell you if they succeed or not but the second book picks up with Shamira and her clan going on another mission.
I loved Shamira's character in the first book, and I still love her character now! She's so strong but we get to see her change and grow from the first book too the second. She has trust issues because she's always been alone but in the second book its a little bit easier for her to change and let people in which I like. Preston did a great job making her characters dynamic.
The action in this book was phenomenal! There was never a dull moment. Shamira and the group were always fighting off the bad guys and with style too. It's always refreshing to have all kinds of action in a book. Especially when the action is coming from a group of teenagers that's the best.
The setting of this book is on Mars. How cool is that? I liked reading how Preston described Mars I thought it was pretty interesting, and if I was to think of Mars her description of it was pretty darn close. Overall the book gets a 4 out of 5 stars. In places it was a little slow but I enjoyed the characters and the action a lot!
The opening easily acclimates the reader back into the story from where Book I left off. After the first few pages, I had a good feeling who Shamira was, as well as her doubts and fears. (BTW - I'm a name freak and I still love the name Shamira!) It was obvious that she'd grown from the first book, but that lots of emotional growth was yet to come. That's what struck me most about this second book. As quickly as the story moved forward through physical action, the emotional threads of the characters changing and developing pressed the story forward even to a greater degree.
There's an inner wavering that plagues Shamira, question and doubts. During Book I, her warrior lifestyle fit her more easily, primarily because she had nothing to lose, no one she cared about risking. But this time is different. She's made friends, real friends, and the thought about putting them in harms way hurts and gives her pause. Shamira's fears about letting people 'in' is a constant pendulum accentuating the struggle between her desire for a career as a leader and her love of values, and building a future with the one boy who she would trust with anything. This added realistic tension.
Preston did a wonderful job of exploring the emotions of family life, friendships, and examining the different dynamics.
The world created is vivid with lines such as ...the large metal cylinder that rose up out of the ground... The tale climaxes with a blinding twist, so unexpected that I was unable to stop reading until the very last word.
Lastly, despite this read being Sci Fi, there is a contemporary feel that threads the emotional parts to the techy elements. I found that an appealing surprise.
