Don't let the YA theme stop you
on December 17, 2012
Yes, this book has a Young Adult Sci-Fi theme. The main Character Rys has known only war for half of his 17 years. He started training for War as a child, and has fought a losing battle to save his home for 3 years. After his colony is destroyed he and his teams are taken in by their allies. Because they are young they are placed into high schools to assimilate. As a back drop to all of this, it seems that their implacable foe has now set their sights on his new home. Can his teams maintain their cover as high school students and ferret out the evil plans of their enemies?
All the characters from the main two to the supporting cast are well fleshed out with distinct personalities. Lots of good dialog and a fast paced story. This is a feel good story and not a gritty mess of blood, guts, war, violence or sex. PG rated at best for some mild violence. Not even PG-13.
