Stars: 3.5 Somewhere Between Stars
Sophia “Soap” Lazarcheck is a girl genius with a knack for making robots-and for making robots explode. After her talents earn her admission into a secretive university institute, she is swiftly drawn into a conspiracy more than a century in the making. Meanwhile and without her knowledge, her cousin Dean wages a two-fisted war of vengeance against a villainous genius and his unwashed minions.
Separately, the cousins must pit themselves against murderous thugs, experimental weaponry, lizard monsters, and a nefarious doomsday device. When their paths finally meet up, they will need to risk everything to prevent a mysterious technology from bringing civilization to a sudden and very messy end
This was a great read. The plot was interesting and we liked the world that had some science but wasn’t an extremely involved having to look up words all the time in the dictionary kind of science-fiction. There were definitely some great moments where we laughed and many times where we really wanted to know what was going to happen next. The character development could’ve been a little better. We would’ve loved to have known even more about the main characters but this was most especially needed with the secondary characters. It had a great mix of fun coloured lab-coats, science experiments, fun robots and cool gadgets plus a ‘the whole worlds in danger’ fix with some pretty sly-feeling aliens too. All in all a book we would definitely read again. Keep your eyes peeled we will be hosting this author on the blog here in July. 😀
That’s it from the flock!
