Adventure Between the Pages: Reversal Zone1:00 AM
View Review on Amazon
I have missed Andi and the rest so much. Grace, please do not make me wait so long again! Seriously though, I have been so excited to read the next part of this book, as I am for every book. I pre-ordered it and then had to listen to it on my Kindle one day as I worked on my blog.
This story has a lot more of a classic sci-fi feel to it, with a cloud that causes weird things to happen. It felt like some of the Star Trek episodes, only better, more grounded in science, and with faith to balance everything out.
I love how Andi reacts to everything she goes through. Even though she is the hero, she struggles a lot with emotions and fear. She plain doesn’t want to do some things. She is a character that I think a lot of girls can relate to as well as admire. Perhaps it was a subtle message of the story, but her willingness to do the right thing, even when it wasn’t what she wanted to do, was shown in a powerful way.
There were a couple of moments in this book where things were a bit creepy and could be disturbing for some very sensitive readers. However, I thought they were handled well and added to the strength and believability of the story.
This was a strong, powerful, and exciting installment in the Firmament series. My big complaint? It left me really needing the next book in the series. I am going to be bugging the author until the next book is out, as I really need to know what happens.
I highly recommend this to those who enjoy sci-fi, reluctant heroes, and strong writing.
