The first chapter is confusing, with its ‘Primes, Lugs, endemics etc, it becomes clear what these are as the book puts some meat on the bones. The character, Aiden, Palamos and Fig grow in depth and feeling as the book unfolds.
As a YA or Middle grade read, also suitable for the youngster in any adult, I would highly recommend this as must read for Indie readers. In a world where all books need at least 700 pages and a massive backdrop, this is a breath of fresh air, it does everything it should and isn’t padded with masses of unnecessary description.
A well deserved 5 Stars.
