"Different from Matthew Reilly but great."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this book purely because I saw Matthew Reilly had a new book that I hadn't read. I was surprised the book was written from the first-person perspective of a teenage girl because his other books are third-person omniscient. This did make it harder for me to become immersed at first but once the ball got rolling, as it quickly does with Matthew Reilly, I couldn't put it down and read the bulk of it in one sitting. I would recommend the book to anyone who likes Matthew Reilly and it could also be a really good introduction to his writing for people might be turned off by the action-packed adventures of his other military characters.

"Light reading"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Typical Matthew Reilly. However as this book aimed at a younger audience it is good entertainment. Readers who are familiar with author might find the book predictable. Good book to be introduced to Matthew Reilly or as light reading

"Fantastic reading"
