3 STARS: I Liked It

Noah lives for piloting spaceships through time, dodging killer robots and saving Earth’s animals from extinction. Life couldn’t be better. However, the twelve-year-old time traveler soon learns it could be a whole lot worse. His mom is abducted and taken to thirty-first century Mars; his dad becomes stranded in the Ice Age; and Noah is attacked at every turn by a foe bent on destroying a newly habitable, post-apocalyptic Earth.

Traveling through time in the family’s immense spaceship, Noah, a paraplegic from birth, must somehow care for the thousands of animals on board, while finding a way to rescue his parents. Along the way, he discovers his mother and father aren’t who he thought they were, and there is strength inside him he didn’t know he had.

My Review:
This book was fun! I rarely read sci-fi or books with characters that are twelve, but I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this book.

Noah is physically a unique character because he was born without the use of his legs. He would be in a wheelchair, but since this book is set in the future he has something much cooler than that. His magchair hovers and gives him great mobility. He can also wear a kind of suit that allows him to walk and move around.

Noah is a great twelve year old kid who is an amazing pilot. He has two older siblings 14 and 16 years old who also help on the A.R.C. The A.R.C. is a gigantic space ship where all the animal pairs live. All the animals on earth had died in the future, and humans had to move to Venus or Mars. Noah and his family go back in time to rescue two of every animal species. Their goal is to eventually release the animals on earth.

A quarter of the way through the book a character named Adina enters the scene. This is where things really started picking up for me. Adina is also twelve, fun, smart, and strong. She is looking for adventure and a great friend to Noah. I felt like before Adina entered the scene Noah was lonely which wasn't as fun to read.

I recommend this book to tweens and young teens boy or girl. Parents you should read it too because you'll enjoy it. Get this book for your kids that want to read a futuristic adventure in space.

Happy Reading!

D. Robert PeaseTHE AUTHOR
D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn't been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer's Sirens. It's not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters.
