Comment: I'm into Sci-Fi lately and I was really excited to read this book. It's written with a lot of energy and it has some great action sequences that are described very well. While the story itself is very original, the result isn't always as original. Sometimes it felt like it was made up in a short period of time. I expected a little more from that. But it is a very entertaining thriller, with some very likeable characters. Off course John is very sympathetic and so is Sarah, although she sounds a little too good to be true. I liked Sam the most. A loyal friend. I always like those characters in books. Overall I enjoyed it very much and I will probably continue reading the series.
Rating: 3,5/ 5
