While I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when I began listening to Fluorescence: Fire Starter, I can honestly say that I was not disappointed by what I found. Usually science fiction isn't exactly my cup of tea, though I'm not rigidly opposed to it. I just prefer more of a magical, fantasy type story. But this title definitely has an intriguing concept and has me wondering what will happen next, especially with the bit of a bombshell that drops at the end. ((Don't worry, no spoilers here.))
Overall, the concept of the aliens and their struggle to save their own race by manipulating humans is one that I am anxious to learn more about... Because let's face it. That can't possibly end well for the humans, right? I want to know what they're really up to, which of course means I'm going to have to continue reading the series. And I am happy to do so after this first installment.
I will admit. There were a few occasions where I rolled my eyes because the characters were being “dumb kids” but... That's because they ARE dumb kids. I think that's a sign of a job well done. The characters were believable to the point that my reaction was to think they were being silly teenagers instead of just not being able to accept what they were doing or thinking. Especially the points where they were letting their raging hormones drive them-- which I'll take this moment to point out that the book is actually rather clean with a bit of mild language and a heavy makeout session being as far as anything really got.
I listened to the entire book in one evening and was a little surprised when it finished and I realized how much time I had let slip away from me. I fully intend to queue up the second installment to download overnight so that I can start it after my morning chores tomorrow.
Oh, and a note about the author's performance of narrating the audiobook for Fire Starter... I think she does an amazing job. And if you think this one was well-read, than you should definitely also check out her book titled “Dark Diary” because it is even more phenomenal.
