On the whole I really enjoyed this book,

My feelings were a little Nebulous about this book at first.

Forgive me, I can’t resist a good play on words no matter how bad.

On the whole I really enjoyed this book, though I went in expecting typical YA fiction, and found that it’s really a children’s fantasy (I would recommend this to 8-15 year-olds). It’s was nice not having to wade through all the hormones typical in YA.

It begins with the typical grade school problems, and the emotions of a boy who has just lost a grandfather, after previously losing his father in a freak firefighting accident, but the tension quickly escalates. Jethro “Jet” Black discovers a relic of his grandfather’s, and things get more complicated from there. With cyber implants, spaceships and kidnapping, there’s plenty to keep the plot moving. There are scenes of Christianity at intervals, displayed in the small town families affected by the kidnappings. Littlefield writes very believable children, none are too smart for their age, and the characters are mostly endearing. The rest, of course, aren’t supposed to be.

The overall production quality is decent, consistent volume, no strange effects on the voices. Every word is clear and understandable.

Ray Greenley does a pretty good job. Initially I didn’t care for his narration, his lower vocal range sounded a little forced and scratchy, but he only used it during the prologue. After that his natural reading voice quickly grew on me; and the voices he used for the kids are all well done. I would imagine a child’s voice to be one of the harder parts of narrating. I don’t really care for his emotional/crying scenes but those are always difficult to pull off naturally.

All in all, I went from thinking I might not want to read this book to looking forward to it’s sequel.
