McKinty is a wonderful storyteller and he has really written something special in this Lighthouse series. I was more familiar with his gritty, gory crime novels but Lighthouse series is completely different. I loved the vivid imagination and that the main characters were teens who have to work together, use history lessons, physics, trigonometry and other sciences to problems solve. McKinty also throws in large helpings of humor that truly made me laugh out loud. Gerald Doyle is a wonderful narrator -- young, old , male, female, Irish, American -- he can do it all.
If you have a youngster who can't quite focus on school, these books may help with that. After all, if you would like to be a valued person during an Intergalactic War, you need to know math, chemistry, history etc, etc, not to mention what to do if you fall in love with an alien ,,, a bit of a sticky wicket that.

Although I am 61 years old I still enjoy a good novel. Adrian McKinty has written a very good one. I will be waiting for the next book.

Bought because of who narrated it and found a trilogy to love
Loved this book it is definitely a young adult book but I am 21 and really enjoyed it as did my aunt who is 50. Jamie is a well written character and the love story between him and Wishaway is sweet.
You would like this book if you liked the looking glass wars, but it is worth getting just to listen to Gerald Doyle’s voice.

Downloaded this to listen to in the car on journeys with my teenage daughter - a really good listen. looking forward to listening to the next installment in the trilogy. Recommend if you like a good yarn that stirs your imagination.
