I could not have picked a better book to be doing a review on for my 300th post on this blog, I never thought I would get this far or have a journal that is apparently going to become full of books from authors, already have 48 pages with books from them. Thank you all for following and reading my reviews, you guys are awesome! And a big thank you to Jo Ho for contacting me and allowing me the pleasure of reading this amazing book. Now then, on to my review.
Blurb: Fourteen-year old Chase Ryder has been living rough on the streets of New York for months – a harrowing experience yet still better than what she endured at home.
When she and recently widowed vet, Sully, rescue a super intelligent Collie, Chase finally finds herself part of the loving family unit she has always craved, but every display of Bandit’s special skills brings them one step closer to the mercenary billionaire who created him… and he wants his expensive experiment back.
With the enemy’s personal SWAT team out for blood, a devastating turn of events finds them running for their lives as they fight to save one of their own.
Review: This was very surprising but I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. When I saw that there was 148 chapters, I admit that I got a little anxious but, the chapters were short and to the point, making it a fast paced, action-packed and emotional story.
The author e-mailed me saying that if I liked the Maximum Ride series that I would like this book and she wasn’t wrong.
The cover is interesting, not really something that would completely catch my eye though. The pace was perfect though for the plot, there wasn’t a boring moment yet it wasn’t just full of action.
The only problem that I really had with the book was that chapter 31 was blank but I’m not going to take away a star for that, the book was just that good.
I’m also kind of torn, I’m happy with the way things ended but I’m kind of sad that this isn’t a series, though I’m not really sure a series can be made from this. At least there’s no questions left unanswered.
I would definitely recommend to teens and adults, especially those who are also fans of the Maximum Ride series. It isn’t kids who can fly but I believe it’s just as good.
Thank you for reading my review and making my 300th post possible.
