Another fantasy novel that is just out of this world!
Sean and Dillon Kirrel are twin brothers with special abilities. They can transmit their bodies between different worlds and also move their spirits without their bodies to talk to one another. They have helped prevent an alien invasion, but now that the fun is over, they have to return to their own blend of monotony. Sean must return to school to learn civic lessons for his future political career within the realm. Dillon goes back to military training, but also finds this a little boring now without real action. Top that off that both boys have recently broken up with their girlfriends and you’ve got some serious issues. But when Dillion’s ex, Carey, contacts them after her cousin has been abducted to another realm, they realize this is just the thing they need. That is until they both get arrested for an unsanctioned transit. Will they be able to get themselves out of this one and save Carey’s cousin?
Back to the shape shifting worlds from the mind of Thomas Locke with some of our favorite characters introduced earlier this year. Just when you think things couldn’t get more different, Locke throws a wrench into the works and you find yourself amazed with the newness of the places you’ve already been. Sean and Dillon are back and their typical teenage boy selves with some advances in powers. I hated to see the relationships end, but what can you do? And doesn’t Professor Kaviti just rub you the wrong way throughout the book?
I highly recommend reading the first book Recruits before jumping into this one so that you can get the full back story. But for a fun sci-fi series, give this one a try.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
