The perfect way to describe this book is to say it’s a starter for the series. As the author assured me with a list of upcoming books in this series, this is the one that sets it all. And thinking of the number of series I’ve read, this one is a sure one of the first books in any series.
We get to not only meet various characters, but we also come to find bits about their lives and actions, establishing a connection that I would like to see unfold. The well-paced narration and smartly described environments made sure that the plot and characters stay interesting during the read.
Coming to the plot itself, I was unsure of what to expect from the cover with the face of a tribal man. But as it turns out, our protagonist Maggie is a serious programmer who’s the daughter of a businessman and sister of a famous lawyer. We get to follow her and her friend Sandy with a dream to program a game called ‘The Inhabitants of the Uninhabited Island’. And then, the story starts to fall into place with us discovering the lifestyle of the tribe (from the cover & dream) and their powers.
With a mixture of science-fiction, programming, tribal life and fantasy, this book turns out to be a fresh one in the pile of stories I’ve been coming across nowadays. So, I didn’t want this to end as soon as it ended and with that cliffhanger that will hook you on the series, I’m eager to see how the plot goes on.
