This is another awesome book by author John David Anderson about diversity and friendship despite hardship and differences. I love how he can bring the eclectic of characters together and have it all workout in the end. Don't get me wrong there are sad and funny parts mixed in but things seem to work there way out even when they look bleak at times, and that is nice. Sam had to be my favorite character and wanted to take him home myself from the beginning, but I am glad I didn't, thank you Mr. Anderson from me for Sam. This was a great book and I hope it answers a lot of wishes, I hope it answers mine.

This was a fast paced, suspenseful, non stop action book, with wonderful characters. I had the audio narrated by a very talented Joe Hempel, who makes you feel as if you are there in the midst of all of the turmoil with these people fighting along side them, helping them. It is so much fun to listen to it with all the different voices, so if you get a chance to listen to it you should, but this book was awesome either way.

This might be book thirteen but Mr. Lukeman has not let up yet, this one has just as much action and suspense as the first book, the characters are awesome and believable. The audio narrated by Jack de Golia is wonderful, and not to be missed, he has a voice for each character and he can draw you into the story like you are one of the team right there with them helping with assignment. I can't wait to get the next audio these are so good.

This is a wonderful military science fiction book/audio. This is a highly entertaining book, I had the audio version with voice actor Rebecca Sternberg, who does a awesome job bringing this world alive for the listener and making you feel as though you are there and part of the crew family. I really enjoyed this as a audio and can not wait for more.

This a novella so there is only so much I can say without giving it away, but I will say it is action packed and was so much fun to read. It is worth the time and hopefully the author will use this short as a stepping stone for a full length book later so there can be more detail and more fill in the blanks. But even with that said you will still like this if you like this kind of suspenseful military/police action type book.

This was a action packed, non stop suspense, all round wonderful book. Even though most of the main characters are girls there is plenty of fighting and blood from the Bloody Baroness to make any guy happy. This is a great diverse book for all and it had me all the beginning and now I just can not wait for the next to see what happens next.

This is a wonderful diverse book, also very suspenseful and has action as well. This book is exciting as well as haunting at times. It is a book you won't want to miss, so don't let it go. You will always be rooting for Corey to help tell Kyra's story.

Donovan is stuck between a rock and hard place. He did something pretty cool but can’t tell anyone or he will get into trouble, but his friend, genius nerd, Noah was there and decides he will say he did it so people will stop looking for the superkid that saved head cheerleader Megan’s house. But when Noah lets all the superkid go to his head what can Donovan to do?
This is a really awesome book on so many different levels about friendship, cliques, and acceptance. It is a book that is good for all kids in the middle grade age group, as there is a wide range of kids in the book there is bound to be one to pretty much fit anyone reading the book. This book brings a lot to the table from bullying to the pressures that kids put on themselves to perform at the top grade wise and athletically, and these are just middle scholars (I was not thinking of what college I wanted into in the 7th grade, not seriously at least). I really enjoyed this book and hope everyone gets the chance to read or listen to it at some point, whether you are a Noah, Donovan, Megan, Hashtag or someone else in the book hopefully you see yourself and can figure out what you might change to be a better friend or to help someone become a better friend.
This was a really good book full of non stop action, lots of suspense, and of course plenty of potion magic. I am sure there will be many references made between Harry Potter and this book but if you ask me, I don't see it, apples and oranges. I guess you could make a case for anything but I think this is different and refreshing. It's eclectic list of characters, including Doll, will make this a hit for boys and girls of a wide age range and especially reluctant readers. This is a really good book and I can't wait to see what happens next!
