Solaris Seethes by Janet McNulty
A group of unlikely heroes, one world lost to the lust for greed and power, and one spaceship with the personality of your best friend, worst enemy, and even your mom! Solaris Seethes by Janet McNulty is more than action-packed young adult science fiction, it is full on fantasy with some of the greatest elements all gathered together in a tale that is larger than life and full of imagination and brilliance!
Imagine being one of the last to survive your world, only making it off because your late grandfather was a brilliant, yet secretive scientist who had created a sentient spaceship who knows you better than you know yourself. Rynah’s heart has been deceived; her new fiancé was only after a gem, long thought to be a mythological tale, that holds the power of the universe in its facets. Now it is both survival and payback time and Rynah and Solaris are just the ones to do the job! At all costs they must rally team together to save the galaxy from ultimate ruin and dictatorship. Reaching across time and space, Solaris will bring Rynah her “army” and the so the quest begins…
Rynah has some rough edges, and she must learn to celebrate the differences her team brings to the table, for only together do they stand a chance against a seasoned army. Each with their own strong point, each willing to fight for honor, each determined to finish the job and be returned to their own time and place. Follow their journey, their battles, their pain and their victories as they live each day on the edge with only Solaris to guide them.
Janet McNulty tells the kind of fantasy that allows her readers to plunge right in, and join the fray while putting their won slant on the story, almost as interactive as Solaris! No spoon feeding here, just a chance to unleash your own inner hero and fight on the side of good. Ms. McNulty never lets up on the drama, the pace, the atmosphere of desperation and determination, not even for one second.
Truly a battle for survival against evil as one young woman finally understands her past and appreciates all that was done to keep her safe by the grandfather she turned her back on. Unique characters, fierce battles, emergencies, and a coming together between these diverse players highlight this adventure as this group learns the value of each member and their place on the team. I was lost in the tale, part of the action and found myself wanting to meet Solaris, myself, because she is the unique twist in this adventure! You want heroics, tension and out of this world action? It's all here!
I received this copy from Janet McNulty in exchange for my honest review.
