My Mini Review…

Railey, and bio-robotic pal Atti, have big plans to win a drone race but unexpected events send them out into space. What they find in space changes their own path and an adventure ensues!

Full of high intensity action scenes, almost like out of a film, keep the reader hooked and immersed in the story! It is easy to get lost in the moment and come to realise hours have passed and you are glued to Atti and Railey’s adventure. It is brilliant for fans of Sci-Fi and fantasy- it offers so much for the imagination!

Their relationship is a bold friendship and is lovely to see throughout the story! Railey is a bright main character with a STEM background and she has the ability to inspire young readers into more scientific or engineering area of activities.

I know a long list of readers that will be queuing to read this first when it lands in the library!
