Paul's Starters REVIEW

Paul's Enders PRE-READING

Synopsis: With the Prime Destinations body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn't want to do. Like hurt someone she loves. Having the chip removed could save Callie's life - but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena's memories, too ...and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body? This is the thrilling sequel to "Starters".


Review: This second book in a sci-fi dystopian YA series continues with another fun, easy read. Although still a simple story with big reveals towards the end, I enjoyed this book more than Starters.

I think many readers, especially younger readers, will enjoy this series, but I didn't find myself invested in these characters. There are many convenient occurrences, but some have reasons later explained. Maybe some of the things I found too convenient will be revealed later in the series. I also wanted more consequences for certain characters' actions.

The romance in this series is awkward to me. I think it's supposed to be though, considering the circumstances of how they met.

Although there were many surprises and reveals in this book, I never really felt the chills of an amazing reveal.

I wasn't expecting this review to sound so negative. I did really enjoy this book, but it just wasn't as epic as I wanted it to be. I do recommend this book to younger readers. This series is one of those series that might be labeled as YA, but it could definitely pass as a Middle Grade. I give this book a 3.5/5.
