City of the Falling Sky
(The Seckry Sequence Book 1)
By Joseph Evans
When Seckry Sevenstars is forced out of his village by the greedy Endrin Corporation and relocated to the daunting metropolis of Skyfall City, he harbours resentment for the company and vows to get them back one day for taking away his home, his school and his friends.
Fortunately, the marvels of the city do a good job in distracting Seckry from his anger and homesickness, and it isn’t long before he’s competing at Friction (the city’s most popular multiplayer video game), slurping awe-inspiring multicoloured milkshakes, and getting butterflies on his first date.
Then, when a mysterious email asks Seckry to break into the headquarters of the Endrin Corporation and steal a container full of worms for a hefty sum of money, his anger resurfaces, and he can’t resist the revenge he promised himself.
The book is full of plot twists some that are so page turning I just lost track of the time completely as I didn’t want to put the book down.
A remarkably good read it kept my attention all the way through. Great characters and plot, story was great, a well put together book, great story telling. I will be reading more from this author, looking forward also to other books in the series.
Books are available from www.amazon.ca, www.amazon.com, www.kobo.com and other fine book stores.
