Hello! Here is my review of 2884—Ixodia Escape by T.A. Sankar. I will have an In My Mailbox VERY SOON! I am having technical difficulties uploading it to YouTube, but I have filmed it. Also, BIG NEWS—I will being do some giveaways sometime soon! Yay! 🙂 I hope you guys are excited. I am trying to come up with something fun to do on my blog for my one-year blog-o-versary (March 16!), and if you have ideas let me know. Hope you like the review!
Xander, Mondeus, Jelina and Arielle are on school break and have decided to go on a vacation. It is their first trip out of the System on their own—they are going to the Ixodia System without any adults, in the spaceship Pelican 25. They have made arrangements to travel to Aqualon, and its uninhabited planet Riad. But while they are on a camping trip on Riad, they return to the landing site of the Pelican 25 and discover it missing without a trace. Now, Xander, Mondeus, Jelina and Arielle are stranded on an uninhabited moon with little food, supplies and medicine. And when Arielle fractures her ankle, and Xander gets kidnapped, things take a turn for the worse. In this space-set sci-fi adventure, the author captures the story of the four teens in a fight to survive with a great first book about the main characters.
What I thought about it:
I thought this was a great book. This was the first book I have read that was set in space, and I found myself enjoying it. It was cool to read a book that is set in somewhere that doesn’t exist, on a new planet, and moon. I liked the description and how you knew what the characters were feeling. I enjoyed the adventure in this book and the plot, with a vacation that ends up becoming a survival story. There was one thing that I noticed that I wasn’t particularly fond of—the grammar and punctuation. There were a few times that I found improper punctuation, ex. no period, no quotation marks, etc. There was also the occasional “what?” about a wacky sentence. Overall though, I thought this was an enjoyable read. Thank you T.A. Sankar for sending me a copy of this book and two others to read and review! Oh, and there were these characters from a far-away System who were called Gadorans. This is what I imagined them to look like for the whole book, even though it said that they looked human-like:
#WanderOverYonder You’ve got to admit—they do look like space creatures (because they are) and they are kind of cute 🙂
Overall: 8 out of 10 XanderStars
Very bold looking cover and interesting story premise. Thanks for featuring and congratulations on your one year blog anniversary. Keep up the good work.
You know, I don’t read very much science fiction…need to get up to speed on that. Thanks for sharing this one. Sweet on the anniversary and congrats, too!!
