Bandits - Early Book Review

Bandits by L.M. Preston

What is it about:
Daniel's father has gotten himself killed and left another mess for Daniel to clean up. To save his world from destruction, he must fight off his father's killers while discovering a way to save his world. Time is running out, and Daniel must choose to either walk in his father's footsteps or to reinvent himself into the one to save his world.

What did I think of it:
I really liked this story.
Preston creates an intriguing world full of danger and excitement. Her writing is pleasant and vivid and she pays attention to detail in creating the setting of this story. Although it has a dash of SciFi it's mostly a fantasy pirate adventure and a good one at that: it's got thieves, treasure troves, weird creatures and more. The story moves along at a fast pace with almost non stop action, plunging Daniel and his friends from one danger into the next, leading to a well rounded ending, but with the promise of more adventure.
All in all a more than pleasant YA adventure with possibilities to turn into a series.

Why should you read it:
If you're looking for a YA story full of adventure, this is your book.

* Bandits will be released June 1st 2011 by Phenomenal One Press
