This book gets off to quite a slow start, and doesn't really get into a plot line until about half way in and isn't really tied up at the end (although this could be due to a sequel on the way) There's a bit of repetition, you very often read the line, `in the post-adult world,' or `after the apocalyptic virus,' etc. I may just be being picky here, but there are a couple of typing errors, for example Cloe is spelled wrong as in the TV series she didn't spell it with an `h', and there are a couple of other typos here and there. I also expected to `find' more of the lost characters, but you only here of a couple and actually come across one. And, the new characters don't get a lot of development, two of them are killed off and the others you don't really learn much about.
The writer has portrayed most characters in behaviour and especially dialogue perfectly. I could hear the actors from the TV show saying the lines and it suits them brilliantly. Also, the continuation from the end of The Tribe series 5 is exactly as I'd hoped for. For anyone who liked Ram as a character will enjoy this as you find out a lot about his past and how the Technos were formed and Ruby also has a good storyline. There is a short fight scene which has great imagery; you can imagine how it would look if it had been filmed in Tribe-style. Introduction to some good new characters with different backgrounds, it would be nice to learn more about them. Great cliffhanger, I really hope there is a sequel so I can keep reading. I want to know what happens in the love triangle between Bray-Amber-Jay. I would recommend this novel to anyone who, like me, has been waiting since 2003 to know what happens next. Our nine year wait is finally coming to a close. Happy reading, everyone!
