Excellent start for a new series
on 14 March 2013
I first read this book as a beta-reader, so I am looking forward to re reading to see what changes have been made. This book is from my favourite author and is the first in a new four/five book series. Zero is set in the near future and follows Joe after he is drafted by aliens and taken back to a training planet along with most of the children from Earth. Once there the children are forced to grow up after suffering harrowing treatment at the hands of their new masters. This book isnt for the faint hearted as it quite graphically describes the horrific time suffered by the children as they become a new army for Congress, but it is well worth getting through the bits that might make you squim slightly, because the storyline is excellent. As usual the character building from Ms King is wonderfull, we are introduced to both human and aliens and both have good and bad sides. So if you are looking for a new series to read give this one a try, you wont be disappointed.
