In the year 2080 AD, the asteroid Ominoulada strikes the Earth, shaking the planet.
Jexter Bladebrace finds himself stranded on an island. The spaceship Spectrovor arrives to help the Earthlings. Joining one hundred survivors on the island where Spectrovor lands, Jexter, Shelly and Mac try to prevent their island from sinking into the ocean.
The Spectropeans from Spectrovor suggest an alliance with the Earthlings, whereby they will save them by turning them into humphibians, a life form which can survive on land as well as in water. The humphibians take refuge in a sunken ship and
learn to live on the demolished planet Earth, exploring and finding new places.
But when they find another planet, a reflection of the Earth, their lives take a drastic turn.
Can Jexter, Shelly and Mac salvage the future of the Earthlings?
Jexter Bladebrace & The Exalted Kingdom by Jamie Smartkins is a compelling YA Scif/Fantasy read. This is a relatively short read, so the action is fast paced from the beginning and kept a great pace throughout.
The characters are introduced quickly, and I’m happy to say they were each very well-developed. I especially enjoyed Jexter, but each character had a purpose and personality.
Because of the length, the world building is not as in-depth as I’m used to in fantasy/scifi novels, however, it is enough to let me see the world which is what I want.
The story took a different path than I expected, which made me enjoy it more. I do wish it had been a little bit longer so we could explore more of this really intriguing world, but overall, the story was great.
If you enjoy YA Fantasy/Scifi, I recommend giving this a shot.
Thanks to the author for the review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
