Project Alpha starts the series with the drawing of the four down from eight to make the team that will need to go into deep space and retrieve the necessary source to save Earth from running out of power. But like any good book there are many twists, turns, and huge surprises to be had. The characters are awesome and believable tweens that show a wide range of diversity among themselves. They all have a strong science background, go STEM! Speaking of which there is also a computer interaction side that you can do along with the books, not mandatory, but can be very fun nevertheless. This book will appeal to anyone who likes action, suspense, and a lot of fun.
The second book, Game of Flames, is set to come out on November 3rd, and is written by Robin Wasserman.

This was a highly suspenseful, action packed book, with some awesome illustrations. It does have some technical jargon in it, but that is easy to get around. The basic story is well put together and the two main characters work awesomely together. I really can't wait to see what happens in part 2.

This book is set during the time of flappers, prohibition, and vaudeville. It is wonderful how the author ties in the history of the times with the wonderful story she weaves along with the characters, it made a net that caught me and held me tight until I was finished with the book and I think it may still have a hold on me until the next book comes out with some of the answers to the questions left unanswered. This book was filled with twists and turns, huge suspense, and secrets galore. I think this is another awesome book by Libba Bray, pos-i-tute-ly!

This was a great futuristic, spell weaving, fresh, all round wonderful book. I was really cool with all the artificial integrated technology one can only hope will someday be available to people that need replacement parts. It was kind of sci-fi meets steampunk, one word awesome especially if you like that technical, mechanical, building things, and I do.
