I read my first sci-fi book (technically an e-ARC but who cares?) And got my mind blown.
I always wanted to get out of my fantasy shell and try something new , but everytime I try some glittery fantasy cover catches my eyes.
But this time , I actually requested in Edelweiss ( which is my hobby since i love receiving reject emails) but buttttttttt I got approved ( approved approved approved) .
The deadline was near , so i set this as my priority and read it and what can I say , I will never ever ever regret this decision.
*Thank you Edelweiss ans HarperTeen for giving me a chance to read and review this E-ARC in exchange for an hinest opinion. All opinions stated are mine*
Title : The Disasters
Author : M.K.England
Rating : 4/5
Genre : Young adult , Sci-fi
Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices. So it’s not exactly a surprise when he’s kicked out of the elite Ellis Station Academy in less than twenty-four hours. But Nax’s one-way trip back to Earth is cut short when a terrorist group attacks the Academy.
Nax and three other washouts escape—barely—but they’re also the sole witnesses to the biggest crime in the history of space colonization. And the perfect scapegoats.
On the run, Nax and his fellow failures plan to pull off a dangerous heist to spread the truth. Because they may not be “Academy material,” and they may not even get along, but they’re the only ones left to step up and fight.
I was honestly confused to write a review cz I can’t decide how to do it.. list or why you have to or a proper review.. so I have given my best. Tell me If you like it.
Why should you all read the disasters by M.K.England
- 3/4 kick ass heroine characters
The main characters of the story has 4 gurls . And 3/4 girls are just awesome. They can kick anyone if they want to. They don’t need guys but they still help the boys.
- Breaking the trio cliche with 2 gurls 2 boys
The story “kicks off” with 4 ppl which is mostly unusual and woth equality. The best trio or crew we all remember mostly contain either more boys than girls or more boys than girls. I’m really glad the authir broke this cliche.
- And adding another gurl which actually does girls majority which is sooo rare.
At some point , the crew adds up another girl which actually makes a girls majority which is VERY VERY RARE IN YA
- Case actually behaving as a kid
As usual , there is a girl who is relatively younger and has moral standards a lot. She has behaved so natural. She believes what she thinks is right… Screws up . But that’s how our most middle grade was . Wasn’t it?
Am just gonna give a glimpse of the characters without spoilers. Trust me.
I fell in love with Case the moment Nex hall notices the genius girl in the shuttle. She is so cool
Completely ridiculous. And yet . . . also kind of awesome. – Nex hall
Nex hall is bisexual and aerosexual. Nex is just so hot and smart. A perfect (damn) hero material.
I shout back to Rion, not even slightly sure that yawing is an actual word, but also not giving a flying, crashing fuck.
As i mentioned above Case is younger relatively but she makes up with her smartness.
Hot , confident , hilarious member of the crew. Though he gives quite a competition to Nax in those , He is totally cool.
Zee is the character which ( add every kick ass no romance interest heroine you love) everyone falls in love with. She is an athelete , medic and just awesome. I loved her l sooo much.
Writing was so fun and fast. The book is big than the normal size (368 pages) but we just fky through them.
There is a great deal of diversity rep in the book which might sound a little bit too much but it won’t feel like when you read the book.
Since the story is basically narrated in Nax perspective , I felt so sorry for everyone else. Each and every character was awesome and I really wanna hear their opinions.
So this is the story which you buy on your interest on the beautiful cover or the awesome blurb which makes you wide awake until you finish the book. A really awesome read.
