The Spec Set by Taya Okerlund

4 Stars

Action-filled YA

Okerlund pens an action-packed, explosive story in The Spec Set. I really enjoyed this story, as the pace was perfect for the story, and didn't leave the reader behind. The characters were wonderfully created and had a sense of depth to them. I found the character Max, who has some form of disabilities, to be wonderfully divided into many parts of himself. The story works, showing what could be complicated to be living life, and dealing with extraordinary powers and other worlds. This may be focused for the young adult audience, but this reader (not a young adult) enjoyed this very much. I've read Okerlund's work before and definitely look forward to reading more.
