Exo gets a 5 star rating from me.
Well when I saw this I jumped at the chance to read about Jumper. I fell in love with the books after I saw the movie a while back ago. Well although the books and movie are worlds apart, I have to say that I still love both. This is book 4 in the series and I love how the story didn't end when the main characters grew up, got married, and had a kid of their own. The story just kept going with their daughter named Cent, who of course can also teleport. I really love the passion that Gould puts into these stories. I wouldn't be surprised if I was to meet them on the street one day. That is how real the author makes his characters. So if you are a die-hard fan, or a new fan of the series, this will definitely keep you waiting for more.
Cent's character grows so much in this new book. She is learning to use her powers and contributing to the world. Exo is science fiction at its best! I wanted the book to be way longer.
Go Into This One Knowing
This is a fast paced read. Both fans of the series and new comers will dive head first into the pages of Exo. This is definably one not to miss.
Award-winning author, Steven Gould, returns to the world of his classic novel Jumper in Exo, the sequel to Impulse, blending the drama of high school with world shattering consequences.
Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be—sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it’s hard to keep a secret like that. And there are people, dangerous people, who work for governments and have guns, who want to make you do just this one thing for them. And when you’re a teenage girl things get even more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.
But Cent isn’t easily daunted, and neither are Davy and Millie, her parents. She’s going to make some changes in the world.
