REVIEW: "Entertaining and Thrilling!"

The prologue starts unassumingly enough, but blink and you’ll miss it as a dramatic turn of events plunges you into this thrilling Science Fiction story. 'The Last Children of Montauk' has an interesting plot line full of mystery and tension, as perilous situations arise for the characters, I was hooked and eager to read on until the final page. I liked the world building involved at the start of the book. The detail and time taken to describe the setting of the Montauk facility really drew me into the story after a prologue that left me with a lot of questions. I was intrigued to find out who was there and what was happening. In this underground top-secret facility we are introduced to Arvee who, like other children, has been taken away from his family in order to have his gifts exploited. Arvee’s visions are used to find other gifted people, but also allow him to see the world outside the facility. Will the arrival of a more rebellious inmate, Mia, help them escape? I personally think it would be beneficial to include some indication of which character we’re focusing on at the start of each chapter, however it didn’t prevent me enjoying the book and I enjoyed the switching storylines that follow action in the facility and in the outside world. There are articles about The Montauk Project conspiracy theories online and these theories apparently inspired Stranger Things, fans of the TV show may find an enjoyable storyline here. 'The Last Children of Montauk' is an entertaining and thrilling science-fiction story with strong characters and filled with tension. I was intrigued from the first chapter and, as this is Book One, I would be interested in seeing what happens in the rest of the series.
