Entangled in Sci-Fi

This is exactly what I’ve been wanting from YA Science Fiction. With a deliciously unique flavor and a fantastically written narrative, ENTANGLED is setting the bar high for teen sci-fi.

What I loved: Cade. She is such a fascinating protagonist. From her troubled upbringing to living off her music, her rocker style to her no-nonsense attitude, Cade is one hell of a girl. She also has flaws, makes mistakes, and can’t make up her mind. Despite Cade being a super-special human with super-special abilities she isn’t annoying, whiny, or entitled. Her quirky voice, interesting slang, and authentic outlook on life kept me turning the pages.

I also loved: The romance. Or should I say, lack thereof? Don’t get me wrong, there is romance in this story. It is tertiary to the two more important plot points – Cade finding and rescuing Xan, and Cade’s own journey of self-discovery. The romance is extra. It’s delightful, and a little weird, and completely tantalizing, but it’s not that big of a deal. And I really respect that in a YA novel.

And even more love for: The sci-fi elements! Quantum mechanics can often seem wonky or cliched in fiction, but it was not that way here. Big, fancy, sciency words weren’t just thrown around to sound cool – the author knows what she’s doing. Spaceships and aliens, quantum entanglement and telepathy, holograms and spacesickness. The science in this fiction is delightful.

I wanted more: Everything! Which I shall receive in the upcoming sequel.

Recommended: Highly! To all fans of science fiction and fantasy, aliens and spaceships, music and friendship.
