bookreview
Kidnap by Sally Ann Melia is the first part of the Guy Erma and the Son of Empire book series. This book starts out with action and imaginative story-telling right from the beginning. When I started reading, I was surprised about how quickly I was totally wrapped up in this story. The story is so unique in its character and world building from the very first moment.

This is such a wonderfully written science fiction tale. The author does an outstanding job of creating this world and the characters and situations within it. I was so involved in the story right from the very beginning. Prince Teodor and Guy Erma are very different, but similar in a lot of ways as well. I really liked both of them and was so excited to keep turning the pages on my Kindle and reading this story. This is a fast-paced sci-fi thriller. I loved spending time in the worlds that the author has created, and I am looking forward to the next installment in the series!

Kidnap by Sally Ann Melia is geared toward the 12-17 age group, but even at a little older than that, I still thoroughly enjoyed it! 😉 This is a book that I will be having my 12 1/2 year old daughter read for one of her summer reads. If you enjoy an intriguing science fiction, appropriate for all ages, then Kidnap by Sally Ann Melia is one you definitely need to check out.
