Well tickle me silly comrades, I was beyond surprised how much I enjoyed this one! To be fair though, you know I love a good sci-fi goodness in my life, and I think because this was more young adult than my normal adult genre it surprised me how much I enjoyed Replaced Parts.
Firstly, the plot was fascinating. The futuristic world was believable, or maybe I am just a crazy sci-fi groupie who enjoys a good diabolical corruption twist and turn, mixed with the mad scientist feels, but to create such a relatable fictional future that is portrayed was easily imaginable. I could picture the technology and unique science. Very creatively done!
And then the characters!! YES! I felt that Sienna was very well rounded in her thinking, personality and actions – I did have a slight irk about how ‘grown’ her attitude was given the age group of the characters, but still really enjoyed her evolution. Then the side characters, whew. So fun. I felt there was a great blend of personalities that meshed well throughout the story.
Overall, enjoyed Replaced Parts, it was fast paced with multi-dimensional characters, plus great world building that was easily pictured, I cannot wait to continue on with this adventure. Adventure, a bit of suspense, corruptions and lovable characters, plus that cliffhanger, yes please; great start to what I hope to be a great series – see you in book two for sure!!
