Rating: 3 1/2 kitties

I received a copy of Frozen Secrets through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Frozen Secrets is Myles Christensen’s debut novel, and it is a space adventure perfect for anybody looking for a little bit of an escape from reality. This science fiction novel is especially perfect for young adults and younger, as it is very approachable.

Max Parker is one of those kids who is both brilliant and has a knack for getting into trouble. That makes him a handful, even on Earth. But now he and his best friend, alongside their families, are about to go on their biggest adventure yet.

They’re going to one of Jupiter’s moons. Along the way, there are plenty of exciting things to behold, and a fair amount of mischief to find. Including, but not limited to, uncovering and solving a case of sabotage – or something much worse.

 

“His brain had barely registered the idea that he was about to die, when the safety line brought his free-fall to an abrupt end.”

Spoiler Warning

Frozen Secrets was a fun and fast-paced read. It easily ate the time as I devoured the pages, following Max and friends as they got themselves into trouble and saved the day. This science fiction novel had a sound plot, and used facts from real science to support what was an intriguing plot. It was the perfect combination.

Looking back on it, I feel like this novel really is perfect for anybody curious about science fiction or just looking for a nice and light escape. As I mentioned above, it is highly approachable, both to a younger audience and to people less experienced in the genre.

Max and his friends were exuberant, which sounds like it should be exhausting, but it was actually quite fun to read about their adventures here. It seemed like they were constantly running around or diving into this or that – which you can imagine resulted in a fair amount of chaos, given that they were in a space station.

While the plot was interesting, I honestly think it was the balance of humor and pacing that really sold me on this novel. There was always something to laugh at, or at least to make me smile or chuckle. Okay, there might have been an indulgent eye-roll or two, but it was all in good fun. It made for a really amusing read, and given how many dark novels I’ve been reading lately, I really appreciated that.

Frozen Secrets was everything it advertised. It was light and fun, yet full of science and space travel. Max and his friends really are quite talented at getting into trouble, so let me tell you that description did not oversell there. I’m looking forward to seeing what other novels and plots Myles Christensen comes up with next.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
