Montzalee, a NetGalley reviewer, shares their thoughts on Albert Nothlit's "Earthshatter".
Earthshatter by Albert Nothlit is one of the most non-stop, on-the-edge-of-your-seat fantasy/sci-fi books I have read. Every page is filled with action, danger, and nail-biting adventure. By the time I finished the book I felt so tense, I needed a muscle relaxer or a massage! The book is filled with twist, turns, unexpected things happening on every page that you can't get comfortable at any time. Creatures attack Haven, well the whole world really, and Kyrios saves (has them kidnapped) eight certain people, only the AI knows why. When the people come out of stasis the craziness begins. Everyone on Earth is dead, they think. They are hunted by poisonous giant bugs, swarms of them, they are thirsty, hungry, and no idea how long they were in stasis. They start looking for Dex's brother. Dex, the kid, is a little psychic. He is my favorite in the story. Everyone thinks he is crazy. I would love to see this as a movie, wow! The plot is great, dialogue is fun, witty, and true to the characters. The characters are interesting and varied, well developed, and I can't wait to see them in another book. Please? The book is long but I didn't want it to stop, I wanted more and more... The creativity, imagination, the fantasy, the science, humor among the terror, the planning, the details, I can't say enough about this book. Excellent job. I received this book from NetGalley for a honest review and it in no way effected my review or rating. Thank you NetGalley, I might not have found this book without you! - 5 stars
