Review: Sixty-Seven Salamanders by Jeffary Joseph

March 4, 2019

About the Book:

Adin Anderson lives in a small town where the stagnant flow of time is considered peace and quiet, but that isn’t good enough for him. And he may not be a huge believer in fate, but something bigger has to be out there for him. The day he receives a letter of acceptance into one of the most prestigious colleges just may be it. Although before he can focus on his new direction in life, events that defy logic threaten to knock him off course.

My thoughts:

This is a fun read. An superhero origin story with a twist as students are recruited and trained into an elite force rather than rebelling against the government/status quo. Adin is a terrific main character. Strong but gentle, his doubts and fears as he discovers his strange abilities make him a realistic character. His love for his family also sets him apart from the loners in his new squad. The fight scenes and training exercises are enjoyable to read. Tension and action is layered nicely. You really do feel Adin’s uncertainty and desire to improve – to be the best so that his team can rely on him rather than be hindered by him. Looking froward to book two to see what happens next
