After his beloved grandfather dies and his annoying aunt moves in to take care of him, Theo is sad and angry at the same time. His aunt constantly harangues him about his lack of friends, his time spent at his computer, and, for goodness sake, even his feelings.
A mysterious letter and a package containing an old newspaper pique Theo's interest. With Jules' help, he follows the "breadcrumbs" to a new adventure.
The Star Agency, by R. E. Weber, is a fun science fiction for kids. It's the first book in the Star Agency Chronicles. With questions left unanswered, the second book should continue the exciting adventures.
Today, realizing that I didn't have access to two of the other books that I'm currently reading, I was scrolling through my kindle cloud reader list, and saw The Star Agency again. "Eh...sure, why not?" I thought. So I opened it, and started reading. I don't think I was a full tenth of the way into the book before I started raving about it on Twitter.
The problem with 'space' books, is that (pertaining to your average reader) you can either knock it out of the park... or fail horribly by boring the reader to tears. The Star Agency, much like Ender's Game, scores a home run easily. R.E. Weber has done an extremely credible job of giving the reader a scifi story on a simple enough level that 10 year old could read it, but keeping it interesting enough that adults should have no problem visually devouring it either.
Note: Sometimes it is so hard to do these reviews completely spoiler-free!
The characters are fleshed-out, and believable in their actions. The main character, especially, has a talent for putting his foot in it in a typical teenager's way. The reactions to surprises, shocks, etc, are all very appropriate for their age groups. There's a hint of potential romance, but not enough to detract from the story itself.
I liked the world-building. I hate info-dumps, though I do recognize their necessity at times. R.E. Weber manages to give us the information we need without feeling like we're constantly reading massive immovable walls of text. I could not tell you in great detail what Polisium looked like, and I'm perfectly okay with that. I've said it before and I'll say it again - our imagination is our greatest gift.
Overall, The Star Agency is a fantastic book, and thus far stands out as the best indie published book that I have read this year. Fantastic work from a very talented author.
The suspense is well-sustained and keeps you turning the pages. The author has spun a great science fiction tale and created a vivid world. This story is a clean read with plenty of adventure and believable characters. While suitable for young readers, it's an enjoyable "stress free" read for adults as well. However, remember this story is designed and targeted for younger readers, for whom it's an excellent introduction to the world of sci-fi, but may not be what you're looking for if you're expecting a more sophisticated story/writing style populated with adult characters.
I appreciate the fact that the author stated that this book took years to write. I have to admit that I can truly relate to that, since mine did, too. To fully confess, I, too have written a young adult science fiction series and I truly believe that anyone who enjoys Weber's story would enjoy my Star Trails Tetralogy and vice versa.
