Review of Ian Quicksilver: The Warrior’s Return by Alyson Peterson
All my reviews, good, bad, or indifferent, are based on my own opinion and from my personal viewpoint. They are also spoiler free.
I purchased this book at a convention from the author.
YA books are not for teenagers alone. Good writing is good writing. And Alyson Peterson writes well.
This author knows teenagers. Every emotion, action, and decision (good or bad) is believable.
The book is humorous, touching, suspenseful, and heart-wrenching at various times. Ian is an engaging character who I started rooting for on page two. His reactions to the various bombshells dropped on him in a short period of time are both believable and wryly snarky.
Doc Saunders as the outsider caught up in the story was my second favorite character.
I give it 4 stars for an adult reader. If I was actually a young adult it would likely have been 5.
There are two sequels available. I look forward to reading them.
