Survival and Adventure
When their plane crash lands, Caleb, Molly, Yoshi, Javi, Anna, Oliver, Kira, and Akiko find themselves stranded in a jungle. It's the strangest thing because their plane was flying over the Arctic, not any jungles. Their are no bodies left behind either and no explanations as to why the plane crashed in the first place.
The eight survivors must rely on each other and their knowledge if they're going to survive long enough to be rescued. There are abnormal dangers in the jungle like Shredder birds and hungry vines. Things become even more complicated and confusing when they discover a device that allows them to turn off gravity. They start to wonder if the plane crash was an accident or on purpose. They also need to focus on the necessities of survival like water and food, but it won't be easy for them.
I love how there are facts throughout the book as the eight survivors lend their knowledge to solve problems. For example, birds don't have tastebuds. I also like how everyone looks at their situation from a survival perspective and that everyone is willing to take on tasks. Each character is important in their own way and I'm looking forward to checking out the second installment to hopefully see some questions answered.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of adventure, science fiction, and survival situations.
