THE GALACTIC ADVENTURES OF HAZEL - GURECOA takes place in the far future, where our planet is only vaguely recognizable. Hazel, Ritchie, and Dimitri (who is also an alien) are on an adventure to figure out Gurecoa. With quite a bit of sci-fi imagination, this book is an interesting leap into the future.

What I loved: There are some interesting sci-fi elements that imagine the future and life on other planets in a really engaging way. It is always interesting to take a leap through time, and this is a unique take.

What left me wanting more: The characters often fell flat, and the main characters were often not very likable. The book focuses more on dialogue than other events, so it is hard to really get into the characters' mindsets. I would have liked to go a little deeper into the characters and understand where they are coming from.

Final verdict: This book is interesting for sci-fi fans who may enjoy the glimpse at the future as imagined by this author. However, the book would benefit from more character development and deeper plotting.
