2023 Book Review: The Augmentors

by Gemini Gibson

YA Science Fiction, 2023 by Lost Boys Press, 286 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • A couple of the character names are similar. For me this is always tricky because I forget who each one is and it takes me a second to remember, which pulls me out of the story. It’s not a big deal and doesn’t bother most people, I’m aware of that.
  • The book moves pretty quickly. There were a few moments where I wanted to slow things down, learn more about them, and take our time. 
  • It feels like a build up to a sequel. If you don’t like that sort of ending, be warned.

What I Did Like:

  • The world building is great! I was immediately interested in this idea of augmenting a human body and wanted to know more. 
  • The ending is intense. The action kicks up, the intrigue kicks up, and you’re left with quite a shock.
  • Good characters. They’re strong together and alone, they’re fun, and they have a good relationship. I loved them! 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fans of Sci-Fi driven by technological advances and bigger questions regarding ethics of those advances.

My Rating: 4 Stars
