I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed that Lola’s family was “normal” and close knit. I liked Lola being a middle age woman: a scientist. mother, scientist, and wife. The author’s political and moral stance do come through and should be better disguised or not really be in this book as some people may not enjoy that in a book. It didn’t bother me though. I advise you to read this series in order for a more informative and smoother read. I was pulled in from the start. I did stray at times as this could drag for me at times. But than they book would pull me back in. I got confused at times while reading this. I liked the plot. I loved the action and danger. I liked the different POVS, but as I said got confused at times. I really liked how these people pulled together and learned to work together for the good of the world. I did love being shown different cultures. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.
