Description

In this gripping and spectacular rollercoaster of an adventure, a fourteen-year-old Earth boy is chosen, seemingly at random, to become Emperor of the Galaxy during a time of grave peril.

Spencer, an ordinary teenager, lives with his mum, his stepdad Hassan and his younger brother Mo. He is decidedly average at school, sports and at video gaming, but when he is chosen to become the new Emperor of the Galaxy everything changes.

Spencer must learn how to balance being Emperor of the Galaxy and battle the evil Haxenaar, trying to get his homework in on time, and all the while pursuing the love of his life, Amy Heartly. With the help of his new companions and Bradlii, the smartest and smuggest AI ever created, Spencer must brave an epic journey to save the galaxy and discover the ultimate truth.

In this gripping and spectacular rollercoaster of an adventure, a fourteen-year-old Earth boy is chosen, seemingly at random, to become Emperor of the Galaxy during a time of grave peril.

This was a really well done children’s sci-fi novel, it had a great story and worked with the concept. The characters felt like they belonged in this world and I enjoyed figuring out what was happening to them. It does a great job in creating a good space opera feeling story and I enjoyed reading this.

The story is fun and relatively light hearted from start to finish. A solid cast of characters and fun-filled space adventure for anyone who reads it. As for my three star rating - a few things..

- This book is perfect for younger teenagers. The language is elementary and the story moves at a quick pace, perfect for kids bouncing around and juggling a million things to do throughout the day. For me personally, it was hard to fight through finishing it because of how young the writing felt.

- The story moves fast and slow all at the same time. The chapters, with the exception of a handful, are only a few pages or so and you can get through it quickly, but the story takes a long time to really develop. That’s a personal opinion of course.

Over all, the book is a fun read and something that would be perfect to give your pre-teen to read for a roadtrip or plane ride. Cheers to Alex Prior for writing a fun story!
