Reviewers say this is a book you can't put down

Alchemy of Scrawl rated it 4 of 5 stars
 Intriguing story on several levels. This is a thrilling, action packed story, but being from the U.S. this was a cultural ride into the heart of Australia as well. I loved it - the language (OZ English and US English are different :), the landscape, and the drama. If all you know about Australia comes from Crocodile Dundee and The Crocodile Hunter, you'll be pleasantly surprised with their good fiction writers as well!

Gripping and fast paced this novel tells the story of two teenagers from vastly different worlds who hate each other on sight. The two must somehow come together to save not only their own lives, but the human race. The novel is chock full of suspense, intrigue, even a little romance, and is not so far fetched. It has a satisfying ending, yet left this reader wanting more. I couldn't put it down!

I love this book by Ann Massey. Mo and Beth are believable 3D characters in this suspenseful sci/fi novel. I truly enjoyed reading about their adventures from their first meeting as adversaries to becoming friends in the trying times they are facing.

Rose rated it 4 of 5 stars
I won this book thru the Goodreads First Reads program and I really liked it. I found it full of action, with that hint of romance, and was well paced. The lead character, Geronimo Jones was interesting but I don’t seem to remember any of his physical characteristics (he’s even non-descriptive on the book’s cover with his back turned around). Beth is really described with her different colored eyes and red hair. Having this book set in Australia was refreshing but the Aussie slang had to take some getting used to. It was a fun read, I found myself reading most of my Sunday afternoon and night away. It’s about a 3 ½ stars review for me but I’m rounding it to 4 because Geronimo Jones (Mojo for short) is such a cool name
