It has been an almost two year wait for this book! But boy oh boy was it worth it! I read book 1, Drive!, six times since it first came out. Twice by myself, then with my son, and then with my son again, and finally with my youngest daughter who came in the final time I was reading it with my son. As a family we love the world Corinna Turner has created for this series. And both children have been asking for a long time when this book would be out. I have devoured this volume twice, once last night before bed, and again this morning on my commute to work. And will start it again this evening with my children. 

I stated in my review of book one that: “It sort of feels like a cross between Jurassic World and Mad Max! The story is set in a future when scientists have created dinosaurs and humans are no longer top of the food chain. Most humans live inside walled cities, the walls being layers of electrified fences.” And unSPARKed is anywhere outside the electrified fences. This story revolves around one family, their friends and their priest. And of course, the dinosaurs in the world they inhabit. 

This story begins very intense and ends that way. In between there is a lot of fun, family and friends. It is a very interesting story. You cannot help but feel yourself immersed in this world. And what a world Turner has created. The world building is excellent. The characters are very well written. And the plot has some intriguing twists. 

This book was a lot of fun to read. In fact I read it twice in under 12 hours over two days. And will read it again with my kids. This book and this series is FANtastic! And this book ends with the beginning of a sneak peak of a prequel Breached! Already on my watch list to read as soon as it becomes available.
