Wow! What an incredible tale! Breach, Breach, Breech! Those are the names of the three chapters. And each has a very significant reason. But first some back story. This is the third story released in the unSPARKed series. We had to wait almost three years between book 1 and book 2. And less than 2 weeks for this book to come out after book 2 was released. That is both good and bad, for after reading this book readers will be desperate for book 3 which should tie this story and parts of book 2 together. We are told that a book 3, Panic! Is is coming soon, but with Corinna soon is a relative term. There are currently 5 books listed in her works in this volume as ‘Coming Soon’ and some of them  have been there for years. But, that complaining aside, all of her books I have read have been excellent, and more than worth the wait. Let’s get back to this story. 

This story is set 18 years before the events in book 1, Drive!, and book 2 A Truly Raptor-ous WelcomeThe three chapters focus around the same two brothers. But could almost be three separate short stories. But together they pack a significant punch. I have read both the other books in this series multiple times and will do the same with this one. But in some ways this story is much more intense and heart-wrenching than either of the others. This story is a page turner and was incredible hard to put down. From a young man taking responsibility for his mistakes. To saving the lives of most of the people at a resort. There is a lot of action in this story. A T-Rex breaches a fence at a resort and from the looks of it three packs of raptors got in. So, 18 year old Isaiah and his older brother Zechariah are there to clean up the mess. They meet an interesting priest, and a scared lazy guard. And they work long and hard. They do it not only for the pay, but they do what is right. They live by a set of rules their mother left them. And soon Isaiah has some very tough decisions to make. Decisions that will change his and Zech’s life for the rest of their lives.

In a world where Dinosaurs rule the wild again. You can either lived SPARKed behind electrified fences in cities, farms, or even a resort. Or you can live unSPARKed in a Habitat Vehicle and hunt the dinosaurs, keep the numbers of predators down. Isaiah and Zech have lived in the Hab-Vi for 7 years now and have found the life that suits them. Even if some huge changes come their way.

This book and this story are GREAT! It is a fun series to read by myself, and with my younger two children. My son loved this book and the series. His eyes lit up when he found out there is a fourth story coming soon. I have read nearly everything that Turner has written, or at least published, and they are all great stories. These ones are good for middle grade readers right up to seniors, or those approaching or in their retirement years. A great story in a great series. I’ve said it before, and I’ll likely say it again the unSPARKed books are FANtastic!
