Book Review: Aquarius Rising by Christopher John Chater

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction

Age Recommended: 14 and up

I received this book courtesy of BookRature.

I loved this book because the author found a way to tie the past to the future, while putting the entire story in a new perspective. Moreover, the characters were very well-developed but the author didn’t spend half the book developing them, as was the case for some of the other books I have read recently.

I found some of the parts confusing because of new character introductions but most of the book was fast-paced and fun to read given the various plot twists. The only criticism I have for the book is that people seemed to be in grave danger almost every second. Almost every page of the book was marked by the presence of an assassin. I understand that because this is an action book, but a few calm sections in between would have been nice.
