BOOK REVIEW: The Ptolemy Project, by Kate St. Clair

Four Teams. One Test. No Way Out.

Wake up, report to the tect, try to survive.

Life on Carcer Station is a change from the daily struggle of four strangers, Lyra, Zeke, Aquila, and Pollux.
As Children of Titan, the first generation born on Saturn’s colonized moon, they’re used to following rules. But when they wake up on an empty space station with no memory of how they got there and no one in charge, the ghosts of their past scratch their way to the surface. Then things start to go wrong. The power in Carcer Station shorts out, and the veil around them thins. The four must fight to stay alive inside a system that’s falling apart as quickly as their own minds. Even if they can make it out, will they be able to find a way back to Titan, and to a society that accepts them—scars and all?

The first in the new series Children of Titan. It's a really interesting read. It's intense, in the way really good sci-fi adventures are. The characters are well-developed and layered. Likeable, even with all of their considerable scars and pasts.

The premise isn't an unfamiliar one. Four, seemingly unrelated, characters are left at the mercy of the technology around them. They don't have enough information to know what is going on, and soon they learn the situation is dire.That's been done, but the back story of what pits them all together is different. I don't want to slip and spoil something, but their histories are formidable and daunting. But somehow that's what makes them gel so well together.

I look forward to the next book in the series. This series has some definite escapist potential.

What do you think??
