There is a lot of action and fighting sequences that fans of action movies will enjoy. Some kids are twisted enough these days as it is.

As Jack tries to figure out why he is special and what his task is, he comes across many different types of characters.

Another person I liked was Eko, a girl who claimed to know Jacks parents. What Jack does not know is that he has been shielded his entire life by his parents because they know what Jack can do.

Because I have to find Firestorm so that I can save the Earth. Discover what to read next. Refresh and try again. Seems my father isn’t my father.

Gisco and Eko disappear, leaving Jack alone. For Jack life comes pretty easy, which is why he can never understand why his parents never want him to shine like he knows he can.

He battles cyborgs, giant scorpions and zombie warlocks. The author’s ‘stylistic’ use of incomplete sentences drove me crazy. I can honestly say i really loved this book!

The picture of pristine beauty of the stallion standing on the Outer Banks would not be possible without the direct interference of man. I do not know if this is a way to give the narrator a unique voice and put the reader in his head or if this is just a way for the author to justify his unorthodox writing style. I only picked up this book because I’ve read and enjoyed so many of David Klass’s realistic fiction.


This time around instead of the ocean it is the Amazon which makes most of the earth’s air. This was a really great book!

Look it up, my friend, but not right now. He davd not tell him why they have lied to him all these years or who his real parents are before they are ambushed and Jack is forced to flee for his life. When he tells his parents his dad immediately takes him as far away as he can while explaining that they are not his real parents. You are commenting using your Facebook account.

I do not like it.

His father is not his father. Yes Iowa Teen Award Winner Jack lives with his parents in a normal town, where he excels in football and other sports as well as academics. I believe Firestorms message was to tell the reader that the world will change for the worse if we don’t protect it.

I also like Syfy stuff and there was a lot in this book Idk if there is a second book to this but if there is I would definitely read it. The action is non-stop, and the secrets are not all revealed at once–and they’re not always what you assume. Alone and depressed, he is tricked by something that looks like a teenage girl into going home with her, where he is held captive along with a telepathic dog named Gisco.

David Klass has taken that idea to create hi If you are concerned that the earth is being sucked dry by the human parasites that are overrunning it, then you will probably love this book and the rest of the trilogy, I imagine. Dodging death at every turn, he has to save the future from the damage being done in the present.

Klass also beats certain phrases a bit too hard, making sure we understand the part each character plays–but if that’s part of the mock-epic, it’s not as bad. But it’s a good read for firstorm interested in the plot. The idea of a young man being chosen for something great without him knowing it has been used many times in young adult books, but the idea of Jack having to save the world from humans destroying it through different types of pollution is a new twist.


It focuses too much detail on unimportant moments, the pace was not so great either.

Jack is kept in the dark during the novel, forcing him to salvage any information that can lead him closer to identifying klasss major threat to his future.

On the island Jack finds Firestorm and activates it, causing a volcanic eruption and sinking the island. The plot was a good plot, but it seemed a little bit like a mix of the Terminator and the Day After Tomorrow or one of those planetary death movies.

A star running back on the football team, Jack barely has time to savor a victory before his father whisks him away, warning him that everything the teen believes is a lie. Honestly, he seemed a little bit out of his element here, but it turned out okay.

But when his team wins the championship everyone that wants Jack dead knows where he is and how to firwstorm him. Overall, a poor understanding of science and technology is shown, which dilutes the message of the book well, and the ending where the deus ex machina saves the oceans without going into details.
