Review: Solid (Solid #1) by Shelley Workinger

Solid by Shelley Workinger

Clio is attending a summer camp, but this is not your typical summer camp. This one is run by the military for kids who have been genetically modified as part of an illegal experiment. The existence of this camp is to find out more about these modifications as part of the military's 'open book' policy and make amends for their rogue doctor who conducted these experiments. As the camp progresses though, Clio finds things to be a bit fishy.

The beginning of the book is great because there is a glimpse into the experiment. It sets the mood for the book very nicely. I also liked that there are abilities beyond athleticism and intelligence.

This is a pretty short book (less than 250 pages), which doesn't leave a lot of room for a story (maybe because I read so many epics >.>). The story itself was pretty good in terms of pacing, but I felt the romances, in particular, lacked depth. I also did not get very emotionally attached to the characters because there were actually quite a few which were central to the story besides Clio.

Also, it's good to see a beginning to a trilogy have an ending that isn't a cliffhanger. Solid ended in a good place, and has enough hint to make the reader want to continue reading the series.

Star Rating: 3.0/5.0

Great review, and thanks for the honest star rating. I'm not too fond of this genre, but once in a while I do come across a book that will get my attention.
