#BookReview: Jacob's Ladder by Charlie Pike

Synopsis: We have heard your call.

You no longer need to fear.

You will receive five messages, of which this is the first.

The last message will inform you of the time and place of your salvation.

The year is 2203, and Initiate Leon wakes early for his Rising. To come of age in his warrior culture he is expected to prove his ability to kill. Leon lives on a dying earth, scorched by powerful solar flares. But a series of messages from an alien civilisation have promised refuge to those strong enough to survive on their planet. The last message will arrive any day now.

Out in the wild, Leon’s mission quickly unravels, and he is forced to question everything he has been taught. He will need all his resources just to stay alive in this final violent struggle to escape the dying planet.

My Review: Although I didn't have high hopes for this one I was hoping it was going to be good.  I love science fiction stories and this one caught my eye.  Although, the story had promise and the author can totally write well.  The story itself fell short of any expectation that I could have had.  I think with some more content editing this one could be a major hit with the ya crowd.  

An ambitious YA novel for fans of Patrick Ness, Rick Yancey and James Dashner.
