This is a young adult novel that can be enjoyed by adults. It is very reminiscent of some of Robert Heinlein's early books like Citizen of the Galaxy and Have Spacesuit Will Travel, which is high praise in my book. This story is also unabashedly modelled on the classic Rudyard Kipling novel, Kim, about an English orphan boy who grows up in 19th century India, become a spy in the Great Game.

IN this story, the orphan is Kim Monroe and the setting is a future America where the Southwest has become a region where all advanced forms of power do not work and where strange, alien creatures abound. Kim is recruited into this era's Great Game and like Kipling's protagonist, learns many life lessons through a series of adventures where his character, intelligence and skill allow him to escape some deadly situations, not always with his skin intact.
