It’s the year 2108. I just turned 16. That means I can access the autopilot on my Aerokopa. So now, I can both fly and scope the Dat-X at the same time. But what good is that when I don’t even have a date to my best friend’s party of the century? Okay, well, one of the Holdouts offered to go with me . . . but there’s NO WAY I’m going with one of them! And then there are th ...more

Eyes Open is the exciting first book of the 2108 series, and the debut by author K.L. Glanville. I've praised 11/22/63 by Stephen King for doing an amazing job at making you feel as if you are actually back into the past, and I can now say the same thing about this book. Only it puts you ahead in time.


When you are reading this book you will never forget you are reading a story that takes place in 2108. The descriptions and world building are very well done. Glanville created new words, phrases,

2108: Eyes Open

By: K.L. Glanville

Summary: It is the year 2108. The world has gone through an alien invasion, but New Zealand has become the home of those that are naturals and holdouts. Naturals are those that don’t want anything done to their bodies. They don’t want bionic additions, tattoos, or to even wear synthetic materials. Jewel, our heroine, is a natural. We meet her as she tries to figure out how to get her dad moving so that she can get restrictions taken off of her aerokopa (just like

It's 2018. Jewel (or Charmskinned as fondly called by her dad) has just turned 16. 16! That means she can finally access the autopilot on her Aerokopa (think of the Jetsons cartoon and how they traveled). Life is opening new doors right and left!

But really what good is being 16 and being able to explore the countryside when you do not have a date to your BFF's party of the century? Well, except for that one boy, Loyal who's cute and all but he is also a HOLDOUT... and that is a can of grief Jewe

If there is one genre that I absolutely adore for its creativity it’s Science Fiction, or what you guys know as sci-fi. But what makes sci-fi even better is when it has a bit of dystopia in the mix. I have been yet to find something of the sort up until I read 2108: Eyes Open (and it’s a series! Yay!). Placed in a world where aliens have touched down on our planet and invaded, the only safe place for people who don’t want to become Bionics is New Zealand where our curious main character, Jewel, ...more

Review from A Journey Through Pages

You know what my favourite part about blogging book reviews is? The opportunities I get to enter contests to win books or when I get sent an ARC. Eyes Open is one of those books received in a contest. I was pretty happy when I won since I had decided that I really need to read more YA Scifi that isn't Dystopic. In other words I needed more spaceships and aliens in my life.

What makes this 2108 series so interesting is the world that Glanville has created here. A

In the slang coined by the author, this book is totally fazmatic! Glanville has built a future world full of believable technology and where everywhere except New Zealand has become part of some United Security Front in alliance with aliens who have, according to them, returned to the earth to help them get back on track. These aliens originally came to earth thousands of years ago, and were, in fact, the God/gods that people came to worship. Again, according to them. Jewel, the narrator, has le ...more

Not to sound naff but this book was delightful and I think its all down to the naive, charming heroine. At first I thought she was going to annoy the crap out of me but instead I found her extremely refreshing. Im sick of heroines who are all angst ridden with dead parents. The tech the author has envisioned for our future is the other reason this book was enjoyable. I loved the detail and I definitely wanted more. This is a great book for people 12 years and up.
