Alpha drive is a solid debut novel from Kristen Martin. I enjoyed the fast paced action scenes, and the Matrix inspired plot.
Alpha drive would appeal to adult or older teen readers wanting a quick sci-fi / dystopian read, as well as YA readers who'd enjoy a contemporary novel with a twist.
According to the author, Alpha Drive started life as a NA contemporary novel, which was then rewritten as a YA Dystopian. This novel does seem to straddle a line between the two.
The main characters fit more in the NA age group. The setting seems to be a college/ uni, rather than a boarding school. Emery drives a car, has a long term relationship with her boyfriend, and drinks alcohol in a club.
The writing style and plot is clunky in places, but the story kept my interest with its Matrix inspired theme.
I enjoyed this book for what it is-a quick, fun read. I will be reading the rest of this trilogy to see how the story develops.
