I found "The Twenty" to be an absolutely captivating read. When I read the blurb the first thing that came to mind was The Children of Men by P.D. James. There's something about a society that's been decimated by infertility and the prospect of human extinction that I find fascinating. The characters in this book are so well rounded and likable. I immediately liked and respected Hazel. She is selfless and will do whatever it takes to protect the people she cares about. She's self assured and amazingly strong willed, and when things get tough she squares her shoulders and marches ahead, even pushing everyone else behind her. Her sister, Netty, while still a likable character, is much more passive and even a little coddled. I love our two male characters, Shane and Luka. It's not often that I am faced with a love triangle where I don't immediately know which guy I want the girl to end up with...actually, I don't think that's ever happened. Until now. I love them both! Shane is more quiet and laid back, yet he's extremely passionate about what he believes in. Luka, on the other hand, is more demanding and controlling, but he definitely has a softer side. They are both amazing characters. The action and mystery in this book had me completely enthralled, and the ending left me begging for more. Seriously...I begged! "The Twenty" is the first book of the Barronlands Trilogy, and I simply cannot wait to get my hands on the next thrilling story so I can see where Hazel and her friends end up and what forces they are up against.
