Science, Aliens, and curious children at its best!

 

The Prometheus Project: Captured follows the first book with a similar title Trapped by Douglas E. Richards. Although I haven’t read the first book, this story, aimed at the middle grades, continues the saga and adventures of siblings Ryan and Regan Resnick. In many instances, some of the information in one series may be lost if the other books are not read in a sequence. Not true in this case.

 

The novel is set within an alien city where the siblings are part of The Prometheus Project, along with their parents, set to investigate this wondrous scientific discovery. Under tight security, the children have been taught the necessary procedures to enter this underground phenomenon.

 

Ryan and Regan keep a secret, however, their ability to communicate with each other telepathically, as well as with Teacher, the main computer frame. The fear of being found out is now outweighed by an event they weren’t expecting, which thrusts them deep into the adventure of their lives.

 

Mercenaries, along with an evil alien being kidnap not only their parents but everyone else. It’s now up to Ryan and Regan to free the captives.

 

One cliffhanger after another, Richards drives the suspense forward in each chapter, capturing the reader into his imaginary world. The best part—although geared for a younger audience, anyone who is fascinated with fantasy and science will truly appreciate this thriller. And you don’t need a science background.

 

The vivid images of Ryan and Regan, the descriptive details, all lend a hand to allow you to live through their adventure. The fast-paced action will have you glued to your seat.

 

I would highly recommend this novel to all, young and old.
