Recruits by Thomas Locke

It's a world they've seen only in their dreams--until now.

Twins Sean and Dillon Kirrel have dreamed about a world beyond their own since they were children, but it has always been a fantasy. Not long before their eighteenth birthday, however, the arrival of a mysterious new neighbor and the revelations he shares bring that far-off world within reach. 

When Sean and Dillon learn they share a unique gift--the ability to transfer instantly between worlds--they are offered an opportunity to prove themselves as recruits to the planetary Assembly. But unlocking their abilities awakens an enemy beyond anything they ever imagined, thrusting them into an interplanetary conflict that could consume the entire human race.

Review:  Recruits is a fast paced, action packed blend of Avatar and Star Trek with a whole lot of unique spins, clever ideas, new worlds, romance, and teenage super powers. 

It is pretty hard not to enjoy a book like this one. It has everything. 

Action? This book is fast paced from start to finish and simply leaves you wanting more. Romance? Absolutely. Creativity? You bet. The potential for these books is limitless with hundreds of worlds left to explore. Magical powers? Of course! This was probably my favorite part of this story. I loved following along as Sean and Dillon figured out their abilities, pushed the borders of their skills, and kicked butt with their mad new talents. Good story line? Yes. Very clever. 

So in short, I really enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend it as a young adult sci fi read (Not saying an adult wouldn't like it, I think they very much would).

Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and to Baker Publishing House for a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion.
