I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Mira is a girl who lives in the OLD OLD TIMES. They have no technology, nothing but their farm and themselves. When Weir, a strange traveler comes and tells her that he is from another planet, at first she doesn’t believe him. Then she goes into his ship with her father, and sees all these devices that she never even knew existed, drank a fizzy strawberry drink that she had never tasted before, and she was immediately sold. When Weir says that he is here on a mission to kill an evil man, she immediately wants to be able to help him.
Fast forward a lot of years. Tina lives with her grandmother Bitsy, her cousin Tiffany, her cousin’s boyfriend, and her cousin’s baby. She is always telling her cousin to dump her hacker boyfriend, but she realizes that if she leaves with her boyfriend than her elderly grandmother will lose the baby that she has become so attached to taking care of. While she deals with this, a strange mummy has come to be displayed at the the museum where she works. This mummy is attracting a lot of publicity, including a strange man that comes almost every day just to watch him. One day, the mummy is struck by lightning and escapes the museum, and so now Tina and the strange man must try to capture him.
This book was a sweet read. Although the characters were supposed to be going through high paced action and intense scenes, I could still feel myself feeling calm after every scene where I just got a nice setting with something such as a family dinner. The storyline was creative and I did enjoy getting to hear about Mira before learning about Tina instead of that simply being a flashback or not included at all. It is important to me for a book to have balance, and although it took me a while to truly get into the story, it does not drag for long because of its comfortable length. I would advise this to you as a quick read with a balanced storyline good for any day.
Overall Rating: 4/5
