Review of MINE by Brett Battles
MINE is a perfectly contained novel, a blend of science fiction, speculative fiction, mystery, and history, perfectly plotted and engrossing. I couldn't set it aside, but had to read through to the end to find out Why? Who? How? and more. Set initially in Colorado, the story line begins at Camp Red Hawk, where a small group of 13-year-old campers, boys and girls, decide on a night hike--an option that will forever, literally, change the lives of each.
The author makes the science fiction-speculative theme of the story so viable that there is no problem with suspension of disbelief. The characters are each finely drawn, and layered upon all this is adventure, action, terror, mental illness, and something far beyond human and incomprehensible.
[The prequel to Mine releases August 5 2016.]
