My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A creative and imaginative continuing saga...

Forty-some years ago my uncle gave me a science fiction anthology. It was a thick red hardback that I read from cover to cover. It inspired a lifelong love of the genre. The stories in that book made me think outside the box. They filled me with awe for the imagination it took to write them. That book still remains in my collection today. The title is OMNIBUS OF SCIENCE FICTION, edited by Groff Conklin, a well-known and prolific editor of the genre. It was published in 1952, the Golden Age of Science Fiction. It’s a substantial volume, 562 pages, with 43 stories divided into sections relating to a common theme. Some stories are fun, some are thought-provoking, and some are adventurous. I love them all.

ARCADIA'S CHILDREN 5: SAMANTHA'S WAR by Andrew Williams is an excellent sci-fi that had me engaged from the opening chapter. The threads of storytelling are so expertly woven it guarantees the attention of the reader. Skillfully constructed, this creative and imaginative continuing saga had me turning the pages from beginning to end. There’s also plenty of imagery in the writing style that makes you feel like you are right there in the story and that’s something I look for in a good book.

If you are a sci-fi fan looking for a well-written Y/A sci-fi fantasy with amazing characters and a solid plot then ARCADIA'S CHILDREN 5 will not leave you disappointed. Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. A well-deserved five stars from me.
