Explorer X: Beta

Explorer X: Beta CoverTitle: Explorer X: Beta
Author: LM Preston
Publisher: Phenomenal One Press
Release Date: June 1, 2012
Received From: Author for a blog tour

Barely escaping their captors, Aadi and Eirena are determined to save their dying friend. After their final confrontation with the species that tortured them, they've changed-unfortunately, not for the better. The changes caused by a terrible experiment force Aadi to accept the possibility that he may never be fit to go home, and that holding onto his sanity, or leading his friends to safety will end in failure and may rip his friendship with Eirena apart, forever. Time is slipping away and the possibility of losing his friend is not an option, but the foe that awaits them may be worse than the one they left.

I am excited to be the first stop on the blog tour for Explorer X: Beta by  LM Preston.
I read the first book as part of a blog tour before it first came out so it has been a while since I read it so at the beginning it was hard to remember/understand what was going on. So I would definitely recommend reading the first book before reading this one. Once I got into the story it was really interesting and fun.
I really liked getting back into the characters lives and slowly remembering what happened in Explorer X: Alpha. At times the plot was little confusing but I was really tired while reading it so that could have had something to do with it.
I didn’t like the fact that as the story progressed the characters started to keep secrets from each other and not communicate, it was aggravating but I guess that helped add to the suspense.
I enjoyed learning more about their powers and the different worlds. The overall arc that was created become more complex and intriguing which I really liked.
Overall I think this is a fun book that would be great for upper middle grade.
Be sure to check out my review of Explorer X: Alpha!

And don't forget to check out the rest of the tour!
