The Athena Effect
The Athena Effect Book One
By Derrolyn Anderson
Cali was born and raised without any modern conveniences having been secreted away by her parents. Completely off the grid until one day when both her parents are in a motorcycle accident that leaves Cali orphaned. She soon moves in with her aunt and her sleazy boyfriend biding her time until she can return to the countryside that she loves so much. That is until she meet Cal and he shows her there is more than just amenities she will be missing.
First you have a great storyline of a girl who knows nothing of modern day society except what she has read in books, which the author did an amazing job in bringing to life, then you have the reason she has been kept hidden adding a whole new dimension to the novel. I am fast becoming a fan of Derrolyn Anderson as her writing is fantastic and her stories are truly unique and captivating. This is no exception The Athena Effect has aspects of fantasy and science fiction rounded out by the young adult genre turning this into one fascinating novel. I cannot wait to see where the rest of this series will take us as Cali and Cal are two of the most interesting characters I have come across and when you add in the characters that appear towards the end there is no doubt you will want more.
