When I laid my eyes on the first pages of The Expeditioners, metal chains sprung up and linked my eyes to the story.
Three children, explorers named Zander, Kit and MK, hold one map that could be the road to their fate… From slimy slugs to colossal birds, each child must pass them to get to the treasure everybody wants. Sukey Neville has entered the picture at the start of the journey, but is she a friend or not? How is the map supposed to be looked at? Who is good, or bad?
S.S. Taylor has mastered writing one of the most creative books that I have read. The story is based in the future, but sometimes, when I read a tale with lots of characters and an unusual time frame, the book can get confusing. Somehow the writer has managed to keep the story from becoming puzzling, which is one of my favourite things about this book. I admire how the author wrote something so original and captivating. The Expeditioners is like a crocodile that gulped me down so fast that I came out of its tail before I realized how much I enjoyed being in its stomach, in this case the middle of the story. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
