Book Description:

The bonds of family go well beyond blood.

But can those bonds hold when the blood itself carries a devastating secret?

Fenlee's opal necklace had always radiated a certain warmth since her mother's death. But now, at sixteen, her world begins to unravel as the stone sparks to life, revealing itself to be an otherworldly artifact of untold power.

Between her mechatronics studies at the academy and scavenging expeditions beneath the sprawling city of New Cascadia, Fenlee and her adopted brother, Elliot, try to decipher the mysteries of her necklace and its link to events in Fenlee's past.

But they're not alone in their search.

Strange undercity dwellers offer cryptic warnings, drones track their movements, and deadly corporate agents lurk in the shadows. When tragedy rips Fenlee's family apart, she must learn to use the artifact's power to save those who are deeply precious to her. But nothing can prepare her for the dark truths that she will uncover on that journey…

“Lee,” Elliot mumbled. “I'm not who you think I am.”

My Review: 

Child of Etherclaw starts off the first book from the Etherclaw series by Matty Roberts. It is, also, my experience in reading anything by this author. Even though, I am not a huge fan of sci fi tales, I was still intrigued with the cover and had to open it up to find out what it was all about. I thought it was a really good read. I enjoyed being taken to another world for a while and escape everyday life for a few hours. I loved the characters of Fenlee and Elliot. The author does a great world does a great job describing the fictional settings that made me feel as though I was right there taking the same journey. The book was full of adventure, danger, mystery and suspense. It was not one that I could easily guess as to what was going to happen next and had to keep reading until the end.

Child of Etherclaw will be getting four stars from me. I know readers and fans of young adult, fantasy, dystopian and science fiction will want to snatch this one up. I believe they will not be disappointed. I will be on the lookout for the release of the next installment from the Etherclaw series to see where Matty Roberts’ imagination will take their readers to next. This one is definitely worth a read. 

I received a paperback copy of Child of Etherclaw from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
