The prologue starts unassumingly enough, but blink and you’ll miss it as a dramatic turn of events plunges you into this thrilling Science Fiction story. The Last Children of Montauk has an interesting plot line full of mystery and tension, as perilous situations arise for the characters, I was hooked and eager to read on until the final page.
I liked the world building involved in the start of the book, the detail in describing the setting of the Montauk facility really drew me into the story and I was intrigued to find out who was there and what was happening. In this underground top-secret facility we are introduced to Arvee who, like other children, has been taken away from his family in order to have his gifts exploited. Arvee’s visions are used to find other gifted children, but also allow him to see the world outside the facility, but will the arrival of a more rebellious inmate, Mia, help them escape?
I personally think it would be beneficial to include some indication of which character we’re focusing on at the start of each chapter, however it didn’t prevent me enjoying the book and I enjoyed the switching storylines that follow action in the facility and in the outside world.
There are articles about The Montauk Project conspiracy theories online and these theories apparently inspired 'Stranger Things', fans of the TV show may find an enjoyable storyline here. I found The Last Children of Montauk to be an entertaining and thrilling science-fiction story with strong characters and was filled with tension. I was intrigued from the first chapter and, as this is Book One, I would be interested in seeing what happens in the rest of the series.
Trapped deep in the belly of a top-secret facility, Arvee longs for the world he sees in his extraordinary visions. Trained from childhood to track others like him, his world is sent spinning by the arrival of rebellious and powerful Mia.
Together, they form a plan for freedom aided by gifted others from around the world. When a devastating enemy attack leaves Mia badly injured, Arvee must decide if he should push ahead with the escape or if he's already too late.
"The Last Children of Montauk is imaginative and gripping. A dark thriller that is as disturbing as it is moving, with incredible characters you’re going to want to read more about and an intelligent exhilarating plot."
