This book is Sci-Fi to me it has a lot of science fiction things.Like powers,alien guns,ALIENS most of all.It's a good book but that an AWESOME!! book.On a rate of 1-10 i would give it a 7.I liked it but it lacked something,something I can't quite put my finger on.
Iwould recommend this book to Science-Fiction lovers. :) Because this book has ALOT! of it.
