Queen of Tarts Review

of Clutch by J.A. Huss

 

Clutch is a¬†fast paced, addicting,¬†science fiction adventure that hooked me from the start. When I first read about the book and saw that the heroine was 19 years old I assumed it was a YA novel. Ummm… It’s NOT! Junco is a damaged, tough, messed up cookie and she has a mouth on her like a sailor. She swears all the time. :p There’s also violence and adult situations (not as much as I’d hoped for :p but the beginnings of a romance).

Junco’s tough, she takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’. I liked Junco, actually I adored Junco! This is a first person novel… That’s not my favorite perspective normally, but for this story I was immediately sucked into Junco’s head and her world and held on tight¬†for the ride.¬†This is an adventure story, a vengeance story and a mystery and even the sparks of a love story… Its a story with science,¬†politics, war, lies, intrigue¬†and destiny. The world building felt so organic and real. The pieces of her¬†life are stacked up¬†naturally and never felt like “So Bob,” kind of details. ūüôā Everything seemed to flow and because her world is not so unfamiliar from ours I was able to easily suspend disbelief and enjoy this tale of humans in a possible future, aliens with wings, gene splicing and cloning and a host of other fascinating details.
