After buying a lump of uranium off a shifty- looking mineral trader, element collector Itchingham Loftie notices something strange.

I loved this book because it reminded me of Alex Rider- in a nerdy, clever, blow- stuff- uppish way. The climax was imaginative and the plot diverse- it made you go “Hey… Why’s this never been done before?”
This book is recommended for science nerds and adventure lovers, or if you just want something new.

S.E.T, 11
