    I nearly gave up on this novel which is a very rare thing for me indeed It was too slow for too long I can't recall exactly when I started to get interested but I think is was around one third or of the way in The general Australian YA reader will not persevere through the slow start and the unfamiliar time and place it is set World War two England and so it will be a hard one to recommend The premise is interesting enough returned children who have been abducted by aliens many years previously and the teams that hunt for these mysterious happening Once the action picks up it is uite an entertaining read The main protagonistnarrator Jack Carmody has some special abilities and is recruited to the department that investigates anything supernatural Although the story starts off with his abilities being central it doesn't really follow through its focus lies almost entirely on the abilities of the returnees I found that a short coming It is two books in one and it is disconcerting when half way through it swaps to the second returnee's story and gives repeated information from the first half of the novel

    Two books in one with characters who suddenly return to their home looking exactly the same 30 40 years after they disappeared I enjoyed the books but think I would have enjoyed them if I had taken a short break between them and read something else in between as some parts felt a little repetitive Small uibble though and for the most part it was an intriguing sci fi read

    This was okuite an interesting story and good wartime setting I don't enjoy books with time travel or aliens though so it wasn't really my thing Easy to read

    The book is amazing because the characters are so real you feel like they are in front of you not as if it is a book
