Editorial Reviews

VOYA
In a new series based on the comic book Black Tide: Enter the Game, Justin is about fifteen, with his own fighter plane instead of a car and whose dreams hint at his being the reincarnation of an ancient warrior. His father works for "The Deceivers," an international covert spy organization that just happens to work out of U.S. military bases and has a U.S. military command structure. Tenth graders Justin and his best friend, Chad, are soon working for their fathers' secret employer, filing paperwork, and entering data. Finding the work boring, Justin begins spying for himself, hiding cameras and becoming interested in a polluted stream he discovers. Eventually he tracks the toxic waste back to the source, and routes the information to the EPA. Another plot involves Orville, a boy at school who is being bullied. Once Justin and Chad spend a couple of weeks teaching him to stand up for himself and fight back, Orville becomes a tough guy and defeats the bully. After a move to a new school and new town, Justin's father disappears on a secret mission. Justin suspects foul play and begins spying. When he discovers that the secret aircraft that his and Chad's father were flying has crashed, the boys mount a rescue operation. The teens deftly manage what the military has given up as impossible; they fly in, shoot up the camp where their parents are being kept, and pull off a rescue. Not even a likeable set of characters can save this comic-book-based action-adventure from pedestrian writing, an over-the-top plot, and general silliness. The projected series, Black Tide Rising, portends to combine history, science, technology, fantasy, and more, but it is recommended only where the comic ispopular. VOYA Codes: 2Q 3P M J (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; Will appeal with pushing; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2003, Angel Gate Press, 293p,
— Gillian Wiseman
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Based on the comic-book series "Black Tide," this book features Justin Braddock, the son of an agent for an International Special Forces group called the Deceivers. The teen has spent most of his life moving from one military base to another and having more first days of school than he can count. While Justin and his friends Chad and Orville are characters who are worth getting to know and their social issues are recognizable, the plot raises more questions than answers. There are episodes that go nowhere, such as Justin's encounter with a man who appears to be homeless, and who speaks mysteriously with hints of foreboding. Neither he nor his message is ever mentioned again. Justin suffers from horrific nightmares about violent battles that are interwoven throughout the story. In them, he is endowed with superhuman powers and easily destroys the enemy but he is left splattered with blood. Readers never learn the significance of these dreams. Finally, he rescues his father, who has been taken hostage in the Middle East, by flying with his friend Chad alone across the Atlantic. These teenagers conduct a search-and-rescue mission that the entire Special Forces Agency was not able to accomplish, and Justin's plane skims over the ground in a landing operation one could only imagine a toy model being capable of. Perhaps in the context of the comic-book series, Enter the Game works, but as a stand-alone novel, it does not.-Elizabeth Fernandez, Brunswick Middle School, Greenwich, CT Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
