    5.0 out of 5 stars Holy "FURGS" ZERO is character driv

    5.0 out of 5 stars Holy "FURGS" ZERO is character driven Science Fiction at its best
    By Readers Frenzy

    With all the political strife out there right now in real Earth time, this hits on what it means to be human; what we fight for, live for and die for. It contains rich, character driven plots, prophecies, and has enough twists and turns like a great mystery novel. Nothing is predictable. "The Legend of Zero" held me captive to the events, emotions and possibilities that unfold from the very first page, everything wanted when I read a really great book, here's why.

    Usually science fiction books take a while to settle into, not this one. Miss King's visualization grabs you by the throat from page one and doesn't let go. It begins with the numbness and mind-freeze that we all experienced at the devastation of 9-11. No, I am not trying to compare that to this book, just the FEELING. Earth is invaded; people glued to their TV's, dumbstruck as their nations bow to this nightmare, this alien takeover. They call themselves Ooreiki, tens of thousands of the "War of the Worlds", nasty kind. Fourteen year old Joe Dobbs in an attempt to keep his little brother from the aliens grasp finds himself captured; thrown onto an alien ship along with 98% of Earth's children, then transported across the universe.

    Forcibly recruited by the alien army, Joe is chosen to lead a ground-team band of misfits: Maggie, Monk, Lizzy, Elf and Scott. Everything they once knew is gone; mom, dad, home and fruit loops for breakfast. In its place is an alien army boot camp, where learning to work together as a team is a matter of survival.

    The strong characterizations of both the children and their captors constantly evolve and shift. The fact that nothing is predictable makes it wonderfully unique. You KNOW them, FEEL for them, SEE them becoming adults before their time. It is dark at times, but when 5 and 10 year olds are taking on the lives and responsibilities of full grown adults, it would be. I was glad, however, that Miss King put in some of her classic milk-thru-the-nose moments where you do laugh, relate, and nod your head in approval of a sequence of events or the antics of childhood pranks.

    Descriptions in the "The Legend of Zero" were incredibly vivid; I could see them in my mind very clearly, feeling as if I, too, were there. When they are stumbling in learning the new language, heck I related to that too, and have even called someone a "furg" since reading this book. They become the kids who could live down my street. This storyline was like a fine filament that kept unraveling more and more. Before I knew it, I had an alien tapestry before me drawn with rich characters both good and bad. At first I hated them, those Ooreiki, but as the story evolved I begun to see some of them not as aliens anymore.
    GASP! I liked them and even wanted to call a few friends by the end.

    Such a great book!

    This has become one of my favorite ScFi books. Forging Zero, and the rest of the Zero series, was amazing. I can't wait for the rest of the series to be finished. This is a true, can't put it down book.
