Zeeka's Ghost - A New and Insightful Review


This is the latest review the book received:
Mad scientist haunting Steven as a ghost
By Katerina Sestakova on November 21, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Five-stars

The mad scientist we know from the earlier books in the series returns as a ghost in this book.
It’s not clear if he wants to help Steven, the boy he had kidnapped and raised, or whether he wants to harm him even more than he already did.
This book is again a science fiction book showing us what our world may look like in twenty years.
Despite the advancing technology, we may remain vulnerable during storms, we may still be afraid of ghosts as well as evil humans.
Most importantly, many of us will still believe in family values, which seem to be at the core of this book.

While some people can’t forgive Steven the creation of zombies who killed their relatives, Steven deems it impossible to forgive the man who kidnapped him and raised him as a mad scientist. He was deprived of his real parents but reunited with his brother later, found a good wife and even a sister in law and a niece. It’s impossible to predict how the story will unfold and who finds an absolution.

Writing about our possible future requires a lot of knowledge and creativity. Brenda Mohammed exhibits both in all her Zeeka books, but her fourth book is probably the best one. I am already looking forward to her next book.

I love that Katerina pointed out that ' family values seem to be at the core of this book.' because it is.
It may be about a ghost which most people fear, but there are lessons to be learned from the book.
Thank you, Katerina, for this insightful review.
