About the Book:

Burned Bridges Protocol CoverThe Burned Bridges Protocol by Abigail Borders
238 pages, young adult, science fiction

Seven hundred years ago, disaster forced humanity to abandon Earth. Life on the colony ship New Edinburgh is all sixteen-year-old Lilliane, the best programmer in her year at the Institute, has ever known. A week ago, Lilliane woke up in a life-pod. Its destination? Earth itself. Because it's time to rebuild. It's up to Lilliane and the four other survivors of the New Edinburgh to reclaim humanity's ancestral home. Today, the life pod arrived at Lady Diana--the lunar holding station that was once the luxury holiday destination for Earth’s super-rich. It’s supposed to be a good place. A safe place. Not anymore. Today, Lady Di is a battlefield. Because while Lilliane and her friends thought they they were the only humans left, somebody else got to Lady Di first. And he will stop at nothing to keep Lilliane from ever getting to Earth.

My Thoughts:
I really was interested in this book. The sci-fi aspects, the coming back to Earth, etc. It is just intriguing.

Abigail did an excellent job writing this. She included great characters and made the idea into a full-on novel, without having any horribly lagging spots. I love the idea that someone got to Earth first; it reminds me of The 100. This book is full of action and fun and suspenseful keep-you-reading moments.

The only thing I did not love was that the writing was choppy in places. It slowed my reading and made it harder for me to get into it.

Overall, this was a good book with a fantastic idea behind it. It's well-executed and was a nice read.

3.5 stars
