The Strand Prophecy, by J.B.B. Winner, was an epic science fiction tale about a reluctant superhero and his family. "Strand", as he is known, is also the wealthy technological genius Steve Cutter, who lives on an enormous boat named Gaia. He is the only one who can protect the innocent against rapidly evolving creatures whose first choice of prey is: us.
Soon, Steve (or Strand) is on a whirlwind journey around the world to stop the mutated creatures before they become out of hand. Along the way he and his eclectic crew made up of a robot, a super-monkey, an aquatic humanoid, and a veterinarian are trying their best to save the human race...while at the same time hiding Strand's true identity from his niece, Anna.
I absolutely loved this book! It was funny, scary, and packed with advanced technology that right now we can only dream about. The characters were believable, and you felt as if you really got to know and love them over time. I can't wait for the next installment in this series!
This book gets 5 out of 5 stars.
