Easy Does It is book one of the Haurenthian Chronicles, a young adult fantasy/science fiction series written by Lisa Landtroop. Sara and Brandon have been best friends since they were little kids. They’re both in college now. Brandon’s a rich kid and never had to work very hard for anything, unlike Sara who’s driven and a bit ambitious. Brandon’s somewhat lackadaisical attitude to life changes pretty drastically when he becomes a lab partner with Leo in their physics class. Leo seems to know everything about science, quantum physics and just about anything else. Suddenly Brandon is enjoying studying science, and he even takes part in a science fair. Sara and Brandon are having their usual pre-class early morning cup of coffee, when Brandon receives a special message from Leo. In it, Leo says that it’s imperative that Brandon meet him immediately at the library in the cookbooks section and to be sure to bring Sara along.
Lisa Landtroop’s young adult fantasy/science fiction novel, Easy Does It, is entertaining and exciting. Leo is from another planet, and his star-hopper is disguised as a 1970s love van, complete with orange shag carpeting. Leo, Brandon and Sara are great characters to pal around with. They’re irreverent and funny, but they also become intrepid space explorers who answer Leo’s call. After all, the future of planet Earth is in their hands. Landtroop’s writing is breezy and fast-paced, and I quickly got involved in this deliciously different science fiction tale. I enjoyed watching the verbal sparring of the three friends as they explore alien planets and fight the evil Moogay invaders. I’m looking forward to the next book in The Haurenthian Chronicles. Easy Does It is a lot of fun, and it’s highly recommended.
