Max and the Spice Thieves is a work of fiction in the epic fantasy, action, and adventure sub-genres aimed at young adult readers, and was written by author John Peragine. The book follows the hero Max Daybreaker as he joins a group of spice pirates on a quest to find his missing mother. Picking up a gallery of interesting new friends to help him on his journey, Max and his allies must survive dangerous worlds filled with deadly creatures, but as each challenge is met, Max learns a little bit more about his own strange and secretive past.
Author John Peragine has crafted a superb fantasy tale which will certainly capture the hearts and minds of the intended young adult reading audience, as well as older readers seeking a fresh sense of adventure from a youthful perspective. One of the things which I really admired about the work was its imaginative quality and craft of language, bringing the colourful characters and magical settings to life in a way that feels like blockbuster cinema. The dialogue was a special highlight too, serving not only to characterize the amazing and distinct voices of the different people whom Max meets, but also providing a clever way to get the plot exposition out without reams of thick backstory or prose that takes you out of the action. This keeps the work relevant and involved for every scene, increasing the tension and sense of adventure. Overall, I would highly recommend Max and the Spice Thieves to fans of epic journeys, fierce battles, and all-out fantasy adventure. A cover to cover thrilling ride.
