Neola: A Fight For Freedom, penned by author Steven Weaver, is a work of fiction in the action and adventure genre. It is aimed at young adults and contains only some mild scenes of violence. The book follows the life of Brad: a young man whose perfect life is shattered when his family has to flee their home. But as they are getting ready to evacuate, Brad meets the captivatingly unique Neola, a mysterious young woman in possession of something powerful that has painted a target on her back. Brad feels compelled to give up on escaping to safety with his family for working with Neola to fight back against the enemy which is driving them from the lives they had built.
Author Steven Weaver has crafted a fascinating and thrilling adventure that young adult readers and the young at heart will be sure to enjoy. I, for one, was especially pleased with the themes of social protest and young people taking power, which are very up and coming in the genre right now. In terms of technical craft, the realism presented in Brad makes him a highly relatable young man, vulnerable to his emotions, but also strong and amicable, so it’s easy to root for him and end up on the edge of your seat as he faces more and more dangerous situations in the plot. As for Neola herself, what a showstopping character, with enigmatic dialogue and beautiful descriptive work. To uncover her many mysteries, I would highly recommend reading Neola: A Fight For Freedom if you enjoy action-packed thrillers with emotional resonance too.
