Out of Mind (Progenitor Book 2) by Matthew S. Cox is a science fiction novel set in the distant future. Sima Nuvari was an Outcast on Earth but on Mirage she has hope. Sima and the kids she rescued have been adopted and things are looking up. For Sumi, not having to run from the EGSF and having neighbors who smile at her is almost unreal. Mirage is a new Earth colony and people are into the business of survival. Even then she suspected her newfound peace was too good to last. Between finding alien ruins, fighting killer robots, and stopping a planet-wide catastrophe, Sima and her friends have quite an adventure.
I never read the first book in this series but it didn’t stop me from enjoying Out Of Mind. Sima is a likable girl with a penchant for trouble which means a lot of action happens around her. I liked her and her friends. Matthew S. Cox does a good job of showing how kids are impacted when they don’t have a proper foundation in the beginning. On the bright side, Sumi and her ‘kids’ get a second chance in life. A good adoption situation is a big plus in this book. Sumi’s life on Earth with her biological parent was hard and she gets genuine people to be her new parents. I loved the portrayal of space and the inventions that may be in humanity’s future. The AI computer Omni made the story most interesting. I want one of those. I hope there will be more stories in this series because this one was very enjoyable.
