The Sightseers Agency: The Dreadnought Collective Book 5 by Terry Tumbler is one of the most creative takes on the future that I have ever read. The author is very creative and unique, creating witty dialogues, detailed descriptions, and amazing characterizations. Terry Tumbler is definitely a very talented writer. Even though this was the first time I read his writing, I felt like I knew these characters already; it was like greeting an old friend. I loved how every character was given enough space to grow and bloom and I thoroughly enjoyed their growth. The novel follows a charismatic man named Richard Pencil, who is just as unique as his name. He is a Detective who leaves the CIA to form The Sightseers Agency, an agency where people with special abilities can fight crime. Set in the not so distant future, the Earth has lost a lot of humans and gained a lot of aliens who work in favor of humans to help them survive and grow. Now their practices are becoming a little too much and it’s the job of the Agents of this Agency to weed out the wrongdoers and help the society grow to be better than ever before.

I loved all the characters, but I especially Richard, Plum Duff and Ted. They had an inert charm that oozed out of their dialogues. Their scenes became instantly interesting. I loved the way Terry Tumbler gave these characters substance. None of the characters were fillers, they had their strengths and their weaknesses and that defines the talent of this amazing writer. Superb writing, funny, entertaining and simply too good to put into words!
