The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Rating: 2 STARS!


The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy.

But global climate change is not something new in the Earth's history.

No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race-a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.

Now it is Owen's turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.

Review: The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson is a unique story set in a Sci/Dystopian world told from the point of view of Owen Parker, a young teenage boy. While The Lost Code was definitely not like anything I’ve ever read, I found myself trudging through the majority of the book. Emerson’s story has an extremely slow build up and for me it didn’t get very interesting until half way into the book. I love descriptions through out the story but at times it was a bit overwhelming. I enjoyed the world building and I definitely saw some great potential within the story, but I felt like the true plotline never really stood out.  I was really hoping for something a bit more fast paced and with some action. The characters through out the book were pretty flat and I never felt an intimate connection with them. Owen was boring, immature and in general not that exciting. Overall, I felt that Emerson’s book could’ve worked better for a younger audience. Although I didn’t feel drawn to the story I did enjoy the world Owen lived in. I would recommend this book for a younger male audience.
