The Spec Set

I would like to thank the author for giving me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. Receiving the book for free does not affect my opinion.




Inter-dimensional espionage is child’s play.

Sucking liquid nitrogen-frozen popsicles in a geek hostage program (science camp) is the last way Emile wants to spend his summer, but when a camp chemistry experiment explodes into a full-blown FBI accusation against his little brother Max, Emile has real work to do.

Emile knows Lilly Fang can help, and will if he can avoid antagonizing her for ten minutes. Actually, Lilly Fang has a lot of secrets, including a lifelong neurological condition, a set of fantastical superpowers, and a reporting relationship with the CIA. Lilly assembles a defensive team on Max’s behalf. The teens will need all their strength (and their weaknesses) to find the thief and foil a potentially universe-spanning bomb threat. The chase will take them as far as the Y Universe, where physical laws make everything chemically unpredictable.

The Spec Set is a contemporary fantasy like The Breakfast Club meets X-Men.


This book is certainly different and something that we really need in his time.

With more focus on diversity and disabilities, as we move forward, this is the kind of book that we need to see more and more.

This book surprised me in ways that I haven’t been surprised in far too long and it made me wanna stay and keep reading. I finished this book in just about 4 days and considering how hectic my life has been, I would consider that a very big achievement.

When I sat to read this book, I had no idea what to expect but as I continued to read, I started to love it and couldn’t put it down. I am so glad that I read this book!

The writing style was very good and engaging. It made you wanna keep reading until the end of time.

It was also very fast-paced which is something I really like. The book continues at a pace where you can understand what is going on but also lets you wonder a bit about what is happening.

I really liked this book and I hope that you all will too!

Anyone who liked sci-fi and going on new bookish adventures!


Anyways, what did you all think of my post? Are you all going to read this book? Do you find it to be interesting? Tell me in the comments below. Will be waiting to hear from you all, it means a lot to me.

Peace out cuties ♥
