In the not-too-distant future, in a place called Satellite City, thirteen-year-old Cosmo Hill is unfortunate enough to come into the world unwanted by his parents. And so, as are all orphaned boys his age, Cosmo is dipped in a vaccine vat and sent to the Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys-freight class. At Clarissa Frayne, the orphans, called "no-sponsors," are put to work by the state, testing dangerous products that never should be allowed near human beings. By the time the no-sponsors are sent to their cardboard utility pipes, given their nightly meal pack, and finally fall asleep, they are often covered in burns, bruises, or sores from the work of the day. Cosmo Hill knows that he must escape, even though he has no idea what might be waiting for him on the outside. He plans for the moment when he can make a break. When that moment finally comes, he nearly dies while escaping. But he is rescued by a gang of "Supernaturalists," a motley crew of kids who all have a special psychic ability-one that Cosmo is about to learn he has as well. They "see" supernatural Parasites-tiny, translucent creatures who feed on the life force of humans.

    " I had wanted to read more science fiction this year and this is a recommendation from my fifth graders helping me to achieve my goal. So glad I got my hands on this action-packed adventure! Science fiction will still not become a favorite genre of mine but reading this title has shown me that there is much to gain from including science fiction in my selection from time to time. The science stuff in the story is totally intriguing and I guess that's what makes a really good science fiction: the science has to be believable enough to convince the reader that it could be happening one day. So, yes, I enjoyed going on this adventure with Cosmo Hill and his new-found friends, each one of them an interesting character on a quest to save the world while dealing with his/her own past. As always, Eoin Colfer has done a fabulous job in keeping the reader hooked with several unexpected twists and turns to the story. - However, here is one downside to the book, fortunately one you can avoid: the blurb gives away far too much. It's almost a summary and I would have found it very annoying to read before getting started with the book. Fortunately, several of my fifth graders had recommended it so highly that I hadn't even bothered to look at the blurb. Thanks guys, that was a great recommendation! "

    " This was an nice quick read, with nothing to mentally straining. I enjoyed the characters, but some of the interaction between them was a little predictable. "

    " It was the first Eoin Colfer book that I had read besides the Artemis Fowl series. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was almost as good as Artemis Fowl. I really enjoyed this book. "
