    One thought on “Bandits”

    1. A great SF YA tale, worth reading. The small press could do with a tighter editing but that does not distract much from the content.The ability of the author to describe the scenes in such descriptive detail, is a quality that makes L.M. Preston is a great story teller. Each scene comes through the Daniel's eyes or his close friends; the scenes are tactile, you will feel as if they are truly in the moment. The main character lives on Zukar, an area where thieves/criminals live. The main characte [...]

    2. This is the third LM Preston book I've reviewed and I must say that I'm really happy with the results. She is an author that I've come to appreciate and am really enjoying her growth as a writer. When I read her first book, Explorer X-Alpha, while I enjoyed it, I wanted it fleshed out a bit more. I felt there was so much in it, that I wanted it explained and detailed more. When I read her second book, The Pack, I was still wishing the book was set in a fantasy series, though I understood the rea [...]

    3. Bandits Is A Story About Daniel Pierce And His Brother, Nikkel Growing Up On The Planet Merwin. He Had Grown Up In Awe Of His Legendary Father Who Was The Greatest Zukar Thief Of All Time And He Had Wanted To Be Like Him Only Better, But Rayne Had Changed Three Years Ago And Refused To Go On Snatch Jobs That Left Daniel To Clean Up His Messes. As He Lay In Bed, He Heard Shots From Downstairs And He And His Runaway From Earth Cousin Raced Down The Stairs To See His Dad Had Been Murdered! His Ten [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book. The author did a great job of making us fall in love with the characters and feel right there. Unlike many books, this one had vivid descriptions, epic world building, and AWESOME action scenes. I'm a sucker for a good pirate story and despite the language and descriptive kiss scenes (between a sixteen and seventeen year old that I could have done without) this book was really good. One little thing- When I first started I was annoyed with all the info dumping/showing tellin [...]

    5. This story grabs you from the first page. The excitement and the action begins there, and you can do nothing but cheer this young people on. Daniel is the consummate hero, a young man who has lost his father and is left to care for his brother and cousin as he runs from those who would kill him and his family for their treasure. Along the way, he picks up Jade who refuses to help unless she can accompany him, and his best friend who he trained with and just happens to be Jade's brother. They are [...]

    6. Read and reviewed on behalf of 3 Degrees of Fiction book blog.This is book 1 in a new series by L.M. Preston. Bandits is also the first book by Preston I have read. It was fun and well written but it did take me a few chapters to really get into it. Daniel is a great character who had a lot to learn for someone who knew everything. I enjoyed his growing up experience. The way he watches out for his family and friends was great. Jade was an amazing girl full of sass and it was great to see a girl [...]

    7. If Avatar and Indiana Jones had a baby, this would be it! This was everything you could want in a YA adventure! The story jumps right into the action and keeps you engaged while perfectly balancing the adventure, mystery, and romance. Preston also has an exceptional ability to describe her worlds in such lush details that you feel as if you've been transported there yourself. The romance felt natural and didn't overpower or monopolize the story either. I loved the book and can't wait to start th [...]

    8. This is the first book I've read by this author and I wasn't disappointed.We find Daniel, his little brother Nickel, his cousin Faulk and his best friends baby sister Jade as the stars of this novel. This a save the world before you die story. I'm not usually a Syfi person, but this reads like a fantasy novel wrapped in a mystery. Two of my favorite types of books.Not to give away too much but you have monsters, a space ship and aliens. As a Syfi reader you couldn't ask for more. Can't wait for [...]

    9. This book is full of amazing worlds, fantasy, a touch of romance and adventure. I loved the Indiana Jones like traps they had to go thru. Of course, their traps were littered with crazy creatures that we have never even dreamed of. It was an enjoyable read. I would definitely read more by this author!

    10. D. N. FThe concept is interesting but I didn't get the book at all its confusing for me.Hope other people like it

    11. The author's son wanted "a gritty pirate tale." Wow! I'd say he got that and more! After all, this pirate tale is not only gritty, it is out of this world--Merwin! As you read the story, especially in the thrilling escapades, please be alert to pay attention to the images, the creatures, the seemingly impossible acts that her characters face. Preston has a genius for not only having the imagination, but carrying that skill down to the "nitty-gritty" details! I'm going to include just one scene o [...]

    12. Originally and also posted on Palm Books Journal.The author of this book has requested me to review this book. And definitely, I said YES! I have been waiting for this book to arrive on my mail last month and thankfully, it finally came. My first review this May. Let’s begin shall we?The Plot. Wow, it’s just wow! Few of the books I read with some chapters are somewhat dull, not that I don’t actually enjoyed it. But this book never gave me that dull moment. I am very surprised that every co [...]

    13. In a nutshell, this story is an action-packed adventure for any energetic teen who's ever been lost, misguided, or betrayed. With sprinkles of the Pirates of the Caribbean to Star Trek, the thrill-ride is endless. The world of Zukar control is one of danger and fear. Merwin is a planet of all (or most) that is not good, roaming thieves and criminals. All do what they must to survive, including parents raising children. Fast-paced and energetic, the story is set in a time where space travel is no [...]

    14. Ever wondered how a video game would translate into a novel? Well, wonder no more because Bandits, the new novel by LM Preston, is coming out in June of this year! Bandits is about a young man - Daniel - whose father was killed because of a particular treasure that he has stolen and kept away in some hidden treasure trove. Upon his father's death, Daniel, along with his younger brother Nickel, his best friend's sister Jade, and his cousin Faulk, decides to find the treasure in the hope that it w [...]

    15. When the author, L.M. Preston, first offered me to review this book, I must admit that there was a slight hesitation in my mind because, during that time, I haven't read a book in Sci-Fi Fantasy genre yet. I figured maybe I should start reading Sci-Fi Fantasy books, so in the end, I accepted her offer. After reading her book, I realized that accepting Preston's offer was one of the best decisions I've made because Bandits is one wild ride of adventure and now one of my favorite reads!First of al [...]

    16. Bandits is a sci-fi adventure that takes the reader to an entirely new planet and introduces a society unlike anything we’d know on earth. LM Preston has a way with developing and describing the world of Merwin and dangers inherent with being a Zukar – the gangster-like thieves that populate the planet. Daniel, the main character and a Zukar himself, is a far cry from what one would expect a thief and almost-assassin to be. The word thief invokes a shady sort of character, but Daniel is youn [...]

    17. Bandits is a fun-filled, action-packed, off-world, pirate-y adventure. Along with strange creatures, science fiction and evil villains, it has endearing characters, blossoming relationships and loyal friends.Bandits is such a cool conglomeration of genres and themes. It's sci-fi, mixed with fantasy, mixed with romance, and of course, it's YA (although there is quite a bit of mature language so be warned). I loved the idea of the book--treasure-hunting--and it's made even more exciting by adding [...]

    18. As I was reading Bandits by L.M. Preston, I found myself repeatedly wondering about the visual aspects of her mind throughout and thinking how she not only has quite the imagination, but the skill to share it.One of the main reasons I found why I could read Bandits is because of the images she weaves, the creatures and world she created, and how they all work together. I have a healthy respect for a writer who can create a whole new world with creatures you’ve never heard of and have it all fi [...]

    19. I am not generally a huge science fiction fan, but Bandits had me thoroughly engrossed from the very beginning. Set mainly on a planet populated by futuristic pirates and killers, it was a unique twist on the traditional high seas pirate tales I have read. The planet Merwin is a planet unlike anything we Earthlings could ever know. There is technology of which we know nothing, creatures unlike anything we could know, and an environment completely unlike our own home planet. Yet the author someho [...]

    20. What would you do if you heard arguing and laser fire and when you ran to investigate you found your father dead, a knife in his heart in addition to the hole in his leg left by the laser? Even though your father was a Zukar, a faction of thieves on the planet Merwin, and you’ve lost all respect for him, he’s still your father and you also care for him? Add the knowledge that the murderers might be after you next and you have major problems.Author LM Preston’s novel, BANDITS, follows Danie [...]

    21. Review originally posted at Mrs. Boswell's Book Bag.Bandits is a story that can appeal to both genders. Along with being action-packed and full of creepy-crawly creatures, Bandits also has blooming romance and loyal friendships.This book literally takes it all on. It's action, fantasy, mystery, sci-fi, romance and young adult all rolled into one. This gives the book appeal to both male and female readers. The characters are also diverse in race which gives readers of all ethnicities a commonalit [...]

    22. When I first got this book I didn't think I would like it because generally I don't read books like this. But, after just the first chaper I was hooked and it was hard for me to put this book down. One of the things that I first liked about this book was how well L.M. Preston writes each scene. You can visualize everything. I found when reading every part of it that I never got bored of this book.Daniel lives on a dangerous planet called Merwin where his father had been training him to be a Zuka [...]

    23. BanditsBy: L.M. PrestonStep into a world within the pages of “Author L.M. Preston’s” Novel, that is liken unto a futuristic “Pirates of The Caribbean”, “Star Wars”, and a major splash of “Battlestar Gallactica”…Main Character “Daniel” finds himself in a very precarious situation as he now becomes not only responsible for his younger brother “Nickel”, but also in the hard place within himself as a result of their father’s untimely death, for which he will revenge…B [...]

    24. The first quality of the book that struck me as amazing was the ability of the author to describe the scenes in such descriptive detail. The reader will literally be able to see each scene through the main characters eyes; the scenes will be tactile, the reader will feel as if they are truly in the moment. The main character lives on Zukar, an area where thieves/criminals live. The main character is trained by his father to become a criminal. Quite quickly, his father dies and the main character [...]

    25. Bandits is written for ages 12 and up, it had the adult in me interested and the kid in me excited for the adventure from beginning to end. It is sci-fi genre, which isn't my norm, but I am a sucker for pirates of any type.Daniel's father Rayne is always leaving messes for him to clean up, but this time, Rayne got himself killed. Daniel and his brother Nickel now on the run from the kings officials and whomever killed their father for an unknown treasure. The only thing they have to guide them i [...]

    26. Space pirates. What more do I need to say? ;-)It took me a few chapters to really get into Bandits. I know that LM Preston writes more for a young adult male audience and that may have something to do with it; so it wasn't the book that had a problem it was me. As you should be able to tell by my rating, once I got into the story, I was kept in it. Bandits is a great story; fast paced and thrilling (I think LM likes a good puzzle).Possible spoilers:(view spoiler)[My only real issue is with Jade. [...]

    27. I won a paperback copy of this book awhile ago in return for an honest review. WOW.Right off the bat, this book was full of action from beginning to end. This author knows how to capture her audience with this remarkable Sci-Fi story. I loved the characters in the story and their individual personalities. The characters is what makes a makes a great story and this author pulled it off very well. I was intrigued of the different planets and it made it very hard to put down, because I just HAD to [...]

    28. Wow. Talk about an exciting read. LM Preston creates such a vivid world, I felt like I lived there. Daniel has a really tough time since his father died and he's left to not only take care of his younger brother but also save his world. And with his father's killer targeting him next, the task is more than a little difficult. I loved the setting, and I'm not big on book settings. I give LM a lot of credit for creating such a vivid world that sucked me right in. And the character relationships we [...]

    29. L.M. created a wonderfully unique world and full rich characters. It took a chapter to really get into the language and into Daniel's cast of friends but the adventurous plot twists were such funI've gotta check out her other books!!!!Goodread's summary of the premise: "Daniel's father has gotten himself killed and left another mess for Daniel to clean up. To save his world from destruction, he must fight off his father's killers while discovering a way to save his world. Time is running out, an [...]
