Rating: 3 Cups
Melissa, a scientist working for the Centre for Disease Control, has just found a way to stop the deadly alien virus. Not trusting anyone, she escapes and winds up meeting the sisters she never knew she had. She also meets her bodyguard, the hot but aggravating Bennett.
Bennett is a genetically altered mercenary fighting against the aliens. He will do whatever it takes to protect the doctor, even though he realizes Melissa is not everything she appears to be.
The aliens are trying to come back to earth and Melissa and Bennett, along with their comrades, must stop them. Even if it means joining with unlikely partners and unknown allies.
Kicking Bots is the latest in the Ancient Enemy series from the prolific author, Vijaya Schartz. I loved how smart Melissa is, and that she understands when she is in dangerous situations, but Bennett’s character is superficial. This sci-fi has interesting plots and subplots and while it would have been helpful to have read the first two books in the series first, it was not required. The connection between the sisters was very fast, but moved the story quickly into an unexpected path that was interesting. The relationship between Melissa and Bennett, along with the other supporting characters, built in a logical time frame. The dialogue was good but could have been improved to help the superficial characters more.
