Review of SpaceHive by Kenna McKinnon
“SpaceHive” is a zippy little tale which makes the “what if” of alien invasion seem probable, and even likely. Forget what you’ve read and heard about the humanoids with oblong heads and huge onxy eyes; it’s space insects we should be worrying about instead—bees and wasps. Oh, and we also need to worry about the shortsightedness of those in power, because it’s all too easy to destroy during a war, even a war against an advanced alien species.
The good news is, there are individuals like young Jason, age twelve when the aliens invade, and Aadab, a freedom fighter in India, who won’t take this invasion lying down; instead, they will use good common sense and cleverness to fight back. As long as there’s life, there’s hope.
“SpaceHive” was written for middle-grade and above, but us oldsters can enjoy it too (and this one did!)
