The Boy Who Glowed in the Dark by Orest Stelmach


22512091

A satisfying ending to a good series Bobby Kungenook and his guardian Nadia are both aware that the locket he has always worn contains part of a groundbreaking formula that could counteract the effect of radiation poisoning.  When Bobby receives an email from a person known as Genesis II, it suggests that the sender has the other half of the formula and would like Bobby to meet with him in Japan. Nadia and Bobby agree that the opportunity is not one they can pass up, so they are off to Japan.

Once they get to the meeting place, things start to go wrong.  Genesis II is kidnapped and Bobby is shocked to see someone from his past.  When Bobby takes off on his own in an attempt to follow the kidnappers, Nadia is hot on his trail trying to keep him safe. The first two books brought us an interesting look inside the Ukrainian culture and the resulting consequences of the Chernobyl disaster.  The third book brings us an additional look at the Fukushima nuclear meltdown initiated by the 2011 tsunami in Japan.  We all saw the horrifying pictures of the tsunami, and watched as the Japanese fought to contain the nuclear meltdown.  The upheaval it left behind and the potential for more disasters of this level are all the more emotional to read about since this was such a recent happening.  In reality, if the formula in this book was real, it would indeed be a treasure beyond price to good and bad guys alike.

This is a fast-paced and exciting conclusion to the Nadia Tesla series.  I was very satisfied with the unpredictable ending.  I am also very positive that there will be readers who aren’t so satisfied.  Which will you be?
