Waypoint Kangaroo: A Novel by Curtis C. Chen


26114364

Kangaroo was an orphan who stumbled upon the unique and supernatural ability to create a pocket universe to stash things in.  As he grew up, the government nabbed him to work for them as a spy.  He has been physically implanted with tools that come in handy for all sorts of things a spy might need.  He has his own handler, his own doctor and his own gadget guy.  Kangaroo is a great James Bond for the future!  A bumbling, wanna-be hero who is always jumping in feet first without thinking ahead.  He is kept very busy as he travels the universe carrying out his assignments in a post-war universe.

But when his current mission takes a bad turn and his partner is killed, Kangaroo is sent on vacation while his department undergoes an audit.  He boards a cruise to Mars.  There’s only one problem.  Kangaroo doesn’t know how to deal with the term “vacation.”  He can’t quite turn off the work brain and turn on the relaxation one.  He makes a spy game out of everything he does.  When you’re looking for trouble, you usually find it!  Trouble comes in the form of a hijacked spaceship and Kangaroo must race time to save those aboard and end the potential for another war between worlds.

If I could describe this book in one word, that word would be FUN!  Kangaroo is as entertaining as they come.  What a character!  Always up to something!  Whether he is trying to relax into his vacation and have a few drinks, or chasing the bad guys, he puts himself right smack in the middle of all sorts of escapades.  This is a great book and first in a new series!

 I want to thank the publisher (St. Martin’s Press) for providing me with the ARC through NetGalley for an honest review.
