Book Review Of “The Expedition” By Chris Babu @TLCBookTours


Drayden and his friends thought nothing could be harder than the Initiation. Little did they know it had only been a warmup for the challenge that lay ahead.

With New America’s situation dire, Drayden and the pledges venture out into the unexplored world outside the walls, escorted by a team of elite Guardians. The group seeks to contact another civilization in what remains of Boston, but Drayden has secret goals of his own.

Dangers abound in the real world, including Aeru, the deadly superbug that wiped out humanity. While they battle the elements of a desolate landscape, a power struggle emerges within their ranks. The Guardians seem to be carrying out a covert mission themselves, and the quest turns everything they thought they knew about New America upside down.

Thank you TLC Book Tours for gifting me both books in this series, in exchange of an honest review.

Since this is the second book in the series, I don’t like to do great in depth reviews, and I don’t talk about the plot, as to not spoil it for readers. I will say that I enjoyed both books, they are both really out of my realm of genres, but I still enjoyed them. If you look at the reviews on Goodreads, there are a lot of 4 and 5 Stars, and it seems like this is a very much loved series. I do agree with giving this book 4 Stars. I really had a great time, delving into this world.

The writing, and plot was creative, and flowed very well. The plot, while it’s be done before, was good. If Sci-Fi, and the end of Humanity type of books are your favorite, than you will definitely love this series. 

Below is the link and Synopsis to Book One, “THE INITIATION” Book One in the series.

As featured on CNN, The NY Post, and Bloomberg!

Everyone is equal. But no one is safe.

In a ruined world, Manhattan is now New America, a walled-in society based on equality. But the perfect facade hides a dark truth.

A timid math geek, sixteen-year-old Drayden watches his life crumble when his beloved mother is exiled. The mystery of her banishment leads him to a sinister secret: New America is in trouble, and every one of its citizens is in jeopardy.

With time running out, he enters the Initiation. It’s a test within the empty subway tunnels—a perilous journey of puzzles and deadly physical trials. Winners join the ruling Bureau and move to its safe haven. But failure means death. Can Drayden conquer the Initiation, or is salvation out of his grasp
