Radioactive Revolution is a work of compelling science fiction penned by author Richard I Hummel. The sequel to story opener Radioactive Evolution, we once again pick up the adventures of Jared Cartwright and his dragon Scarlet in the dark dystopian wasteland which is now engulfed by mighty fire dragons roaming free. The forced utopias of the cities in the sky cast shadows over Jared’s efforts to revolt and unite the people, and in this new adventure, he seeks further counsel and alliances by traveling across the wilds to unite others with the same goal. But this crusade is fraught with danger, not just for Jared, but for the people he loves the most.
What I like most about author Richard I Hummel’s worldbuilding is how innovatively he uses dragons in a science fiction context, without falling back on the tropes of epic fantasy. There’s plenty of dystopian political tension for fans of adventures like The Hunger Games, but also some really great combat sequences and superhuman strength from Jared for those who prefer more of a military/action slant. The multi-genre atmosphere of the novel is further enhanced by solid writing and great pacing to keep each moment of the story moving forward, and the twists which surprise readers at the end were genuinely shocking but also cohesive and realistic to the story that came before them. Overall, Radioactive Revolution builds a powerful new adventure into a world teeming with excitement, providing an exciting sci-fi dystopia bash suitable for teens and adults alike.
