I earne this as an E-copy, via Netgalley but my opinion does not change.Initially, I ha little isappointed with his because once again, as with Thor: Dueling with Giants, I was lead to believe that this ha a comic!

I do ind it a little annoye that there 's really much resources all written by different creators!

I ’ ve enjoyed many books featuring the Avengers in Marvel ’ s YA line of novels So, I was excited to inally read one with these space misfits.

hat excitement quickly faded.The Guardians of the Galaxy are known for havin a dysfunctional family- a group of highly trained anti-heroes/space mercenaries with some very cool technology who travel through the galaxy.

As I have gotten older, I enjoy stories with more substance and middle grade books just so not cut it for me anywa.

I hought it wa an interesting " plot twist " ( view spoiler) [ how, after the planet ( or, a kingdom or certain region of the eart) reaches a certain level of technology, something 'happens' that destroys said kingdom and reduces them back to the Stone Age ( hide spoiler) ].

( view spoiler) [ It is a bit odd, though, because thi uthor has Quill being a womanizer when he appear to ave clearly set his affections and heart solely on Gamora at the nd of secon ovie.

I was sceptical about setting the entire book on planet like the uthor did; I ha so sure how well it would work.

( hide spoiler) ] ( view spoiler) [ It was crazy to me, but elements of thi nove felt like some sor of mishmash of other story ideas.

Anyway, it was creep how much of the book disappointed me of elements of other stories I have read.

( hide spoiler) ] ( view spoiler) [ I did like them finding the space ship at the beginnin and piecing together what was happening to the eart, why the different kingdoms could only develop and advance to a ertain point before being destroyed.
