Title: Rotham Race
Author: Jordan Elizabeth
Narrator: Almost Eastland
The United States is gone; in its place is a broken country struggling to survive. A lost microchip can turn the US back into the superpower it once was. Every year, racers head out into the desert to find the microchip, but they never return.
This year, Troy is going to change all that. He plans to win the Rotham Race.
Finding the microchip, though, might not be all the citizens think. Government secrets surround the race, and the one to win doesn’t receive just fame and glory. He or she gets death.
In the future, the United States is gone, a broken country left in its wake. There is one microchip out in the desert that has the power of restoring the U.S. to its former glory. It’s for this reason that racers go out to the desert in search of it every year. Troy is determined to be the one to find it. Unfortunately for him, the winner doesn’t get fame. They get death.
This was an intense quick listen. I liked Troy. He had a solid background, and I hoped he would grow character-wise in the story to be the hero that he could be. A few of the other characters stood out as well.
I think this story might’ve worked a bit better if it was longer so some of the details were better fleshed out. There were a few areas that I noted that contradicted one another, and I think more details would’ve explained/or cleared these issues up.
I enjoyed the story nonetheless.
Narration was well done.
