REVIEWS:
Here's what they are saying!

An intriguing world where only the strongest survives. A forbidden romance – Bandits is a Fast-paced adventure that is filled with Great Details and non-stop action. * LovLivLife Reviews

Right from the start this book was filled with none stop action and was jam-packed with adventure. This book had me fighting sleep so I could stay up and finish it faster. * Bo0ki3

The dialogue between the guys feels realistic, which is rare for YA. There's tons of danger from vicious animals, carnivorous plants, crazy monsters and regular bad guys, plus the main villain is very disturbing. And as a reward at the end of all this hair-raising peril, the characters discover something truly cool and surprising. Bandits will work fine for female readers, especially since Jade is a great character and her interaction with Daniel is so fun, but it'll probably be even more appealing for guys, what with all the action-adventure and the strong male lead. * All Consuming Books

In a nutshell, this story is an action-packed adventure for any energetic teen who's ever been lost, misguided, or betrayed. With sprinkles of the Pirates of the Caribbean to Star Trek, the thrill-ride is endless. * Writer's Alley

The author's son wanted "a gritty pirate tale." Wow! I'd say he got that and more! After all, this pirate tale is not only gritty, it is out of this world--Merwin! * Book Reader's Heaven

If you are a fan of science fiction and adventure, you really must check this book out. It has a wonderful storyline that you will surely want to sink your teeth into. Grab a copy and pull up a seat. I don't think you will be disappointed. * Eva's Sanctuary

One of the main reasons I found why I could read Bandits is because of the images she weaves, the creatures and world she created, and how they all work together. I have a healthy respect for a writer who can create a whole new world with creatures you’ve never heard of and have it all fit in together. * Bookish Ardour

Bandits is a story that can appeal to both genders. Along with being action-packed and full of creepy-crawly creatures, Bandits also has blooming romance and loyal friendships.This book literally takes it all on. It's action, fantasy, mystery, sci-fi, romance and young adult all rolled into one. This gives the book appeal to both male and female readers. The characters are also diverse in race which gives readers of all ethnicities a commonality.From page one this story is absolutely jam-packed with adventure. The adventure is literally non-stop. The characters are constantly on the run fighting for their lives, the lives of those living on their planet, as well as the planet itself.Preston puts so much description into the writing, it's hard to not visualize what she wants readers to see. She also has a deep imagination. The planets, space travel and even the trials that Daniel and his friends face are incredibly unique. The creatures and the different worlds she created are astounding.A great book for any YA reader who is into the sci-fi and fantasy elements. Due to language, I would recommend a slightly older audience.A great quote from page 245 of Bandits ARC (subject to change): "You can be scared and brave, swallow your fear and do what needs to be done."read more

BanditsBy: L.M. PrestonStep into a world within the pages of “Author L.M. Preston’s” Novel, that is liken unto a futuristic “Pirates of The Caribbean”, “Star Wars”, and a major splash of “Battlestar Gallactica” ……Main Character “Daniel” finds himself in a very precarious situation as he now becomes not only responsible for his younger brother “Nickel”, but also in the hard place within himself as a result of their father’s untimely death, for which he will revenge…..But also a wet behind the ear cousin “Faulk” and a 16yr old girl named “Jade”……..Life for Daniel was always rough, now it is about to become even more adventurous…..I Love “Author L.M. Preston’s” way of detailing each and every character…..The storyline’s that she so creatively builds around each character’s life and within each chapter…..I really don’t think “Pirates of the Caribbean’s Jack Sparrow” had anything on Daniel, sonrisa…..A truly riveting other world space ride that will keep you on your toes, and hurrying to the next page…..A definite Must Read!!!!Reviewed By: De Ann “Native” Townes Jr. Author of: “Peer Inside My Soul and See Me”Note: Was given a copy for reviewing purposesread more

The first quality of the book that struck me as amazing was the ability of the author to describe the scenes in such descriptive detail. The reader will literally be able to see each scene through the main characters eyes; the scenes will be tactile, the reader will feel as if they are truly in the moment. The main character lives on Zukar, an area where thieves/criminals live. The main character is trained by his father to become a criminal. Quite quickly, his father dies and the main character is left with the need for revenge and a need to know why his father as killed. His best friend, Faulk, accompanies him on his journey to find out the truth. He discovers that his father had stolen a treasure, his father had not shard with the Zukar. The treasure may have the potential to destroy the world. The book is littered with pirates, the characters are exciting to read about and follow. The plot is very interesting, a new twist containing pirates. The scenes are graphic and tangible. This book is great for teens/young adults.read more
