Zenn Scarlett

DISCLAIMER: I received Zenn Scarlett as a publisher ARC from Strange Chemistry in exchange for my honest review.

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

When I first finished Zenn Scarlett, I rated it in at 3 stars. The book was good, don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t really stand out to me at all. It was very typical for my tastes. But here I am, 3 days later, and every time I’ve tried to pick my next book to read, I can’t find anything that peaks my interest. Apparently, Zenn Scarlett had a stronger effect on me than I thought.

It’s one of those books where you get so involved in the story that you forget you are reading a book.

Zenn Scarlett starts out with Zenn, a hardcore teenage girl, if not a bit anti-social. She is an exoveterinarian novice, meaning she’s training to become an veterinarian for alien species. She lives on a compound, or cloister, with her uncle and a few workers where they take care of the animals.

I don’t know what I was expecting, Zenn to go on some crazy adventure to save the cloister? Zenn to get kidnapped away, and have to fight her way back? The entire book took place at the cloister and it was incredibly refreshing. It’s not an adventure book, it’s a creative look into a futuristic veterinarian life (with, of course, some exciting conflict).

Zenn is a refreshing and bold character. She’s smart and knows it, but also has her faults. She’s got passion and will do anything to be what she wants in life.

The cloister was very fun to read about, along with all of it’s alien inhabitants. It was hard to picture some of the creatures at times, but as Zenn continued to work with them, the images slowly came to mind.

I would recommend this book for the younger crowd, it’s a bit juvenile in that there’s not much romantically going on. It’s a really easy read, and I think anyone on the younger side of YA fantasy will really enjoy it.
