Thirty-five years ago in the Alaskan wild, an American scientist and a Russian soldier discover a satellite half buried in the snow. A door on the satellite suddenly opens and they are enshrouded in a mist that came from inside the satellite. Later they discover that they appear to have acquired superpowers.
For the next thirty-five years thereafter Cobalt protected all things American and raised seven children, only one of which was her natural child. The first six were fathered by men who were the highest in their chosen careers using IVF and surrogacy to bring offspring to term. The Rusian soldier who became known as the Fury of Russia, was a brutal person as were his offspring.
Upon Cobalt’s demise, the Fury of Russia began a systematic killing of Cobalt’s children so he could rule the U.S.A.
Initially, I thought Cobalt Blue was a tad on the slow side, however, the book did pick up as I read more of the story. And while it is marketed as a novel, I think that at 182 pages it must be considered a short novel.
This brings me to my rating.
After reading the first few chapters I had Cobalt Blue provisionally rated as a three-star book, however, as my reading progressed so did my rating.
