Imagine the agents of CONTROL as furry house pets and then the agents of KAOS as insects and you have the basic idea of PURST (Pets of the Universe Ready for Space Travel). These fearless pets each have their assigned space station (home) where they defend their humans from alien attack (insects). If you have read any of the Binky the Space Cat stories, then you know all about PURST. But Binky is just a field agent. The pet in charge of the whole operation is Fluffy, that's Sergeant Fluffy Vandermere to you. Fluffy rose through the ranks and now oversees the safety of our entire planet from his desk. But time working behind a desk is bound to dull event the sharpest agent, right? When HQ itself comes under attack, Fluffy is the only one who can save the day.
Filled with pets practicing their skills with fly swatters and bug spray, or waiting in line at the restroom (on the poop deck, of course), HQ is a large complex. Watching Fluffy whip out the flypaper or squeeze through secret passages, we can cheer for our hero to take control back from the enemy. The scene of the aliens torturing the cadets by spritzing them with water bottles is an hilarious scene.
Readers who enjoy funny stories about pets or secret agents will have a great time reading the latest adventure of those daring agents from PURST and their fearless leader.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
