Fire Country (Country Saga #1) by David Estes

I’m so relieved that I liked this book, the only other book that I have read from this author was The Moon Dwellers, which is a good book don’t get me wrong but I’m not sure that it was for me. When I found out about the country series I was drawn in, although hesitant as it was a sister series to the Dwellers. But the good news is I liked this book!

It took me quite a while to get into however, the first 50% of the book felt pretty slow and the dialect writing took a bit of getting used to, I also felt that there was an overwhelming abundance of similes in this book and I was not a fan of that.

Now onto what I liked:

– I enjoyed the setting of Fire Country, I’ve read a lot of Dystopians but this world was different than many others that I have visited. The imagery was so strong in this book that I needed a glass of water nearby when I read it.

– I felt that the characters were realistic and the plot kept me interested.

– Also the cover is gorgeous.

I would recommend this book if you’re looking for a fresh read.

  1. The Cover Contessa

    I adore this series. Actually, I like the entire series. Honestly, you should give the second and third Dwellers books a try. Only because the final book, Earth Dwellers, combines the entire series. I’m glad you enjoyed this.
