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.
