City of Cruelty and Copper showcases some pretty awesome ideas, and while I did enjoy it I found that it was a bit too much for me to fully appreciate. Fable was fifteen when she was made immortal by the Fountain of Youth, discovered by pure accident after a group of survivors find an ancient city under the ice of Antarctica. Now she’s become the symbol of their city. I liked how hardened Fable was to begin with, and after seeing what she goes through on Temperance Day and leading up to it, it’s very easy to see why. The people in this city are a tad crazy. If she’s the symbol of your city why put her danger? However I definitely think the whole idea was interesting and fast paced enough to keep me reading. There is a section told from a descendant of hers towards the middle, which is also pretty good I just hope it ties in with Fable a bit more in the next one. My main problem is that I left this story with way more answers than I had answers, but I own the second novella so I’m definitely curious enough to continue.

This is an awesome start to a series. I cant wait to read more about Fable. The whole idea behind this story is amazing. Its a different way of thinking about a post apocalyptic type world. I was extremely sad for the things Fable had to go through. Then towards the end that sadness turned to anger. I'm so ready for the next installment of the Temperance serious. I just have to know what happens next. Its worth reading! Plus its free right now. You cant beat that!

The premise behind this story is something that sounds so unique and has a lot of potential. Nuclear warfare destroying Earth, people living beneath the permafrost, a fountain of youth. All of those things should come together and make for one epic story that would be completely unforgettable.

And for the most part, I think it accomplishes that. I couldn't read this book fast enough, and I had so many questions that I wanted answered. Some of them were answered, but most were not. Which is fine, because this is only the first book in the series and (hopefully) the next part will be out sooner rather than later! I have to know what happens to Fable next.

The part that kind of threw this book off for me though was that the middle section was not from Fable's perspective. Instead, we're given a glimpse into what Temperance Day is like from the viewpoint of one of Fable's descendants. It was interesting, sure, but I'm not entirely convinced at this point that it was entirely necessary. Maybe if this was a full length book instead of a novella, and his character was developed a little bit more. I felt like it was an aside that only added a little bit of world-building and not much else.

I also thought that this whole this book could have been novel length instead of novella length, and that it was just missing a lot of information about the world and the characters. Sure, I sympathized with Fable and felt all of her emotions as if they were my own, but I just wanted more. I think this would be a really good series to read once it's all completed, and I would recommend it to fans of YA sci-fi and dystopian stories. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out of the next installment! 3/5

While the story is good, it could have been great with a bit more length. There simply wasn't enough backstory, detail or character development to make the story great. I caught quite a number of typos, which made getting through some parts a little difficult. I wanted more and I was left feeling dissatisfied with the entire book. I will read the next book, as it was free, but I don't hold out hope that it will be the great story it could be.

Interesting plot twists in this short jaunt to a dystopia civilization more than 2000 years in the future. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
