I will admit up front that this is not the genre I usually seek out to read. Dystopia perfectly describes the location and lives of the main characters in The City: The Jane Harvest. However, after reading the Prologue, I had to know what became of 53-year-old Dr. Jane Dawn, Chief Officer of War Medicine, NASA.
At that point, the reader is immediately thrust 150 years later in the City, specifically in FDA testing site 32. Dr. Jane Dawn, now known as Isla Jane, is given an assignment in the Biome Repair Elixir department of the Foundry, where she is “trying not to blow up, not to die, not to disappear into nothingness, not to think, not to do anything other than survive.” And, try, Isla does! Over and over, and just when you think she has possibly met her end, she beats the odds as she tries to find her way back Home. I will not offer any spoilers here other than to say:

I find in reading other fiction by author Nicky Hjort, i.e.; A Sinister Bouquet: Awakening and A Sinister Vision: This Much Is True, her masterful use of simile and metaphor works equally well in this novel. Her descriptions are so clear and precise that you can see and hear all the action. I am eager to read Book 3 in her Sinister Series and more from The City.
I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.
Well, this was really good! I loved the world that was created here, and I found the special aspects and nuances of this dystopian land intriguing. The main character's inner monologue and self talk was one of my favorite things, though. It was really a cool way to humanize her in a world where that's not much of a thing lol. The Orb felt a bit Hunger Games-ish to me, but it had its own thing going on, a different way of playing the game, and I thoroughly enjoyed the tension that built up.
And I want more.
I think fans of Dystopian worlds will enjoy this.
