Conversion was a really good science fiction novella. Quick to captivate my attention, I was pulled into the novella. The story was well-written, creative, and sweet. Scifi is not a genre I typically read but the synopsis piqued my interest. I'm glad I took a chance on Conversion as I enjoyed the story, the characters, and the world the author created.
I was provided a copy of this book to read.
Of novella length, this was surprisingly well written and engrossing: A young girl on the run from a terrifying fate just trying to survive on a technology doomed planet.
The widely used nanites have evolved beyond there original purpose: putting everyone who comes into direct contact with those infected at risk of succumbing and becoming a mindless puppet themselves.
This is the sci-fi adventure and love story of Rhodesia and Roy Planter both inhabitants of there doomed planet: both just trying to survive by whatever means necessary in a world falling apart at the very seams.
So this was told completely from Rhodesia's POV: always a risk when trying to build a romantic connection as this is sometimes hard to achieve with such a narrow perspective.
I believe Conversion would have been better served if both POV's had been used to portray the budding romance developing between our two young lovers as I did fail initially to connect with both Roy and Rhodesia as a connected and in love couple.
I just wasn't feeling the love myself if I'm being honest here.
This is also where Conversion lost marks for me: the sci-fi aspect of this was better done than the romantic side of things which really was a shame.
It was also unclear to me if these two had sealed the deal or not: really couldn't sus that one out at all: this side of there relationship was made extremely unclear and was retold in a very obscure fashion indeed.
It was only near the end when Roy was asked how he would tell Zam that he was sleeping with his baby sister that I knew for sure.
I know this was primarily a YA read but still a touch more clarification could still have been given especially considering it was implied at the end these two were in an actual carnal relationship.
The ending for me was also a bit too easily resolved as well.
So this for me had its ups and downs and while for the most part, I did enjoy this with some added character growth and maybe some lengthening of the original story this could be so much more than what it actually was.
All the bare bones are already here to work on: this just for me had a little something missing.
I still adored the original premise: it really did catch my initial attention and as I mentioned earlier this authors writing style was also a hit for me.
So yeh this really shows great potential.
I voluntary reviewed a copy of Conversion.
