If this book seems to your thing then buy it cause you won't be sorry!!! Look into Mark's other books as well. Some of the first in the series can be found free or seriously on sale. That is how I first found him and now he is one of my favorite authors!!!!!

It starts off really well by introducing the main characters and the life they live. There are various clans of people and they breed people to send off to fight against each other. It initially seems as though it is too heavily influenced by The Hunger Games and Divergent scenarios but does actually evolve into its own story. So it jumped on the band wagon but only to hitch a ride a short before jumping right off again. Good.
The main story gets going quite quickly with the key characters making a discovery. This makes them wonder about what the world is and what the wars they are being bred to fight in are for. They receive some training before they are sent off, and this is where I started to get a little bit disappointed. Things just seem to happen a little too fast as though Mr Tufo couldn’t wait to get to the next bit. Before you know it one of the central characters has become something special. Then , again, before you know it a load more characters / clans have arrived and everyone is fighting or planning alliances and I was left wondering if I had just read it really fast or if it had just been very brief. Then the story telling starts to slow down to a more sensible pace. The action is great, the characters build up at a reasonable rate and the whole thing becomes much easier to read.
That may make it sound like I didn’t like the book. I did like it though. The characters interact in a similar style to Mr Tufo’s previous work and it looks like people will appear and disappear in a similar way too. I’ve given this three stars instead of four purely because of the occasional sections that just seem rushed. I will still read the next books in the series but hopefully they won’t suffer the same problems. Fingers crossed because as a story it looks very promising.
Born and bred to fight and die in a war that has been ongoing for as long as their clan can remember friends Winter, Cedar & Tallow, are given a life line after a huge discovery and some revolutionary acts.
Winter is the prime hero in this story and she is indulged with two love interests, although I found her confusion, deep feelings and then switchero a little shallow I must remember she is a mere 17yrs old, MT gives her calm and wisdom beyond her young years. Cedar is thankfully the comedic scene stealer.
Cedar manages to fall in love several times with various kilt wearing gents via her new found love of reading romance, always seems to pop up from behind some rock to over hear a private conversation and generally bringing some humour to a harrowing situation/setting.
Thrown into this seemingly endless and selfish war machine, the trio struggle to survive the onslaught, barely equipped, under nourished and most definitely not trained to fight.
As the various clans in the war spar and try to gain ground or make alliances it is Winter who shines, discovering a unique talent and is shown her true destiny.
But can she live long enough to fulfil it?
I enjoyed the lack of guns and the epic sword fighting scenes.
The treachery, deceit and double crossing is amazing and I can’t wait to get my paws on the next instalment.
Another element to bring the Talbot clan into another universe, that little bugger gets around. Even the epilogue is filled with Talbotisms!
How I loved reading about Trip again!
Then I started on the Talbot zombie journals... read every one, one after the other.... until I got to the last one and realised I'd have to wait until the end of January for the next one.
So I decided to read Dystance... wow.
Another Talbot book and just as good as all of the others... I am HOOKED on these books.
I'm a massive dystopian/apocalyptic fan and have read a huge amount of books.
I love Joseph D'lacey, Stephen King and David Moody.. but, Mark Tufo is my favourite author.
Dystance doesn't have the same humour as the Zombie/Talbot journals (pure lol) but, I couldn't put this book down.
Brilliant, brilliant book.
The plot keeps you guessing and the characters keep you riveted.
Another success for Mark Tufo.
