Orion is in a pretty bad situation. Her mother is dead. So of course she follows in her footsteps and becomes a miner like she was. She is the lead ore scout. Together with Dram, they are the best scouters of cirium. Orion is the best sort of female heroine. She is brave and a bit impulsive. I loved her inability to keep her mouth shut. Dram and Orion enjoy a slow burn kind of romance that made so much sense.
This book is set in dark place, with danger all around. It seems a bit horrible to be so excited about a book where people suffer radiation burns, but it is so well described. With an undercurrent of hope, Orion and Dram travel all over this world. They encounter strange things and horrifying creatures. I actually had the heebie-gebies at one point and had to put the book down. So much imagination in this story.
The only negative I could say about this book is that it seemed like it jumped around a bit at some points. Also, I got so confused about the cordons and outposts. I suppose it could be that I didn't follow the map correctly. I have ordered the hardcover of this book so when I re-read it, and I will re-read this (even though i never ever re-read anything), I can follow along on the map. It is too close to be sure if it was just me being over eager to get through the story, or if was actually an issue with the writing. I am assuming it was me.
The feelings I have for this book cannot be adequately described in this review. Just know, I am giving this my highest recommendation to science fiction YA and dystopian YA fans. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys action packed writing.
The writing in Flashfall is so perfect. I loved reading every page of this book. I loved that the book is told from the point of view of Orion. Whom I adore beyond words. This girl is amazing. So brave and kind and awesome. I love how broken just about every person in this book is, yet they still have hope, like Orion does. She makes the best out of everything. And she's starting to fight back against certain things. And I loved that about her. Oh, how I adored getting to know this fierce girl. She was simply the best person.
I loved that this book managed to creep me out again. A lot of it takes place inside awful caves. and it was the most awesome thing to read about. Dangerous. Scary. I loved every moment of it. These caves were the worst. Nine different ones, some more dangerous than others. The most dangerous being the one that Orion and Dram have to go into every day. And ahh, the creatures. I cannot with how awesomely they were written. So good. So awful. Loved reading about them the very most. But yeah, scary as well.
The plot in this book is simply the most awesome thing. I loved reading about this world. How it is divided between everyone. How Orion is living in one of the worst places. Reading about the flash curtain was so interesting, yet so horrible. This world is awful. And I loved reading about it the most. Eee. I loved reading about all the cave parts. And the different places that Orion ended up at for a short time. Shudders. This book is heartbreaking and evil and beyond exciting. Oh, so glad that I re-read it now. Loved it the same.
What I love most about this book is the friendship and relationship between Orion and Dram. It is the cutest thing. They have been friends and cave partners for years. And this friendship is finally starting to become something more. And it's so cute and sweet to read about. Not much romance, but enough, and it's the best thing. Oh, I hope it will be just as good in book two. Eee. A bit nervous. Yet so excited. Dram was such an amazing person too. So protective and fierce. And truly awesome to get to know too. Eee.
There is so much happening at all times in this book. And I loved reading about it all again so so much. Though this book is all kinds of sad. There are a bunch of characters to get to know and start loving. And then most of them ended up dying. Ahh. It was evil. Yet so well written that I couldn't help but love it so much. The ending is pretty happy, though, ack. Which is why I worry about book two. Hmph. But so, so excited to start it next. But seriously, read this book right now if you haven't yet. Flashfall is perfection.
I first read this book from March 29th to 30th 2017.
I read this book for the second time from July 16th to 17th 2017. See both reviews on my blog, Carina's Books.
