What would it be like if humans were the ones in cages? What would you do to get free?
Harl Eriksson was born into such a world. When he was young his parents were lifted by his people's God. A God he no longer believes in, which is a dangerous attitude to have. This gets him in trouble with his town's elders and he ends up in a labor camp. What follows is the best story I have read in a very long time!
There are plenty of adventures, mysterious and terrifying enemies and a lovely, strong maiden! What more could you need? Get this book now, you won't regret it!
They have their own little primitive world inside the box, but it is limited, and the gene pool is faltering. Everyone looks related to everyone else.
But every once in a while someone commits a perceived crime and is "taken up" . The God reaches in through a big trapdoor and scoops up the offender, and they are never seen again. More people are taken up Then are being born!
Then there is the "Gifting", which is basically the "god" giving them some stuff not normally available inside their prison. What is The God doing with the items for the gifting?
Jarl🐺, the blacksmith, has seen the "Gods" when they don't realize they are being observed. On his farm, there is an area in the terrarium that is transparent where he can see upwards and outside of the little world he and everyone else is trapped in.
Jarl🐺 doesn't believe the giants are Gods. Because of this, He is sentenced to the quarry at hard labor. He is a non believer in a community of superstitious people who are too 😨scared to speak their minds. No one questions the God!
ARC Received from HG for a Voluntary and Honest Review. I also got the book📑 with KU.
This book📑 is extremely interesting but lengthy, in order for The author to develop the epic story. The book📑 also ends in sort of a cliffhanger but it is still a happy ending! Additional books have been written!
It kinda gives you an idea of what it's like to be in a terrarium or an aquarium, where there are limits to the size of your world.
The story flowed smoothly, if not a bit too long. it took me the equivalent of a full day to get through it, but it was time well spent.
I really like the way the characters developed over the course of the story. It was quite believable. Nobody suddenly had supernatural powers or could shape-shift into some kind of creature. That, in my mind, solidified the characters and make them relatable.
Bottom line, if you're looking for something different from the normal sci-fi, get Humanarium. You won't be disappointed.
I thought the exposition of the story was just tad long, but once I settled into the rhythm of the story, it worked well. The writing was well done; no huge distracting spelling or grammar errors.
Harl is the hero/protagonist of the story. He has important personal growth through the story and he is not an "omnipotent" hero. He makes mistakes but learns from them. It's a very well done journey for the hero to learn his personal world is extremely small and there are much more huge things in the Universe. The one thing about Harl at which I had to smile, is that he seemed to be a 'fast healer'. It worked in the story though.
I would have like to seen a little more development of Sonora, the love interest. To me, she seemed a little one dimensional but she was still a nice foil to the hero.
Rufus, the antagonist (and really nasty guy!) really carried his part. I wanted to choke him!! That's a mark of some good writing folks. And the author gave some good history for the bad guy to give the reader an idea of why he was such a jerk.
All the other characters were interesting, seemed necessary to the story and worked well within the framework. I became invested in all of them!
I thought the world building was phenomenal! It took me just a little bit to understand and visualize what I thought the author might be setting up but it was so fun to figure it out! Just fantastic. The author thought through each scenario and made the events make sense as they related to each other.
Even though the book ends in a bit of a cliff-hanger, it is still a good ending. It just makes you look forward to reading the next one! Can't wait to see what happens to Harl and the gang!
