The author did a fabulous job revealing the descriptions of the planets (and places on earth) where Grey and Orinda lived in small doses. I never felt overloaded with the new scenes around me, and was quite able to picture life in this futurist time. The plot held my interest, suspense came at the correct times, and I totally enjoyed the sprinkles of Biblical themes throughout.
...and did I mention there were "Zorses" ??? Yep, zorses. I was introduced to several original creatures, including the horse and zebra combination.
There were a couple times I thought (and hoped) an extra character may be used for a romantic subplot, but that wasn’t the case. The ending does leave promise for a second book. Perhaps the author may take that route in the future--hint, hint! But even though there was no romance, love isn’t lacking in the story. My favorite part was the connection between the two sisters. I felt the burden of Grey being the eldest, sacrificing many times in order to protect her sister. Yet when the time comes for Orinda to take a step into the unknown, she does so without missing a beat. And whatever they faced, they did it for each other. The display of their family’s bond was refreshing.
The story was engrossing, the characters believable and relatable, and while faith was woven throughout the story, it wasn't preachy or overly saccharine. I have already recommended it to one friend, and will recommend it to others.
Grey Alexander can take on Katniss Everdeen and come out on top, and she makes Bella and Clary look like whiners (well, maybe not Clary, but you get the point).
The story is engaging and fresh, with sprinkles of witty dialogue and tons of action. An added plus: you never have to question about questionable language, violence or sexual content. C.J. writes with power and she chooses her words carefully. She gets her point across with creativity and not with vulgarity or by being preachy. I am anxious for a sequel! "Jupiter Winds is a four and 1/2 star novel. I'm holding that other 1/2 star hostage until I get my sequel!
There is violence in the story, but nothing crazy and there are so many twists along the way that my heart had trouble relaxing but in a good way.
Hopefully Darlington will have a sequel ready soon because I am eager to see what happens next and loved how Winds ended! When the evil general gets it, I thought of the White Witch from Narnia and how Aslan finishes her off. The planet Jupiter felt tangible in this book and it was incredible how the author brings it to life. CAN'T WAIT for Jupiter Fire, gotta have more of this story!!
