Faye's sister Justine is chosen to become the new incarnation of Belisama. Wanting to say good-bye to her sister before she is Fixed, Faye ventures to the manor of the Mother Duchess, mother figure of the Unending and ruler over the humans who live in her walled kingdom, Bastion.
However, the plan goes awry when the non-incarnated spirit of a rogue Unending enters Faye. They flee across Bastion in hopes of escaping the Mother Duchess and her army of Unending, receiving help from unlikely allies. The rogue Unending, Aris, reveals the shady underbelly of the founding of Bastion and the sacrifices that the Mother Duchess has been willing to make in order to perpetuate a system that allows the Unending to harvest humans and reincarnate as needed.
This book is a thrilling ride through a world that feels part medieval fantasy and part steampunk sci-fi, with a dash of romantic tension and an open ending that has me hoping for a book 2. A great, quick read, but also thought-provoking content about power systems and the ways we protect them.
Justice Unending is the story of a tomboy named Faye Whitlock who lives in the Bastion, a walled country ruled by bodiless gods known as Unending. When confronted with the reality of her sister's possession--and imminent death--she rushes to say goodbye. She is promptly possessed by Aris, an Unending whose hobbies include murdering politicians and getting her hosts killed. Now that she's host to an outlaw, Faye must flee the Bastion while the Mother Duchess's army hunts her for Aris's crimes.
This book's biggest strengths lie in its pacing and characters. Justice Unending is an action adventure with a colorful cast of characters and a lightning fast pace. Faye and Aris have a great character dynamic and become endearing as they're flung from crisis to crisis. Their adventure leaves little time for worldbuilding, but Spencer wields vivid descriptions and POV assessments to give you everything need to know. That said, I'd love for a sequel to delver deeper into Justice Unending's world one day.
The author creates a rich scifi/fantasy world with a medieval feel to it. Unending are immortal spirits that choose human bodies to inhabit, and in which the human dies in a process called Fixing. This is viewed as an honor, to be chosen, and when Faye’s sister Justine is chosen by an Unending called Belisama, Faye’s heart is broken at the thought of losing her sister. Trying to find a way to see her sister one last time, she witnesses a murder – and trying to flee the Bastion – an Unending embodies her – and urges her to escape. With her best friend Edward’s help, she gets away but struggles with the truth and the Unending inside her. According to Aris, Faye’s Unending, humans don’t have to die to host an Unending, and exposes the side of the Unending that nobody knows of.
The author does a great job with the dialog, and the originality of the story. Even though the symbiotic relationships between two souls have been told in many ways, the author gives this a fresh take on this relationship and how they learn to trust each other. The pacing is spot on, and I look forward to a book two. Reviewed by Cyrene
