By KaSonndra Leigh
I read this novel as a chapter a day read, and let me tell you, it was really difficult to hold back and not race on through! The last five chapters I did read in one setting-I simply could not wait longer.
This is a very complex, incredibly well-thought-out, urban fantasy/paranormal/supernatural/alchemical/scientific/dystopian story, which I am happy is to be the first in a series-because there are a lot of secrets, multiple characters, and backstory of which I wish to read more! There is so much content in this book, a fully-imagined and fully-articulated world-building, much to be admired and enjoyed. Set in a future area which we today would consider eastern North Carolina, society following "the Tidal Wars" is very restricted, according to genetics rather than by wealth or merit. Life is as rigid as during the Middle Ages, and those "without" (commoners) are restricted to living outside the walled enclaves. Those within the walls are subject to the governmental entity of the enclave, and the border guards and "dark soldiers." It is much worse than the Orwellian creations of "1984." Even in such a society, though, rebellion exists, and here it takes the form of descendants of angels-both the good and the fallen.
I won't say more because I don't want to reveal any of this totally complex and astounding novel-I'll just say-if you're read it, well, read it again. If you've missed out so far-what are you waiting for? "When Copper Suns Fall" rocks!!
This review was based on the ebook version.
backed droolie dog looking things, magic, love, and hot guys. Got your attention yet? Good because there is a whole lot more where
that came from.
Years ago people were like you and i. They drove out to the beach with their kids, laid out in the sun and admired its rays. While the kids are
playing in the cool ocean water a huge black shadow covers the sky and all of a sudden there was a massive Tidal Wave that devoured
everything around it.The tidal wave caused lots of things to change. There were even radioactive particles in the air that eventually got into
the survivors of the devastation and in time ended up in the bodies of their descendants, years later, causing a reaction within them.
We are now in the year 2067 and things are way different than what they used to be. No longer is there an America. Now there is a Tribunal that makes
the laws that each citizen must abide by or face dyer consequences. There is also this weird Ale-meds stuff that they make all kids 16 and under
take morning and night. Its said that if you stop taking it you will grow sick and die of a virus that was caused by the Great Tidal years.
Cheyla is 15. She lives in the old Cornice house with her dad, step mom and her horrible step-sister. Cheyla also has a twin brother Micah who's been
in a coma for over a year. He fell from atop a huge coaster ride and Cheyla blames herself because she wasn't able to stop him. She still doesn't know
why he fell or if that was what even happened.
Life in Castle Hayne is anything but typical. Children here have strange abilities. Some are trackers and some healers. These abilities were all caused by the
Tidal years. Something in the air changed the chromosomes in past descendants who in turn passed it on to the children of the now future.
Cheyla's friend Jalen is a tracker and Lexa is a healer. They are inseparable but Cheyla is hiding something from them. She's not like them. Her blood is
different. She's a seraphim. Half human half angel blood. Cheyla's mother passed that on to her though she never knew her. She died when the twins
were very little. All she knows is what her father has told her and that's not much.
As Cheyla gets closer to her 16th birthday she starts to have her black outs again. She's had them before but not for a long time until recently.
Strange memories show up, of a time and place totally different from where she is now . The water she shes in her memories are clear, the birds are flying
in the sky and there is this boy that she can't quite see. All these memories are adding up to something but what?
Cheyla struggles to deal with her changes and finding the cause for her brothers year long coma. What was the real cause of the Tidal Years? The
Tribunal believes it was a war between Tainted angels and Caducean's.
Find out in this great story of The Lost Immortals. Wow! KaSonndra Leigh brought to life a horrific new world i personally hope to only see in my imagination.
This is a great book and you don't want to miss what happens next.
I feel obligated to preface this review by admitting that dystopian novels aren't among those with which I'm overly familiar. Thus, my point of comparison is likely less broad than for other reviewers. That said, one should take away from this that the book really appealed to me, even though it falls outside of my "norm." To me, this is the sign of a great book.
Author Leigh's world-building is very well done. She easily made me envision this not-so-distant future without a lot of intrusive explanations. I quickly joined with her main character, Chela, and enjoyed witnessing her growth and awakening throughout the book. Chela's quest to discover what is happening to her twin brother, Micah, serves as the driving force throughout the book and really unifies the plot.
There is a love triangle involved, which had me wary. This particular plot device has been overused in YA fiction for quite some time. Fortunately, Ms. Leigh didn't dwell on this element, so it didn't distract from the story. Instead, it helped Chela understand more clearly the feelings she has for Faris, her mysterious love interest and protector.
With hints of The Hunger Games and Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush saga infused in the tone of the book, Ms. Leigh has a real winner here. She sets it up for a sequel and I'm eager to check it out!
