The first few lines of Ethos: Morning Star absorbed me, and I couldn’t help but appreciate the exciting, and fantastic adventure that I was quickly caught in. The only blot on the story for me was the conspicuous presence of some obvious redundancies and editing mistakes, which nearly deterred me from continuing the book early on. Once the plot truly got rolling, Ms.Finkbeiner found her groove and more players entered scene. I am so very happy that I kept reading, because I genuinely ended up enjoying the universe and people that she so cleverly constructed!
The beginning of the story we find ourselves on Earth as a member every-day-life USA. With school, cars, classes, parents and all of life’s normal issues. As the reader we expect it to go on like that and have done. Only in this case we readers would be incorrect. Much in the way of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland we are transported to the fantastical world of Ethos. Interestingly we learn that parts of those very stories are truth, and some of them untruths. There’s a few tidbits like the classic stories I previously mentioned and as Brianna learns about this strange new world that exists, we get to see all of the fun ways the Author ties in and reveals how our known sciences compare to Ethos’ own “Magic”. I was gratified to read a novel that visibly had a lot of thought put into the nuances.
Another thing I appreciated was that none of Finkbeiner’s characters came across cookie cutter or atypical. Each new addition to the cast had their very own voice. Even the insects and animals had their own mannerisms and behavior that made them endearing and unique. I loved both the main characters’ personality and temperament! The female lead, Brianna, is easily someone a person could imagine knowing. Her youthful naïveté, honest affection, and in some cases amusingly (in the first few chapters especially) one track 21yr old mind, seemed relatable. As the story progressed we get to witness Bree grow up, just a little bit at a time, with the unexpected weight of her responsibilities as well as see a forbidden love blossom despite the rules. The male lead, Kalen, was well depicted and likable. Being very much the champion he was meant to be: confident, charming, gentle and sensitive; but not in an annoying whingey-way. I liked the discourse between the antagonists. Their conversations didn’t come across as forced and everything flowed nicely along with the plot.
I ended up losing track of time and read this novel late into the night just to see what happened next. And now that I have completed it, I must attempt to wait patiently for the next volume to be released. I eagerly anticipate the return of our brave heroes!
Over all, this book was a fun read, and I would very much laud it to fans of this genre. There wasn’t much in way of violence described, and only some brief displays of innocent, PG, passion. This publication is very much worth the undervalued price tag.I mean come on, there’s also a David Bowie mullet reference that had this reviewer chuckling aloud. Priceless!
