Its strongest atribute was the lack of a three-way-romance.
Other than that it had the typical Dystopian heroinne feeling to hard to be loved, but finding love anyway. Also the fact that she needs to save the world.
Granted, in this book I actually could understand her motivation to do as she did. I think its the only dystopian in which I don't think she just does what she does, for the plot to move forward.
I did have some trouble with the writingstyle, seeing as it seemed the author doesnt know how to use '',''. This made for some weary weard sentences.
"Hello," she said.
Whereas in the book:
"Hello." She said.
With the latter, the dialogue seems very choppy and not fluid. I may be the Grammar Police, but honestly it made the book hard to read. The lack of commas seemed at odd with the novel, which otherwise was decently written.
Great world-building and some very likeable characters make this a very good read.
t's unfortunate that myriads of punctuation errors riddled what was already only a somewhat entertaining (and largely unoriginal) story. Had the editing not been so poor, I might have felt able to give the book another star.
The characters all fit familiar tropes. And important plot points were telegraphed miles ahead. Phoenix was the ultimate Mary Sue. The people she becomes closest to turn out to be important people, just as she does. Everything falls into place, even as everything is falling apart.
The book's biggest pro is the author's voice.
The book tells the story of Phoenix, a young orphan who lost her parents in a tragic night she simply cannot manage to escape her worst nightmares. She lives out of The Walls of The Sanctuary, Utopian place that established to organized what was left of the world following the collapse of nature. The life in the city of Tartarus, where Phoenix struggles to survive amid violent attacks of several tribes that dominate the city, is not easy at all.
She lives in the shadows of the corners of the abandoned buildings and one night she witness a situation that will change her life forever and I tell you that it totally changes the rhythm of the history.
Gradually, Phoenix finds herself facing situations ouside of her control, the control of someone who learned to fight for only six years. And her thirst for justice speaks louder. Even totally broken, she faces her biggest demons in the hope of reverting the way of life that she has lead before now.
Using the classic format of this genre, the writer begins the book slowly, presenting many details of the life of Phoenix, all essential to the understanding of the plot. I am in love with this dystopia and am controlling myself not to divulge all the details, mysteries and secrets. I began a bit disheartened since the book has few dialogs but as the story gained rhythm I could not stop reading and I am already anxious to read the follow ups and get to know how the ending will be. It is no wonder this book is called New World Rising, since in it we can realize the growth of this young person and of the whole tension between the survivors.
I loved the cover, mainly several details included in the drawing that portray several details of the city.
I loved the way the writer gradually included the presence of other characters and here between us. . . I already have an organized cheer some. . . . (no worries, no spoilers).
I would to thank the writer for ceding the volume for the review with the knowledge that I had already bought the volume 1.
Myl(a thousand= mil in portuguese ) and stars for this book. 4/5
