The writing is skillful and well crafted. (That kind of thing matters to me when reading. I can't get lost in the world the writer creates when I am stumbling through the prose. This was not the case here. Entirely well written. Consistent voice, good pace and flow, believable emotion and reactions - well crafted writing). I've never read a book by this author before and so I didn't know what to expect. I loved reading this.
The characters were also exactly right. Flawed and human, the author brings us fully into their world and thoughts. You want them to win, in one way or another. I cared about the characters in this book. And the plot itself was intricate enough to provide some surprises and suspense but not overly complicated in the way that leaves plot holes or slows the action and development. There were themes of redemption and forgiveness woven throughout that were beautifully presented as well.
I don't want to give much away here, only that if you read the synopsis provided and thought it sounded good, then you should enjoy this book. It delivers what it promises: an exciting, thought provoking read with a side of romantic tension. This is a book worth reading. Loved every page.
Now, for a plot blurb I recommend reading the back cover or another review that goes into more detail. I'll just tell you why I liked this book so much.
I really loved the character, Isolda. She was lifelike. She was competent but not arrogant, feminine but not over the top which made her way easier to connect with than most female characters. She has the ability to see where she is weak and that is ultimately part of her strength. This character subtly draws you in.
Then there is Crusader, who for a nearly emotionless character, is easy to like. I think as a reader, you start to worry for him since he wont worry about himself. As his story unfolds, so does his personality.
I also like that the story was very personal to the characters and had more to do with their lives than what they were trying to accomplish.
If there is a sequel, I would really like to see more of Isolda's story brought to life.
All and all, its totally worth reading.
This is not a solicited review.I paid good money for this book and I wasn't disappointed. I first read it on my husband's amazon account and just purchased the hard copy through mine.
I bought this book because I love the genre (Christian speculative fiction) and because of the cover art. The story was well written and engrossing. I am looking forward to reading other books by this author.
I have no connection with Mr. Otte nor did I receive a free copy of his book. My reason for writing this review is to let other readers know how much I enjoyed Numb.
John Otte did great job creating the storyworld. The characters are well crafted and the plot is tight and fast. No dull monologues or slogging through lengthy detail or description. Just pure sci-fi action from beginning to end with a strong Christian message woven throughout.
I only hope there will be a sequel. There is plenty of room for more books here.
