The plot was multidimensional and had some vivid characters that joined in the story throughout Hyde’s journey. One other character I found engaging was Marcus. I enjoyed seeing how the relationship between Hyde and Marcus played out over the course of the story and how this led to more self-development for both of them. Such contrasts and similarities between these two. This added such a depth to an already intriguing storyline.
I also found the scene setting impeccably done and described well. “Typical of Britain, the weather took a turn for the worse.” You could feel the misery in not just the surroundings, but the feelings that you would get being in cold, putrid damp circumstances. There is gore in this book, but it is all justified and works for the story. Grotesque descriptions worked really well and at one point I could feel how nauseated Hyde must have felt. I really appreciate a read that makes me feel things on a multi-sensory level and this sure hit all the marks for me.
The end was unexpected and brilliant. I do not want to spoil it for anyone so I won’t say what happens, but it definitely has me hooked as a fan of L.N. Denison. I can’t wait for more!
I haven't read many books in this genre, but I found Only the Few difficult to put down. Admittedly, we know very little about Hyde's past, her character outside the military, but we are given snippets and these only serve to deepen the intrigue surrounding her. I, for one, appreciated that while Hyde is tough as nails, she is still sometimes weakened by insecurities. At one point, late in the book, as Hyde contemplates a possible romantic attachment, she inspects her naked, bruised and battered body wondering "Would (he) ever find me attractive if he saw the real me?" I found her insecurities refreshing and relatable, much more so than if Hyde were simply an unflappable, tough-as-nails heroine utterly certain of herself and her abilities.
I'll admit, while horrifying in their actions and origins, the cavers completely captured my attention. I would've enjoyed more if them in this story, truth be told. The aforementioned twist at the end practically guarantees another installment and I will be eagerly awaiting the next chapter on Corporal Hyde's journey.
This entire adventure is a gritty action-packed thrill ride and Hyde seems to rise to whatever challenge confronts her. I haven’t read many dystopian novels but I have read speculative fiction in all its many forms and this new world is well developed. I feel like I wanted a little bit more of the sights, sounds, and even smells of the devastation Hyde now lives in but for the most part, Denison creates a vivid backdrop. The intrigue built throughout the story and I truly had no idea where it was all leading to. The ending was ingenious and I look forward to finding out even more about Hyde’s background and certainly her future. Highly Recommended.
