Characters of Colour?
Not so much. There’s one secondary character who is kinda brown, but it’s a pretty glaringly white cast.
Given it’s supposed to be at LEAST 150 years since the UV levels spiked, & our snapshot doesn’t include underground habitations, it’s a bit farfetched to assume people would still be mostly white by that point.
None! Sure, relationships are discouraged, but especially to avoid pregnancy I’d have anticipated a LOT more GLITTFAB interactions, if not out & out Queer folx.
This is part of what hit me so hard.
Medical resources are slim. Survival is inherently Ableist in this environment, & it’s built into the trading system. If you cannot get in & around to scavenge, you don’t earn the resources to trade for essential supplies.
Even a temporary disability can see you losing your place, taking you from barely scraping by to dying slowly.
As a Disabled person, these kinds of inherently, viciously Ableist societal structures hurt like hell. When paired with the rapidly closing window before we’re facing irreversible climate collapse - part of which includes more pandemics - it’s enough to really make me worry about a future.
Worth my time?
Oh, absolutely. Despite the fear, & the pain, this is a story fundamentally about hope, humanity, & knowing which lines you will not cross. It took me about 2 hours, all told. A satisfying quick read.
This book is the prequel to a series. As such, it’s got a lot of re-read potential… if the rest of the series lives up to the epic that this book is lining up.
By itself? Wooof. I don’t think I would want to put myself through that again.
To fans of post-apocalyptic, dystopian adventures/romances.
I received this book in exchange for my honest views - thanks, BookSiren!
This is the story of Skye, a single mother, trying to make a life for herself and her son outside the towers. When a young girl named Kayla is discovered in a collapsed ruin, Skye must make some very difficult decisions…to give up the girl to her own fate or move on from the life she has worked so hard to build for her and her son. Tensions were already high in the camp where they live so adding another mouth to feed without the ability to work for the group is never going to be accepted. But no child would ever survive on their own.
This the events that lead up to Kayla’s story and reminded just why I enjoyed reading Jamie A. Waters’ storytelling so much. I somehow missed the release of the past few books and now will be adding them to my soon to be reading shelf.
I received this copy of Ruins of Fate from Jamie A. Waters. This is my honest and voluntary review.
It starts with the tension of a quick mission against the backdrop of a raging storm, and continues to keep readers at the edge of their seat with camp politics, (not so) whispered romances and a mother's fierce nature to protect her own. While I'm not usually one for the bleakness that tends reign in dystopian novels, there was enough intrigue and banter here to shift the focus away from anything too terribly depressing (because, let's face it, 2020 doesn't need books for that). While, as a mother myself, I found it tense to have the children so involved in the conflict that Skye dealt with, it was also a refreshing change to see a main character have to deal with such a realistic burden as the survival of her own kids within their harsh world.
As this is pegged as a prequel novella, I don't know if the focus shifts to other characters in the first book, but as a taste for the story, it certainly makes for an interesting start. We were given just enough background the "towers" that intimidate the landscape to make a reader want to know more, and it'll be interesting to see where it all leads from here.
I received a free copy of this book from BookSirens in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The Omni Towers series is an established series with RUINS OF FATE giving everyone a glimpse of the character's pasts. I went into ROF with a blank slate having never read the series and I had no trouble getting into the storyline. I enjoyed meeting Skye, Kayla, Leo and Veridian and witnessing the start of their story together.
I enjoyed both the world and learning about the events that made the world what it was. After RUINS OF FATE was over I wanted to know what would happen next for the characters, so I immediately grabbed a copy of BENEATH THE FALLEN CITY. I wasn't disappointing.
