The Sentinel District is where the rich people live, they have running water, food, real homes, governed and policed by The Hunter Division.
The Fringe district is where everyone else lives, people that aren't welcome in the sentinel, killers, rapists, criminals, they face a daily battle to survive and face a bleak future.
The 2nd reclamation district is once wiped free of monsters going to be an add on to the overflowing sentinel district.
One problem, the 2nd reclamation district is overrun by Chimera, they are the monsters of this story and they outnumber the humans 21:1. The Chimera were humans once, born in the aftermath of a nuclear war, but after centuries of genetic mutations their humanity has been lost and they are now hunted and killed and are the main food source for the humans.
Enter Silver, a member of the Hunter Division and all round hardass. She is on assignment one day and comes across a human living amongst the chimera, and they haven't touched her, which Silver finds strange because the Chimera are vicious meat eaters and eat humans.
Silver decides that she is going to smuggle this human into the fringe district with the help of a few members of her team, Red, and Alex. Unfortunately she gets caught and thrown into a cell and then banished to the fringe division and this is where the story really begins.
This book is amazing considering that the author is new.Read more ›
I found the character development to be pretty good; a little choppy, but nothing to detract from reading the book, just not refined. The world-building is also pretty good, in that it creates a distinction between the two areas of habitation. More details about the "civilized" zone would have drawn a better contrast between it and the more heavily described "Fringe" zone. I found the dialogue to flow very well, helping to build upon the character development. The back-and-forth can be both serious and humorous-that shows promise for the author.
Overall, I enjoyed reading the book. The author clearly knows how to write a book, and has good writing skills. This is a very good introduction piece; and, I feel confident that every title subsequent to this one will each be a little better-confident enough that I will be reading the the second installment.
When Ella 'Silver' Cross is banished to the Fringe District after saving a naked, seemingly deranged woman from the Chimera, she finds herself expelled from the life she has always known and living alongside the dregs of society. The Fringe District is a place where evil freely flourishes, and Silver: Acheron pulls no punches in describing just how low humanity can stoop when pushed to the knife-edge of survival. Slavery, degradation of women, drug abuse - the Fringe District is a disturbing place, but the descriptions and writing makes you really feel as if you are there.
The series is started perfectly in that although secrets are alluded to, there is so much 'taster' for the rest of the story that it's impossible to not crave more. The writing is edge-of-your-seat thrilling - as Silver finds and begins to befriend the woman she seemingly rescued from the Chimera, Ms. Telford drops tantalising tasters of the revelations that are to come.
I also have to mention the artwork in the book - it's truly chilling and all through the story I had the Chimera pictured in my mind - which made the book come to life even more.
I can't wait to read more of this world, and find out just what those secrets are....
