The first thing that drew me to this book was that cover. I seriously LOVE it. Then I picked it up and it did not disappoint. The pacing, the characters, the story as a whole is just brilliant. I cried a few times, and, guys, I DON’T CRY IN BOOKS. Well, sometimes I do, but it’s very VERY rare.
The story begins by introducing the reader to the story world by showing you the living conditions, the expectations of the Workers, and their fear of the Watchers. But we’re not stuck in the “norm” for long before Hannah wakes up in the middle of a revolution. Watchers are disguised as Workers and rescuing the people from slavery. This is where we’re introduced to more characters. Some with heart wrenching pasts, others that are completely swoonworthy.
The pacing keeps you turning the pages, wondering what’s going to happen and if the characters are going to make it out alright. Seriously, with one twist after another, SLAVE keeps you hooked until the last page. And the ending!!! Guys, I can usually guess what’s going to happen, but there were still some twists that slid by me.
But the best thing about this book is the emotion it evoked in every scene. I could feel Hannah’s longing when she thought of her parents in the very first chapter before I even knew her. I could feel her fear of the Watchers. I could sense her physical pain when she was tortured. I could feel every emotion she experienced, and few books can do that well.
All in all, this is an excellent debut from Laura Frances. If you like dystopian fiction (and even if you don’t) pick up this book! It’s original. It’s clean. It’s GOOD.
Fear can rule, but not forever.
Editing had minimal errors, nothing that detracts from the story.
Hannah is a worker in a post-apocalyptic world where there is no sun, no moon and only gray. In terms of hierarchy, workers are one step above the outcasts, but far below the Watchers.
Watchers police from every corner, wall and angle. Militant and armed, Watchers will enforce with brutal results - ones that Hannah and everybody else is only too aware.
When revolution happens, Hannah is unprepared. So too are the workers who have been conditioned to be invisible and accept their fate. They were banned from looking at their own reflection.
Freedom is in their grasp or at least the possibility of it, but it's dependent on overcoming trauma and working with people who they feared the most.
This was an interesting read. I finished it in one sitting. Frances has a way of moving the pace along and keep you turning pages.
With a cast of intriguing characters, history and mystery that unfolds adding depth to the story, Slave is a solid start to what should be an exciting series.
There are a couple of things I'd like to raise for consideration. Frances does an excellent job of exploring trauma and how people who have been traumatized act and/or behave. This is not one of those stories where the lead character suddenly overcomes their past and turns into the leader of the revolution.
Rather, Hannah exhibits behavior that, at times, can be frustrating. Given her background, however, I thought this was more realistic to someone who has been conditioned to be a worker-slave.
Personally, I believe Frances' lost some opportunities in the action department. Tension mounted and then deflated.
In saying that, I think the up close and personal scenes of confinement and terror were very good.
