The people of the north are worshipers of a war god. The ruling priest sends his followers to the south to bring back a woman who will bear the Gift. Alaric the Chosen kidnaps and rapes Kiya. Her husband Raphel tries to get her back, but gets captured himself. He, too, is included in the prophecy--as the blood for the sacrifice. Will their friend, the old man Abe, be able to save them from the Northerners' fate? Will God--any of their gods--intervene?
The story is engaging and makes you rethink what you know about the second coming. A nice twist on the as-yet-to-happen event, and a twist at the end that's sure to please.
What I loved most about the books is the proverbs and sayings at the beginning of each chapter. Some are quite hilarious; others thought-provoking.
I found the non-fiction Afterword by Philip Stephen Knight BSc an incredibly interesting and easy to follow highlight of the book, but then, I have more of an interest in the environment, geology, climate and world history that I have in dystopian fiction. I’m happy to recommend this novel as a stimulating read.
I was hesitant to read Where Hope Dares because I’m not that into dystopian literature, but I put my faith in Brynn, and I was rewarded with a story that I could not put down. For me, it was a good thing that my computer was in the shop getting an evaluation that led to buying a new hard drive. While my computer was unavailable for my own writing, I had plenty of time to read Where Hope Dares, and it did not disappoint. I’m glad I didn’t have to put it aside to get to my own writing objectives.
Brynn’s research for writing a story which takes place some thousands of years in the future, in a world that has suffered from the outcomes of global warming that we, in the twentieth century, refused to address, was superb. The science is woven into the story, though somewhat mysteriously, but it is also presented by way of some post-story notes. The social and political results of our failure are presented in a compelling fashion with the actions and interactions of the characters she has created.
I am astonished by Brynn’s ability to keep the story moving from page to page and chapter to chapter. I was surprised at several points along the way as I read; I kept expecting to turn the page into the climax only to discover that I was only one-third of the way through the story, or that I was only half-way through it.
Even if you don’t believe that global warming is a problem that we must address before our planet suffers unbelievable consequences, you will find this journey into our possible future a compelling story that you cannot put down.
I cannot wait for Brynn’s next story, whatever it is about.
