It took me a while to decide whose story this really is, and I found the frequent changes of viewpoint a bit distracting at first. However, the characters are well differentiated and consistent, and jumping between them kept the suspense going. I was curious to know more about the way of life in these two decimated cities. I get the necessity of foraging in the ruins of The Waste for anything useful, and the rationing of water from the city's only well, but I couldn't help wondering about practical things like food production and the source of President Crane's electricity. I also had difficulty picturing just how many (or how few) citizens there are. Perhaps I missed something, but no matter. I found that pursuing the story was more compelling than dwelling on these details and I was happy to accept the general premise of the demise of technology, the depletion of resources and a society reduced to rationing and scavenging.
If you want something more than just a well-told suspense story, I would highly recommend this novel - it will linger in your mind for a while!
The story kept me glued to my Kindle, and some of the sneaky twists to the plot did have me gasping.
Whilst the concept of superhumans sounds farfetched now, at no point in the story did it seem unbelievable. The author has done a fantastic job of weaving believability into her story, as well as blanketing it with soft character quirks, which makes them the sort of characters you want to cheer for.
I loved the book, and would recommend it to anyone who likes reading dystopian type novels, or even YA books.
Not sure I can forgive the author for the bit right before the end though...you'll know what I mean when you read it!!!
I became invested in each character and had to force myself to put the book down.
It ended all too soon for me! A definite must read for any lover of this genre.
Super-humans can be either born or made from humans and apparently, the two can breed with each other as well.
The novel’s three main characters are Syra, a super-human leader with a troublesome twin brother; Dominico, a super-human young woman who lives with her adoptive human parents; and Rogan, a human man and high level commander of the dictator, (human) President Crane. “The Creator” also plays a part now and then, although never much explained. Syra, Dominico, and Rogan have their own rotating, first person chapters.
The larger story moves towards war between the two opposing groups, who battle for very scarce resources. At the same time, the main characters rebel against the powers that be and their propaganda of portraying the other side as villains.
I found some of the characters’ motivations a bit confusing at times and also thought the ending could have been more definitive. But overall, this was a good solid read that will appeal to fans of dystopian fantasy.
