Rozene is an interesting character. She was giving me a bit of whip-lash. One moment she's strong and standing up for herself against a couple of bully kids, the next she's running home crying 'coz someone said something mean to her, a grown adult! Whaaat? It just seemed weird to me how at times she exhibited backbone, and other times her spine was limper than a soft noodle. I guess it's 'coz she's pretty naïve from living underground in the bomb shelter all those years, but still...it was annoying. Really, that complaint was pretty minor and didn't affect my enjoyment of the story. My only other complaint would be I want the sequel now! Please?
Plot summary: Rozene ends up inheriting her grandfather's farm after bombs have devastated America. She moves into the country from living in the city near the underground bomb shelter she took sanctuary in. Unbeknownst to Rozene other forces, both mundane and paranormal, are at work. Adventures ensue. Some hilarious and some terrifying, but all interesting.
I very much enjoyed the characters and how they interacted. There were a couple of subplots or stories I would love to hear it some point, such as the story behind Duke's reaction when asked if the owner got his hat back. I look forward to the continuation of the story in the future with eager anticipation.
I do not read a whole lot of apocalyptic- life as we know it is over- type books, and I can't really say that is where this one fits into (kindly like three or four big steps back), but the storyline worked in a way that made allowances for advancement: electricity is still available- just not as widely available, phone lines and rotary phones are just starting to become usable again, realistic technology for what would be the knowledge base it the time.
One thing that did bug me was when Rozene was asked about her name, "That's Native American for Rose. Isn't it?" I just didn't enjoy the lumping of all Native American languages together such as for a shared meaning or terminology. (But I have not studied Native American cultures or languages- so I do not know if my nitpicking about this point is warranted or valid)
This plot weaves and flows, dragging the reader from the far past, before the European's came to the American Coast, to a dystopian future that teases both loss and hope. Now, at the edges of the Republic of Texas, the past and the future collide, threatening misconceptions and revealing truths few are prepared to face.
While I enjoyed the premise of this book, and how the entire narrative was penned with a slight 'old western' feel... I was left feeling disconnected. Things progress a bit too fast, with Sam, with Hunting Wolf, with Colby... it's all just too fast with little explanation for feelings or WHY she feels the way she does. It jumps around, staggering through plot points while dropping breadcrumbs that SHOULD be interesting, but fall flat.
I can see how this books would gain fans, as it explores facets of this sub-genre that are generally ignored, along with the diverse mix of the potential Harem, but it is not one that I, personally, will be following. Still worth giving a chance though, you never know - this might be your next favorite read.
Rozene is our plucky heroine who has no idea that she has inherited a house and land where her family has been for centuries. Her family anchors 6 Wendigoag to living a non-evil existence. This is a story of her finding love, learning her families history, and what she has to do to survive in this post-apocalyptic world.
It's open to sequels as there are a couple of plot points that are not resolved. I'll read them.
And holybells, what I imagined from the blurb, the read was more massive and more complicated. First of all, I would like to fangirl about the author's writing style, her world building and her characters.
The most prominent element was the angst. Set on a post apocalyptic dystopian ish scenario, it's no surprise how chaotic it would be. And I love a good mess and mindfudge lol. It had been really engaging, wanting to turn the page quickly.
The characters surely reflects the beaten down but still surviving environment in general. Which of course is a great tell how amazing and raw and strong they are. I don't really care if they are all portrayed as monsters, I freaking love those stuffs.
PS between sam and colby, i am team colby for sure.
PPS please let the brothers get what they deserve-love and acceptance
