Wooo another week, another review! So, I was pretty excited for this book, cause wow that description and that cover. And I’ve been meaning to read the Children of Time books for quite a while now so I jumped at a chance to read and review this one. Sadly it didn’t quite meet that love mark for me—I’m kind of so-so on this book. Overall, I thought it was a book that was well written, was a great length, and the world-building was interesting, and definitely made sense and felt timely. There were certain aspects that I absolutely loved, unfortunately, my interest flagged a little about 60% of the way through. I think the main characters were pretty well done. I didn’t necessarily connect well with them, but I did think it was pretty clear what their motivations were and why they acted the way they did. I did enjoy the growth they did and thought the ending was pretty satisfying if a little unexpected. Yeah, I don’t really have much to say on this one, because I think it’s a strong book that will certainly appeal to some people, but just didn’t quite strike the right chord with me. So, there it is, I do think this a great book that will appeal to sci-fi fans who love a good post-apocalyptic book.
