Enormous because of The Write Reads and Neem Tree Press for having me on the Feast of Ashes weblog tour and for sending me a duplicate of the novel to learn and overview.
This can be a actually distinctive tackle the dystopian style in YA, one the place it may be tough to carve out an area within the already very busy style! Williamson does this brilliantly, her novel of an Earth which has been decimated, the place individuals dwell in eco-bubbles, the surface air being poisonous is a wonderful setting. Williamson brings her regular highly effective themes and impactful characters to this setting, and what we’ve is a wonderful dystopian YA.
I preferred the highly effective themes that Williamson introduced into this novel, I liked the novel being set in Africa. Dystopian novels can typically set themselves within the USA and overlook about the remainder of the world, and I liked that the writer had chosen to set her novel there.
The novel strikes alongside at breakneck velocity, it by no means lets up. There are loads twists and turns to maintain readers entertained, and I sped by way of it!
Total I actually preferred this novel, its a superb addition to the YA dystopian style, and nicely price selecting up!
