Woot, this book was amazing. I was expecting something very dystopian but am very pleased with the mix of science fiction and “paranormal-ish” elements. Also with the steampunk elements thrown in.
This story started out very reminiscent of The Giver but then pretty quick morphs into something entirely different.
I really enjoyed the Author’s writing. It was very clever in the way it tied things together and seemed very cohesive. The characters were written very well too. All the characters were very unique and displayed their own consisent personality. Even the “mindless drones” of the community were written well.
I really liked Jen. She was very strong and really seemed to try to do the right thing all the time, even when others wanted the easy way out. I like Inese too. Lance was OK, I’m interested in seeing what will develop there. Their isn’t really any love relationships in this book (not with Jen Anyway) so I’m look forward to watching that develop in later books.
