What a vivid world! Litherland has created an unforgettable world for readers to loose themselves in. He does a great deal of world and history building here. Throughout the series, he continues to build the world in which his characters live. With each chapter it becomes more and more vivid. I really enjoy being immersed in the world that he’s created. It’s so vivid & believable, yet at the same time completely dystopian. His descriptions bring everything to life in a vivid manner while his writing style gives readers a feel for the people of the world. I appreciate how he also leaves room for further growth in later novels of the series. Litherland reveals this story slowly, allowing readers to feel like they’re really part of the tale. He drops readers into the story, giving them little knowledge of the outside world, and putting them in the same boat as the characters. Intrigue and suspense wind their way throughout the tale, keeping readers on their toes. I found a few of the characters really easy to connect with. I loved following them through this tale. As a whole, the characters in this novel are intriguing, although not necessarily always likeable. The contrast is compelling. I appreciate how each character has a defined place within the novel, allowing readers to completely understand every aspect of it. I enjoyed the interpersonal relationships between the major characters in the story. They were as important to my enjoyment of the tale as the action of the story. The contrasting personality types gives the tale the feel of an entire community, with the extremes to be expected of a community long isolated. The characters aren’t overly developed at the beginning, allowing readers to get to know them as they grow. The continuous character development really allowed me to feel as if I knew the characters better at the end of the novel than I did at the beginning. Readers come to know the characters and their backstory. Litherland’s stories build on one another, culminating in a fascinating conclusion in the 3rd novel. It was an interesting read that I would definitely recommend to others. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
