Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I love the synopsis of this book. It has whispers of an adventure echoing through it. I am so excited for this. When I first read the synopsis I thought that this was one book I needed to pick up because it had such a unique premise. I am so excited to jump straight on into this!

Thank you so much to Rockstar Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing and dialogue in this book was really good. I love how well the sentences flowed together and how natural the dialogue was. The book was well-written and definitely enjoyable. The author created a really great image of a post apocalyptic world.

Plot Thoughts:

The plot was kind of a let down. Whilst it was interesting it progressed extremely slowly. I felt like though the book was short, it dragged out way too much in some instances. The interesting parts just weren't enough to keep the momentum of the plot going. There were definitely some parts that I enjoyed and there were some parts that just fell flat for me. 

Character Thoughts:

I ended up not connecting with the characters, I tried so hard to and perhaps that was the problem. I couldn't find anything that drew to the characters. They felt impersonal and sometimes I think they just fell flat.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I did enjoy the book. It might have fell flat for me but I definitely think that a lot of people will enjoy this book. I really liked the writing and definitely think that if the author wrote another book, I would read it. The plot had its highs and its lows. I was also unable to connect with the characters. Thank you so much to Rockstar Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book.

Yours in Reading,
