This is a novel that’s hard to put down, as you come to care for the characters involved. We don’t have heroes here that you come to love and hope for – this is a bitterly stark novel of what it could actually be like, and none of the characters are entirely positive or wholesome. I found the social commentary to be fairly accurate, and the characters intriguing. From start to finish this isn’t what you really expect, and the ending is quite a surprise, but it’s also steady and reliable – realistic.
Overall this is an excellent novel and I can’t wait to see what Kress comes out with next. I know at least I won’t wait months to read it next time!
