I’m a fan of Amy Plum’s Revenants series, so I had high hopes for this book.
The beginning intrigued me, and I enjoyed the mix of the sci-fi apocalyptic world with magic and romance. I liked that Juneau was headstrong, and did everything she could to search for her clan, even though she felt betrayed.
As the story went on, the pace didn’t pick up as much as I had hoped it would, but it was interesting enough to keep on listening to see what happens. I was disappointed by the ending. The cliff hanger isn’t what bothered me though. I just felt like not enough had been resolved. I’m on the fence about picking up the second book.
Overall, I’d give the book 3.5 stars. I would consider it slightly better than average, and probably would have rated it a 4 right up until the end. I thought it was pretty unique, so if you’re looking for a mashup of different YA genres and something a little out of the ordinary, this one might be for you.
