The cast of characters in this novel is really holding me captive. Jacob actually broke my heart. Hearing his story tore at me, and seeing him with Whistler is heart-warming. I’m really starting to feel an emotional connection with some of the characters in this novel, and others, I just want to see get what they deserve. This contrast in character types makes you feel like you’re really there with the characters, like you’re invested in their lives. Some of the secondary characters absolutely floored me. They are larger than life and absolutely priceless! I can’t say more without giving too much away, but you’ll know them when you meet them. The dialogue also has a good flow, & the unique dialects really bring the characters to life and help them stand out from one another.
My final thoughts? Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! I need the next novel now! I need to know what happens next. I am so fully invested in this story that these characters have become part of my life. This novel is dystopia with a kick. Wilson’s originality and talent as a bard really shine through. The suspense and battling against the odds made it impossible to put this one down.
