Brillant - Their best book so far - A Near Future Dystopian Earth
September 19, 2019
Loved it! It's a very different than their past humorous fantasy genre books - this book is straight Sci-Fi with just a small touch of levity. The book takes place in a very relatable not so distant dystopian future. The characters are multi-faceted and even most of the "bad guys" turn out to have depth to them. I found this book a real page turner and became very invested in the main character and her friends. The plot took some unexpected turns which kept the story interesting. The book had little details that really made the places, people, and society really pop off the page. (Wish I could comment more on my favorite delightful details but don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read the book yet.)
What really hit me most about the story though is given the progress of science, how not so far in the future the possibility of this dystopian premise could really be. The story was entertaining but the future it warns of certainly gave me pause for thought. I would highly recommend this book to fans of Heide & Iain's past books as well as to fans of near future dystopian earth science fiction.
