I found myself, once again, yelling at characters, gasping at events, and crying a few times. Todd and Viola continue their journeys of self-discovery and growth. And despite the fantastical science fiction setting, the events and attitudes are echoes of our own history.
What can I say? You should read this, but you should start with book one, The Knife of Never Letting Go. And be prepared for an emotional journey, and one hell of a ride.
I recommend this book for fans of classic “what is mankind” science fiction, those who’ve read the first two books in the series, readers who enjoy mature (not racy) YA literature, and folks who enjoy a mix of political intrigue with action and true coming of age journeys.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
