I won this book from Library Thing a few months ago. I read it almost immediately and really enjoyed it. At the beginning I was a little confused, but nevertheless wasn’t able to put it down (take my eyes of the screen as it is) and eventually I was really into it. Definitely recommending it.

Review by: Carol on April 22, 2011 :
A fantasy type book on a post-apocalyptic earth. The plot, characters, and action don't start to gel until the last quarter of the book. First half is dull.

Review by: Victoria on Jan. 10, 2011 :
I won this book from Library Thing a while ago and it's taken me a while to get through this book. I should first say this was a great idea, but filled with a lot of missed opportunities. In the new world of the colony of Uveris a war wages between the Immortal ruled colonies and the failed human experiments outside the colonies called the Others. This story takes place after a cataclysmic event that was stirred by human's environmental impact that made genetically engineering the easiest way to adapt, which lead to a dark age of sorts with a more basic way of life. It was really hard to get into this book; a lot of it had to do with the theme of boredom as being better then change or war, but there is a difference between feeling the characters boredom and the reader being bored, and I was definitely bored. I found a lot of weak sentences full of repeated words and editing problems that made reading this book really distracting. Over all the characters were pretty frustrating and unlikeable, they all seemed to be there to make the main character's life miserable (even herself), with no resolution except to change their personalities. The plot needs to be tightened and the inconsistencies worked out, before this can become a good book.
