The Confederacy of Heaven
on Jan. 09, 2012
Definitely one of the best free ebooks I've read to date! Within a couple of chapters I had decided that if I had paid for the book, it would have been totally worth it. The writing style, main character, and even some elements of the plot remind me a bit of The Hunger Games (which was obviously a hugely popular book), so if you liked that one, definitely give this one a try. The main character is a 17-year-old girl but this book will definitely appeal to a wide audience, young and old. The plot and characters are compelling (I couldn't put it down) and it is, refreshingly, VERY well written. I get really distracted and annoyed by bad grammar/sentence structure or when authors obviously don't really understand all of the words they try to use... but there was NONE of that in this book. I think I noticed two minor typos in the whole thing. That's better than a lot of ebooks (or printed books) you have to pay for!! The only possible reason for this book being free is that the author never tried to sell it... because it would definitely sell. Keep writing, Ms. Taylor, and I'll be first in line to buy your next book!

Very much enjoyed this book, and am about to purchase the next two to see what happens next! Well-written, compelling plot, intriguing combination of futuristic sci-fi and fantasy, and well-developed characters who are easy to relate to (and all unique). Definitely recommended - and hope to see more from the author!
