The Moon Dwellers was utterly amazing, easily among the best dystopian novels I've ever read. Each moment is masterfully crafted, appealing to different senses and emotions; and as a whole, the novel draws the reader into a world which cannot be escaped.
I was generously provided a free copy of the book through Read 4 Review, and initially took notes on a separate document to post upon completion, however this meticulous habit was discarded within a few minutes as I was thrown into an adventure simultaneously action-oriented and emotionally moving. (Too fast-paced for the mundane practice of -god-forbid- note-taking!)
The opening was gripping, the imagery amazing, but most of all, the characters were truly likeable. I found myself loving Adele from the first chapter. Her imagination, strength and determination quickly engaged me; key traits which only continued to grow as she matured throughout the novel. Tawni's resourcefulness as well as Cole's magnetic personality provided a great character dynamic. Similarly Tristan's perseverance and Roc's likeable demeanour helped engender further appreciation for the book.
And a note to the author, I give great credit to the sarcastic comments! I do love a healthy dose of sarcasm and it is executed with skill in The Moon Dwellers! For me, at the very least, it's rare to find such sarcasm which brings a smile to my face.
I thoroughly look forward to reading the next book. Let it be as great as its predecessor.
