Book 2 of the Water Worlds series.
I was given an ebook copy of Sami, along with the first and third books in the Water World series, Young Moon and Simma respectively, by the author in exchange for my review.
Sami picks up a century (ish) after the events in Young Moon. Sami herself is a young girl living within the five-tunnels complex, in Tee-Four. After the death of her parents she is looked after and became an indentured servant, for the Judge, the spiritual and physical leader of Tee-Four, but Sami doesn't like living within the Judge's rules and she runs away. The book then follows her as she is caught by the Judge, and her subsequent escape with her old friends Glyn and Sef, along with her trusty dog Scout, and finds the things that have been hidden from her in the world outside.
I really enjoyed Young Moon, and so when I picked up this book I expected it to be similar in its writing style, how wrong I was! The way that Sami is written is mainly in slang, and in some cases in phonetics, which is understandable as a concept of what people would talk like and spell like after the end of the world. However I wasn't really 100 percent sure that I liked that writing style, at times I noticed it a lot, and at others I completely glossed over it, but I'd rather be able to fully understand what the characters are on about. On the other hand, the differences between the writing styles of Sami and Young Moon, really illustrate the talent of H S St Ours, in the way that he is able to change the style of his writing.Read more ›
