This review is from: Exodus (Paperback)
Mara's island home is drowning as the ice caps melt and Earth loses its land to the ocean. But one night, in the ruined virtual world of the Weave, Mara meets the mysterious Fox - a fiery eyed boy who tells her of the sky cities that rise from the sea. Mara sets sail on a daring journey to find a new life for herself and her friends - instead she discovers a love that threatens to tear her apart...
I do like this book, it is very thought provoking and quite terrifying if this is what the future is going to be like due to Global Warming!
It is set 89 years into the future, following a girl, Mara grow into womenhood while she fights to save those who are dear to her from the terror of the ocean swallowing up the world's land. It is a story about her journey doing this, while she grows up to quickly due to the responsibility she shoulders.
I only gave it three stars because although the characters are well developed and the storyline is great, it wasn't fast paced at first. It was interesting, but I wasn't hooked. It was page 256 where suddenly the pace changed and I was sucked into the story like I was there, racing alongside Mara and her new friends to save themselves. That is just my personal opinion. It was a fantastic book and the many chapters before that page were relevant and important as it describes the past and what is happening now in this magic world as Mara starts her journey, so without it, it wouldn't be as a great a book.
