5.0 out of 5 stars snowman, 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heroes Die: The Acts of Caine: Book 1 (Kindle Edition)
An unusual mix of classical Orwell/Dicks/Heinlein esk scifi and modern fantasy. Might not be a hardcore fantasy fan's cup of tea, but as someone who grew up on Heinlein et al, it is a creative enjoyable read. Yes, building the back story for two realities and how they interact, does impart some initial drag on the plot but it's handled well and worth the small effort.
This book is not the run of the mill fantasy 'good versus evil', nor scifi prediction of the future. It is more a complex story of social roles, rights and responsibilities of individuals in two completely different realities.
But don't let that put you off, even if you completely ignore the deeper social commentary, it's still a clever, well written, highly enjoyable and engaging read.
