However, all is not as it seems and their new world is built on lies, megalomania and tyranny, and is very much Dystopian.
The main protagonists, Jack and Lia, were childhood sweethearts, and many years later they manage to escape following a small raid by others. On the so called attackers gives them assistance to escape, put is horrendously tortured to find out where Jack and Lia have gone.
On the run from the young adults not only have to navigate their way through an alien and hostile environment, but have to follow the vague directions given to find the answer to all their questions. All of which has to be done whilst avoiding vicious foes and the Nezran Scouts out to kill them.
It was wonderfully paced, with nice twists, turns and glimpses of kindness and humanitarianism.
There was a downside though, and that was the cliff-hanging ending. I've just checked John Kaden's blog on GoodReads, and he announced in September 2013 that there will be a sequel eventually, so fingers crossed it won't take too long - this could definitely turn into a saga of epic proportions.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading of their travails, awarding 4 Stars. If I'd had the ability to give half star ratings, there is not doubt it would have been 4.5. Why not 5? Well, there were a few errors/bug bears that kept it off the top spot - please see the fuller Blog Post #409 in January 2014.
Can I just say that the cover artwork was stunning, and really says so much about the world that Jack and Lia inhabit. Kudos to the author for choosing it.
Two brave orphans, Jack and Kia fight against Azrana' s indoctrination, and run away to warn Alexandria, their only hope against Azrana' s cruel rein, of the King' s intention of seeking out weaker societies to wipe them off the face of the earth.
The characters in the story are distinct personalities, good, bad, mad, and those who just wish to live 'normal' lives.
The landscapes are succinctly, described vividly described
