This book was sent to me by the author for a honest review and I am so glad he did! But knowing that he sent it to me, does not influence the direction of this review.
It is a dystopian book set in the year 2154, and the world is now back in a medieval type of world. It is about a young man named Adam who is about to join the Grey Guard which defend the city. He wants to change the broken system of his society, and to do that he will find a way to bring down their leader.
I really enjoyed this book, it was nice to see a different type of dystopian society where they go back instead of going forward with their society. I love the medieval vibe, I enjoy reading books in that style so it was one of my favorites in that genre. It had walled cities, old fashioned weapons which just made me excited to read this! There was some slight world building, but not much; and it was really done well. His writing was times was a bit simple, but it overall his writing was spot on. I was very impressed with what I read though, for a first time author I really enjoyed this book. His ideas for the story were well executed, and I felt the way he set up the plot was awesome.
This book though, had to many up and downs in it! So many things happened, and a lot happened to Adam so I felt so bad for him! He was a good character, very morally good and so concerned with helping others around him. He showed so much courage, and it was interesting reading about him and reading his thoughts throughout the story. There are some improvements that could be done but for a first book, it was really good.
Overall there were moments that I really enjoyed, as well as moments where it felt silly in terms of plot. But I really liked it, and I cannot wait to see where the next books will go, as well as where the author will go in his future books. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in dystopian with a different sort of direction! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
