after a lot of thinking, this book is going to be a solid 3.5 (round up to 4) for me.

i really loved the characters and the plot twists in the book. i think cee was my favorite character in the entire book. she was set up to be one thing, but once we found out what she really was, her story took a whole different direction. i think it helped that she was the first person narrator of her chapters. i also really liked her relationship with hero!

also the plot twists had me on the edge of my seat. i literally couldn't stop reading because every time i hit the end of a chapter, there was something propelling me forward into the next chapter. it made this book very hard to put down.

the issues i had were with the world-building and the pacing. i liked that it wasn't just an info dump about the eco-cities, but sometimes i felt lost because stuff would be mentioned, barely explained, and then it was continuously mentioned throughout the entire book. I think a small glossary of the important acts and acronyms of the eco-city would've been helpful. if i ever reread this i might write these things down as i go along to avoid the confusion.

on top of that, i had issues with the pacing. i didn't mind cee's chapters, although sometimes it veered away from the survivalist stuff. but we would get a cliffhanger on cee's chapter, and then during kasey's chapter it would be a combination of a lot of information and extremely dense language. plus, kasey's chapters often ended up being a lot longer than cee's.

kasey as a character is more analytical and less emotional, so her chapters were interesting but took more to get through. they often ended up slowing me down because if i didn't pay attention in a spot i missed something, but at the same time there wasn't a lot of action going on. i understand why this was necessary, but it still took away from the reading experience for me.

anyways, even with the issues i would definitely recommend buying this book. the absolute beauty of the cover and the hardback itself make it one of my favorite additions to my collection! check out any tw/cw before reading! - lindsey ( )

There was so much hype about this book on Twitter - 2 sisters mysteriously separated, one stranded on an island and one in a sky city after climate change made most of the world unlivable. I was so excited to read it but it was very disappointing. Nothing happens in the first half of the book as the author struggles with confusing world-building. The characters don't really have personalities so it's hard to care about them. The ending is unsatisfying. I'm giving two stars for the interesting premise and plot twist despite the clumsy execution. ( )

Even though this book was rather slow I actually enjoyed it up until the ending, the ending did not make me happy... ( )

Series Info/Source: This is a stand alone book. I got a finished copy of this through Amazon Vine to review.

Thoughts: I was expecting to love this but ended up mostly frustrated with it. While I did stay engaged in most of the story and did finish it, I found the ending incredibly unsatisfying.

The story alternates between Cee (who has been trapped on an island for years) and Kasey (her very highly intelligent sister who is living on an eco-city as a result of climate collapse). The first half of the book moves at a very deliberate pace..which I hoped was building to something amazing.

Unfortunately, even though the story does pick up pace in the second half of the book, it starts to jump around a lot both in POV and time and becomes very confusing. I found myself rereading portions over and over again. None of the science here is explained at all and just assumed to be viable at a very high sci-fi level. Some of the leaps in logic and story are just very hard to follow.

Then the ending...absolutely no closure there. This is one of those books where the reader gets to decide what they think happened and I hate those types of books. I feel like the author is just being lazy because they aren't sure what they actually want to have happen.

So, did I enjoy parts of this book...yes. Did I think the ideas presented were intriguing...yes. However, the pacing was off and, towards the end, the story feels very fractured. Then there is absolutely no closure what-so-ever. If you dig those kinds of books you may love this...for me those kinds of books are my nemesis, I absolutely hate them.

My Summary (3/5): Overall this book was disappointing to me. I liked some of the ideas presented but also felt like the pacing was very inconsistent. The story starts out slow and then kind of fractures, jumping around and switching POV willy nilly. Then the ending just killed me, there is no closure and nothing is resolved...I hate those kinds of books. I finished it, but I won’t be seeking out more of He’s books. ( )
