This was overall a very enjoyable read, but there were a few points that keep me from fully enjoying the story despite several interesting characters and an interesting world.

First, much of this 'new' world revolves around genetic manipulation and mutation, but the author seems to know very little about the subject even though it's foundational to her version of the future. In the story, adult humans are routinely made into monstrous beings by unknowledgeable men using a seemingly inexhaustible...more

Interesting, a bit weird...and yet...fascinating all the same! :D

Speculative fiction (Christian) I loved this series. Read both books, not it seems the publishers won't publish the third book in the series. I sure hope they change their minds, I loved this series.

Initially, I thought I would be putting the book down within a few chapters, as it wasn't my genre. Then I thought the story was really bizarre. Once I was two chapters in, I was fascinated and hooked like a fish on a multi-worm line. Kathryn Mackel created this fantasy thriller with hideous creatures, evil sorcerers, wild adventures, and at the core is faith. A combination that makes you think of the world of the spirit, what lies behind our existence, and where our future lies...and with Whom....more
