Recommended to Virginia by: The Big Idea
Read from June 23 to 25, 2012

Even though it is the first in a duology, there is a satisfactory resolution and ending. Important loose ends are tied up and even if you don't read the remaining book, you will be satisfied. I enjoy that aspect!

What I really enjoyed, though, was the fact that the majority of this world is black or brown. Yes, there are lighter colored folks in this world - but they are not the main focus. Even the hairstyles have dreadlocks! I think that is beyond awesome.

I would not really want to live in this world, but I can appreciate the story set within it! In fact, I highly agreed with the main antagonist in this novel - his ideas are sound and even good. It's just that his method of achieving his goals is INSANE.

Highly recommend!
