As a first time novel, Bright City, is an interesting ticket into a world very different from ours, but not. The motivations of the characters aren't so far away from modern people and it makes it quite easy to fall into the story, even though this is not my preferred genre.

Abigail Drexler has been raised all her life in a sheltered colony with very strict rules. The place can feel almost cultish at times and her naivete from this setting and delusion of power make for an interesting foundation

A fast paced and delightful debut novel by afrofuturist author, D.C. Edwards. Our kick-ass, high-ranking heroine's world is upended when she is accused of treason, and cast out of the walled city she calls home. She finds herself alone, stripped of power and tech in the near-wastelands of After-The-Fall-America. Her path of redemption leads her to Bright City where information is power, ruthlessness is plentiful, and loyalty is scarce. To clear her name back home, she'll have to escape Bright Ci ...more

I enjoyed the book and want more. I like the style overall, and found the story and plot compelling. There were quite a few editing errors, including errors that left me wondering what was going on for a moment. The story could have used more detail and fleshing out. A fun read, recommended to those who can overlook occasional errors and enjoy filling in some gaps in detail.
