Roberta R. (Offbeat YA)
Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA.

Pros: Action, cool magic, surprises, moral dilemmas, and kick-ass heroines with a sense of humour.
Cons: Amidst the action, there are patches of telling-not-showing.
WARNING! Some gore and mature themes (but nothing overwhelming).
Will appeal to: Those who like imaginative worlds, lots of twists and turns, strong female characters and F/F romances. Those who are looking for a fresh approach to post-apocalypse.

First off...DISCLAIMER: I hav
Once again, as this story begins, a significant amount of time has passed since the last novel ended; this time five more years. As with previous volumes in the series, I anticipated being upset by the perceived missed events during that time, but it really wasn’t an issue. We drop right back into the lives of these characters whom we’ve come to know so well, have some brief catch-up as to what their lives are like now, and then just jump right into the story!

Another wonderful book by Edward Aubry! I love Dorothy, and am so glad this story focuses on her. The story has twists and turns that kept me turning the pages. Strontium and Felicia are fascinating characters with quick and witty dialogue--Strontium has become one of my favorites from the whole series. If you like adventure, magic, and awesomely fierce women, this needs to be your next book.

Edward Aubry is a graduate of Wesleyan University, with a degree in music composition. Improbably, this preceded a career as a teacher of high school mathematics and creative writing. He now lives in rural Pennsylvania with his wife and three spectacular daughters, where he fills his non-teaching hours spinning tales of time-travel, wise-cracking pixies, and an assortment of other impossible thing ...more
