After finishing the first book, I couldn't wait to see what happened next. When I found out about this one, dropped everything to begin reading it, so that I could post the review today, so soon after my unboxing video. And I'm glad I did. With a really nice orange cover, this blended seamlessly with the other cover.

As I was reading Shifting Horizons I felt that it was a potentially good idea that had been let down by poor execution. Book two sees our dystopian Breakfast Club (the athlete, the brain, the princess et al.) are still chained to their character archetypes and unfortunately see no real growth. I also would have appreciated a more considered hand at editing, because the text is littered with errors and bad grammatical choices that are very distracting for me personally as a reader.

This second volume leads on from where the first one, Grey Sun, set the scene. Hero Ned and his cohorts at the mysterious prison/military training camp, have escaped the matrix-like enclosure where they were being held, to the outside world for the first time. Their captors however, are in hot pursuit and they barely escape with their lives. Now, they have to negotiate a totally new and unfamiliar desert world, of nomads with totally alien customs - and wildlife. Not much detail is gone into in ...more

I'm SJ Sherwood and I write young adult novels with a dystopian twist. I grew up in a small town in rural England and spent most of my youth dreaming of escaping to the bright lights of a big city. I live in London where I write and enjoy life. I love podcasts, choc-chip muffins and the smell of sizzling bacon.
