Considering the fact that they got kicked out of the domed city and set out to rebuild an ancient ruin in an apocalyptic wasteland, the rebels and the citizens of Florence were doing pretty well. True, they have to deal with the occasional dust storm that blows in and turns everything into a desert and the thunderstorms that come after those which bring freshwater oceans onto their houses, but no one has been buried or drowned yet. Pretty much the normal things for a moonless Earth that has had ...more

“Wham, bam, everybody up in arms all over again.” – Luca

There is a hallmark of Howalt’s stories related to the concept of deep dive documentaries. With a quick search, you can find hours-long video essays that explore the arguments of unheard-of fandoms. You could become an expert at smelting iron ore for long-dead online games. Going into such a discussion, you are often being gradually introduced to an alien world. However, by the end? You’ve embraced that new world and see everything through

Marie Howalt's worlds and words never fail to blow me away. It is a pure joy to read their books, and Seeking Shelter is no exception.

Following up on "We Lost the Sky", this second part of the Moonless trilogy takes the cast into the early months of their building of a new community in the ruins of Sienna. While the first book saw the characters realize what they needed was each other, this book seems them take their found family to a new level: A society. Dust storms, predators, illness, and h

Howalt’s spectacular Moonless series, the saga of a group of rebels struggling to survive in a ruined world, continues where We Lost the Sky left off.

The Florentine rebels, now the residents of a new settlement built from the scavenged remnants of the ancient ruins of Siena, are fighting to build a new society while surviving the vicious dust storms and unforgiving terrains of the wasteland. But the bigger threat to Sienans comes in the form of a silent killer. And a mysterious radio signal mean

The sequel to We Lost The Sky, this book picks up some months after where the last one ended.

We mostly follow the inhabitants of the "new" city of Siena as they learn what the need to know in order to navigate their new lives.

There are a couple of new POV-characters and a reunion with the ones that made it out of the last book alive. Luca is here, of course, being wonderfully obnoxious as always. And Renn, who just for once gets to act like a ding-dong, which is a interesting new side to him. Al

In future Italy, Florence protects itself from the outside world under huge domes. The stories of a wanderer, a "reborn" engineer, and a politician's daughter (as well as some important side characters) come together and interweave - because not everything in Florence is as perfect as it may seem...
The second book is again told from multiple points of view - love it! - in third-person narration. For me, the difference of the protagonists was also mirrored in the writing style, so that each of th

[I received an ARC from the author. All opnions are my own]

To say that I was excited when I found out that We Lost the Sky would get a sequel, would be an understatement. I definitely wasn't ready to let the characters and world go yet, I needed at least one more book.

Seeking Shelter starts where We Lost the Sky ends, and we now follow the former rebels as they attempt to build a society in the middle of a broken world. As you might have guessed, they don't exactly have an easy road ahead of th

This series is a must for anyone that lives Sci-fi and post apocalyptic stories. There are diverse characters that are absolutely brought to life in these pages.

You know how second books usually are more slow paced and full of just adding information? Well not this one. You do get to know more of the characters, whole lot! And new bunch too but slow pace isn't something this story does. It's... There are places for breathing, the action, the suspense where you just bite your lip and wait which way the ssh hits the ceiling as Luca would say, there's humour, there's surprise there's just everything that gets you captured. Like the first book, you can have ...more
