One of the most awesome aspects of Jonathan Moore's most recent books is how they are all stand alone novels set in a central world; each book falls under a different genre (psychological thriller, police procedural, dystopian thriller) and are set in different time periods. This being the third (dystopian thriller), I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It did have some similar vibes to The Dark Room; there was a bit of romance mixed in with some darker, suspenseful themes, but replace procedural with mobster/conspiracy theories and you'd have a clearer picture of what this book is.

While I loved the blending of lighter elements into the darker structure of TDR, I felt that the romance was a little too strong for my taste in this book. It's worth mentioning that this genre is not my typical go-to; in fact, I rarely read it and I feel like those who enjoy this type of story will appreciate it's subtle nuances much more than I was able to. The writing style is exquisite, and the ending was a nice little one-two punch, so I think I'm in the minority when feeling that the overall story was just a 3 star. Maybe I felt a little hurried along throughout the narrative and wished there had been just a little more meat to give it a few extra pages. Regardless, Moore is incredibly talented and will remain on my list of one-click authors. I admire his bravery at investigating many genres and tying them together in such a fun way.

Many thanks to the publisher for providing my copy.

Well, I’m glad it wasn’t just me! 🤣 I can’t really even say why I didn’t take to it this time; there wasn’t anything particularly wrong with it. Maybe I just didn’t want the distraction.

Tad I liked it a bit more than you, it was a 4 star, close to 4.5 star read for me. Fair take on the book though. It was my first by Moore and I do enjoy the elements he was playing in here.
