STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Like Post Apocalyptic Adventure? Sinister Dystopias? A G Riddle? This is for you.
💛 If your ears prick up at the words “killer rain” then add this to you audio shelf. The premise is well-executed, with thoughtful development of the origin of the rain as well as its dystopian aftermath.
💚 If, like me, you enjoy the general thought exercise of spending time in a broken world, you won’t mind that it takes a few chapters for the plot to get going, And once it does, it’s a genuinely exciting race against time with sky high stakes.
❤️️ In a nutshell, we have likable characters fighting to survive in a grim reality. There’s a hint of romance, a scientific bent and a heap of camaraderie to keep things exciting. My only critique plot-wise is that I a shame that this is interspersed with a bit too much descriptive prose.
💜 This is very similar in nature to the work of A G Riddle, particularly his The Origin Mystery series. Like Ritter, Riddle puts the science in the centre of his fiction and has children as a focal point of his plot.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Pacific Street Publishing for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
