A Book Review:: The Girl Who Stole Tomorrow (S-Impact Book 1) Kindle Edition by D.B. McDowell (Author)


A Book Review:: 


The Girl Who Stole Tomorrow (S-Impact Book 1) Kindle Edition by D.B. McDowell (Author)





Overview

Book description: As Seeker 13, Alycia Saldevia is committed to her job fighting the seijin—an elemental race that decimated the surface of Vantros nearly 175 circuits ago. Since she was a child, Alycia dreamed of fighting back against the monsters that drove humanity underground. But her dreams are shattered when she makes a horrifying discovery. 

In the great tradition of  Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, The Girl Who Stole Tomorrow takes you on an epic Dystopian adventure where nothing is as it seems, friends are enemies are friends, and the entire world unravels by the triumphant tragic end. 

At times a bit darker than my normal tastes would have allowed, a book full of this much loss somehow still manages to leave you feeling full of hope for tomorrow as each page turns.

The author, D.B. McDowell, does a marvelous job pulling the thread of the tapestry as it unravels through tragedy after tragedy, while weaving beneath the pages an end you don't expect.

There were two scenes in my mind that would make this a PG-13 read, not for younger audiences. IF this were a movie it might be rated higher, but the author does a good job of giving you enough, but not too much.

I typically like to give the good and the bad, but honestly... this was an amazing read. One of the best stories I've read in a very long time. 

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for free with a request to review the book. The review is my open and honest opinion. Buy it on Amazon (Affiliate Link Here)
