What Readers Say
I loved Kez and Snow/Hale from the very beginning. Kez was such a great character. When you first meet her seems so timid and Hale is such a big, strong, somewhat, well, not somewhat, he was a dangerous guy, that I wasn’t sure about them … For two people with their pretty sad beginnings, it made for such a great story. And the author brought them together so wonderfully.Their story, to me, was so very endearing. Kez is much, much more than Hale realizes and he is much more than I would have ever given him credit for in the beginning. The author weaves their story together so well and the sci/fi wasn’t too technical for me to follow and pretty much imagine … there are bunnies. Yes, I said bunnies. Big bunnies. But again, it’s the two main characters that made me love this book so much.
I really liked this book. It’s reminiscent of the Riddick movies, with a dark, gritty world and hard-bitten, cynical characters. The world-building is rich and detailed to the point where I was pretty sure I could smell the spicy, fried seaweed that is such a favorite of the main characters and feel the soft fur of Kez’s bunnies. Snow is a great misunderstood bad boy who’s really a good guy with a hard exterior. Kez is an interesting character with enough backstory and history to make her seem real. Both main characters are secretive, so it takes a while to get to know them, but the journey is worth it and the plot moves forward steadily throughout the book. This isn’t a fast read, characters this complex take time to develop and there are a few twists and turns in the plot that need to be explored, but it is a fun read and well worth the time.
