I received this book for review from [Young Adult Reads] r2r 38 - The Moon Dwellers by David EstesWhat can I say about this book? Firstly I had to stop and think before composing this review. I didn't want to come across as a fangirl!I found the characters to be believable. Although there was attraction between the two main characters, it was extremely well done and I felt it didn't detract from the action. It felt like real life. The romance was just right. The pacing within the book was very good, the story didn't drag and moved along nicely. There was a good balance between developing the characters and the world building.I liked the switching between characters throughout the story and in the build up to the final scenes. It was easy to keep up because the timeline was the same.Overall I loved this book, I will certainly be reading the next in the series.
This book was really interesting. I've not read anything like it previously.The main character, Elei, begins the book having been shot. His employer was also shot and presses a piece of paper with an address into his hand before dying. The story follows Elei's journey to the address where he meets the other characters and onwards. As well as escaping his pursuers, he has a battle of his own with warring parasites inside his body.The book was well paced and kept my interest to the end. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.
Lovely book written from the view of a man looking back at his childhood in the 50's. He lost his parents at an early age and the story follows him as he and his remaining family adjust to a new life. The story was well paced and kept my interest until the end.
