I started to watch the TV series a couple of years ago, just because Juliette Lewis was in it. And then they had the utter gall to kill her off in the third episode. WTF!!! So i binned watching the TV version and decided to read the books instead.
So how was the book? Awesome!
I was very surprised to see this listed as “horror” at Amazon. I would definitely put this in dystopian sci-fi, i didn’t notice any horror, just the normal dystopian sci-fi kind of stuff.
I’ve previously read Blake’s book, Dark Matter, which was exceptionally well written and Pines is just as good. Blake does a fantastic job of putting his protagonists into some really mind-bending, disturbing situations and putting the reader well and truly into the protagonist’s mind.
All in all, a great start to this trilogy and i’m diving straight into book 2, Wayward, very optimistic for more of Blake’s style of writing — i’m becoming a big fan.
