New threats need new heroes…

The Lady Scribe’s Review: I really enjoyed this book. I acquired it as an ARC. While I felt the first quarter of it was a bit slow, once it picked up its pace, it was a real nail-biter, blending science fiction, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, and western elements for a unique tale. While it doesn’t quite rank as one of my favorite books, it’s a solid 4* novel.
The cast of characters, including a very young Wren, make this story truly intriguing. I did find it took me a bit to get into the swing of Wren as the POV character at times, but otherwise found this to be a really enjoyable novel.
Recommended! (You may want to read Three first, but… be forewarned. The cast and characters differ between Three and Morningside Fall, and some readers may not like the changes…)
