The book is set in the future and is divided into factions. There has been peace for hundred of years. But the start of a war seems to be inevitable.
An unexplained explosion happens and sets of a series of events that need to be investigated. Which happens when a group of people from different factions decide to find out what is actually happening and try to stop all out war that will have catastrophic effects.
The book has been really well written. The sci-fi aspect of the book had me gripped from the start. I thought the characters were really well written and all tied into the story nicely.
The world building could’ve been abit better for me. That is probably my only gripe with this book if I’m honest. I’m looking forward to reading the second book. Fingers crossed the author is writing it as we speak or type or read 😂
I’d like to thank Flame tree press for sending me this book. I really do appreciate it. This is my honest review.
