Physical ARC recieved from YAHQ Digital at YALC
Life outside the domes is not possible. At least that’s what Insiders are told.
Twins Eli and Talia shouldn’t exist. They’re Outsiders.Their home is a secret. Their lives are a secret. Arafel is a secret.
An unexpected forest raid forces Talia into a desperate mission to rescue her family while protecting the sacred Book of Arafel from those who would use it as a weapon. As Talia and her life long friend Max enter the dome, she makes some unexpected discoveries, and allies, in the form of rugged Insider August, that will change the course of her life forever.
She’ll stop at nothing to save her family but will she sacrifice her heart in the process?
The Fire Sermon meets Gladiator in this brilliant YA debut.
This was the first ARC I picked up after YALC and I wanted to love it.
I was so excited to read it and it sound right up my alley.
However I kind of only read 2 chapters over ten days, had no urge to return to picking it up, and when I did I noticed I kept reading the same bit over and over.
I don’t know why this happened because the writing itself was really good, the set up for the world was really interesting, and I loved the whole idea that these twins had grown up with one with nature.
The people living inside the dome provided a threat to the twins and their civilisation so I was really interested in what happened inside the dome. TO see their contrasts of living.
But alas that didn’t happen. There was nothing wrong I just couldn’t get into it.
So I did what any good book owner does and traded it to someone who was really looking forward to reading it! Every other review has certainly enjoyed it so you should definitely check out their reviews too.
