Review by pearls
I thoroughly enjoy the way Houston Havens is able to balance SciFi, paranormal, and psychic/mystical genres into a dystopian world that is still full of hope. Her women are strong. The men are fierce, loyal and willing to do anything for the woman they love. And they are all unique individuals with developed back stories that emerge as you unwrap the characters through the plot.
This book can be read as a stand-alone. Coming to terms with their grief after a tragic loss, the reader is able to see the backstories that built this relationship as the characters move past denial and accept what has happened in a previous event. The surviving members are left aloft without their leader. Dealing with guilt, anger, and denial, each has to find a way to hold on to the relationship or have it become a causality of the war, too. This book delves deeper into the psyche of the characters, examining how each deals in their own way with the stasis created by grief and the personal fight it takes to be able to live again, even to love again.
