refreshing post-apocalyptic YA trilogy part 1
I kinda forgot how I stumbled over this trilogy by K. Makansi, but it must've been somewhere in the depths of twitter. Intrigued by a short description, I bought it and read through half of it in one evening and the rest on a flight back home from England to Germany.
Not every post-apocalyptic YA novel is a clone of the Hunger Games and not every SciFi Novel has to be a space opera, VR or giant robots. The Sowing is both (pa YA and scifi) and neither (HG and spaceVRobots). What it is, is a gripping action novel with some political intrigue, great characters and a setting that is not the umpteenth clone of whatever was the current big thing.
After reading what was available of the series, I was happy to hear of the audiobook release.
And it does not disappoint. At all. The narration is very intense and especially the emotional, tense and action-packed moments of the story really shine. Also, Ivy's voicing of Demeter is, to put it in the words of the book itself: female. soft. low. and not just a little sexy.
Yes, this is almost the same as my amazon review of the same book. hey, they're both good.
