Dystopian isn’t usually one of my go to reads. But when I got invited to participate in this I put those thoughts aside and read the story. This isn’t what I thought it was going to be. There were so many extra layers to the story that I didn’t expect. Instead of being all about doom and gloom there was actually a premise behind that happening. The author does a great job of bringing in questions that are prevalent not just in a dystopian world but also now.
If you like dystopian worlds that aren’t about doom and gloom then you should definitely check this out.
Kristin Ward has loved writing since middle school but took thirty years to do something serious about it. The result is her Best Indie Book Award-winning novel, After the Green Withered, followed by the sequel, Burden of Truth. She lives in a small town in Connecticut with her husband, three sons, and many furry and feathered friends. A SciFi geek to the core, she is fueled by dark chocolate and coffee and can be heard quoting eighties movies on a regular basis.
