Why I read? I read her earlier series and really loved it.
Gut Feeling I was really nervous before starting to read this book. I had enjoyed the earlier series and I was worried that this series would be a let-down. However, I really enjoyed this series and thought that it is better than the first series. The world is so engrossing, the characters are interesting and it is a real page turner.
Summary Since these are relatively new books, I will keep the summary as abstract as possible. This is a world that values peace and hates violence/corruption. This is a world in which gatherers and sharers stalk the night. Gathers give a peaceful end to the dying and death to the corrupt. While, sharers give peace in order to heal.
Conclusion I really enjoyed the fact that this book was not set in fantasy’s traditional world of medieval Europe. It was a change to be placed within a world loosely based on that of Ancient Egypt. The world is a believable one. The books raise some interesting questions concerning the role of peace and war within any given society. READ THIS SERIES. I look forward to Jemison’s next offering
