    More reviews and no fluff on the blog

    Although listed as teens, this read much like a middle grade book complete with heavy handed sermonizing moralizing and a very abrupt happy ending For what we have is a fantasy with serious messages about white European colonization of the 18th and 19th century It s about socio economic enslavement rather than racial and clearly it is aimed at the British As well, statements about hubris and the sins of the fathers as well as women s rights are added for kicks But very lazy writing world building and two dimensional characters really let down the messages contained within.In a place where the native population is starving under the harsh rule of a century s old conquest, fifteen year old Tommy Shore s father is an estate holder and politician and controls much of the large island on which Tommy lives Tommy s twin brother Bern is very much his father a bully and a sociopath Meanwhile, downtrodden Tamsin Henry s father is leading a revolt across many cities including the one near Tommy s estate to bring justice to the poor the cottagers When a demonstration goes wrong and Tamsin s father is captured one of the August 5 the five who led the revolt but were caught and imprisoned , Tamsin is injured while abetting her father s destruction of key warehouses Tommy finds her and saves her and they will meet up again later in the big city as Tamsin fights for her father s release befor...

    Goodreads First Reads I think this was billed as a young adult novel however the writing came across as of a middle grade style Overall it was an okay book though I didnt really get interested in the story until near the end where it finished rather abruptly.

    This was an interesting story about right triumphing over might The government is controlled by the Zunft government who are the major landowners and business owners The Cottagers are the ones who work the land and do all the work the upper class doesn t They are essentially tenant farmers on the Zunft land A revolution is brewing among the Cottagers who want equal rights Tamsin Henry s father is a journalist and one of the leaders of the revolution He gives Tamsin the task of setting a fire on their home island which is part of an orchestrated beginning to the revolution.Tamsin gets hurt in the explosion and is found by Tommy Shore who is the son of the Zunft politician Colston Shore who wants to put down any hint of revolution by the Cottagers Tommy was raised by Cottager Mrs Trueblood and seldom saw his father who was busy in the city with his government duties Tommy doesn t agree with his father s rigid policies toward the Cottagers but has no power Tommy leaves Tamsin on the doorstep of another Cottager rather than turn her o...

    I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really looked forward to reading this book because it sounded like it would be full of action, smokey rebellion and two teens fighting to change their world While all of those elements were indeed part of the story, the majority of the book focused on politics, and it was boring The plot started off with a bang but then it got dredged down with political manuvering A lot of the plot was spent reiterating the point that the current power structure was bad, something readers and even the characters recognized before the first two chapters were finished Tommy, the protagonist from the upper level of society, didn t have to uncover any shocking secrets about his society or his father There was no journey of growth or slowly blooming horror as corruption emerged He knew from the beginning that his dad was a pretty awful person, so why did the author spend all that time making Tommy see examples of how corrupt his father and his cronies really were On top of that, Tommy had very easily weighted internal conflicts He had no...

    Two teens on opposite political sides find that they have than they thought they had in common in this book that could represent the future Fourteen year old Tommy Shore is the son of the leader of the Aeren Islands His father, Colston, is a fierce taskmaster, and while Tommy has always known that his father was relentless, he comes to realize just how far he will go to reach his goals Honor means nothing to the man, as Tommy learns to his disappointment In the case of Tamsin Henry, whose father leads the rebels who want to change things, she also realizes that her father will stop at nothing, even endangering the lives of his loved ones, for his goals She eventually masterminds a work stoppage campaign that brings hope to the citizenry who have been dealing with oppression for so long Some of the scenes remind me of recent events such as the rallying around the French publication attacked by terrorists There were plenty of dangling t...

    Fourteen year old Tommy Shore has lived a sheltered, privileged life with his every need attended to His father is the chief administrator of Aeren and the most powerful man in the country But when a rebel faction revolts, Tommy is unwittingly pulled into the fight and his eyes opened to the plight of the serving class Tommy meets Tasmin, the daughter of the rebel leader Through her, Tommy learns the truth about his father and their way of life.The premise is promising, but fails to deliver The action is sparse and is injected sporadically throughout the overbearing political descriptions Stronger world building and fully developed characters would have helped this title With its light handling of the issues revo...
