Summary of the Book:

“Something special and unique in its genre. Worth reading the first time and even worth revisiting to explore its complex, fresh ideas.” “In the dystopian genre, this can be a difficult line to walk, but Stelling does it masterfully.” “[The] writing in this book is beautiful.” — Steph Huddleston, The Independent Book Review

“Atmospheric and lyrical, telling the story like it took place in a dream without slowing the pace or dulling the storyline.” — Jennia Ahava, Blogger

In this near-future utopia, in Halcyon all are free. People with wings fly alongside skyline railcars, between the towers. They are more than what we’ve known as human, the next stage of our evolution. Amid the psychic computers and genetic freaks, competitive laser sports and mindless bots, runs a love triangle stronger than death itself. Over these three nights in 2051, Harmony and Azad must find their way through misfits and prophets, blood and tears, to new horizons. Their fate, in the time of climate change, in the afterglow of the rise of machines, is entwined with the world.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have not really been into the sci-fi genre until the last few years. I have to say this author has a very poetic way of writing and that was okay with me. The way the world is described I felt like I was there with the characters for their journey over three days. I am not sure about love triangles for me they are over used in writing. this centers around Harmony and a set of brothers. It is a wonderful look at the future with things we are dealing with in our own times. This the first book by this author that I have read and I would like to see more. It did make me stop a few times to think about what was happening. That is a good thing for me.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
