Happy Release Day to Jane Redd. This book is a great read, one that had me turning pages at top speed until late at night!
USA Today bestselling author Jane Redd presents LAKE TOWN, A Solstice Novel, #2:
Jezebel James is on the run after her true abilities are discovered by the Legislature, and the only one who can protect her is Sol. In order to survive, Sol sends her into an underground hideout where she quickly discovers all that she thought was true in her dying world is false. Jez reunites with Rueben and his band of insurgents, and together they escape to Lake Town, only to find that the entire island is preparing to invade the City.
But Sol has been left behind and forced to join the ranks of the Faction, who are working against the Legislature from within. As Jez works with the insurgents and their plan to destroy the City, she learns that attacking the City might save thousands of lives, but it will destroy Sol, the man she knows she can’t live without.
Praise for SOLSTICE, Book #1: “In this slickly told YA sci-fi tale by Redd, climate change has brought about the world that George Orwell famously predicted, only a century or so behind schedule. [Solstice] has a timely ecological hook. A solid … YA tale of dictatorship, set in 2099 that parties like it’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.” –Kirkus Reviews
Lake town is the second book in the Solstice series, and a action-packed sequel to the first read in this series.
Jez is safe in a Lake Town whilst Sol is captured by the Legislature being tortured to give up the plan of the Lake Town people. Although this book has less romance then the first book, the fast pace and the sespence more then makes up for that. Also this book gives us chapthers into Sol’s POV, adding a lot of depth and demension into the plot.
I would say this is a very good follow-up, but you need to read the first book in this series to keep up with this story. I was one of the lucky one’s that got to beta-read this book in the very first draft, way back in June of last year. It was great in the aspect that I didn’t have to wait as long for the continuation of the story, but now I am so ready for the next book.
In case you missed the first book in this series, you can read all about it here. Be sure to pick up book 2 and if you haven’t given this series a go, pick it up now, you will not regret it!
