Review:Edge of Humanity by Carol Hone

Edge of Humanity by Carol Hone

Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance

Heat Rating: 1



When someone you love leaves you to die, finding out why can be worse than death.

From the moment Kara plunged from the airship to escape nine years of slavery, she'd been locked in battle with her own mind. Something inside of her doesn't seem right. Confronted with too many unanswered questions, she wonders if her captors have damaged her in some unseen way.

Seeking answers, Kara begins the journey of reuniting with the family she hasn’t seen since she was a child. Thankfully she isn’t alone on her quest…

Hassrian, a young apprentice to a biomechanical magician, helps guide her down her path. Although Hassrian is reluctant to aid her at first, danger draws the two together.

Only one thing can bring Kara’s hunt for the truth to an end – and it isn’t the looming presence of the airship, Husk.

Hunter's Review

This book wasn’t at all what I expected. In a first person narrative, Kara begins a journey that takes her across the land and through parts of her mind she cannot explain. I wanted to relate to her more than I did. She’s confused, and rightly so considering what is going on with her, but that confusion was so focused, so prevalent in the story that her mind and emotions were all over the place, a difficult narrative for me to digest in the first person.

The places and descriptions of things is somewhat amazing and the author is obviously gifted in writing Fantasy and Science Fiction. I can’t comment on the end without giving anything away but it was not what I expected but don’t expect this story to be a traditional love story.

I think fans of Science Fiction will enjoy reading this book.
