The Earth Dwellers (The Dwellers Saga) - David Estes

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Another One Bites The Dust by Queen  --Another series finished, I'm seriously on a roll with finishing series lately…so this song is for all of the series that I've conquered lately…also…because David Estes is not afraid to kill off key people and he literally slayed me with some throughout the series, especially one in particular from this very book…♫

Overall Rating:  4.8/5 Stars (Grade=A)

 

Book Title:  Earth Dwellers

Author:  David Estes

Series:  Book #7 of the combined Dwellers and Country Sagas

Genre:  YA, Dystopian

Source:  Own Kindle eBook

My Thoughts

 

Can you imagine people living underground?  Like way underground…so far down, it takes a half hour to get to the surface.

Imagine a fake sun, a fake horizon, a fake moon, even fake stars…and then imagine never knowing anything different. 

 

It's crazy to think about…the premise of this series is an intricately woven one.  7 books in total 3 from Dwellers saga, and 3 from the Country saga, all culminating in one final book…Earth Dwellers.  All the players (at least the ones he hasn't killed off) are here, but the book pov switches between only 4 of the main characters from other books: Sienna, Dazz, Adele and Tristan…even Perry makes an appearance.  Overall, a gripping, yet sweetly pleasing end to this total series.  There's so much more he (David Estes) could do with this world, though.  Oh…the possibilities…

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot:  4.5/5

Characters:  5/5

The Feels:  4.5/5

Addictiveness:  4/5

Theme:  5/5

Flow:  5/5

Backdrop (World Building):  5/5

Originality:  5/5

Book Cover:  4/5

Ending:  4.8/5 Cliffhanger:  Nope

 

Will I read more from David Estes?  Why yes, I would…

Good sequel
The Star Dwellers (The Dwellers Saga) - David Estes

Good sequel to The Moon Dwellers. The pace was pretty fast once again and there was plenty of action. I’m still confused as to whether this is a dystopian tale or paranormal, because Tristan and Adele’s have a (literally) painful connection which is still unexplained, yet gets mentioned as if it’s not abnormal. I was also shocked at the end when Adele and her friends were sent off on a killing mission by a loved one. Who does that? They are teenagers, right? Surely an older team could have been sent out to do the gruesome work. Other than those few quibbles, I enjoyed the story. On to the next one!

This one had me apprehensive...
The Sun Dwellers (The Dwellers Saga) - David Estes

I didn't know how it was going to end...I was so worried for them and their quest, I had to read a different book before I jumped back into this one.  

 

The Sun Dwellers, starts right where Star Dwellers leaves off, it is even more intense than the first two.  Tristan and Roc are with Adele, Tawni, and Trevor on a quest to kill President Nailin.  While intense it still had some amusing parts, especially from the ever witty Trevor.

 

Separately but together, they are coming of age and into their own.  There is a little more romance in this one, between Tristan and Adele and also between Roc and Tawni (they are so cute together) probably because they are together throughout the entire book.

 

There is one more book, but before I read Earth Dwellers, I need to read the companion series to Dwellers; The Country Saga, which is the same dystopian world just "up above".  Then Earth Dwellers is suppose to wrap-up both of the Saga's.  Looking forward to it.

Getting even better...
The Star Dwellers (The Dwellers Saga) - David Estes

Star Dwellers is the second book in the Dwellers Saga, it's starts basically right where Moon Dwellers leaves off.  It gets right into the action and barely lets up, it is told between Adele's and Tristan's POV's and switches every other chapter, just like the first book.  

 

I really like both of these character's, they feel so passionately, you can't help but root for them.  I also really like the secondary character's Roc and Tawni.  

 

This is great Dystopian Saga, and is great read for both Young Adults and Adults who are young at heart.

Well done for such a depressing world...
The Moon Dwellers - David Estes

This is a entertaining and relatively consuming read for such a dismal way for the world to end up.

 

 I can't really think of a more depressing way to live than underground.  

 

With no sun, or a breeze.  In the dark.  (I hope they take vitamin D supplements.)

 

This is all they know, though.

 

Over 500 years ago; a meteorite was on a collision course with Earth.  Everything was going to die when it hit.  So they burrowed underground, deep underground and held a lottery of sorts for which certain people would be able to go below and live.

 

There are three realms in the Dweller's Saga. There is the Sun Realm, the Moon Realm and the Star Realm.  Each one gets deeper underground, and darker too.  This first book in the series; takes place in the Moon Realm, and is about Adele and Tristan, who are somehow drawn to each other.  Adele is from the Moon Realm and Tristan is from the Sun Realm.  This book is the just the beginning of a rebellion to the way of life forced upon them from Sun Realm.

 

The next installment is the Star Dwellers, then the Sun Dwellers.  There is also a fourth book which is a final book for this series and the companion series, "The Country Saga".  It is called Earth Dwellers.

 

This is very well written, and I would highly recommend it if you like Dystopian Young Adult Stories.
