Dystopia Meets Realistic Fiction
Enslavement (One Bright Future, #1) - Melinda Friesen

Set in the future, after our world has gone through an economic disaster and been rebuilt with a new government and a mandatory type of currency, this book felt more like a realistic fiction piece than a dystopia.  The world is basically the same as it was before, but with the difference of everyone needing to be chipped and that's how things are paid for.  Like any government, you have those for it, those against it and those that take things as they are without thinking into it.


The story and characters the author has presented is some ways parallel that of history. People are enslaved because they are different, being bought and sold like a commodity, stripped of ;basic rights and liberties and made to act a certain way by their owners.  This story is told from the POV of a teenage girl, Rielle, on the brink of adulthood, whose parents refused to conform to what they government wanted and in turn the government has torn the family apart.


Put into the job as a housekeeper, Rielle does what she is told to do with a small bit of defiance on her own part that carries it's own weight.  The reader learns the daily toll of those who are Contracts for the Banker.  We also learn secrets along that way that creates a heavy burden on those with them.  Each character has his or her own story which comes out in bits and pieces here and there.


This was an interesting read.  It really made me think about different things.  It also drove me a bit crazy because Reille didn't really put up a fight.  She put up walls and eventually let certain people in, who helped guide her to the end result, but I felt there should have been more action from her.


I recommend this to anyone who likes to read books about where our society could find itself in the future.  The way our lives could change due to crooked politicians and government dangling a carrot in our faces at times of major upheaval and the outcomes of that.  A very insightful book from a debut author.  I look forward to reading more in this series and whatever else the author writes.

True Epic That Will Knock Your Socks Off!
The Earth Dwellers: 4 (The Dwellers Saga) - David Estes

It’s moments after I’ve read the final word of The Earth Dwellers and everything that’s happened from The Dwellers Saga through The Country Saga is hitting me all at once.  The emotions are running amok and honestly, I’m quite near tears because this compilation of two separate but epic series has come to an end.  Please pass the tissues.


Where to start?  This particular book brought all the different countries and realms together.  The beginning of the book started right where The Sun Dwellers and Water and Storm Country left off.  There wasn’t a single beat missed and quickly off I went on further adventures combining all the characters, their hopes, dreams, insecurities, strengths and humor and by the end I felt like I was sent through the ringer a few times. 


David Estes, who I consider a dear friend, has written blockbuster after blockbuster and amazes me each and every time.  The things he puts his characters through would make a grown man stop in his tracks and do a double take.  You would think that some of the things done would be offensive but he does it with dignity and with love for them, even if the outcome is the worst possible.  He puts his heart and soul into his books and it shows, through his words and actions.


The epic battle is fought, people you thought were dead are found, people you have embraced die.  That is the way of war and has been and forever will be.  The Glassies, which you really haven’t heard much about since Fire Country, are the center point of this story.  Perry, also from Fire Country, is brought back and has his fair share of an encore return. 


This particular quote brought tears to my eyes and a body shudder of a sob:  “I can’t bring him back, but together we can honor him by forgiving the soldiers who were only following orders given to them by those who would destroy us all.”…..Tears are running down his cheeks, but he’s nodding.  “I will honor him…”  We see, in these few sentences, a leader rise from the ashes.  Words that moved me to the core.


“My skin tingles and warmth roars through me and my feet are so fast, far faster than those around me.”  Its passages like this one that made my heart beat faster and take hold of me and just warm my soul.


I recommend this to everyone who has read the Dwellers and Country Saga’s and I recommend both of those to everyone.  They will have you missing meals, staying up to all hours, and more because they are all just that good!  Bravo David Estes!  BRAVO!
