Primitive by Rebecca Fernfield.They killed her ‘father’. They took her brother. Now they want her sister. Only one chance to escape. Can she take it?Absolutely fantastic read with brilliant characters. I loved the story. How they treated her and how she fought back. Highly recommended. 5*. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book from tbc on fb.
I loved this book, I've never read anything like it before. I found it very hard to put it down, impossible even at times. The author has done a fantastic job at pulling me into the book as well as making me bond with the characters.Meriall lives in a small village. Unfortunately, her family and others live in fear that one of them will be taken just like her brother and others before.Meriall and her friends go in search of some medicine for their friend Emett in a nearby abandoned village, but they are on limited time and have to make it back before assembly.Managing to make it to the abandoned town they manage to get themselves a good haul of things before heading off back home. Unfortunately not with anything that is of use to Emett.Emotions hit high after Meriall and Pascha follow a group of enforcers and discover they are taking their friends Isa and Rias family to be punished. Finding out their suspicions were right about Jannet being an informer after they caught her red-handed and with some persuasion, she confesses it all but then threatens to tell the watcher Meriall's family secrets too if she doesn't let her go.Meriall and |Pascha manage to set Ish and Ria free, they, their mothers, Meriall's sister and The Watchers wife flee the town top the abandoned village, Hawdale and just about make it without being seen.Unfortunately, most of the group are caught, Ish, Meriall and Pascha manage to avoid capture but are now running for their lives when something terrible happens to one of the group and Meriall is in turmoil over her loss.All of the group are taken to the Capital which is run by the founding fathers.Because of Merialls great success in making the leaders angry she is told she has to go into the pit where she will either break or die when someone she thought she lost appears.Managing to beat the pit Meriall and her friends manage to escape yet again, but she decides she can't leave the children that were transported previously and went back to save them with Owin. Making up a small resistance they go back and make up a plan, but they find themselves double-crossed, and Meriall is caught and sentenced to death. She is left surprised when her cell door is open, but not by a guard...Fighting for survival will they make their way out alive.
Merrial is rebellious, protective and headstrong. The plot feels sort of like Hunger Games meets Handmaid's Tale. The author's knowledge of survival skills is tactfully woven into the tale.It seems to be more common these days for writers to write in the 'first person, present tense' format. When done well, this can be quite effective - gripping and immediate - however, it is very difficult to get it right. Authors needs to be conscious of not including too many unnecessary details in the story which will slow the pace of the plot down too much, and distract the reader from the important bigger picture. Too many trivial details 'take you out' of the exciting, suspenseful place you want them to be.But apart from that, the story is very suspenseful and does have you wondering what's going to happen next. There is a sweet burgeoning romance to take some of the edge off the doom and gloom and it ends with a wicked cliffhanger. A great attempt for a first novel.
This series just gets better. Wow!!!
Primitive (Dark Powers Rising Book 2)By: Rebecca Fernfield5 out of 5 starsThe story Primitive (Dark Powers Rising Book 2) by Rebecca Fernfield is a YA/Dystopian book. What do you do when you find out the truth behind those you have put your trust in? This is the question that Meriall and Pascha must answer when the truth is revealed about those they call the Primitives and the Collection Day. This is a wonderful journey into a world that seems to be without hope and you wonder where your next meal is coming from. Loved ones disappear and despair sets in. Even though this is a dark look into a future world there is the theme of hope that resounds in the book. I love the characters of Meriall and Pascha as they are bound and determined to fight for their loved ones and will not allow anyone to be left behind. This story shows how those who have the power lord it over those that don’t and push their own agenda instead of what the best needs of the people are. Alliances are formed and sides are drawn. Who will survive? I received a copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.
