  3. Adam Bender s work in this novel is fair The story he tells in Divided We Fall is one of a country struggling with the separation of Church and State There are few words that can express how emotive simple stories like this can be to a religious reader, however, beneath the surface it is a thoughtful story about extremes Heretics, soldiers of the Church, atheists and foreign enemies all collide to give an exciting account of Adam s interesting and fictitious world His peculiar use of pronouns an [...]

  10. The author provided me with a copy, and I really enjoyed it It had a lot of the world building I was hoping for after reading the first one, and I m hoping there s a third book that will deal with this mysterious Enemy My only quibbles are that there are a few minor things that a good edit should have picked up on, and I m not a fan of the hopping into a car and riding off into the sunset from the scene of a world changing event ending The world and the events feel quite realistic, and then thi [...]

  13. I m not sure if it was just personal opinion preference, but I preferred this book to the previous one Divided We Fall had characters with character I enjoyed the story line of actual war and revolution in this story versus the build up in the last book The pacing issues that bothered me in We, The Watched are gone I was also enveloped by the world this time around Greater story and great improvement by the author He had the great ideas to start with, but know he has me hooked by the story too [...]

  19. I got this book from Giveaway I didn t know this was sifi I guess I chose with cover.I normally don t read sifi book, but this was good.I haven t read volume 1 yet, but I caught up the story soon.Each character has different personality clearly, so I could imagine who did what I could imagine easy what story happening next, but still exciting thrilling.

  20. A really fun read I loved how we got to see the story unfold through both Eve and Seven Jon s perspectives There is plenty of action to keep the book moving, but the best parts are the character interactions While this can be described as a dystopian novel, it s not quite as dark as others from the genre The cast of characters can have fun even in bad times I enjoyed it from start to finish
