After the Flood

After the Flood review Ø 3 Kassandra Montag Ð 3 summary Nd information in the few remaining outposts of civilization For seven years Myra has grieved the loss of her oldest daughter Row who was stolen by her father after a monstrous deluge overtook their home in Nebraska Then in a violent confrontation with a stranger Myra suddenly discovers that Row was last seen in a far off encampment near the Artic Circle Throwing aside her usual caution Myra and Pearl embark on a perilous voyage into the icy northern seas hoping against hope that Row will still be thereOn their journey Myra and Pearl join forces with a larger ship an. Kassandra Montag s debut was evocative raw and atmospheric It is 100 years in the future and the world has flooded the only habitable land are the mountain peaks Myra and her daughter Pearl are living in a boat endlessly searching for the daughter she has lost A violent encounter with a raider leads her to believe that her daughter truly still is alive but is far away in the north and the journey to get there is treacherous Myra is a fierce mama bear and nothing is going to stop her This new world is desolate and full of danger No rules No laws No hope I ve been struggling with what to write in my review for this book I think for me it was just a case of the right book at the wrong time The story was action packed the writing was riveting and the characters were well developed But the book left me feeling empty I realize this is a story about the end of the world and it was not meant to be uplifting but I just needed some glimmer of hope Maybe there was one maybe I just missed it Also Myra was unlikable and extremely selfish I admired her strength and her determination to save her daughter but at what cost She was willing to put so many people s lives in danger including her other daughters Not to mention she was manipulative and a liar I ve read several reviews of this book and people absolutely loved it In fact I read one review and they stated this was the best dystopian they had ever read So while this was not a good fit for me it might be for you It was definitely well written well executed and I will absolutely read another book from this authorThis book in three emoji s Big thanks to William Morrow for my copy of this book

After the Flood review Ø 3 Kassandra Montag Ð 3 summary D Myra finds herself bonding with her fellow seekers who hope to build a safe haven together in this dangerous new world But secrets lust and betrayals threaten their dream and after their fortunes take a shocking and bloody turn Myra can no longer ignore the uestion of whether saving Row is worth endangering Pearl and her fellow travelersA compulsively readable novel of dark despair and soaring hope After the Flood is a magnificent action packed and sometimes frightening odyssey laced with wonder an affecting and wholly original saga both redemptive and astonishing?. 35 starsIn this remarkable debut most of the earth is covered by water after years of devastating flooding Livable land is minimal and raider ships along with breeding ships are a constant danger Civilization has collapsed and there are no basic amenities Myra and her daughter Pearl survive by fishing and trading for basic necessities When Myra hears her older daughter Row who was taken from her 7 years ago was seen alive in a northern community they leave on a dangerous journey by sea to search for her After running into trouble Myra combines forces with the crew of a larger ship and she will stop at nothing in order to find her daughter regardless of the danger or conseuences This is an adventure tale of survival I won t soon forget The world building was well crafted and the image of this new world was terrifying Yet this book is so much than a survival story It s a story of survival but also a story about grief and holding onto hope against all the odds It s about strength of character and sacrificing for those you love It s about opening up and trusting people when your life normally depends on the mistrust of people I did enjoy this story but it is a bleak one and is overly long with some repetitiveness This novel will appeal to those who don t reuire their characters to be likable There are moral ambiguities and I was left with much to ponder after I turned the last page Marialyce and I deviated from our usual genres with this post apocalyptic book and there was much to discussFor our duo review of this book and others please visit
