Book Review - The Survivors: Point of Origin
One year ago, Sadie Matthau was living among humans, existing as one of them. But now she wakes each morning in a house in the Survivors’ City, listening to the invocations and insults of her family members as they cope with their new future. A war. Rogue abandoners turned monsters. Sadie and the icy Winters living in their midst, bringing the outside world in. The Survivors: Point of Origin is Sadie’s quest to save her family. But can she find what she is looking for when she can barely stomach the Winters’ wintry demeanor and finds herself distracted by Cole Hardwick’s warm heart? Will she be able to uncover her family’s history even as the elders’ grip tightens around her throat? In an action packed ride full of magic and misery, terror and triumph, Sadie Matthau seeks the Survivors’ beginning just in time to face her end.
About the Author
Amanda Havard has been telling stories since before she could write. She grew up in Dallas, Texas, where her first book was published in her elementary school library at age 7. She received Bachelor and Master degrees in education from Vanderbilt University. She currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee with her baby grand piano and more story ideas than she could tell in one lifetime.
My Take on the Book
This was a great sequel to the first book from the Survivors series. If you thought that first book had twists and turns watch out as the author even more in store for you this time. Not only is there adventure and intrigue, but you also are shown some great connections between the characters. In fact, one of the things that I love best about the author's writing is her ability to weave a tangled web of characters together in such a way to engage the reader, pulling them in so that they want to read more. This was definitely a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and you will continually be wondering what will come next. This was a great book that I highly recommend to all!
