Wanted! – The words that fly into my head upon reading this title are, ‘Epic’ ‘Amazing’ ‘Incredible’! ! !
This is a post-apocalyptic tale set in the town of Faringdon. What I love the most about this story is the branch off from the norm. Most books of this genre go down the route of chaos and destruction after the end of the world. Instead the author has taken us along a more realistic path. It takes place a couple of hundred years after the collapse of society, electricity and technology are but a thing of the past. Interestingly the world has (in a way) gone back to its routes, incorporating a modern twist. I absolutely ADORED the idea of having horse drawn classic cars, in fact I want to own one of these myself!
I was also head over heels for Flick. Its very rare I develop a relationship with the female protagonist, but Flick was just kick ass and awesome in every way! As a matter of fact, the characters were brought to life in such a way that you couldn’t help having strong emotional ties to almost each and every one of them. For example, the mayor: he was a character you just loved to hate; he was so damn vile and twisted.
I’m super psyched to have had the opportunity to read this book and the author has my sincerest gratitude. I look forward to the next instalment of the Flick Carter series!
