The world ended long before Caroline Mathers was born, but that doesn't mean life stops for the fourteen-year-old army scout for the People's Republic of Virginia.
With a civil war brewing on the horizon, she slinks through the forests surrounding her encampment, monitoring the woods for nomadic bands of criminals, all while keeping a watchful eye on her dangerous northern enemies from the Democratic Alliance.
Caroline's worst fears come true the day she hears the terrifying boom of distant drums beating to the war rhythm, echoing throughout their quiet valley. With some help from two unlikely allies, Caroline leads her people in a breathtaking retreat, praying they'll find salvation in their capitol city. Along the way, haunting dreams may reveal a look into her mystifying past.
The first book of the Warchild series is a dystopian thriller full of fast-paced action, tough choices, and the undeniable strength of the human bond.
As a 26 year-old Sci-Fi and Fantasy reader I truly love this! Very fun aspects of reality as well as fun new ideas not real.55
For so long I’ve been craving to read a fantasy with a modern-day background, because it has become some sort of habit to write fantasies in medieval times, so that being the main reason I’ve picked the book; I appreciate the author for taking the initiative. Well I certainly do like to see a richer story in the next books, and hope to see the focus being on the features of modern times things, like guns and machines, and their roles in battles. Battles, I certainly wish to be more of it in the next ones. What mostly bothered me in the book was the writing technique, it somewhat felt that I was reading the thoughts of Caroline. What I wanted to read was merely the description of the author’s imaginations, not the character narrating from the start until the end. Truly, the most amazing moment was when Finn told the story of the revolution and the creation of Kinders. It’s amazing to read stories in stories, it’s a way to make the story more real and live in it, and of course it’s a proof that the present story has a foundation and what happens is not happening for no reason. Thanks for being creative. Though I don’t say nay for more of the quantity of the creations, and hope to see a more enriched story in the next books.35
I love this book. So much twists and adventure path change.55
I’m all about post apocalyptic war stories and this book definitely grabbed my attention the whole way through. Coming from a guy who hasn’t picked up a book in over 5 years.55
This was a fascinating beginning to a series of Apocalyptic event fiction. It clearly shows that Earths problems began with humans and have continued with them through the ages. It may be eyeopening for some but I fear many have issues with truth and choose to believe anything that excuses the behavior and attitudes that have led us to this point. Self interest is a very real device for many until events force them to see and experience truth!55
This is an excellent read. Keeps you wondering what is happening next and wanting to know more. Can't wait to download the other two books in the series and get started on them!55
I really liked it. Pleasant surprise. Going to get the other two right away. Can't wait to see what happens next.55
