Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Edition: Kindle Edition, 373 pages
Synopsis: The world is divided between humans and cyborgs.
Scarlet Lock is neither.
She is a soldier created to kill on command. But her memory has been erased and when she awakens in a government facility she soon discovers that this new world is a dangerous place, full of government secrets and cruel experiments performed in the name of progress.
With the help of a group of cyborgs, Scarlet will fight to uncover the truth and transform the future of the new world she now lives in.
Eternal Darkness is full of suspense, action and romance and will make readers question what it means to be human.
As I haven’t read many dystopian novels, I found it really interesting to read Eternal Darkness and find out another view on how our world could be one day.
The plot…was compelling and complicated, but in a good way. I felt like this book was a beautiful house with many nooks and crannies to be explored, and I wanted to find out about every single one of them!
The characters…I felt mixed towards them. On one hand I really liked Scarlet and felt very intruiged to find out more about her. But there was a part of me that really didn’t like the instant attraction between certain people and didn’t understand the moods and views of others.
I also couldn’t help but find some characters very confusing. There was just a lot of them, and I found it hard to keep track of who was who…which unfortunately made me feel a little disconnected from the story at times.
The writing…what can I say? I couldn’t fault it! It fit perfectly with the book and plot, matching the fast paced plot changes and compelling story with ease.
Something I liked…the plot. Honestly, Eternal Darkness could be the next big dystopian series. I enjoyed it that much. Overall, the complicated but intruiging plot made the book for me!
Something I disliked…only really the confusion with characters at times. Maybe it would have helped to have had less characters or more viewpoints?
My rating is…
