Recoil is worth reading

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 | Review by: Crystal

Recoil by Joanne Macgregor is a very good addition to the genre of teenage dystopian fiction. The world building is interesting and convincing, set in a plague ridden America, where people are largely confined to their homes for safety. Teenagers spend most of their free time playing an online game. Jinx discovers that The Game is being used to identify useful skills and recruit teenagers to be trained in the war against the plague, and the terrorists who are spreading it. We follow her through training, active duty and the dawning realisation that her role in the war is more morally complex than she first thought. Well-developed characters, good writing and strong plotting make a terrific read.

Recoil is an unpredictable, fast-paced, exhilarating ride. While I have been avoiding dystopia lately, tired of the predictability and lack of originality I am so glad I accepted this ARC from Joanne Macgregor a well-known, talented South African author whose previous books have been amazing. Recoil did not disappoint in fact I was glued to the book as I rushed to the finish trying to pace myself so it would last. Brilliant world building, characters that you’ll wish were your friends and a fresh, exciting storyline that will glue you to your seat. I really hope we will not have long to wait for the second book in this trilogy which promises to be one of the best YA dystopian I have read. Full review http://crushingcinders.com/4315-2
