Shelter

3.5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Sisters were two asteroids that struck the earth and almost annihilated the entire world. For almost a century storms ravaged the earth, making survival barely possible. In England pockets of survivors eek out a living in small communities. Most modern technology has not survived and the remnants of resources that remained after the asteroid strike are nearly gone. As civilization tries to rebuild, different tyrants emerge and cause chaos. In a small area of the country two strong families are at war and hundreds of people die in the ensuing battles.

This is book one of a series. The world building is pretty good. While the book was well written and there was plenty of action, I still found myself waiting and waiting to figure out what the point of the story was. It just seemed to meander and lacked focus. I guess I just like my fantasy a bit more direct than speculative. The book is interesting, however, and I recommend you read it.
