Title: The Mother (Broken Tomorrow)
Author: Andrei David
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Dystopian
Dreamt into existence by an absolute Universal Entity, she has only one goal, to perpetuate Creation. Known as a god to many people, or simply 13 to the descendants of an elite class of warriors, she pursues her design despite unwillingly endangering humanity, already enduring the effects of a motionless Earth.
It falls upon people like Samantha or Lucian to mitigate that danger, be it of their own accord, or by 13's request, even when doing so irreparably changes their body, and most disturbingly, their soul. They battle immortal, eerily relatable creatures, explore prohibited and perilous places lost or abandoned long ago, all to further an agenda they barely understand.
Still, no sacrifice could compensate for the lack of items unheard of even in myth. That's where 13's successor comes in.
What an incredible ride this book takes the reader on. From the opening paragraph to the last spine-tingling paragraph, this book keeps the reader on edge. Strong female characters power this book. My fave has to be Ana who shows you can be more than you used to be but still essentially be you. The author presents the story from multiple story points. This fresh approach keeps the reader engaged, never being bogged down in one aspect.
The stark horror that is the Hasul is almost as horrifying as the prospect of the land with no planetary rotation. Isn't the almost invincible bad representational of the almost unfixable environmental problem impacting this world?
From start to finish the reader is taken for an incredible ride. I recommend this to every fan of Tolkien and GOT fans. This book has something for everyone. If you are ready for the next great story, buy this book!
