Captives





Synopsis:


One choice could destroy them all.

When eighteen-year-old Levi returned from Denver City with his latest scavenged finds, he never imagined he’d find his village of Glenrock decimated, loved ones killed, and many—including his fiancée, Jem—taken captive. Now alone, Levi is determined to rescue what remains of his people, even if it means entering the Safe Lands, a walled city that seems anything but safe.

Omar knows he betrayed his brother by sending him away, but helping the enforcers was necessary. Living off the land and clinging to an outdated religion holds his village back. The Safe Lands has protected people since the plague decimated the world generations ago … and its rulers have promised power and wealth beyond Omar’s dreams.


Meanwhile, their brother Mason has been granted a position inside the Safe Lands, and may be able to use his captivity to save not only the people of his village, but also possibly find a cure for the virus that threatens everyone within the Safe Lands’ walls. Will Mason uncover the truth hidden behind the Safe Lands’ façade before it’s too late?

    The most important parts of a book review are the characters and the plot. I want to know if I'm going to like the people I'm reading about and if I'm going to like what they do.

    The most important part is probably either the quick synopsis or a description of the characters. Both are really important to me. If the synopsis sounds bad, I don't want to read it. If the characters sound awful, I don't want to rad it either.

  1. Character descriptions of the major characters, especially the protagonist/narrator.

  1. To me, the most important part of a book review is the overall feelings that one had whilst reading it. I'd like to know how someone felt.

    A quick synopsis, or at least the setting so that the genre and time period are roughly established.
    Personal reactions are also good to include in a good book review.

  1. I like a quick synopsis of the book with a few major characters described.

    quick summary of the book, letting me know if there are any cliffhangers or no HEA

    if the reviewer feels the characters are 3 dimnensional/engaging :) thanks for sharing!

  1. The reviewer's opinion of the book overall. Details, synopses, and character descriptions are all well and good, but I want basically how that person felt about the book. Did they like it or not? What was the overall feeling they got from it? That sort of thing.

    i don't really read book review, i want to find out about the book by reading it myself.

  1. Information about the characters.

  1. For me I look for how well written the story is. If the author rushed parts like the romance. That's what I look for.

  1. NO SPOILERS!!! I'm not a huge fan of including quotes either, because then when I read them in the story, I know I've already seen them before. I'm also a sucker for gifs, so that's always a plus :)

    I like a synopsis of the story, telling enough about it so you can decide if it's something you would enjoy reading. Thank you for the giveaway!

  1. Christine N. said...:

    the rating and how slow/fast the storyline is

  1. Nicki B said...:

    I like to see what the reviewer's personal thoughts about the book with examples

  1. meryvamp said...:

    The overall execution of the story. Did the story even make sense? DId it keep you on the edge of your seat? And were the characters compelling and believable? Basically, an intelligent review that highlights what made this story better or worse than others they've read.
