Today’s Team review is from Teri, she blogs at http://teripolen.com/
Teri has been reading The Dead Lands by Dylan J Morgan
Another Dylan J.Morgan book – another thrilling read! A combination of sci-fi, horror, and post-apocalyptic elements, The Dead Lands is a gritty, action-packed novel.
From the beginning, the reader knows the mission to Hemera is expected to fail and it doesn’t take long for the characters to realize the same thing – but that doesn’t stop them from fighting for survival, making it easy to root for most of them. Some, I was rooting for the mutants to tear into. The novel is full of conflict – not only between the characters themselves, but also with what they encounter on Hemera.
I’ve always liked this author’s writing style – clear and concise, no wasted words and he has a gift for descriptive writing, allowing the reader to picture Hemera and everything the characters experience (the smells are revolting – I don’t think these guys got a breath of fresh air throughout the novel).
There’s a somewhat surprising twist at the end and I’m glad to know a sequel is in the works. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy sci-fi, thrillers, action, and a touch of horror.
I received a copy of this book through Rosie’s Book Review Team in exchange for an honest review.
